All-wheel Drive Performance

Mazda CX-9 in the streetThe Mazda CX-9 is known and loved for its nimble performance, especially when equipped with an i-ACTIV AWD® drivetrain. Fortunately, this drivetrain is expected to be standard throughout the Mazda CX-9 Iine-up, eliminating the previously standard front-wheel drive.

With all-wheel drive (AWD), your Mazda will be constantly on the lookout for changes in the road and automatically adjust the amount of power it sends to each wheel to help ensure that you have optimal grip and traction at all times.

The base Sport trim is expected to carry a 2.5L Turbo I-4 engine that generates 227 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. However, a 6-cylinder engine option might show up as an option for this lineup so that drivers who want more power can have it.

Even with its refined and powerful engineering, you should still expect a great fuel economy for this midsize SUV. On the 2021 model with i-ACTIV AWD®, you would have an EPA-estimated 20 city/26 highway MPG.2

Accommodating Interior

Mazda CX-9 InteriorThis 3-row SUV is perfectly suited to families, with the first two rows offering plenty of room for adult passengers and the third being the optimal playground for younger passengers. The 2021 Mazda CX-9 offers these accommodating dimensions:

  • Headroom (front/second/rear): 39.3 inches/38.5 inches/35.4 inches
  • Legroom (front/second/rear): 41 inches/39.4 inches/29.7 inches
  • Shoulder room (front/second/rear): 57.9 inches/58.1 inches/53.1 inches

The 2022 Mazda CX-9 is expected to be the same size as the previous year’s model, so these measurements are likely to carry over. Plus, you’ll probably also be able to choose between a bench, available second-row captain’s chairs, or a center walkthrough depending on the trim.
