Unveiling the 2016 Mazda CX-9
November 19 2015, Sébastien Malo
The star of the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show at Mazda is without any doubt, the new 2016 Mazda CX-9 for which has undergone a complete metamorphosis.
Like the brand's other models, the CX9 now incorporates the Kodo design elements. This second generation of the CX-9 brings a new wind, a refinement in the choice of materials available, and now includes the SKYACTIV technology.
The CX-9 provides an exceptional experience for the occupants. In the cabin, Nappa leather can be match with Japanese rosewood in addition to already established aluminum accents on the dashboard and center console. The quality is just awesome.
But the maine surprise is the arrival of a Turbo SKYACTIV engine. This engine with an output of 250 horsepower and 310lb-ft is combined with a six-speed automatic transmission. But most important, is that the torque is available at low revolution (2000r / min). Obviously, it is matched with the i-Activ AWD system, which has already proven itself on the Mazda CX-5.
The release date of the 2016 CX-9 is scheduled for spring 2016.
