2013 Mazda CX-9
The largest vehicle in the lineup, the 2013 CX-9 is a mid-size SUV that seemingly towers over its Mazda brethren in size and maturity, yet behind the wheel feels just as sprightly and acts just as juvenile as the rest of the Zoom-Zoom lot. This is not a bad thing. Refreshed for the 2013 model year, the three-row, seven-passenger CX-9 receives KODO "Soul of Motion" design enhancements, the new familial look that began with the SHINARI Concept, as well as added technology features from the inside out. Unmistakably Mazda, the 2013 CX-9 has evolved into a dramatic yet refined design, like the grown-up in an expensive suit but sans expensive tie. Available in three trim levels -- Sport, Touring and Grand Touring -- the CX-9 is not one to discriminate and offers all consumers a mid-size SUV that delivers on dynamics and content as well as provides all occupants a front-row seat to sophistication and comfort.
2013 Mazda CX-9 Test Drive & Crossover SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/mazda/cx-9/2013/?id=32972 The Mazda CX-9 debuted in 2007 and was one of the first crossover SUVs to feature a 3rd row. Since that time the CX-9 has enjoyed great success on the market but has yet to receive a redesign like most the competition in this segment. For the 2013 model year Mazda has updated the exterior on the CX-9 which is more in line with some of the other vehicles they offer like the Mazda6. The base price on the 2013 Mazda CX-9 is $29,785 which makes it a great value and an excellent alternative to a minivan. Most crossover SUVs are operated by a 3.5 liter V-6. The 2013 Mazda CX-9 is no different. The engine is a 3.7 liter V-6 that makes a healthy 273 horsepower and 270 lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy is 17 MPG in the city and 24 MPG on the highway. Mazda offers the CX-9 in both FWD and AWD variants. The only transmission offered is a 6-speed automatic. The Mazda CX-9 is essentially an alternative to a minivan like the Dodge Caravan. Most buyers are going to be those with a family. The cargo area is very versatile as both the 2nd and 3rd row of seats fold down allowing you access to a ton of cargo room. The 2013 Mazda CX-9 is available in 3 different trim levels: Sport, Touring, and top of the line Grand Touring. When you opt for a fully loaded Grand Touring with AWD the price is upwards of $40k with all the bells and whistles. From a driving perspective, the 2013 Mazda CX-9 is very capable, it has a nice upright seating position, and it's very comfortable. There are a lot of great options when it comes to the crossover SUV segment. Despite being one of the oldest competitors in this segment, the Mazda CX-9 continues to look relatively fresh thanks to the new Kodo Styling Refresh. Expect a new CX-9 sometime in the near future, but for now this crossover SUV continues to be a great value.
