2017 Mazda CX-9 Review

Who would’ve thought that a third-row SUV could be so luxurious? Apparently, the engineers at Mazda thought so. That’s why they had the courage to dream up the Mazda CX-9. This state-of-the-art SUV sits at the very crossroad of opulence and performance.

That’s why our team at Ocean Mazda wrote this 2017 Mazda CX-9 review for our friends in Doral, Miami, Hialeah, Kendall, and the surrounding communities. If you have any questions about this exciting vehicle, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.


With the 2017 Mazda CX-9, it’s the third row that’s the real kicker; it allows you to seat up to seven people comfortably!

Just how comfortably? Well, let’s look at how much room your passengers can enjoy.

Front-seat riders will have up to 39.3 inches of headroom, 41 inches of legroom, 58.9 inches of shoulder room, and 56.7 inches of hip room. Second-row riders will get up to 38.5 inches of headroom, 39.4 inches of legroom, 58.1 inches of shoulder room, and 57.4 inches of hip room. Riders in the way back can take advantage of 35.4 inches of headroom, 29.7 inches of legroom, 53.1 inches of shoulder room, and 40.1 inches of hip room.

Furthermore, you’ll have ample room to transport all your stuff. The CX-9’s cargo capacity varies based on how you arrange the seats, from 21.5 cubic feet to 50.5 cubic feet to 84.9 cubic feet.


Here’s a brief list of some of this Mazda SUV’s best aspects, the ones that take its cabin to the next level.

  • Genuine rosewood center console
  • Satin-like aluminum dashboard
  • Premium Nappa leather upholstery
  • MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment system
  • 53 pounds of sound-proofing materials


Now that we understand what makes it purr, let’s find out what makes it roar.

Mazda’s standard SKACTIV®-G 2.5L turbocharged engine delivers as much as 227 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque.

Best of all, it doesn’t compromise on efficiency. With FWD (front-wheel drive) fuel economy ratings of 22 city MPG and 28 highway MPG, and AWD (all-wheel drive) fuel economy ratings of 20 city MPG and 26 highway MPG, you’ll thank yourself for choosing the CX-9.*


Last, but certainly not least, here’s an overview of the various available technologies that contribute to the Mazda CX-9’s versatile capabilities.

  • Predictive i-ACTIV AWD®
  • i-ACTIVSENSE® safety innovations

…and many more!
