Superior Style and Performance in the New 2021 Mazda CX-9

Not all three-row SUVs are created equal, and the new 2021 Mazda CX-9 stands out above the crowd. The new Mazda CX-9 is stylish, technologically advanced and has more pep in its drive than many crossovers. For these and many other reasons, the 2021 Mazda CX-9 was named a Car and Driver 2021 Editors’ Choice for a mid-size SUV. Ditch the minivan and enjoy the drive again in a sophisticated 2021 Mazda CX-9.

The Mazda CX-9 is best known among driving enthusiasts for its athletic handling and engaging driving dynamics. Light on its feet, you won’t feel like you are driving a three-row SUV but a smaller, sporty crossover. Firm suspension and responsive steering allow for superior cornering and a smooth ride over rough roads.

The seven-seat Mazda CX-9 is also a 2021 IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award winner. The Top Safety Pick+ is the highest designation awarded by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), an independent, nonprofit scientific and educational organization. In fact, every 2021 Mazda model tested by the IIHS received the Top Safety Pick+ distinction!

Mazda’s i-ACTIVSENSE® suite of safety features is to thank for making the new Mazda CX-9 such a safe ride. Standard safety features include:

  • Smart City Brake Support with Day and Night-time Pedestrian Detection
  • Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert 
  • Lane Keep Assist
  • Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go

Every 2021 Mazda CX-9 features the new SKYACTIV®-G 2.5 Turbo four-cylinder engine, giving the SUV up to 250 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque, when filled with premium fuel. FWD is standard, but Mazda i-ACTIV® AWD with Off-Road Traction Assist is available on every model and standard on the Mazda CX-9 Signature. You’ll get up to 28 mpg* with FWD or 26 mpg* with AWD.
