2019 Mazda CX-9 Feature Highlights
The biggest difference between the 2019 and the 2018 Mazda CX-9 is the availability of new technology. The 2019 iteration of the SUV gains a number of upscale features on the upper trims. With the exception of the base-level Sport, all 2019 Mazda CX-9 models gain standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration along with a Frameless Rearview Mirror. Grand Touring and Signature models also gain ventilated front seats, a 7-inch multi-information display, a 360° View Monitor, automatic power-folding side mirrors and SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link® Services.
Not shown among the updates in the table above is the 2019 model’s enhanced ride quality. The retuned suspension retains its impressive cornering ability but now returns a smoother and quieter ride over battered pavement.
The 2019 Mazda CX-9 sticks with the award-winning SKYACTIV-G 2.5T turbocharged engine found on the 2018 model, returning 250 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. Output is routed through a six-speed automatic transmission.
