Advantages of the 2021 Mazda CX-9
Compared to rivals the Mazda CX-9 is arguably one of the best-driving three-row crossovers on the market. The CX-9's lightweight body and sophisticated torque vectoring technology combine to create impressive cornering abilities but with a comfortable ride quality that still makes it ideal for moving a family. The turbocharged SKYACTIV®-G engine provides plenty of kick with 320 pound-feet of torque, allowing it to easily propel the big SUV to highway speeds even with a full cabin.
On top of its engineering highlights, the 2021 Mazda CX-9 is loaded with technology and has a more luxurious interior than rivals like the Volkswagen Atlas. Even the least expensive trim includes features like tri-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry and ignition, LED exterior lighting, heated front seats, a brilliant large 10.25-inch color touchscreen, rain-sensing wipers, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and the standard i-ACTIVSENSE® suite of safety features. The package includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control with stop and go, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane-keeping assistance, and automatic high beam headlights. And the feature offerings only become richer as you move up the lineup.
