The Mazda CX-9 Redesign is Coming Soon

All signs are pointing to a full reboot of the largest pedestrian vehicle in the Mazda lineup, the Mazda CX-9. The current generation 2015 Mazda CX-9 has loads of function and performance, with a standard V6 engine and a spacious cabin with space for three rows of adults. Next up, the 2016 Mazda CX-9 redesign is set to be unveiled this fall at the 2015 LA Auto show, and from what we’ve heard so far it looks like it’s going to deliver even more of what Mazda drivers are looking for.

What Will the 2016 Mazda CX-9 Redesign Will Look Like?

While we wait for a more comprehensive unveiling of the 2016 Mazda CX-9 this fall, here’s a first glimpse at what we might expect from the new generation of this three-row crossover SUV:

  • Performance: While Mazda hasn’t yet popped the hood of the Mazda CX-9 and lets us take a peek inside, there are rumors that Mazda is going to fit it with some version of the turbocharged 2.5L inline-four that’s currently housed inside the Mazdaspeed 3 hatchback. If that’s the case, then we should expect high-level performance to be wedded to impressive fuel economy in a larger crossover SUV.
  • SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY: Over the past several years, Mazda has been trying to fully incorporate the entire suite of SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY across its entire lineup of vehicles. As that’s the case, with the 2016 Mazda CX-9 redesign we could see this crossover with updated direct injection capabilities from the engine, as well as a transmission displacement set to maximize power and fuel economy. Other possible updates in the SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY department could include regenerative braking and a lighter, more aerodynamic frame, but we’ll just have to wait and see what’s in store!
