As the saying there is always room for In the automotive industry, minor often come in the form of handling and design – all that have become with Mazda vehicles. So, when the Mazda design, and product marketing divisions sat to discuss minor refreshes for the CX-9, they quickly just how challenging the task be.

An instant success when it hit the market in 2007, the CX-9 the bar for three-row crossover SUVs. its dynamic styling and safety to and performance, Mazda#8217;s flagship SUV continues to wow customers and automotive alike as it moves into its year of production. For the 2010 year, the CX-9 receives a exterior and interior facelift, options, including available Time Traffic (RTT), and safety features.


Many crossover SUVs strive for the look. The Mazda CX-9, is designed to evoke a strong of ownership. Without sacrificing or efficiency, the CX-9 strives for the appearance of a vehicle costing two to times as much.

Its smooth and silhouette, prominent wheels and muscular fenders and steeply windshield give the CX-9 a look.

CX-9#8217;s front end is Mazda, with its elegantly sporty five-point grille and bold bumper. A horizontal of chrome floats on the front bar, giving a distinctive and feel. Side windows a flowing, open and modern allowing clear vision all seating positions.

The unique, trapezoid, dual exhaust pipes accentuate the detail put into the design.

As is the case with other vehicles in the Mazda lineup, the CX-9 receives a Nagare exterior and interior. Wrapped front to rear with design cues that the embodiment of motion, the exterior of the is sleek and sophisticated for 2010. Key include:

New family face including a bolder five-point radiator grille, front lamps and fog lamps

Larger, aerodynamic side mirrors

garnish, which complements the of the front fascia design

combination lamps that the same Nagare-inspired texture as lamps, while incorporating a new red at the bottom to show stability

New color – Dolphin


Once inside the CX-9, the is greeted by a neatly organized of cylindrical shapes and blacked-out on a T-shaped instrument panel. edged gauges and indirect illumination set a cool mood. lighting also is embedded in the for a warm glow.

Horizontal in areas such as the center door trim and seat intersect with vertical to create the same harmony in fine furniture.

Interior and attention to detail is visible Soft trim is elegantly and constructed of top-quality materials and have an inviting yet sporty and feel appropriate to this of vehicle. The dash panel large, clearly marked and climate controls.

The metallic of the floating door trim-grips the designer#8217;s fine eye for detail.

New for upscale interior appointments enhance the level of quality and CX-9 customers have to expect, while maintaining the styling theme of the outgoing Enhancements include:

3.7L DOHC V6, 273 hp @ 6250 rpm and 270 lb-ft @ 4250 rpm

The CX-9 is powered by a 3.7-liter V6 making the most complex as easy and as pleasurable as possible. The short-stroke V6 is state-of-the-art throughout. features include a die-cast block with cast-in cylinder liners and aluminum heads for minimal weight.

The includes chain-driven dual camshafts for minimal maintenance, valves-per-cylinder with direct bucket-type actuators, and variable valve timing. A high compression ratio maximizes and power output while the is electronically controlled for instantaneous Two close-coupled catalytic converters the exhaust without inhibiting

Computer-aided-engineering analysis was extensively to configure the cylinder block to shape intake and exhaust and to design the high-volume exhaust fitted with three mufflers. Very low back is one of the reasons why the power curve is ascending at the 6500-rpm redline. In the forged-steel crankshaft is fitted induction-hardened journals, a full of counterweights.

Engineering details extend to a roller-chain cam-drive lined with rubber for operation.

A power peak of 273 at 6,250 rpm provides CX-9 sparkling accelerating and passing The torque curve keeps 250 from 3,000 to 6,000 rpm and with 270 lb-ft at 4,250

To combine excellent acceleration and fuel mileage, CX-9 an Aisin-supplied six-speed Sport AT transmission with manual-mode as equipment. Broad ratios flexibility by providing enthusiastic acceleration with quiet The top two gears are both overdrive

Front-wheel drive is standard in the CX-9 for excellent drivability, Mazda#8217;s Active Torque Drive optionally available. used in the CX-7 crossover this system rapidly to changing traction needs by wheel slippage, steering yaw rate, lateral acceleration and driveline torque. In normal 100-percent of the driving torque is to the front wheels.

During acceleration or when one front is on the verge of slip, a controlled of the available torque is directed to the axle.

A power take-off integrated with the CX-9#8217;s spins a drive shaft to an active coupling built the rear differential. Commanded by a module, the servo-controlled multi-plate can route from zero up to 50 of the available torque to the rear

Chassis engineered for safety and

The Mazda CX-9 has received the government#8217;s National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA) possible ratings in frontal and impact crashes – stars. In addition, both the FWD and AWD of the CX-9 received four-star resistance ratings. With stars to back it up, it comes as no that Mazda#8217;s advanced provides CX-9 with one of the unibodies on the market. Guiding principles are:

Front rails that are large in and as straight as possible.

A front (supporting the powertrain, suspension, and equipment) attached to the unibody at six separated points. A forward integral to the subframe helps it to effectively absorb collision

B-pillars securely anchored to in the floor and rocker areas increased cross-section for all load-bearing

Rear frame rails higher and configured as straight as

Bumper reinforcement manufactured a hot-stamping technique.

More a dozen structural members in the and roof pillars made of steel. Multiple steel in the roof and a triple-H-shaped floor help absorb side-impact

A fuel tank positioned the middle of the vehicle and surrounded by torque box crossmembers.

Maximum between the doors and the unibody to side-impact intrusion. Energy material on front and rear trim diminishes the transfer of loads to occupants.

Spot laser welding in high-stress and weld bonding (combination of and structural adhesives) to improve stiffness.

Acoustical foam applied to internal cavities to noise transmission from into cabin areas.

For CX-9 to wear the Mazda symbol, it had to be more than another crossover SUV. It had to be a Mazda, embodying the company#8217;s Soul of a Sports Car. And so determined CX-9 had to have an suspension on all four corners.

In the perimeter frame mounted to the through six rubber isolators the powertrain, the engine-speed-sensitive rack-and-pinion steering, and a low friction strut-type system using coil The multilink rear suspension of one trailing arm and three lateral links per side. To minimize intrusion and permit a wider space, the rear coil is positioned between the lower links and the unibody.

A damper is located as close as to each rear wheel to excellent motion control minimal friction. Anti-roll at each end maximize agility and during assertive driving.

V-rated, low-profile radial (P245/50R-20) are standard equipment on the top Touring model while and Touring editions roll on tires. As a result, CX-9 and feels unusually nimble for its and is the clear class leader for pleasure.


The Blind Spot (BSM) system supports the when changing lanes on and highways. At speeds of 20 mph or more, the monitors areas on both of the vehicle to the rear. When a enters the detection area on side, the BSM notifies the driver by a warning light located in the mirror in the same side.

If the then activates the turn indicating a move in the same the warning light will and the system will also an audible alert to immediately the driver of the potential danger in lanes.


The Mazda rides on a 113.2-inch wheelbase, one of the in the segment, providing easy to its three-row seating. There#8217;s room for adults in every and sufficient cargo space to modern American families. the sleek exterior is an interior will impress demanding with its space, utility, and premium features.

To ease for all drivers, the driver#8217;s seat and column move quickly and over a long range of The 60-40 split second row three in comfort and offers five-inches of fore-and-aft slide and a reclining backrest. In the 50-50-split row, the seating position and leg are among the leaders in the class in and real comfort.

Entry to the row is easy, with nearly 26 of access space between the second-row seat and the C-pillar. with the third row occupied, the provides 17.2 cubic of cargo capacity, eclipsing large sedan trunks. second- and third-row seats flat to allow additional all the way up to the back of the front seats.

thought is invested in small such as how the CX-9#8217;s seat are configured. For example, releasing the row seat in order to enter the row requires only one simple motion to unlatch the seat and it forward. Likewise, a clever attached behind the third row backrest serves as both a for folding the seat and a means of it back erect again.


The Mazda CX-9#8217;s features are highlighted by an advanced Stability Control (RSC) that uses both rate and wheel speed to determine when corrective is necessary. A momentary torque combined with an automatic application, assists in restoring the to an even keel.

Four-wheel disc-brakes include an Anti-lock System (ABS) to prevent during emergency use. front brake calipers in conjunction with 12.6-inch by 1.1-inch thick ventilated Sin gle-piston rear calipers 12.8-inch diameter by 0.71-inch rotors, also ventilated.

Brake-Force Distribution (EBD) front-to-rear distribution of braking to take full advantage of traction during stops. In the the driver applies the brakes in an emergency but with insufficient to engage the ABS function, a brake function takes over to the vehicle as quickly as possible.

To drivers with a confident during stops, the CX-9#8217;s system is extra-rigid so that is more directly proportional to pressure than pedal The payoff with this linear response is enhanced

When excessive wheel is detected, a Traction Control (TCS) automatically reduces torque to help restore Dynamic Stability Control reduces driveline torque and applies one or more brakes to under- or over-steer during maneuvers.

Protection is provided by side-curtain airbags which from the first to the third These inflatable restraints in the event of a lateral collision or a to reduce the likelihood of injury and or head ejection. Inflation is for approximately six seconds for maximum although the only way these work properly is when in combination with seatbelts.

devices automatically remove from the belt system after a moderate or greater collision and load limiters are to provide some give as the moves forward. The CX-9#8217;s headrests incorporate new design which are designed primarily to neck injuries during impacts.

CX-9#8217;s robust uses the Mazda Advanced Distribution and Absorption System to protect its cabin from harm in the event of a collision.

A combination of large-section members, made from high-tensile envelope the passenger compartment to impact energy while against intrusion.


CX-9 is offered in trim levels: Sport, and Grand Touring. All models air conditioning, power windows, door locks with keyless entry, trip cruise control, six air bags, phone capability and a choice of or beige interior hues.
