The November auto show that was held last year in Los Angeles was marked by the premiere of the Mazda CX 9 model in 2018. This car belongs to the second generation, replacing the previous version, which has been manufactured since 2006. The design of the novelty turned out to be more impressive than before, but the company’s features can be traced clearly. This car is an excellent option for a modern urban dweller. The new Mazda car will never be lost in a dense stream of vehicles. The car’s accessories receive new body shades, as well as stylish disks of different sizes.
Compared with the previous model, this car has improved on all fronts – he tried on the corporate design style “KODO”, acquired a more noble interior and a wide range of modern equipment, and under his hood “registered” a productive turbo engine.
EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR DESIGN
The appearance of the car Mazda CX 9 in 2018, the new body of which is admirable, and the complete sets and prices (photo) can be seen here, characterized by the presence of the following noteworthy details:
a bumper fairing located in the front of the car;
falshradiatornoy grating, having a modified form;
a number of parts that are covered with a layer of chromium;
small fog lights, having an original shape.
At the rear of the car a little changed the shape of the boot lid, which now looks quite original. The combination of rectangular shape of doors and parking lights is striking. In appearance, the car is like the Suzuki CX4 model.
The total length of the “second” Mazda CX-9 is 5065 mm, of which 2,930 mm is wheeled, and the width and height of its body reach 1961 mm and 1717 mm respectively.
The exterior of the Mazda CX-9 of the second generation is subordinated to the current design of the Japanese brand – it looks crossover boldly, beautifully and gracefully, from which side do not look. The deliberately aggressive front end demonstrates the “malicious glance” of the front lighting equipment and the large grille, and frying the forage flaunts the narrow LED lights and a powerful bumper into which the two exhaust pipes are integrated. The proportions of the full-size SUV are given by the “long-nosed” predatory silhouette with the front pillars shifted backwards and large strokes of wheel arches.
The interior space of the car has been thought through to the smallest detail, so the driver will feel comfortable. The steering wheel and armchair easily adapt to the dimensions of the driver through electrical adjustments. Even if you use the car by several drivers, you can save the settings for each of them.
Interior decoration Mazda CX-9 decorated in a rich and thoroughbred style, but it is not without sports aesthetics. A beautiful and laconic front panel, divided by an aluminum blade, is topped by a color screen of a 7-inch multimedia center and a stylish block of the zonal climate system. Behind the multifunction steering wheel with a three-spoke design, a stylish and informative toolbox is added, optionally supplemented with a 4.6-inch scoreboard.
In the second row of seats can fit three people. The central passenger will be forced to make a little space, since he has a half-place for him. They will be able to take advantage of the option to adjust the position of the backs of the seats, move forward and backward, as well as the climate control unit. In the third row, people of adolescence can freely fit in.
The torpedo made of high quality plastic, features a color screen designed to provide control of the audio system, navigation and the situation around the vehicle.
The trunk of the car has a volume of 267 liters. If you decompose the seats in the rear of the vehicle, this will increase the boot space to 1991 liters. This makes it possible to transport a significant amount of different cargo. To gain access to the trunk, you should use the rear door, equipped with an electric drive.
In the interior of the Japanese crossover of the second generation, high-quality finishing materials prevail – soft and pliable plastics, natural leather, as well as inserts from winged metal and rosewood. Salon CX-9 is divided into seven seats, but if on the first and middle rows of seats riders are promised comfortable accommodation, the gallery is more focused on children.
Even with a seven-seat layout, the trunk of the SUV does not become conditional and holds 408 liters of load. “Galerka” is composed of two symmetrical parts, bringing up a stock of cargo space up to 1082 liters, and the second row of seats, divided in a ratio of 60/40, brings the capacity of the “hold” to 2016 liters (in both cases, a completely flat floor is obtained).
The second release of the Mazda CX-9 is powered by a gasoline 2.5-liter Skyactiv-G engine equipped with direct injection, a 1.2 bar turbocharger, a Dynamic Pressure system that simulates the functioning of a turbine with variable geometry, and EGR cooled refrigerant recirculation technology. Ultimately, the turbo engine produces 231 horsepower at 5000 rpm and 420 Nm of torque, which is achieved from 2000 rpm. By default, it is aggregated with a 6-step “automatic” and intelligent all-wheel drive system i-ACTIV AWD with a multi-disk clutch, which is electronically controlled. “Maxima” car rests at 208 km / h, and acceleration from the site to the first “hundred” it fits in 8.6 seconds.
In the combined mode of movement, the five-door “digests” from 9.6 to 10 liters of gasoline for every 100 km of the route. The all-terrain vehicle is based on a stretched version of the Mazda 6 platform with extensive use of high-strength steels in the body structure and independent suspension on both axles – the McPherson-type front posts and the multi-link rear architecture. The Mazda XX-9 of the second generation has a rack-and-pinion steering gear with electric power steering, and all its wheels are equipped with disc brakes (diameter of front devices – 320 mm, rear ones – 325 mm) with ABS, EBD, BAS and other systems.

The basic version of the novelty is equipped with an all-wheel drive, although there is a mono-drive variant. The wheelbase of the car is quite impressive, reaching 2930 mm.
