Mazda Now Has An Authentic Flagship: Meet The New Mazda CX-9
|   Tuesday, November 24, 2015
At the Auto Show in Los Angeles the new generation Mazda CX-9 was revealed. The new Japanese SUV for the North American market received a design inspired by the KOERU concept. The KODO design language was perfect for the biggest Mazda SUV, making it more personal and dynamic.

With 5,065 mm in length the new CX-9 is 30 mm shorter than its predecessor, while the wheelbase has been lengthened by 55 mm, which means that there is more room for rear seat passengers.
Also, thanks to the longer wheelbase car access will be made easier.

The dynamic character is emphasized by the elongated hood too; this effect is achieved due to shifting the front pillars 100 mm to the rear.
The design of the CX-9 is categorically influenced by the Kodo language - see the with sharp optical blocks equipped with LED lights, the prominent grille, wide bosses, 18- to 20-inch rims, spoiler mounted on the roof, LED taillights, and the a line that carves profile.

Inside the SUV we have 7 seats, but it appears extremely dynamic due to the very low board and high tunnel, which practically excluded the traditional center console.
In terms of interior space, we must say that Mazda has worked hard on the sound insulation, using 24 kilograms of sound-absorbing material and much thicker windows. The premium aura of the CX-9 interior is accentuated by a Bose audio system with 12 speakers.

The list of facilities will also be a generous one, as for an authentic flagship: redesigned front chairs electrically adjustable, LED ambient lighting, multimedia system Mazda Connect with seven or eight inches screen, colored Nappa leather, aluminum inserts, and genuine Japanese rose wood inserts, supplied by a manufacturer of musical instruments. Between the two onboard analog clocks a 4.6-inch color screen will make its appearance. But the most important novelty is the new SKYACTIV-G 2.5T unit.

Being based on the powerful naturally aspirated 2.5-liter unit with 4 cylinders, which is found under the hood of the Mazda6 and Mazda CX-5 models, the new turbo-aspirated unit has the highest compression ratio among turbo units, 10.5: 1, receiving direct injection and turbocharging that generates an instant pressure of 1.2 bar, thanks to an innovative technology developed for the first time on a production model.

The result is more than enough: 227 hp (88 octane gasoline) or 250 hp (93 octane gasoline) and a huge torque of 420 Nm. The new turbo propeller is mated to an automatic 6-speed gearbox, which will transfer the power to the front wheels or to all four wheels when the wheel drive system is engaged, i-ACTIV AWD, the latter being able to analyze road conditions and efficiently distribute torque.

The main elements of the engine include Mazda Dynamic Pressure Turbo, the world's first turbine, which maximizes performance by varying levels of exhaust pulses, depending on the engine speed.

The cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), enables the engine to maintain the ideal air-fuel ratio, providing optimum amount of oxygen needed for the combustion of fuel, this happening on a wide range of power.

Mazda wants to sell at least 50,000 copies annually in the US, the sale of which is scheduled for spring 2016.
