2020 Mazda CX-9

2020 Mazda CX-9 Test Drive Review: A Breath Of Fresh Air

by Ian Wright

Mazda's CX-9 has now proven that Mazda can take its ethos of building smaller fun to drive vehicles and bestow that upon the three-row crossover segment. The Japanese brand has managed that while also turning away from the V6 engines common in the CX-9's rivals like the Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander. Power comes from a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder powerplant all through the range, and with 250 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque on tap, drivers will appreciate both its vigor and fuel economy figures. Drivers and passengers will both appreciate the i-Activsense safety suite that's now standard on every CX-9.

While we love the handling and fuel economy for such a big vehicle, it's not at the expense of things the whole family can appreciate. The CX-9's ride is smooth, the interior is refined, and seats seven as standard. Mazda's three-row crossover is not perfect, but in a world of stodgy crossovers, it's still capable and a breath of fresh air.

2020 Mazda CX-9 Changes: 🚙What’s the difference vs 2019 CX-9?

While nothing has changed for the Mazda CX-9 mechanically, there have been a host of improvements when it comes to the quality of life. The newest Mazda CX-9 models now come standard with the i-Activsense safety suite, comprising forward collision avoidance, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and adaptive cruise control. The front seats come heated as standard, too, and the driver gets a power-adjustable seat with power lumbar. Each trim above the base Sport now gets a larger nine-inch touchscreen with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Touring now offers the available second-row captain's chairs and comes standard with a power liftgate. There have also been changes to the interior palette for the top-tier Signature, which is the Mazda CX-9 we had the opportunity to review on test.

Pros and Cons

  • Capable and efficient turbo four-cylinder
  • Impressive handling
  • Spacious and high-quality cabin
  • Loads of features come standard
  • Can seat seven in standard configuration
  • Trunk is a bit smaller than most rivals'
  • Doesn't have the best towing capacity
  • Third-row seats are only suitable for children

Mazda CX-9 Exterior

Covered in sleek sheet metal, the CX-9 employs the brand's Kodo "Soul of Motion" design language, with the result being a sleeker look than most three-row midsize SUVs. Instead of a mesh grille, the CX-9 gets a grille with five horizontal bars. Astride the grille are LED headlights, with available LED fog lights lower down in the bumper. The Sport and Touring ride on 18-inch alloy wheels, while the Grand Touring and Signature get larger 20-inch alloys. All models get dual exhaust tips, and a power tailgate comes outfitted to each model above the base Sport. LED turn signals and rear privacy glass come standard, too, while the upper trims get aluminum roof rails.

Dimensions

With an overall length of 199.4 inches and a 115.3-inch wheelbase, the Mazda CX-9 is on the longer side of the midsize crossover segment, with dimensions fitting for its three-row interior. However, it's not as wide as some rivals at 77.5 inches in width meaning it loses a bit of cargo capacity. If you wanted to drive on a dirt road or climb the sidewalk, the 8.8 inches of ground clearance should help. Despite this extra height below the carriage, the CX-9 isn't overly tall, standing 69 inches with the shark fin antenna attached. However, it is a bit heavier than some competitors, with a curb weight of 4,225 pounds in its lightest guise and 4,388 lbs in its heaviest.

  • Length 199.4 in
  • Wheelbase 115.3 in
  • Height 67.6 in
  • Max Width 77.5 in
  • Front Width 65.3 in
  • Rear Width 65.2 in

Exterior Colors

While it may be a pretty sleek and handsome SUV, the Mazda CX-9 isn't available in a particularly wide array of colors. The standard palette for the base-level Sport consists of only Deep Blue Crystal and Jet Black, while Snowflake White Pearl can be added for $200, and Machine Gray Metallic for $300. The upper trims get Sonic Silver as an additional standard choice and Soul Red Crystal Metallic as a $595 premium choice. The top-tier Signature can't be dressed in Deep Blue Crystal, though.

The automaker is doing an excellent job on colors, and Soul Red Crystal Metallic is worth the extra cost on the Mazda CX-9. Most will go for black, white, or grey, but if the red is too overt for those wanting a different color, then we recommend checking out the Deep Blue Crystal. It's not over the top, but it does accentuate the CX-9's deliberate curves and contours.

Mazda CX-9 Performance

Unlike many of its rivals, the CX-9 doesn't offer any additional engine or transmission options over what comes standard. As a result, performance is pretty standard regardless of the trim you choose. While many rivals are still sticking with naturally aspirated V6 engines, the turbo-four under the hood of Mazda gives it a bit of an edge. Where the Toyota Highlander makes the 0 to 60 mph sprint in 7.6 seconds, the CX-9 can do the same in 7.2 seconds. However, V6-powered rivals can outperform the Mazda when it comes to outright towing power. Properly equipped, the Highlander and Ford Explorer can tow up to 5,000 lbs, while the CX-9 maxes out at 3,500 lbs.

Every model of the CX-9 gets access to the all-wheel drivetrain, which comes standard on the top-tier Signature. This is pretty standard for the segment, though, so the Mazda doesn't stand out in this regard.

Engine and Transmission

While there may only be a single engine available to the Mazda CX-9 range, at least it's a pretty darn good one. The 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder comes mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox that directs 250 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque to the front wheels as standard, with all-wheel-drive available to every trim. Only the Signature trim can't be equipped with the standard front-wheel drivetrain.

Looking at horsepower alone, the CX-9 doesn't look that impressive. But, when you take into consideration its high torque output, that opinion quickly changes. All that torque on tap gives the Mazda crossover impressive acceleration and makes it a dream to drive around town where low-speed acceleration is the name of the game. However, this effortless acceleration also helps when merging or passing on the highway.

While people that regularly haul a trailer won't be impressed with the 3,500 lbs towing capacity, those that only need to cart the family around will enjoy Mazda's Skyactiv-G turbocharged four-cylinder power plant. With more torque than horsepower available, it's quick off the line, and hitting top speed with power to spare is not a problem. For commuters, the mix of torque and Mazda's smooth six-speed automatic transmission makes stop and start traffic a breeze. On paper, a six gear transmission in a market full of nine and ten-speed units should be out of date. However, the six-speed is as close to flawless at being in the right gear at the right time as we can expect.

Getting out of town with the family, the engine and transmission meld with the chassis for a car-like driving experience. On your own, the temptation is always to have some fun where other large crossovers have a habit of becoming laborious to drive.

Handling and Driving Impressions

The CX-9's handling dynamics truly set it apart from its rivals, although some are starting to catch up as it heads into its fourth year of this generation. Nobody is quite there yet, though, and enthusiasts will enjoy the grip and agility of a vehicle half its size. The G-Vectoring torque system and well-tuned suspension make the CX-9 surprisingly nimble, which is to its advantage both around town and out on country roads. The retuned suspension minimizes body roll and keeps things composed, and it's not until reaching particularly rough-cut roads that its firmness starts to affect ride quality negatively.

Ride quality is bolstered by good insulation in the cabin from road and wind noise, and freeway miles are eaten up with quiet ease. In the city, the CX-9 never feels sluggish and is easy to maneuver in tight areas. The available all-wheel-drive system is set up for inclement weather, but it'll also help out when soft-roading up to a hiking or picnic area.

Mazda CX-9 Gas Mileage

The CX-9 is one of the more fuel-efficient midsize SUVs on the US market. In its standard front-wheel-drive guise, it gets an EPA-estimated 22/28/24 mpg across the city/highway/combined cycles. The all-wheel drivetrain loses a little bit of efficiency across the board, getting only 20/26/23 mpg. Our test drive model was an All-Wheel-Drive model, and after a healthy mix of freeway, city, and mountain driving, we matched up with the EPA estimated 23 mpg combined. Still, the Mazda fares well in comparison with its rivals, with the Honda Pilot getting 20/27/23 mpg at best, while the Kia Telluride gets 20/26/23. The difference in gas mileage between front- and all-wheel-drive models is offset by different fuel tank capacities, with the 19-gallon item on FWD models yielding an estimated range of 456 miles, while the larger 19.5-gallon capacity on the AWD yields just shy of 450 miles. While the CX-9 can run on regular unleaded gasoline, peak power outputs are achieved when running premium.

Mazda CX-9 Interior

The cabin of the Mazda CX-9 is certainly impressive. High-quality materials and excellent craftsmanship combine to create an environment that is well-insulated and lavishly styled. The base Sport model might not have the most elegant trimmings, but it's still well-appointed, with a power driver's seat and plenty of standard features. Lay out a little more cash for an upgrade in trim level, and you get more elegant metal or wood trims, higher-quality leather upholstery, and even more advanced tech. The interface for the infotainment suite is easily accessed and operating it requires little effort. There is plenty of passenger space in the first two rows, and the third row can accommodate children without fuss thanks to the tilt-and-sliding second-row seats. It's just a pity that the CX-9 doesn't impress as much when it comes to cargo capacity.

Seating and Interior Space

Up to seven passengers can be seated in the cabin of the CX-9, although all but the Signature trim can be equipped with more comfortable second-row captain's chairs, decreasing capacity by one. Those in the first and second rows won't want for space, with plenty of head- and legroom for most adults to fit comfortably. Second-row passengers get a roomy 39.4 inches of legroom and 38.5 inches of headroom, which is more than enough for a six-footer. However, the third row is less than ideal. Both leg and headroom are limited and suitable only for small children, or, at a push, the smallest adults in a group for short journeys. If a third row is going to be used regularly, shoppers may be better off looking elsewhere.

The driver gets an excellent ergonomic driving position with plenty of adjustment to get it just right. Both driver and front passenger get firm but comfortable bucket seats with plenty of support in the right places.

    7-seater
  • Front Leg Room 41.0 in
  • Front Head Room 39.3 in
  • Rear Leg Room 39.4 in
  • Rear Head Room 38.5 in

Interior Colors and Materials

Only the base-level Sport comes standard with cloth upholstery, with Black being the only color option. This is upgraded to genuine leather on the Touring and Grand Touring, which add Sand to the basic color palette. The top-of-the-range Signature trim gets the plushest Nappa leather upholstery, with color choices comprising Deep Chestnut or Parchment. At every trim level, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter come standard. The Sport gets the most basic plastic trim, while the Touring and Grand Touring get a more appealing aluminum trim. The genuine Santos Rosewood trim is exclusive to the top-tier Signature model. Every model gets a certain amount of plastic, but the doors and dashboard are usually covered in soft-touch material, with the higher trims getting more upscale leather-covered surfaces.

The CX-5's driving dynamics are one of the high points of the vehicle, and the interior quality and materials are another. Mazda has been embarrassing some more premium-priced vehicles with its interiors lately, and the CX-9 is an excellent example of that. Soft-touch materials are used in precisely the right places throughout, and not just in the upper-trim models. Our tester was the Signature trim model, though. Signature trim shows off what Mazda is fully capable of with the Santos Rosewood trim and Parchment-colored Nappa leather mixing to add an extra layer of airiness and class to an already remarkably pleasant interior.

New Mazda CX-9 SUV Trunk and Cargo Space

Equipped with a third row of seats as standard, the CX-9 has a slightly more cramped trunk than a standard two-row SUV. Behind the third row, there are 14.4 cubic feet of cargo capacity. This is only slightly behind the Honda Pilot (16.5 cubic feet), but it's far behind the 21 cubic feet available in the Ford Explorer and Kia Telluride. While there is enough space for most day-to-day errands with the rear-most seats up, folding them down frees up 38.2 cubic feet. Fold the second-row seats down, too, and you'll have 71.2 cubic feet, which is quite a bit below the Pilot's 83.9 cubic feet.

There's a fair amount of small-item storage around the cabin, though. The four doors all have well-sized pockets, and each row of seats gets a pair of cupholders. There is a center armrest storage bin on the standard models, while those equipped with second-row captain's chairs get an extra center armrest with its own cubby. There are several under-floor storage options, too.

CX-9 Infotainment and Features

Features

Right off the factory floor, the CX-9 comes equipped with a plethora of features, not least of which is the now-standard i-Activsense safety suite, comprising forward collision avoidance, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert. This is further supplemented with front and rear parking sensors, and a surround-view camera on the upper trims. The entry-level Sport comes with tri-zone climate control, remote keyless entry, push-button start, and cruise control. Mazda's advanced keyless entry and start is added on the Touring, along with a power liftgate, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The front seats come with heating as standard, which is also added to the steering wheel and second-row seats on the Grand Touring. Furthermore, front-seat ventilation and driver-seat memory are included at this level, supplementing the standard power-adjustable driver's seat. The standard cloth upholstery is upgraded to leather at the Touring level, then upgraded to Nappa leather when you move up to the top-tier Signature.

Infotainment

A Mazda Connect seven-inch touchscreen interface comes standard on the base-level Sport trim. Easily accessed and easy to use, the system comes programmed with Aha, Pandora, and Stitcher internet radio, along with Bluetooth functionality. The Sport only gets a six-speaker basic sound system, though. Once you upgrade to the Touring, the touchscreen is enlarged to a nine-inch model that adds Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. However, if you want the 12-speaker Bose premium surround sound system, you'll need to get the Grand Touring. Beyond this, it also adds Mazda navigation, SiriusXM, and a seven-inch driver information display. Two USB charging ports come standard on the Sport, with another two added for second-row passengers on the Touring.

The Mazda Connect infotainment system is responsive and boasts high-resolution graphics. However, it's going to take new owners a while to learn their way through the menu system. After the learning curve and a few "Aha!" moments, it becomes easy to use. There's no learning curve on the optional navigation system, though, which is clear and concise from start to finish.

While the main screen can be operated by touch, the CX-9's infotainment system is also controllable from the center console controls, and touch control is disabled while driving. Apple Carplay and Android Auto aren't standard on the base model, which is disappointing.

Mazda CX-9 Problems and Reliability

Very few complaints have been lodged against CX-9 in the USA over the last few years, with only two recalls issued in recent history. The most recent recall was in 2019, where some vehicles suffered from the tire tread detaching. Before that, 2018 saw a recall issued for the weak retention force of the wiring harness. This impressive track record is backed up by a high 80 out of 100 reliability and dependability score from J.D. Power. All new purchases are covered by a standard 36,000-mile/three-year limited warranty and a 60,000-mile/60-month powertrain warranty. Unlike rivals like the Toyota Highlander or GMC Arcadia, the Mazda CX-9 doesn't get any complimentary scheduled maintenance.

Mazda CX-9 Safety

The Mazda CX-9 gets extremely good safety ratings across the board. The NHTSA's review of the CX-9 resulted in an overall five-star rating, with four stars in the front and rollover crash tests. The IIHS has an even better opinion of the SUV, giving it an overall rating of Good and awarding it the Top Safety Pick+ award for 2020.

Key Safety Features

With its high safety ratings, it's no surprise that the Mazda CX-9 comes equipped with quite a number of standard safety features. It gets the basics, naturally, such as ABS, stability and traction control, and six airbags: dual front, front side, and side curtain. It also gets forward collision avoidance tech, pedestrian detection, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, and automatic high beam assist. Front and rear parking sensors are added at the higher trim levels, and LED fog lights can be equipped to supplement the standard LED headlights, improving visibility. A surround-view camera is available, too.

Verdict: 🏁Is the 2020 Mazda CX-9 a good car?

We are huge fans of the Mazda CX-9 as an SUV and family vehicle, but we are not blind to the fact that the class-leading driving dynamics come at a cost to cargo space and the usefulness of the third row. As an alternative to the two-row CX-5 for families that will find value in an occasional-use third row, the CX-9 is an excellent car. For families where the third row is part of everyday life, and plenty of cargo space is a necessity, they may want to look elsewhere. The CX-9 also falls behind rivals when it comes to towing capacity. However, it's a practical three-row SUV with quality levels that border on premium. The punchy engine, engaging chassis, and overall connection with the driver, however, can't be ignored. This is a midsize SUV for the family man or woman who has been forced to give up his sports car but can't give up their passion for driving.

🚘What’s the Price of 2020 Mazda CX-9?

Due to the small number of changes made for the new year, the Mazda CX-9 sees only a minor price increase for 2020. The entry point to the range is the Sport, with an MSRP of $33,890. The Touring is a modest step up from the base price to $35,710, while the Grand Touring takes a bigger price hike, adding another $5,840 to the final bill at $41,550. At the top of the range is the Signature, which comes standard with the all-wheel drivetrain. When you consider that all-wheel-drive adds $1,900 to the cost of the other trims, the Signature isn't that much pricier at $46,215. These prices exclude tax, registration, licensing, incentives, and Mazda's destination charge of $1,100.

2020 Mazda CX-9 Models

The Mazda CX-9 is available in four trim levels: the Sport, Touring, Grand Touring, and Signature. Every model is powered by the same engine, though - a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-pot mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox. Developing 250 hp and 310 lb-ft, this powertrain can be paired with a front-wheel or all-wheel drivetrain at every trim level, aside from the Signature, which comes standard with all-wheel-drive only.

The base-level Sport rides on 18-inch alloy wheels and comes equipped with automatic LED headlights, LED turn indicators, and LED taillights. The interior is upholstered in premium cloth, and the front seats both come heated as standard with a power-adjustable driver's seat. Standard features include cruise control, remote keyless entry, push-button start, and tri-zone climate control. A seven-inch touchscreen comes equipped with Bluetooth, AM/FM/HD Radio, and a six-speaker sound system, while safety is covered by the full i-Activesense safety suite.

The Touring upgrades to leather upholstery and gives the passenger seat power-adjustability. The infotainment display is upgraded to a nine-inch touchscreen, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are added. Mazda advanced keyless entry and an auto-dimming rearview mirror round out the interior features, while a power liftgate comes equipped on the outside.

Grand Touring models get larger 20-inch alloy wheels, LED foglights, and a power moonroof while the power liftgate gets hands-free functionality. Inside, SiriusXM and Mazda navigation are added to the infotainment suite, while a 12-speaker Bose surround sound system replaces the standard fare. A seven-inch driver information display is added, along with a surround-view camera, and front and rear parking sensors. Both the steering wheel and second-row seats gain heating functions, and the front seats get ventilation.

The top-tier Signature comes standard with the second-row captain's chairs. The upholstery is upgraded to premium Nappa leather and Santos Rosewood trims the interior. LED accent lighting is added inside, while the exterior grille gets similar treatment.

Additional Packages

The Mazda CX-9 comes very well equipped at every trim level, so there isn't all that much room for improvement. Nevertheless, some features are left off at the lower trims with the option to spec them on for a little extra. The Sport doesn't get Apple CarPlay as standard, and adding it will cost $200. Similarly, the Sport and Touring can add rear parking sensors ($500) and LED foglights ($450). Only two features sets fall under the traditional package options. The first is the available second-row captain's chairs, which can be equipped to the Touring and Grand Touring at no extra cost. The Touring can also option on the Touring Premium Package ($2,100), adding LED foglights, a power-sliding moonroof, front and rear parking sensors, SiriusXM, a 12-speaker Bose surround sound system, and dual third-row USB ports. For $450, every model can be equipped with a Class II trailer hitch.

🚗What Mazda CX-9 Model Should I Buy?

With the lack of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and the bump up to a larger screen, leather trim, power-adjustable passenger seat, and power liftgate, we would opt to skip the Sport trim and step straight into the Touring model at the very least.

Looking at the Grand Touring trim level, the luxury-level extras like 20-inch wheels, a moonroof, a seven-inch driver information display, a Bose sound system, and hands-free tailgate operability make sense for those that are going to spend a lot of time in the vehicle. However, we would opt for the middle ground here and go for the Touring trim plus the Touring Premium Package that adds LED foglights, the power-sliding moonroof, front and rear parking sensors, the Bose surround sound system, and extra USB ports. Adding the package gets a bunch of meaningful premium features while leaving money over to spend on a family getaway.

The Signature might offer near-premium levels of luxury, but for the discerning buyer, there's no need to opt for the Rosewood detailing and Nappa leather upholstery.

2020 Mazda CX-9 vs Mazda CX-5

Just a single tier below the CX-9, the Mazda CX-5 bears many similarities to its big brother. While the compact crossover may get an uninspiring 187-hp four-cylinder engine as standard, it does get access to the same turbocharged four-pot as the CX-9. Properly equipped, the smaller SUV can be quite a spirited driver while still offering the same quality interior and long list of available features as the more expensive CX-9. Naturally, you will be sacrificing a bit in terms of cabin capacity, since the CX-5 only seats five, and its standard cargo capacity of 30.9 cubic feet behind the second row can't match the CX-9's 38.2 cubic feet with the third row folded down. Still, there's a pretty significant price difference between the two SUVs, and you'll need to carefully consider your requirements. If you've only got a family of four or five, the CX-5 will definitely suit your needs just fine.

2020 Mazda CX-9 vs Honda Pilot

At more than $2,000 cheaper than the Mazda, the Honda Pilot is definitely tempting competition to consider when shopping around for a three-row SUV. In terms of sheer practicality for money, the Honda Pilot makes more sense, as it can more easily accommodate seven passengers, and it even has a bit more cargo capacity. But, looking at the bigger picture, the Mazda CX-9 seems to come out on top. Unless you're going to be squeezing six or seven into the SUV on a regular basis, the CX-9 is quite a bit more comfortable with its plusher, upscale interior. It also gets more standard and available features, along with an easy-to-use infotainment suite. Throw in significantly better driving dynamics and just a smidge better fuel economy, and you have a recipe for success. At the end of the day, it will come down to where your priorities lie, but the Mazda CX-9 seems to be better as an all-rounder.
