2019 Mazda CX-9 Gains Some Juicy Features Plucked From the Mazda 6

Update

Mazda's three-row crossover just got better.

Mazda has been on a bit of a roll lately, introducing a significantly revised 2019 MX-5 Miata and equipping the 2018 Mazda 6 with long-awaited Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality. Now the company is turning its sights to its three-row crossover, the CX-9, with a refreshed 2019 model. The 2019 CX-9 gains several features that were introduced on the 2018 Mazda 6, which will greatly improve its standing as one of the best-driving and most upscale models in its segment.

Like its sedan sibling, the CX-9 will benefit from the addition of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for the 2019 model year in Touring trim and above. Unfortunately, the Sport trim, which starts at $32,280 will not benefit from these phone-mirroring technologies. The CX-9 Touring starts at $35,330 for front-wheel-drive, while the Grand Touring trim starts at $40,840 (all-wheel drive is available for an additional $1,800). There will also be a top Signature trim with standard AWD, starting at $45,365.

In addition to CarPlay and Android Auto, the CX-9 will gain other Mazda 6 features such as a 360-degree camera, ventilated front seats, and SiriusXM Travel Link Services. Visually, the 2019 CX-9 looks the same as the 2018 model, but there are some significant changes under the skin. Mazda has retuned the suspension to create a smoother, quieter ride and added sound insulation with a thicker headliner and floor mats.

The CX-9 will continue to be powered by a 2.5-liter turbocharged SkyActiv four-cylinder producing 250 horsepower on 93-octane gas (or 227 horsepower with 87-octane gasoline) and 310 lb-ft of torque. Availability for the 2019 mode will be available starting this month at select dealerships, with full availability slated for September.
