2020 Mazda CX-9 Prescott AZ
This year, the Mazda brand’s lineup of crossovers expanded to four for the first time ever as it continues to grow. The oldest crossover on the lineup is the 2020 Mazda CX-9, which saw a few upgrades and enhancements of its own for the new model year and is now available right here in Prescott AZ.
The CX-9 was first introduced for the 2007 model year, alongside the CX-7. The latter was discontinued a few years later, just as the smaller CX-5 was introduced. Now, the lineup includes the CX-9, CX-5, CX-3 and the brand-new CX-30, which slots between the CX-3 and CX-5, toeing the line between subcompact and compact crossover. That makes the CX-9, a three-row midsize crossover, the brand’s flagship SUV.
Specs & Features of the 2020 CX-9
Perhaps the most exciting new feature for many shoppers is the all-new second-row captain’s chair option, allowing buyers to opt for a more comfortable second row while only sacrificing the seventh seat. In addition, the powertrain has been updated by a brand-new off-road traction assist technology and some enhancements to the 2.5L turbocharged engine that leave it with more maximum torque than its predecessor.
These upgrades and more, such as a host of premium features now being made standard, make the CX-9 more elegant than ever before. Some of these newly standard features include heated front cloth seats, the power driver’s seat featuring lumbar support, 18” aluminum alloy wheels in Gray metallic, rain-sensing windshield wipers, heated exterior mirrors, automatic headlights and the High Beam Control technology. Plus, the entire suite of safety features known as i-Activsense® is now standard as well, which includes Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go, Advanced Smart City Brake Support with pedestrian detection, Smart Brake Support with Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning with Lane-Keep Assist and Blind Spot Monitoring System with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.
