Mazda CX-9 Performance

Performance in the Mazda CX-9 isn't as much about lap time as it is about inspiring confidence and a sense of capability as you drive. That 2.5-liter turbocharged engine delivers 250 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque, giving you plenty of punch when you put your foot down. Whether you're loaded down with luggage for a family road trip or towing a boat to the lake for a weekend away, this added power and torque will help you get up to speed with ease.

The intelligent all-wheel drive system gives you a leg up as well, offering a smart system that prioritizes fuel economy under normal driving circumstances by staying in front-wheel drive mode. However, when you put your foot hard down or find a loose surface like snow, mud, or dirt, the all-wheel drive system kicks in to help you out. It can spread power across all four wheels to aid in rapid, controlled acceleration, or help you find the grip you need to get out of deep snow, sand, or mud by shifting power to the wheels that are working and taking it away from those that are spinning.

Confidence-Inspiring Tech

There is more than just performance to give you confidence as you drive your 2021 Mazda CX-9 through Knoxville. The suite of advanced driver assistance features includes a forward collision alert system and automatic emergency braking to act as an extra set of eyes on the road ahead. The system detects both vehicles and pedestrians, warning you of a potential accident so you can take action. However, if you can't react quickly enough, automatic emergency braking is there as a backup to reduce the impact and, in some case, avoid the accident altogether.

Comfort for the Road Ahead

Whether you're on a daily commute or taking on an extended drive, the comfort of the new Mazda CX-9 is undeniable. Available heated and ventilated seats provide direct temperature control that you will appreciate on a chilly morning or long summer drive alike. Dual-zone automatic climate control and rear-seat vents keep your passengers happy throughout the day as well. Plus, a power-sliding panoramic moonroof is available, adding both a sense of grandeur and a breath of fresh air to the cabin when you need it.



Controls are intuitive, always where your hands want to go. With the multifunction Commander control, maps, playlists, contacts and more are at your fingertips. And with the MyMazda App on your phone, you're one tap away from Mazda Connected Services.3 Even when you're not driving, you'll still be connected.



Each element of the CX-9 was created for you to enjoy with those who matter most to you. Our standard i-Activsense® suite of sophisticated safety innovations can alert you to hazards and help you avoid collisions-or lessen their impact. Because the difference between a good drive and an inspiring one is confidence.
