Mazda CX-9 Interior

Poised on-road driving dynamics have always been a staple of any Mazda vehicle traveling around Gastonia, Charlotte, and Lincolnton. While that facet of the vehicle lineup continues to evolve and get better, the cabins of each Mazda also deliver high levels of refinement. Take the Mazda CX-9 interior, which we’ll be discussing in this review as an example. This SUV has a roomy cabin filled with rich materials and is enhanced by a wealth of technology systems.

Folks who experience the Mazda CX-9 for themselves at Mazda of Gastonia continue to rave about its overall package!

Top Cabin Features of the Mazda CX-9

Seating for Up to Seven

You’ll get spacious seating for up to seven passengers across three rows, including a total interior volume of 149.5 cubic feet.

Adaptable Cargo Area

Behind the rear seat, the CX-9 gives you 14.4 cubic feet of dedicated cargo space, but you can also fold down the last two rows to open up a max cargo volume of 71.2 cubic feet.

Reduced Cabin Noise

Thanks to more sound-reducing materials and insulated glass, the interior of the Mazda CX-9 is now better able to keep out engine, road, and wind noise.

Nappa Leather Upholstery

At the top of the trim ladder, the CX-9’s seats come with Nappa leather upholstery, giving your cabin a luxurious, comfortable, and stylish look.

How Much Interior Space Is Available?

From cargo capacity to passenger room, it’s preferred to have an SUV that’s cozy and practical. The Mazda CX-9 does a splendid job of carving out space in each row of its interior.

A tall roof affords 39.3 inches of front headroom, 38.5 inches in the middle row, and 35.4 inches in the rear. For long-limbed passengers, there’s also ample legroom measuring 41 inches up front, 39.4 inches in the middle, and 29.7 inches in the third row.

When you consider the entire space of the cabin, you end up with 135.1 cubic feet of total passenger volume.

Cargo space is another fine point. There are three arrangements you’ll want to keep in mind:

  • 14.4 cubic feet of cargo room behind the third row
  • 38.2 cubic feet of cargo room behind the second row
  • 71.2 cubic feet of cargo room behind the first row
