MAZDA CX-9 Trim Levels

There are four Mazda CX-9 trim levels: the Mazda CX-9 Sport, the Mazda CX-9 Touring, the Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring, and the Mazda CX-9 Signature. The first three come in either FWD or AWD drivetrain configurations, whereas the top trim level is only available in i-Activ AWD®.

We know that’s a lot of information for the drivers around Gastonia, Charlotte, and Lincolnton, NC, to take in. That’s why our Mazda of Gastonia team has created this informative guide.

MAZDA CX-9 Sport: FWD or AWD

Mazda CX-9 SportThe Mazda CX-9 Sport is the base trim, and it’s a powerful base that the rest of the lineup builds upon.

Its standard Skyactiv® 2.5T 4-Cylinder Engine with Dynamic Pressure Turbo technology results in 250 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque, which should come in handy for you.

However, even your most exciting adventures shouldn’t run up your bill too high, regardless of whether you’re driving an FWD or an AWD model. FWD models achieve an EPA-estimated 22 city/28 highway MPG, while AWD models are still respectable at an EPA-estimated 20 city/26 highway MPG.1 Either way, you win.

MAZDA CX-9 Touring: FWD or AWD

Then there’s the Mazda CX-9 Touring. It builds upon the previous trim level with a bunch of state-of-the-art technology features, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. These technologies will enable you to access your compatible smartphone while you drive.

But where will you access it? Via the SUV’s beautiful 9-inch full color touchscreen display, of course. It’s features like these, as well as the two USB charging ports that are integrated into the 2nd-row’s center folding armrest, that’ll ensure that everybody stays connected even on long road trips.

MAZDA CX-9 Grand Touring: FWD or AWD
