2017 Mazda CX-9 Lacks Power


2017 Mazda CX-9 SUV has been recently redesigned, and it still looks fresh and amazing, it is a classy car with great equipment, but one of the main disadvantages of this vehicle is power, or to be more precise, lack of it. The SUVs are becoming more popular, and the CX-9 is a terrific choice especially for those families who live in the suburbs. This three-row SUV is a real family hauler, it combines luxury styling, pleasurable driving, and latest technologies.

2017 Mazda CX-9 Design

The new Mazda CX-9 has a unique front end, which makes it hard to confuse with other vehicles. It is equipped with LED headlights, and the customers can opt for a top-shelf model only in white, silver, gray or black color. What separates the range-topping Signature trim level from the rest is the lavish interior with high-quality materials. The CX-9 has an attractive exterior design with sharp curves and sleek angles, but the Signature comes with minimal exterior improvements only. Mazda is fun to drive, and the new model is even lighter compared to its predecessor.


The problem with this vehicle is power, as we have already mentioned. Under the hood of the 2017 Mazda CX-9, you can find the Skyactiv-G 2.5-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged unit that produces 250 horsepower. For a three-row SUV that is supposed to transport people and stuff as well, this is a mediocre number, and some competitors that are equipped with a V6 unit such as GMC Acadia, Honda Pilot or Ford Explorer offer much more.

Nevertheless, Mazda CX-9 is still a perfect pick, and this three-row crossover offers a lot.
