Mazda CX-9

Mazda specialists have developed the new Mazda CX-9 and you can see it in the photo gallery. The carmaker will introduced to the public for the first time at the Australian International Motor Show on October 18th, sometime at the middle of October. Unfortunately it is a bit too early to see the modifications applied to the rear end or the interior of the car, but the front looks simply incredible. It includes up front LED running lights in the headlamp clusters and bolder lines surrounding the fog lamp housings. According to the carmaker, the new Mazda CX-9 will receive the same engine the current model has, so the 3.7-liter V6 engine that will send the power to the wheels through a 6-speed automatic transmission which will be mated to both front- and rear-wheel drive.

The Mazda CX-9 is a crossover sport-utility SUV with a sporty appearance. The designers used a high-quality cabin and it provides the flexibility of three-rows and also driving dynamics. So far, the current CX-9 managed to sell more than 210.000 units in 74 countries like the US and Australia. In terms of safety, the carmaker offered some extra active-safety features like Forward Obstruction Warning System, Lane Departure Warning System and last, but not least High Beam Control System. This last one helps the driver avoid danger.

Mazda will hold its own press conference in the morning of the 18th of October. That will be the date more information will be available. Unfortunately these are all in details we have so far, but it is still good, at least we do not have to wait too long for more. The carmaker will also present for the first time the all-new Mazda6 in Sydney at the Auto Show in Australia.
