Stylish, swift and filled with practicality, the redesigned 2010 Mazda CX-9 is a crossover utility vehicle that combines the appearance of a modern SUV with the versatility and safety of the mini-van. The CX-9 is not an off-road vehicle, at least not as a primary function. It handles like a car, offers smooth ride quality and impressive fuel economy, delivering 16/22 mpg city/highway as estimated by the EPA. One of its most notable features is the fact that the standard 17.2 cubic feet of luggage capacity can be increased up to over 100 cubic feet by folding down the second and third rows of seating. It's available as either a front wheel-driven or all wheel-driven vehicle, able to tow up to 2000 pounds with either drive configuration (3500 lbs. when properly equipped). Turning radius is 18.7 feet.
There's loads of room for all passengers inside of the CX-9 Mazda 2010. It's able to transport up to seven passengers quite comfortably, even if each of them is 6 foot tall. Even the third row of seating was designed with grown people in mind. Everything is done nicely on the inside of the cabin. It's cozy, convenient, of high quality and available with as many features for technology, safety and performance as you could wish for. The CX-9 competes with worthy class members including the Ford Flex, Toyota Venza and the Dodge Journey. Base retail pricing for the six available trims ranges from $28,805 up to $34,215.
Every Mazda is part race car and the 3.7L V6 stock engine of the CX9 Mazda 2010 delivers the performance that is expected. It generates 273 horses at 6250 RPM and 270 lb-ft of twist at 4250 with the assistance of an impressive 6-speed auto transmission that's made in Japan. The 24-valve V6 powerplant itself was designed and is manufactured in Ohio. The CX-9 is a highly responsive vehicle, reacting quickly to the driver's commands. It's particularly well-suited for travel on 2-lane roads with loads of twists and turns.
