We have been waiting for the latest release of the 2016 Mazda CX-9, and we finally have found out why we had to wait so long for the new Mazda CX-9. The CX-9 was brought to the Mazda Lineup in 2007 and this Mazda CX-9 marks the beginning of its second generation.
So with its first major update, what can we expect from this renovated SUV? Well, one thing that stands out about the new CX-9 is that it’s focus is NOT on power. You might think this is a bad thing, but Mazda has always had a method to their madness when it come to engineering their vehicles. Mazda wants the CX-9 to focus on the comfort of driving as well as the preciseness of the handling.
This focus as allowed for Mazda to create an SUV that is quiet, smooth, and precise in maneuvering. According to Consumer Reports, the new CX-9 drives with an “underlying firmness… that makes the 2016 Mazda CX-9 feel crisp and alert. And yet, the suspension effectively manages to absorb and filter out bumps and ruts – an impressive feat…”
It is clear that Mazda wants to bring excite to their vehicles in ways other than through horsepower and engine. However, that doesn’t mean their Skyactiv engine is lacking by any means!
What do you think? Would you give up a little extra power behind the wheel for a little more comfort on the roads? Tell us about it at Mazda of Lake Charles!
