Looking for a family-friendly Mazda SUV that combines luxury features with sharp handling and gutsy performance? Then it’s the 2020 Mazda CX-9. With an additional row of seats, CX-9 is a perfect family SUV. But that doesn’t mean, it compromises on other aspects. Swooping styling, lightweight structure, advanced technology and Mazda’s very own Kodo design altogether make the new CX-9 a luxury car. Want to learn more? Here is a brief overview of the 2020 Mazda CX-9 and it’s major styling, performance and technology highlights.


The Mazda CX-9 2020 has a tastefully designed cabin. From the inside, the CX-9’s cabin wows with upscale features, premium materials and detailed styling. Soft-touch materials are prominent inside the new Mazda in addition to premium leather seats, side trimmings with genuine graining, brushed aluminum highlights, and wood accents featuring rosewood. The dashboard looks new and handsome, and it features heavily contoured areas. The central display is either a 7.0- or 8.0-inch touchscreen sprouting from the top and giving the entire area a nice and upscale look. Chairs in the first row are standard captains chairs with power adjustable features. Top tiers like the Grand Touring models also come with heated captain’s chairs, ventilated options, and a power liftgate. The top-of-the-line trim Signature has a number of advanced features to share. This CX-9 comes with a center console between the standard second-row captain’s chairs, boasts Deep Chestnut nappa leather and gains an additional upholstery color—Parchment —also made from nappa leather. Externally, the 7-passenger Mazda SUV is elegant, features a chrome grille, standard LED lights, and a fresh flowing design that complements the structure of the vehicle.


Standard turbocharged four-cylinder engine helps to power up Mazda’s 7-passenger SUV. Thanks to the lightweight aerodynamics, the CX-9 runs smoothly and swiftly like a sports car. A turbocharged four-cylinder engine is the CX-9’s sole powertrain, which certainly contributes towards better fuel-economy advantage. The CX-9 does manage impressively in acceleration testing, where it culminates from zero to 60 mph in mere 7.1 seconds. Those in search of a family hauler with good driving capacity will certainly love the 2020 CX-9. Without a doubt, it is clearly a driving enthusiast’s family hauler. SkyActive technology with standard all-wheel-drive supports the SUV really well during bad road and weather conditions. The suspension is firm, but it’s still flexible enough to help the vehicle handle well over rough stretches of road. Thanks to it’s engine, firm suspension, and accurate steering, the CX-9 imparts vigor that’s often missing from other similar family SUVs.


All CX-9s feature Mazda’s user-friendly infotainment systems with a 7.0- or an 8.0-inch touchscreen unit. The entire system can be easily controlled via the touchscreen or a rotary knob and even the redundant buttons on the center console located right next to the shifter. The new CX-9 has voice-responding technology, which means you can control the infotainment through voice commands. User-friendly software makes everything easy to navigate and select one or multiple commands to start with. The graphics are crisp and looks really sharp especially on the larger screen. Other notable highlights in the 2020 model are the Bluetooth phone and streaming audio, HD radio, and onboard internet radio apps for Pandora, Stitcher, and Aha. The newly upgraded i-Activsense in Mazda’s newest driver-assist suite, which includes many automated emergency features such as braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, and lane-keeping assist. Other notable highlights include heated front seats with power adjustments for the driver, new rain-sensing windshield wipers, automatic headlamps, and heated exterior mirrors. Higher trims, including Touring, Gran Touring and Signature, now have a larger 9.0-inch infotainment display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, a new key-fob design, and power-adjustable second-row seats.

Probably my first 5 star review for a car dealership ever. Thanks to our salesman Hasan Majied for making the purchase process super fast and efficient (after we had spent a bit of time landing on an agreeable price). We were in and out in record time. Can’t recommend them more and am happy to join the Mazda family. Hopefully our new CX5 treats us well for the long haul!

After not having a car payment for 3 years I reluctantly drove to Gillman Mazda where I was met by Mr Ricky Mehra who really understand what I was looking for. He asked lots of questions to get me in the right vehicle. After 2 days bonding with my new CX-9 I decided to sign the deal. The staff at Gillman are great I'd definitely recommend.

Walked in just wanting to look a used truck i saw online. A nice sales guy who goes by Wolf took me on a test drive and didn't pressure me at all to buy. He made the experience pleasant. He just wanted me to drive it to see if it was what i wanted. Great customer experience. Good job Mazda!
