In terms of design the CX-9 shows how the models at Mazda will evolve with the introduction of a  3D effect on the grille and the way it runs backwards into the bonnet line and into the shoulder line. The new generation replaces the 10 year model, which was the last of the old Ford-based models.

The new CX-9 will be powered by a new 2.5-litre 250hp SkyActiv-G petrol engine, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Mazda says the new engine is the most powerful unit in its line-up. The CX-9 will also be available with the option of all-wheel drive, and will receive Mazda's i-Activesense suite of safety technologies.
 
Sales of the CX-9 will start in the US next spring. Despite the growing appetite for SUVs and crossovers, there are currently no plans to sell the new Mazda CX-9 in Europe.
