Will the 2022 Mazda CX-9 Still Lead its Segment?


The Mazda CX-9 has been a prime example of how a three-row SUV can thrive for excellence. It is a series of crossover SUVs that has always been referred for its super-effective driving dynamics and an unexpectedly swanky interior made available at such a low ownership cost. 

So, when you go shopping for the crossovers in the year 2022, it is perfectly normal for you to expect the same this year in the Mazda inventory. So, let us check if Mazda decides to give you the same pleasant surprise this year. But to see from a different angle, we are also curious to know, if the 2022 Mazda CX-9 will continue to lead its segment, even now. So, here we are at the plush gallery of the Mazda dealership near Henderson, where the staff members are eager to share their insights in order to help us quench our curious minds on this age-old crossover SUV model from Mazda. 

Special Changes for the 2022 Model Year Edition

We have already heard about the rumor that for the year 2022 Mazda has planned to give its CX-9 model series of three row crossover a complete redesign. When we visited the above-mentioned dealership, we got to know above that, how the lineup of the 2022 Mazda CX-9 has changed even on the performance angle, where the all-wheel-drive (AWD) setup is now set as the standard. Likewise, much as expected, we were well-prepared to know the slight increase in the base price which Mazda duly justifies by adding plenty of active safety features as standard, making this model series stand ahead of many newcomers in its segment, therefore leading the same in many aspects.  

As per the announcement, the 2022 Mazda CX-9 model series will make an entry to the dealership floors post its mid-cycle refreshment, which will most likely allure the buyers and the window shoppers with an updated exterior as well as a more refined interior, while few interesting changes will also take place in the lists of standard and optional feature packages. 

Effects of a Perfect Set of Driving Dynamics

However, this new generation of the Mazda CX-9 will also have something more alluring to offer the skilled motorists, since it will come based on Mazda’s worldwide appreciated SkyActiv Platform. So, even the base “Sport” trim will make a good enough choice for those buyers who are naturally aesthetic in their nature. Even for a daily use purpose, this Mazda crossover will make an excellent choice, especially because of its unique sporty vibe that is derived from a perfect set of driving dynamics like the paddle shifters and an excellent fuel efficient mileage. 

Setting up the powertrain with a 2.5 L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that can chase a high fuel economy figure, the 2022 Mazda CX-9 models are not going to compromise on their peppy performance. This said engine will thus deliver a respectable 250 hp or 227 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque, depending upon the drivetrain you choose, while pairing with an AWD setup will also enhance the ride quality, with a high performance engine working under its hood.

All this will sure retain the class-leading space for the 2022 Mazda CX-9 model series, assured the sales team of the Henderson area Mazda dealership.
