All New Mazda CX9 – New Definition for 3 Row Cross overs

Monday, December 5, 2016

Kuwait Automotive Imports Co along with Mazda launched its long awaited the second-generation CX-9 crossover. It delivers a comprehensive interior and exterior overhaul, blessing the CX-9 with a powerful, efficient Skyactiv powertrain, and instilling even more of the sporting character that makes Mazda’s so darn charming.

Mr Yousef Al Shaya, CEO, KAICO elaborated on the strong historic bond between KAICO and Mazda and Mazda’s core values. He expressed his gratitude to all Mazda customers who supported KAICO in the last 47 years. He also emphasized that Mazda, with its new CX-9, pushed the boundaries of tradition to achieve the unachieved. This new CX-9 flagship is a perfect example of Mazda's growing design prowess.

Mr Ashish Tandon, GM, Kaico added that with the new CX-9, engineers sought to instill driving dynamics befitting of a Mazda—agile handling, tight steering and a responsive, controllable powertrain. To do this, they found smart solutions to keep CX-9's structure light, yet rigid, with SKYACTIV Technology. They developed a new turbocharged SKYACTIV-G 2.5T engine that delivers instant throttle response, class-leading torque and an estimated around 20-percent increase in fuel- efficiency.
As is so often the case, it's not so much the style but the choice of materials that stands out. Nappa leather paired with real Japanese rosewood and aluminum accents to craft a cabin that feels far more expensive than what you might expect from Mazda.



Premium Styling

The all new CX-9 sets itself apart from other 3 row cross overs. CX-9 carries shorter overhangs on both ends, lengthening its hood and adding a sense of strength through proportions.

Housing large wheels— 18 and 20-inch wheels—CX-9's tapered fenders are pushed to the edge of its body, giving the vehicle a wide, trapezoidal stance.

The smooth lines start up front with a bold, five-point grille with double bars. They're flanked on either side by standard low- and high-beam LED headlights. The bold grille introduces a strong lower body and sleek upper body that elevates KODO, introducing sleek curves that provide a premium appeal in a segment awash with convention. Covered in the eerie glow of Machine Gray paint, it looks expensive enough to wear a luxury-brand badge. Material quality is excellent throughout. Many of the plastics are so finely grained and soft to the touch that they appear to be bovine based. The overall effect is one of purity, simplicity and Japanese beauty.



The Tech Savvy Cockpit

New CX9 is equipped with all the latest gizmos, blind-spot monitoring, a power liftgate, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, an 8.0-inch touchscreen, 12-speaker Bose stereo, rain-sensing wipers, satellite radio, sunroof, a head-up display, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control with forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking, automatic high-beams, and aluminum interior trim.



More from Four - Turbocharged SKYACTIV-G 2.5T Engine

Another major difference between the CX-9 and its competition is under the hood. While most in this class offer V-6 power, the CX-9 comes only with a turbocharged four-cylinder. The engine displaces 2.5 liters and makes 250 horsepower on premium fuel and 227 horsepower on regular. In the real world, these drivers spend most of their time at about 2000 rpm. So, to provide punch where owners want it, the CX-9’s engine makes 310 lb-ft of torque at 2000 rpm regardless of octane.

To combat turbo lag, the engine has what Mazda calls the Dynamic Pressure Turbo System that combines the advantages of variable-vane and twin-scroll turbocharger technologies in one small part. There are three butterfly valves positioned in the exhaust manifold at the entrance to the turbocharger. Below 1620 rpm, these valves are closed, forcing exhaust gases through restricted paths, thereby raising the pulsation energy of the exhaust impacting the turbine wheel (like a thumb over a water hose). At 1620 rpm, when the exhaust volume is large enough, the valves open, and the turbo operates normally. Therefore the Dynamic Pressure Turbo System gives better & sustained at torque even at lower RPM.



i-ACTIV AWD Predicts Road Conditions for Maximum Stability

i-ACTIV AWD upped the ante, implementing a host of other sensors that were already integrated into vehicles for other functions and channeling the information they presented such as ambient temperature, steering wheel angle, longitudinal grip, brake fluid pressure and even windshield wiper movement. In all, i-ACTIV AWD brings 22 different sensors together to paint a picture of road conditions and direct torque to the rear wheel as necessary, predicting what the driver may face on a slick road in the winter or in heavy rain.

i-ACTIV AWD measures road conditions 200 times every second and can adjust power distribution to account for wheel slip even in dry conditions. It can even route power to limit understeer during spirited driving, sending as much as 50 percent of CX-9's power to the rear wheels through Mazda's proven six-speed SKYACTIV-DRIVE automatic transmission.



Beat the Fuel Price Increase

Word of the day is Fuel efficiency and Mazda has kept its promise to customers. The downsized engine and lighter weight help boost Fuel efficiency in city/highway, even better from its predecessor the 3.7L V6 Skyactiv engine. New turbocharged SKYACTIV-G 2.5T engine delivers 20-percent increase in fuel- efficiency.
Its not just the car, KAICO has introduced All New CX9 2017 MY at very special price and is now on display in Kuwait Automotive Import Co’s Mazda showroom. Visit to test drive and acknowledge the zoom-zoom experience of All New Mazda CX9.
