Mazda 9 - Will we ever see a successor to the 929?

Asked by John

Why doesn't Mazda build a 9 model to sit above the 2, 3 and 6? Or is that role played by the CX-9 SUV?

Mazda is unlikely to introduce a sedan larger than the Mazda6, due to the declining sales of larger sedans globally in favour of SUVs.

However, with Mazda marching upmarket and its ties with Toyota strengthening, a joint-venture project with Toyota or even Lexus, using Mazda's new rear-drive platform and inline six-cylinder engine range, may make a model-sharing luxury flagship – a modern-day 929 in other words – a possibility.

But there are currently no plans that we know of pertaining to such a model, sadly.

We hope this helps.
