Mazda CX-9 2021 review: GT Snapshot

New for 2021 is the GT-based GT SP.

The seven-seat GT sits above the entry-level Sport and below the flagship Azami in the Mazda CX-9 range, with it priced from $62,990 plus on-road costs with front-wheel drive, or $66,990 with all-wheel drive.

Standard equipment includes dusk-sensing LED headlights, rain-sensing wipers, 20-inch alloy wheels, a hands-free power-operated tailgate, a sunroof, keyless entry, push-button start, paddle-shifters, a 9.0-inch central display, satellite navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, digital radio, a 12-speaker Bose sound system, a head-up display, a wireless smartphone charger, three-zone climate control, power-adjustable front seats with heating, heated outboard rear seats and 'Natural Stone' or black leather upholstery.

New for 2021 is the GT-based GT SP, which bundles in black 20-inch alloy wheels and side-mirror caps as well as burgundy leather upholstery and red stitching for $500 more.

ANCAP awarded the CX-9 its maximum five-star safety rating in 2016. Advanced driver-assist systems in the GT extend to front and rear autonomous emergency braking, lane-keep assist, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control with stop and go functionality, traffic sign recognition, high-beam assist, driver attention alert, a reversing camera and front and rear parking sensors.

All grades are powered by a 2.5-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine, which produces 170kW of power and 420Nm of torque. With a six-speed torque-converter automatic transmission as standard, Mazda claims the CX-9 consumes 91 RON petrol at 8.4L/100km (FWD) or 9.0L/100km (AWD) during a combination of urban and highway driving.
