Mazda CX-9 Sport 2019 review: snapshot


The Sport is the entry point into the Mazda CX-9 range with a list price of $44,990 for the front-wheel drive and $48,990 for the all-wheel drive, it's the most affordable grade in the line-up.

Standard features include a seven-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android auto sat nav, six-speaker stereo, Bluetooth connectivity, push-button ignition, three-zone climate control, LED headlights, rear parking sensors, cloth seats and 18-inch alloy wheels.

The CX-9 scored the maximum five-star ANCAP rating when it was tested in 2016. The 2018 update added even more advanced safety tech and all grades now come with an impressive amount of advanced safety equipment including AEB (forward and rear), blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, lane keeping assistance, traffic sign recognition and adaptive cruise control with stop and go function.

All Mazda CX-9s come with a 2.5-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine which makes 170kW and 420Nm. With the six-speed automatic transmission Mazda says the CX-9 should consume 91 RON at 8.4L/100km in the front-wheel drive and 8.8L/100km in the all-wheel drive during combined driving conditions.
