Mazda's large CX-9 SUV was renewed in 2016, and has been an immediate success for the Japanese brand.
The seven seater is one of the largest cars in the category starting at $45,920 for the CX-9 Sport (FWD) to $69,303 for the CX-9 Azami (AWD). The CX-9 originally launched in Australia in late 2007 as Mazda's first ever seven seat SUV, but was eventually overtaken in popularity by the brand's younger and smaller SUVs, the CX-3 and CX-5.
The current seven seat CX-9 is powered by the company's only turbocharged engine, a 2.5-litre four-cylinder unit built especially for the large SUV. It's also backed by a torque converter-equipped eight-speed automatic transmission, and comes in front- and all-wheel drive models.
