Mazda CX-9 2018

The 2018 Mazda CX-9 range of configurations is currently priced from $37,499. Our most recent review of the 2018 Mazda CX-9 resulted in a score of 8 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Editor - Adventure Marcus Craft had this to say at the time: Obviously, a few hours of fun events and challenges does not provide an exhaustive examination of a vehicle's capabilities – not by anyone's measure. But it does offer some valuable insight into how vehicles perform in a variety of extreme situations and it doesn't get much more tricky for any AWD than five centimetres of fresh snow, soggy mud-ice puddles and treacherous patches of no-traction ice.

The 2018 Mazda CX-9 carries a braked towing capacity of up to 2000 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

Mazda CX-9 2018 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Mazda CX-9 2018 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Does the Holden Acadia 2019 have enough space for three baby seats?

    The Acadia doesn’t boast a diesel engine, so economy could be an issue for your daughter; also it’s only a little longer than the Kia Sorento, so space could be another problem. A better choice would be the Mazda CX-9.

  • Toyota Kluger: What SUV would have less cabin noise?

    So many things affect road noise, which makes it difficult to fix. There’s the road surface itself, the tyres, and the noise insulation in the vehicle. The Honda CR-V might well be quieter, but could still be noisy on the roads you drive on. If the road noise is the thing that is making you switch vehicles, then it might be worth talking to a tyre dealer about a tyre that might be quieter than the ones on your Kluger. If you want to go down that road, you could try a Mazda CX-5 or CX-7, a Kia Sorento or Sportage, Toyota RAV4.

  • Which is the best value seven-seat SUV for under $40k?

    You should be able to get an example of the current crop of large seven-seat SUVs for under $40k, and we recommend the Kia Sorento, Mazda CX-9, Toyota Kluger and Hyundai Santa Fe, in that order. 

    You'll also be able to get a new mid-size SUV for well under that price, with Mitsubishi offering the base Outlander with seven seats for $29,990 drive away at the moment. 

    You can also get the Honda  CR-V VTi-L for just under $40k and the Nissan X-Trail. Our pick would be the Honda, but bear in mind it lacks a lot of active safety equipment fitted standard to the other brands.

  • is the Volvo XC90 worth the extra money over A Mazda CX-9?

    The Volvo XC90 is a terrific luxury SUV, one that offers plenty of high-end technology and luxury appointments, plus with enough room for seven adults if need be. It's an inescapable fact that the Volvo is on the expensive side - if you consider a petrol engine version with sporty styling - the T6 R-Design would be the go-to option - and at about $105,000 before on-road costs and options, you're likely to see a lot of value in a like-for-like comparison against the Mazda CX-9 Azami AWD (which is about $65,000 before on-road costs, and there are hardly any options to choose). 

    The Volvo doesn't excite the senses as much as a Mazda CX-9, and if that's important to you, then we'd suggest the Japanese seven-seat SUV is the better option. But it is hard to argue against the Volvo's driveway cred, and if you can afford it without stretching the budget, then it's definitely worth a test drive.
