We all want a luxury SUV but the fact of the matter is, not all of us can afford one. The 2017 Mazda CX-9 however, happens to offer the very thing you want but without the expensive price tag. Of course, nothing is really perfect and some things have to be sacrificed to get what you want most. Here's what you should know about the 2017 Mazda CX-9.

2017 Mazda CX-9: The Luxurious Exterior

Here's the deal, the 2017 Mazda CX-9 is built on the same Kodo "Soul of Motion" platform as its CX-3 and CX-5 siblings. This gives the 2017 Mazda CX-9 a gorgeous look starting with its open-mouthed chrome grille along with LED grille accent lighting that makes it standout during the night. In addition, it also has expensive fog lights and LED headlights that basically give the front section a seductive look. According to Forbes, the 2017 Mazda CX-9 also has a strong shoulder that extends from the front to the rear section. Simply put, the 2017 Mazda CX-9 has an elegant look that satisfies any pair of eyes that look at it.

2017 Mazda CX-9: The Elegant Interior

The interior of the 2017 Mazda CX-9 is just as attractive as the exterior. The 2017 Mazda CX-9 Signature in particular has all sorts of luxurious inputs from genuine rosewood that envelope the dashboard and other finishing touches that simply make the 2017 Mazda CX-9 scream luxury. As for the control panels, Mazda has kept things rather simple, which is probably a good move because it simply makes the luxuriousness stand out more.
