2017 Mazda CX-9: A Better Version With The Same Price
The 2017 Mazda CX-9 is scheduled to hit the showrooms sometime this month and it appears that we will be getting a better version without having to shell out more money than the last time. Despite the new standard features that consumers will certainly look forward to, Mazda has somehow found a way to bring us the 2017 Mazda CX-9 without raising its price.
2017 Mazda CX-9: Base Trim Sport
According to CNET, the 2017 Mazda CX-9 is arriving with the same starting price of $31,520 for the base trim Sport. This trim is equipped with standard features such as LED taillights and headlights along with a backup camera and a seven-inch color display for its infotainment system. The drivetrain will still be in standard front wheel drive (FWD) and optional all-wheel drive (AWD) as last year. Opting for the AWD configuration, however, will bump up the price to $33,320.
2017 Mazda CX-9: Touring Trim
It goes without saying that the 2017 Mazda CX-9's middle trim also has the same price as it did last year at $35,970. This time, however, there are new features coming along with it. According to Motor Trend, the Smart City Brake Support, which was an optional feature in the same trim, is now standard in the 2017 Mazda CX-9 Touring, which comes very handy in avoiding collisions. In addition, the 2017 Mazda CX-9 Touring has an upgraded eight-inch touchscreen for its infotainment along with power tailgate, power front seats, and keyless entry. The same as the base trim, opting for the AWD setting will raise the price up to $37,770.
2017 Mazda CX-9: Grand Touring
Apparently, the sweetness stops here as the 2017 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring comes with a little price bump of $300 from last year. The 2017 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring is now tagged with prices of $40,470 and $42,270 for the FWD and AWD configurations respectively. This, however, is definitely worth paying for as the 2017 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring comes with adaptive cruise control, adaptive headlights, autonomous emergency braking, lane-keep assist, lane-departure warning and a head-up display.
2017 Mazda CX-9: Signature Trim
The 2017 Mazda CX-9 Signature, which is the top trim for the model has also received an increase in price as the previous trim. The 2017 Mazda CX-9 Signature is now priced at $44,315. Unlike the previous trims, however, the 2017 Mazda CX-9 Signature comes with a standard AWD drivetrain setting and a very cool interior with Nappa leather along with LED accent lighting and a rosewood trim.
2017 Mazda CX-9: The Same Reliable Engine
The 2017 Mazda CX-9 will be equipped with the same reliable engine it had last year. The powertrain is a 2.5-liter inline-4 that is capable of putting out 250 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. The 2017 Mazda CX-9 with an FWD setting has a fuel economy of 22/28/24 miles per gallon in the city, on the highway and combined respectively.
It is great that automaker found a way to bring us the 2017 Mazda CX-9 without increasing the price, except in the case of the Grand Touring and Signature trims that is. Regardless of the little increase at the top trims, the new standard features in the lower trims make the 2017 Mazda CX-9 quite the better version than the previous model.
