2022 Mazda CX-9 for Sale in Springfield, MA
Trims and Performance
The ever-elegant 2022 Mazda CX-9 is a midsized three-row crossover that’s made in six trims: Sport, Touring, Touring Plus, Carbon Edition, Grand Touring, and Signature. The Sport can seat up to seven passengers with its second-row bench seat, but the Carbon Edition and Signature can only seat six since they’re configured with second-row captain’s chairs (which are offered for the trio of Touring trims).
The powertrain is the same throughout the lineup: a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine making 227 hp and 310 lb.-ft. of torque (250 hp and 320 lb.-ft. of torque with premium fuel) mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. As mentioned, AWD is standard. According to the EPA’s official estimates, all trims achieve the same fuel economy: 20 mpg around town and 26 mpg on the highway. The maximum towing capacity is 3,500 pounds.
The Sport is set up for everyone’s comfort with heated front seats, tri-zone automatic climate control, a driver’s seat with power adjustments, and a second-row bench seat that splits 60/40 ways and slides forward to provide easy access to the third row. It’s also equipped with automatic on/off LED headlights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, heated side mirrors with integrated turn-signal indicators, keyless entry, keyless ignition, two 12-volt power outlets, and two USB ports. If you plan on housing a lot of equipment in the rear, you’ll find it all easy to organize thanks to the included storage bins for the cargo area.
The Touring gains Mazda’s advanced keyless entry system (which doesn’t require you to take the key fob out of your pocket), plus illuminated vanity mirrors, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with a HomeLink universal garage door opener, a power liftgate, two second-row USB ports, a power-adjustable front passenger’s seat, and first- and second-row leather seats. The debuting Touring Plus adds LED fog lights, aluminum roof rails, a frameless rearview mirror, a moonroof, ventilated front seats with driver’s position memory settings, a wireless phone charger, second-row sunshades, and two third-row USB ports. Many of those features are available for the basic Touring through the optional Touring Premium Package.
The Carbon Edition shows off a unique look with its Polymetal Gray exterior paint color, chrome exterior trim, and red leather upholstery. It also receives an adaptive front lighting system, a windshield wiper de-icer, power-folding side mirrors, a hands-free liftgate, a 7-inch LCD gauge cluster, steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, LED interior lights, aluminum and black interior trim, a heated steering wheel, and heated second-row captain’s chairs.
The Grand Touring has many of the same features as the Carbon Edition (minus the Polymetal Gray paint, red leather seats, and black interior trim), but it’s sweetened with a head-up display with traffic sign recognition. The Signature is adorned with LED grille accent lighting, larger exhaust pipes, rosewood interior trim, trim-specific stitching for the leather-enrobed steering wheel, and quilted front- and second-row Nappa leather seats with accent piping.
Advanced Safety Technology
Every 2022 Mazda CX-9 gets at least a few active safety technologies. The Sport and Touring both receive forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high beams. The Touring Plus adds front and rear parking sensors, and the Carbon Edition gets all of the above plus driver attention alert and reverse automatic braking. The Grand Touring and Signature are also issued a surround-view camera system.
Infotainment and Connectivity
The 2022 Mazda CX-9 has the full slate of multimedia technologies to keep the driver and passengers connected. The infotainment system in the Sport and Touring has a 10.25-inch touchscreen, voice recognition, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, and a six-speaker sound system. While the Sport isn’t eligible for the upgrade, the Touring qualifies for the optional 12-speaker surround-sound Bose audio system with SiriusXM satellite radio (via the Touring Premium Package). Both of those features come standard on the remaining trims.
