A car is as good as its engine and interior comforts. The CX-9 is the most awaited car from the Mazda stable for its powerful engine. The all new boosted 2.5L quadra cylinder turbo petrol engine has a monster power output of 2000rpm at 420lb-ft torque propelling the six speed automatic transmission to hit high speeds with ease. There is no drag experienced while accelerating and the car is highly fuel efficient.
Speaking of drive conditions, the car fared exceptionally well when tested on wet roads. Bumps in the road were absorbed by the efficient shock absorbers and little or no overthrow was felt within the cabin.
Although the car is not small, parking and maneuvering it in tight spots does not seem like an impossible task thanks to the parking sensors and rear view cameras. The traction is improved with the All-wheel drive owing to the inclusion of larger tires of 20 inches.
The Mazda offers a three years warranty for unlimited kilometers post which service is required once a year or on completion of 10,000 kilometers, whichever comes first.
In the safety department, all variants come with driver air bags, side and rear air bags, 4 wheel disc and drum brakes, brake assist system, child safety locks, blind spot monitoring, traction control and lane departure warning.
The car is a steal deal for families looking at buying SUV for the space it offers, safety features and performance, all of which is available in the base Sport variant.
