Release Date Info for the 2019 Mazda CX-9
Finally making its appearance is the 2019 Mazda CX-9. This is a model which has received somewhat minor changes for its latest incarnation. The car that was prevised a few years ago has continued on the offer a great and stable vehicle. But the changes that the model had were only few and it did not update the car in a larger sense that everybody expected. But it seems that they are planning to do it a bit more justice. This means that the upcoming car is going to add more changes than the one from a few years ago.
The vehicle was first rumored and spotted as a prototype model doing rounds. Next came its revealing as a concept model at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Finally, we are getting closer and closer to the actual release date which will happen next year. The 2019 model of the CX-9 is going to be out a bit earlier than you would expect it to be. In fact the third or final quarter of the 2018 are when you can expect to see the car come.
What is the Price of the 2019 Mazda CX-9?
Based on the latest news about the 2019 Mazda CX-9, we are not getting a price change. There are no exact numbers still offered but you can rest assured that they are going to be similar. Mazda has only recently confirmed the existence and the possible release date for their newly updated car. But they have failed to do so with the price. On the other hand, the same kind of trim levels for the car are set to make a comeback.
Thus the price of the 2019 Mazda CX-9 is similar to the current one where the base Sport model starts at $31,520. The Touring trim costs $35,970, while the Grand Trouping is $40,170. The most expensive one was the Signature trim and it was priced $44,015. Expect only a slight price boost but nothing significant which might make you change your mind in buying this model.
Latest Rumors for the 2019 Mazda CX-9
Some rumors that were highly talked about the 2019 Mazda CX-9 included it changing the design. We do not only mean updating the design but changing their all too familiar Codo design that has become a staple for the Mazda based models. This will probably not happen though and it remains as rumors only. This car will receive some new additions and enhancements but it is not going to mean that the design is changing. There are a lot of things that this car is improving, but dropping the Codo design is not one of them. Instead this car will welcome the use of Mazda’s G-Vectoring Control system which will help reduce engine torque imperceptibly. Either way both things are good news for this brand.
Exterior Changes made for the 2019 Mazda CX-9
Why fix something that is not broken, making the shape of the exterior of the 2019 Mazda CX-9 remains the same. The design of the newest 2019 model of the CX-9 is going to follow the previous model almost completely. The changes are minimal and they could easily go unnoticed for the untrained eye. In this case, you will have a hard time to decide what innovations are added or made. But the vehicle is more than great and will be one of the most fashionable cars on the streets.
The characteristics that the 2019 Mazda CX-9 will be known for include sharply angled front grille and bumper. It will combine with a long hood and some steeply raked windshields. The integrated rear spoiler adds a new dose of aggressiveness for this vehicle. But there are some specific elements which are going to be seen only on the upper trims. For instance, the Grand Touring model has some chrome elements on the side which makes it distinguishable. This is also seen on the Signature models and they also add 20-inch wheels. The standard set includes the 18-inch ones. Concluding, the new vehicle will not have a hard time to fit in and will be a bellowed model in the segment for many reasons.
Some New Color Variants
The newest 2019 Mazda CX-9 is updating the color pallet. The current roster of exterior colors was pretty decent and it still is. This is why the entirety of it is making a comeback and you will still be able to choose from Snowflake White Pearl, Sonic Silver, Jet Black, Deep Crystal Blue, Titanium Flash, and Machine Gray and also the iconic Soul Red. Making a debut this time is only one additional variant, but a very good one. Buyers are now going to be privileged with the addition of Soul Red Crystal to the mix.
What about the Dimensions of the 2019 Mazda CX-9?
As far as it has been reported, the 2019 Mazda CX-9 is not going to change its size. The vehicle looks good this way and the updates which have been added are aesthetical at best. This is why we do not get any size changes. So if you liked the previous model in terms of size you will most probably like this one. The full length of the car measures 199.4 inches and the wheelbase is 115.3 inches. The height of the car is 67.6 inches and the width is 77.5 inches. The current model has a curb weight of 4336 lb and we are sure that the newest one will be similar to that. As far as interiors go, there is 135 cu ft of passenger volume and a cargo space of 14 cu ft.
What Has the Interior of the 2019 Mazda CX-9 Changed?
The interior of the 2019 Mazda CX-9 did not really need any updates. The vehicle has a stellar interior which is very good looking and functional. The materials are very nice and the technology is more than appropriate. But changes have been made and we got ourselves an even better car for it. So for instance, the Sport moles added heated front seats with power adjustments for the driver, which are now optionally available. The Touring models are offered with power-adjustable front-passenger seat with lumbar support and a tilt function for the power seats.
Gran Touring models crank up the luxury to a higher level and heated steering wheel and added heated rear seats. The revisions which were made for the second row of seats have resulted in a better and higher comfort while at the same time enabling better access to the third row of seats. Unformulated, there are still no captain’s seats available for the second row which the fans were expecting to see.
Engine Setup and Specs
The 2019 Mazda CX-9 will not go thought any engine changes. The idea of bringing a turbocharged engine for the vehicle was introduced a while ago. Their idea was to enable maximum power and low speeds while also having very favorable fuel economy. The vehicle has a very springy low speed acceleration performance and very good throttle response because of it. Therefore the 250-hp turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder, that we have all been already gotten used to for the CX-9 is still being used. This time it will make the same output of 250 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. Also transferred is the transmission system. The car will continue using the six-speed automatic transmission. The performance will not suffer and the vehicle will still be a very capable car.
Top Speed and 0-60 mph
With the same powertrain for the 2019 Mazda CX-9, the same output is going to be available. The current acceleration speed needed to reach 0-60 mph is 7.2 seconds and the top speed of the car amounts to 133 mph. This has always been pretty favorable for the car and equally pretty standard. Do not expect them to tamper with it this time and the changes for the acceleration are not necessary. The vehicle has a really peppy acceleration ability at low speeds which gives it quite a big advantage.
Fuel Economy and mpg Ratings for the 2019 Mazda CX-9
With the engine not being changed for the 2019 Mazda CX-9, so will the fuel economy stay favorable. In order to gain an upper hand and an advantage to the competition a turbocharged engine has been added. This brought the vehicle much better fuel consumption and allowed it to really push the paste for the competition. All in all, the EPA stats of 21 mpg city and 27 mpg highway are going to remain the same. But this is still going to keep the car as competitive as it was. In fact, it greatly catches up with the competition this way.
