PHILIPSBURG – Caribbean Auto has introduced the all new 2018 Mazda CX-9, a stylish large-sized, three-row crossover SUV that caters to families with seating for seven passengers. The vehicles are now available in various colours at its showroom in Cole Bay.
The destination possibilities are endless, thanks to CX-9’s all-weather capability from its optional predictive i-ACTIV all-wheel drive and class-leading fuel-efficiency. The CX-9 provides a premium driving and passenger experience, courtesy of an all new award-winning SKYACTIV-G 2.5T turbo engine that delivers excellent performance in everyday driving scenarios and an interior cabin that is pleasing to the sight and touch.
After being named as a finalist for the 2017 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year, the Mazda CX-9 further earned commendations as a finalist for both 2017 World Car of the Year and 2017 World Car Design of the Year, helping Mazda earn top spots on both World Car lists for the second year in a row.
When the Mazda CX-9 made its world debut back in 2006, it was an epiphany: a midsize three-row crossover SUV that defied the conventional design cues and cumbersome driving experience expected of vehicles in its class.
The CX-9 quickly captivated the automotive industry, winning numerous accolades, including the 2008 North American Truck of the Year as voted on by media from across the U.S. and Canada.
The latest, grandest expression of ‘KODO – Soul of Motion’ design resides in the CX-9, representing the flagship of Mazda’s current-generation lineup. It has a proud front fascia that cascades into crisp lines that flow to the rear greets drivers and passengers, ready to take on the world.
The Mazda CX-9 interior is beyond breathtaking, with available black or beige Nappa leather seats and aluminum trim exclusive to the Grand Touring, top-tier trim level. The focus for CX-9 continues to be authenticity, an experience rather than simply another commodity conveyance.
When developing the second-generation CX-9, engineers sought to instill driving dynamics befitting of a Mazda – agile handling, tight steering and a responsive, controllable powertrain.
To do this, they found smart solutions to keep the CX-9’s structure light, yet rigid, with SKYACTIV Technology. Engineers developed a new turbocharged SKYACTIV-G 2.5T engine that delivers instant throttle response, class-leading torque and best-in-class EPA combined fuel economy. All models carried by Caribbean Auto will have i-ACTIV AWD.
