Mazda North American Operations debuted the 2007 Mazda CX-9 seven -passenger crossover sport-utility vehicle (SUV) at the New York International Auto Show. Arriving in Mazda dealerships in early 2007 , the CX-9 is designed and engineered specifically for North America. The Mazda CX-9 provides unique Mazda design and energetic performance as well as an up-market interior with class-leading space and unmatched versatility.
Like the Mazda CX-7 presented earlier this year, the CX-9 is a clean break from the traditional boxy SUVs crowding the US market. While styling echoes the CX-7, CX-9 is not a lengthened three-row CX-7, and CX-7 is not a shorter-wheelbase CX-9. Engineered with Mazda's "Soul of a Sportscar" signature , CX-9 deftly blends sporty driving spirit with seven-passenger SUV practicality. Standing out from existing crossover SUVs - vehicles that deliver SUV practicality with a passenger car driving experience - the Mazda CX-9 is the insightful solution not only to the modern family's complex need but also to the enthusiast driver's desires . A nd of course Zoom-Zoom is standard.
"The North American market continues to play a leading role in Mazda Motor Corporation's global future and financial health," emphasizes Jim O'Sullivan, president and CEO, MNAO. "The all-new CX-7 and CX-9 were engineered specifically for North America to help us fulfill ambitious goals. The CX-9 represents everything a Mazda SUV should be, offering ample power, striking appearance, fun-to-drive vitality , precision build quality and unexpected versatility. While other vehicles in this category focus only on what's behind the drivers seat for the family, we have engineered a unique solution that is equally as exciting for the driver. "
Mazda C X-9 targets y oung couples and modern families . These outwardly-focused families haven't lost their desire for high-intensity leisure activities, learning experiences and social interaction. It is also ideal for couples with grown children who pursue an active lifestyle. Mazda CX-9 is specifically designed to make these complex pursuits as easy and as pleasurable as possible.
