Through an on-the-road comparison of the 2020 Mazda CX-9 and the 2021 Mazda CX-9, you can experience matched performances. Through all available trims in 2020 and 2021, the Mazda CX-9 pulls 227 horsepower from its Skyactiv®-G 2.5-liter Dynamic Pressure Turbo gas engine. In addition to having a front-wheel drive drivetrain, the Mazda CX-9 has a six-speed automatic transmission with manual shifting and a sport driving mode at all trim levels for 2020 and 2021.


With its gentle undulations across the side panels that beautifully reflect the sunlight, the Mazda CX-9 turns heads in the Troy area.
