The all-new 2021 Mazda CX-9 is announced, and it will debut next year. As you already may know, Mazda CX-9 is a popular family crossover that comes with great design, and it provides room for seven passengers across the three rows of seats. However, according to some speculations, Mazda CX-9 will get a minor upgrade for the next year.
Upgrades will include exterior and interior cosmetic changes and more techs inside. However, under the hood, this SUV will continue to offer the same powertrain as before.
2021 Mazda CX-9 Exterior Changes
The forthcoming 2021 Mazda CX-9 will get minor exterior updates that will introduce more aggressive design. However, popular Kodo Soul design language remains, and CX-9 sports numerous modern cues. On top of that, the manufacturer will use a new slightly wider grille, thinner headlights, and extended hood.
However, on the back, the upcoming Mazda CX-9 will bring a new exhaust system and more visible horizontal taillights. 18-inch wheels are still standard options on the base model, while upper trim levels will be available with more stylish and bigger 20-inch wheels.

As you already may know, Mazda CX-9 is an SUV that comes with a spacious cabin that dominates in this segment. So, the new 2021 Mazda CX-9 will continue to offer the same configuration as before. This model comes with a 3-row of seats and there are enough rooms for seven passengers. Still, third-row is only recommended for kids and not the adults. Cargo area is also excellently rated. This SUV offers 38.3 cubic feet on the back of the second row, but there are respectable 71.2 cubic feet with the second and third rows folded down. In the same class models like Honda Pilot and Toyota, Highlander offers roomier cargo space.
Tech-wise, this model is updated. The center console looks fantastic thanks to the standard 7.0-inch touchscreen that dominates on the front. Also, there are many optional types of equipment to choose from, as the larger 8.0-inch display, leather upholstery, and additional driver-assistance features. The signature trim level is one of the expensive and luxurious. This trim will add 12-speaker Bose audio, a moonroof, Nappa leather seats that are ventilated, a 360-degree monitor and so on.
The 2021 Mazda CX-9 will remain to offer the same engine as its predecessor. So, in terms of mechanics, everything will be the same. Under the hood, the 2021 Mazda CX-9 is powered with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder. This turbocharged gasoline engine can deliver 277 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. A 6-speed automatic transmission is available, as the standard FWD system.
However, as before, you can choose an optional AWD configuration. The current CX-9 provides an excellent fuel economy. It delivers 22 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. So, we can expect some improvements in this section on the new model. Mazda CX-9 is a crossover that can tow up to 3,500 pounds.
2021 Mazda CX-9 Price and Release Date
The all-new 2021 Mazda CX-9 will be redesigned, and it will keep its price the same as before. The base model will start at $33,000, while the top-line Signature can reach a mark of $50,000. We can anticipate the new 2021 CX-9 sometime in 2020.
