Mazda CX-9 Named Best Midsize Crossover SUV by Digital Trends

The 2016 Mazda CX-9 was recognized as the Best Midsize Crossover SUV by the editors of Digital Trends in a list that highlights the best crossovers in the market that blend car capabilities with utility.

CX-9’s KODO—Soul of Motion exterior design cues set it apart from the competition, and its appealing interior complements what’s on the outside. Just as important as the design language, CX-9’s engineers were dedicated to delivering an all-new powertrain for the 2016 model year that resulted in a turbocharged version of the 2.5-liter SKYACTIV-G engine. Digital Trends deems the modular platform and available all-wheel drive system as “stellar” and one worthy of “primetime” attention.

With an MSRP[1] from $31,520, the 2016 CX-9 is proof that a midsize crossover SUV can be good looking and fun-to-drive without compromising luxury amenities and premium features. The Signature trim level is the CX-9’s grandest expression of this with Japanese rosewood trim, Nappa leather and LED accent lighting.
