FOLLOWING ITS UNVEILING at the New York Motor Show in April, Mazda Australia has announced the release of the updated 2010 Mazda CX-9.
A new range-topping model, the Grand Touring, joins the Classic and Luxury models in the 2010 Mazda CX-9 line-up.
Powered by a refined version of the same 3.7 litre V6 DOHC petrol engine found in the 2009 model, the updated CX-9 offers 204kW and 367Nm of torque.
Thanks to the revised engine, fuel economy for the CX-9 has been improved, dropping to 12.2 l/100km, down from 13.0 litres.
Mazda's Active Torque Split all-wheel-drive system is paired with a six-speed Activematic automatic transmission.
A five-pointed lower air dam, chrome-rimmed grille, fancier headlamp housings and rhomboid-like foglight bezels update the styling of the new CX-9?s nose.
Other subtle updates include refreshed tail-lights, a new rear bumper and new 18-inch and 20-inch alloy wheels.
The wing mirror housings are larger and more aerodynamic, while an understated Dolphin Grey hue has been added to the CX-9?s colour palette.
Standard features across the CX-9 range include Anti-lock brakes, Traction Control, Dynamic Stability Control and Roll Stability Control. Front, side and curtain airbags are featured, along active front head restraints.
