The 2020 Mazda CX-9 Sport trim has been upgraded with standard premium features like a lumbar-supporting power driver’s seat, heated front seats and side mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, and automatic High Beam Control.


Passenger seats are now power adjustable on the 2020 Mazda CX-9 Touring edition, and Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® capabilities are supported. A brand-new 9-inch touch screen is also offered on the Touring, as is Advanced Keyless Entry and Start.

Touring Premium

The CX-9 Touring Premium is an available package that upgrades the already-luxurious Touring trim with features like a power moonroof, a Bose® sound system, third-row USB ports, and three months of SiriusXM.

Grand Touring

The biggest update to the Grand Touring trim of the CX-9 is the new hands-free rear lift gate, which is perfect for parents who never seem to have enough arms to carry everything. Second-row heated captain’s chairs are also newly available.


On the Signature trim, the aforementioned second-row captain’s chairs are standard and include an upgraded center console. Two leather tones are available, and other premium interior updates give the CX-9 a luxury feel.

Fans of the CX-9 will be pleased to learn that Mazda has also made significant updates to the midsize SUV’s powertrain for the 2020 model year.

Engine Upgrades

All CX-9 models come equipped with a 2.5T SKYACTIV®-G turbocharged engine. For 2020, serious improvements have been made with regard to engine performance. When using 93 octane gas, the 2020 Mazda CX-9 now delivers 10 lb-ft more torque than the previous model’s 310 lb-ft, and reaches up to 250 horsepower.

All-Wheel Drive

For 2020, Mazda made its revolutionary i-ACTIV predictive all-wheel drive functionality available on every trim. i-ACTIV AWD® comes standard on the 2020 CX-9’s Signature trim.

Traction Control

Brand new for 2020, the Mazda CX-9 now offers a traction assist feature built to handle off-road driving conditions. This feature is available on CX-9 models with i-ACTIV AWD® and replaces the existing traction control feature on previous editions. With off-road traction assistance, the CX-9 becomes an adventure-ready crossover that continuously monitors wheel traction to increase torque and brake force.

G-Vectoring Control Plus

The 2020 Mazda CX-9 offers G-Vectoring Control Plus steering technology as a standard feature. Drivers and passengers alike will love how smooth the ride is thanks to the upgraded steering responsiveness.
