Mazda is selling its redesigned 2016 Mazda CX-9 mid-size SUV with standard LED headlights and taillights — a feature that's typically offered as a premium option on higher trim levels.

The 2016 CX-9 will become the first non-luxury mid-size SUV to offer LEDs as standard equipment. Mazda is offering its three-row CX-9 in Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring grades.

The new CX-9's low-beam headlights produce 900 lumens per unit, which is about twice the output of a comparable halogen headlight. The new headlights shine about 35% brighter than a standard halogen unit and can throw light 10% farther than a comparable xenon HID unit.

Engineers were able to package both low- and high-beam lights in a single housing for a clean look. Additionally, LED headlights run cooler than either halogen or xenon headlights, offering what is expected to be greater long-term durability, according to Mazda.

The CX-9 Grand Touring and Signature models will also feature all-LED interior lighting, including overhead and accent lights that complement CX-9's horizontally swept door and dashboard panels.

The 2016 Mazda CX-9 retails for $32,420 and has arrived at dealer lots.
