2007 Mazda CX-9 Crossover SUV to Make Global Debut at 2006 New York International Auto Show
IRVINE, CA – Mazda North American Operations will unveil its all-new 2007 Mazda CX-9 seven-passenger crossover sport/utility vehicle at next week's New York International Auto Show. Arriving in Mazda dealerships in early 2007, the CX-9 is designed and engineered specifically for North America. The Mazda CX-9's design sets new standards for style, while incorporating class-leading interior space and versatility. Like the Mazda CX-7 presented earlier this year, the CX-9 is a clean break from traditional boxy SUVs, blending sporty driving with seven-passenger SUV practicality.Every CX-9 is powered by a new 3.5L V-6 engine driven through a standard six-speed automatic transmission. Final drive is through either front- or all-wheel drive. Brakes are large ventilated discs on all four wheels.More detail on specific model content will be available closer to launch, but standard features on all trims include air conditioning, power windows, power door locks with remote keyless entry, cruise control, and six airbags. To help avoid accidents, all CX-9s are fitted as standard with dynamic stability control, roll stability control, and anti-lock brakes. An optionally available power-operated lift gate provides one-touch opening and closing access to the cargo hold.
