Even though the second-generation Mazda CX-9 is still fresh, it’s already getting some tech-savvy updates.
For the 2018 model year, Mazda tacks on Smart City Brake Support -- Mazda’s name for autonomous braking -- as standard equipment.
That means even the entry-level CX-9 Sport will have some autonomous features. Also joining the standard safety features list is blind-spot monitoring and a rear cross-traffic alert system.
If the cloth seats in the Mazda CX-9 Sport don’t do it for ya, you can step up to leather coverings by jumping to the Touring trim. Touring also tacks on an auto-dimming rearview mirror, power liftgate keyless entry and a bigger media display. The top-of-the-line CX-9 Signature adds rosewood trim to the car’s cabin, LED interior lighting and even nicer leather.
