Mazdas CX-9 seven-seat SUV range is to be bolstered by the addition of two front-wheel-drive variants.

Available in Classic and Luxury grades, the new front-wheel-drive models will offer increased choice for customers who require the flexibility of seating for up to seven but without the need for all-wheel-drive. (copyright image)

The CX-9 Classic FWD will become the introductory model in the range and it is equipped with a list of features including 18-inch alloy wheels, auto headlamps, cruise control, three-zone climate control, power windows and mirrors plus a leather trimmed steering wheel and gear shift knob.

The CX-9 Luxury FWD is the next new addition to the range. Showcasing all the equipment of the Classic FWD, the Luxury model adds 20-inch alloy wheels, a power-sliding and tilt glass sunroof, heated power mirrors with 3-position memory and reverse tilt-down function, power adjustable leather seats with 3-position memory function and a premium Bose audio system with 10 speakers.

The Luxury model is also available with a Satellite Navigation option adding a fully integrated 7-inch touch-screen satellite navigation system and Bluetooth with audio streaming.

All Mazda CX-9 models include safety features such as six airbags (offering protection for all three rows), Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Emergency Brake Assist (EBA) and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), Roll Stability Control (RSC) and a 'reversing' camera.

The Mazda CX-9 continues to be powered by a 3.7 litre V6 engine matched to a 6-speed Activematic transmission. FWD models offer fuel economy of 11 litres per 100 km while the fuel efficiency of AWD models has improved to 11.2 litres per 100 km. Power and torque figures remain unchanged at 204 kW and 367 Nm respectively.
