In addition to this, the driver has access to Mazda-connected services that include remote start, vehicle status reports, and more through the app, all complimentary for three years.

In addition, when combined with the standard i-Active all-wheel drive, the SUV will constantly monitor and change with road conditions giving the driver more stability on the road.
The 2022 Kia Telluride is the main competitor in the mid-size SUV market, with features that resemble the Mazda CX-9. However, the starting price is 33,090, which is less than the Mazda CX-9, and as you will soon come to see, when you're paying less, you will receive less with this SUV.

These features include forward collision warning, blind-spot collision avoidance, rear cross-traffic assist, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist, and lane following assist.
