2016 Mazda CX-9 Named One of the Best Trucks & Crossovers
When Mazda models earn awards, it’s a sign to Mazda designers and engineers that they are doing things right. But, it’s also a point of pride for those of us who provide the community with the latest Mazda vehicles, here at Mazda of Lodi. That’s why we are so thrilled to announce that the 2016 Mazda CX-9 was named one of the best trucks and crossovers, earning a spot on Car and Driver’s 10Best list.
This is the first year that Car and Driver has had a 10Best list for trucks and SUVs. When it comes to the CX-9, the midsize SUV earned a spot due to many factors that include its upscale design and innovative engineering.
Other notable characteristics that no doubt have played a role in the model’s popularity for the 2016 model year include a new turbocharged engine that puts out up to 310 lb-ft of torque. When combining this power with Mazda’s i-ACTIV AWD® system, the model provides a surefooted and confident driving experience.
Inside the vehicle, drivers and passengers can find Nappa leather seats on Signature trim level models. This flagship trim also features real aluminum and rosewood accents.
Elsewhere, the Mazda3 sedan/hatchback and the MX-5 Miata/MX-5 RF all earned awards from Car and Driver.
