    2007 Mazda CX-9 Crossover SUV to Make Global Debut at 2006 New York International Auto Show

    IRVINE, CA - April 4,2006: Mazda North American Operations (MNAO) will unveil its all-new 2007 Mazda CX-9 seven-passenger crossover sport-utility vehicle (SUV) 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 an interior of sophisticated elegance with class-leading space and unmatched versatility. Best of all, CX-9 -- like all Mazdas -- has the Soul of a Sportscar.

    Like the Mazda CX-7 presented earlier this year, the CX-9 is a clean break from the traditional boxy SUVs crowding the US market, deftly blending sporty driving spirit with seven-passenger SUV practicality.

    "The North American market continues to play a leading role in Mazda Motor Corporation's global future and financial health," emphasizes Jim O'Sullivan, president and CEO, MNAO. "The all-new CX-7 and CX-9 were engineered specifically for North America to help us fulfill ambitious goals. The CX-9 has traits only a Mazda SUV could have: strong performance, agile handling, precise steering and superior quality and craftsmanship."

    Mazda CX-9 targets young couples and modern families with a focus on family interests, yet haven't lost their desire for high-intensity leisure activities, learning experiences and social interaction. It is also ideal for couples with grown children who pursue an active lifestyle.

    Every CX-9 is powered by a new 3.5-liter V6 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 (DSC), Roll Stability Control (RSC) and Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS). An optionally available power-operated lift gate provides one-touch opening and closing access to the cargo hold.

    yeah... could be ok, but need more pics to have a better idea. front looks too car like in this one, like a Mazda 6 that's been lifted instead of a proper crossover/SUV. but maybe that's just this angle or something.

    What platform is it on? Is it a larger version of the CX-7 or something totally different?

    Very nice, less agressive then the cx-7...... Seems like a more of an upscale vehicle then the cx-7. Not sure about the big bar in the lower fascia but overall.... very very nice.

    Yet another great Mazda design. I prefer the more aggressive design of the CX-7, but I am sure the CX-9 will sell well.

    Its not bad...looks to very well built, but this is a case where the Mazda front facia just doesn't fit very well. The grill looks too small.

    I like it. It looks much better than the Highlander and Pilot.

    Why does Ford allow Mazda to have such a vehicle?
