There’s a new look Mazda CX-9 coming to Australia but if you’re in the market for one then you have a few more weeks to wait just to see one.
We’re not going to see the new Mazda CX-9 in the flesh (or the metal) until the 2012 Australian International Motor Show begins in Sydney on October 18 and they’re not going to go on sale in Australia till even later in the year.
While it seems that the new Mazda CX-9 will be basically the same vehicle as the previous model with the sane MZI 3.7-litre V6 engine, there will some design changes at the front and rear of the vehicle as well as some interior changes.
What Mazda calls the Human Machine Interface has been upgraded with the latest audio, navigation and speech-recognition systems and the new CX-9 will also have “new and advanced active safety features” including Forward Obstruction Warning, Lane Departure Warning and High Beam Control.
The current Mazda CX-9 model has sold over 210,000 units in 74 countries across the world so it will be interesting to see how many Mazda can sell of the new model.
