Bermaz Motor, the sole distributor of Mazda vehicles in Malaysia, has announced that the flagship 7-seater CX-9 SUV is now available for booking at all authorised Mazda showrooms. The 2020 Mazda CX-9 sees a few updates that focuses on elevating the premium Mazda ownership experience.
As per the brand’s move to feature a more premium design, the 2020 Mazda CX-9 receives updated Mazda badging and fonts design as well as a new gray metallic finish to its 20″ aluminum alloy wheels.
For the interior, the 2020 CX-9 gets black leather seats for all three rows with a new silver stitching finish for some classy feel. Other standard features include an updated 9″ Mazda Connect infotainment screen, Auto Hold function as well as i-Stop, seatbelt reminders for 2nd and 3rd row passengers, and an additional two USB charging ports at the third-row for added convenience.
The 2020 Mazda CX-9 continues to be powered by the Skyactiv-G 2.5T turbocharged engine that produces 228 hp @ 5,000 rpm and 420 Nm of torque from 2,000 rpm. The engine features a world’s first Dynamic Pressure turbo with a 4-3-1 exhaust manifold to deliver instant torque seamlessly. This is combined with an exhaust gas recirculation cooling system (EGT) to reduce combustion temperature to aid fuel economy and efficiency. It is paired with a quick-shifting, six-speed Skyactiv-Drive automatic transmission. 2-wheel drive and all-wheel drive variants of the CX-9 are available.
With the i-Activ all-wheel drive, the 2020 CX-9 is the first Mazda vehicle offered with the all-new Off-road Traction Assist feature. This replacs the traction control button and can potentially help the driver when driving on uneven terrain. When the diagonal wheels lose traction, off-road traction assist will stop reducing the engine torque and increase the brake force on the wheels without traction. This transfers power to the wheels which are still on the ground to help allow the vehicle to regain traction and continue the drive. The Mazda CX-9 also comes standard with G-Vectoring Control Plus which improves steering response to enable the driver and all of its occupants to have a smooth and premium experience.
In terms of advanced safety technologies, the 2020 Mazda CX-9 comes equipped with Mazda’s flagship i-ACTIVSENSE advanced safety technologies including, but not limited to the following: Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA), Smart City Brake Support, Lane Departure Warning with Lane-Keep Assist. Smart City Brake Support is now updated with pedestrian detection support.
The 2020 Mazda CX-9 for Malaysia continues to be imported from Japan as CBU and selling price starts from RM 319,610.40.
