Sep 06, 2017 | Same topic: Newest & coolest car concepts
The 2018 Mazda CX-9 will get new techs, new features and, obviously new prices.

Since the last update for the 2016 version, the Mazda CX-9 has recently received a host of drastic technological changes for the 2018 model year.

Big changes for all trim levels include rear cross-traffic alert, blind spot monitoring and notably, an all-new automatic emergency braking system called Smart City Brake Sport.

Apart from those safety features, now drivers can feel more excited when driving thanks to Mazda’s standard G-Vectoring Control. By tweaking the steering inputs, throttle settings and the engine mapping, this technology will remarkably help lessen the engine torque while cornering. Moreover, the car’s weight also drifts towards the front wheels, so the direct feel from the rear wheels will be deeper.

Now, let’s talk about four 2018 Mazda CX-9 variants.

1. The 2018 Mazda CX-9 Sport

This base model also comes with a new Sport Package, but the package is limited to just a bit of tech such as lane departure warning, radar adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, heated front seats and a power driver’s seat, rain-sensing wipers in addition to automatic headlights with high-beam control. The package will set you back $1,290 (P66,026).

2. The 2018 Mazda CX-9 Touring

But more than that, the 2018 Touring will be given power passenger seats with lift and lumbar support as well as a tilting driver’s seat. For $1,890 (P96,736), the Touring’s Premium Package will get additional LED fog lamps, a Bose 12-speaker stereo, a new sunroof, satellite navigation system together with parking sensors.

3. The 2018 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring

More features will be added to Grand Touring, for example, a heated steering wheel, heated second-row seats and windshield wiper deicer beside the existing aluminum trim, adaptive lighting and a head-up display.

4. The 2018 Mazda CX-9 Signature

Despite being the top-spec trim, the Signature will not receive any upgrades. It seems that the Japanese automaker is very smug about the variant’s superior amenities like LED headlights, LED interior lighting, Auburn-colored Nappa leather and also, rosewood trim from Fujigen.
