Mazda has announced the updates to the 2021 Mazda CX-9 crossover, which it says has received some styling updates, as well as a new 10.25–inch infotainment system with the latest-generation Mazda Connect.
Although Mazda says that there are some styling updates, we can’t really see them in the photos that it released of the 2021 CX-9. But we do know that a new Carbon Edition has been introduced. The CX-9 Carbon Edition is based on the CX-9 Touring with Touring Premium Package, but it adds Polymetal Gray exterior paint, gloss black door mirrors, a gloss black front grille and 20-inch black metallic aluminum alloy wheels.
Inside the Carbon Edition adds red leather seats and black metallic interior trimming on the dash, door panels and handle bezels. The steering wheel will have paddle shifters. Smart City Brake Support Reverse and Driver Attention Alert safety systems are also part of the package.
In addition to the updated infotainment system, wireless phone charging has also been added.
The 2021 Mazda CX-9 is powered by a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 250 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque on premium (93 octane) gasoline or 227 hp and 310 lb-ft. of torque on regular (87 octane) gasoline.
The pricing for the 2021 CX-9 starts at $35,060. It arrives later this month.
