Come Drive the All-New Mazda CX-9!

Posted by: Mark Bilek

Hot on the heels of last weekend's MX-5 drive, Mazda is offering a consumer driving experience of its all-new CX-9 crossover SUV. On Sept. 16, 17 and 18, attendees will have the opportunity to experience a dynamic vehicle drive tailored to highlight the full range capabilities of the CX-9.

The Mazda CX-9 was completely redesigned for 2016. According to Mazda, it offers a premium experience, fun-to-drive handling dynamics and bold design. The CX-9 boasts seating for seven and a full suite of safety and convenience features. It's powered by a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that makes up to 250 horsepower. Front-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission are standard. All-wheel-drive is optional.

All drivers at the CX-9 Experience must have a valid U.S. driver's license, be 18 years of age or older, sign a waiver form and pass a breathalyzer test. Participants must wear closed-toe shoes. Parents will need to consent to minors riding in the CX-9.
