Mazda introduced the updated crossovers CX-9 and CX-5November 22, 2019
Japanese crossovers received new options and an increase in price.
Mazda unveiled a restyled version of the 2020 CX-9 at its booth in Los Angeles. The model received an expanded range of functions and an increase in torque, which make it more competitive compared to other three-row crossovers. On the dashboard, instead of the traction control button, a help button appeared when driving on the road.
“When the diagonal wheels lose traction, the off-road traction assistant will no longer reduce engine torque and increase the braking force on the wheels without clutch. This transfers power to the wheels that are still on the ground to help the car regain traction and continue driving, ”the developers explain the role of this function.
This option will certainly help when driving on rough terrain or on a snowy winter day, which will come in the near future. The number of standard technologies used in the basic Sport has also increased. Each of the CX-9 received heated front seats, an electric driver’s seat, rain sensors, heated side mirrors, automatic high beams, and the i-Activsense safety system, including adaptive cruise control, lane keeping and much more.
Mazda also prepared a number of improvements for its CX-5 crossover, expanding the standard safety system by adding functions such as active cruise control with stop and start function, a modernized intelligent automatic braking system with pedestrian detection, a warning about leaving a lane, as well as automatic high beam headlights.
Options CX-5 Sport also receives automatic headlights, rain sensor, noise reduction, vibration and sharpness. A nice addition to the updated crossover is the new keychain and the 7-inch Mazda Connect infotainment system with a new cylinder deactivation display.
