2016 Mazda CX-9 Price Jumps by $1,500


The price tag on the new 2016 Mazda CX-9 has jumped by about $1,500.

Base pricing for the 2016 model starts at $32,420, up from the 2015 model’s base price of $30,865. One of the upgrades that accounts for the price bump is the new turbocharged engine.

Every new CX-9 model is powered by a 2.5-liter turbo engine making 250 horsepower (on 93-octane gas) and 310 lb-oft of torque on 87- or 93-octane gas. Using 87 octane brings the hp down to 227. Fuel economy has been pegged 22 mpg in the city, 28 on the highway and 25 mpg combined for front-wheel drive models.

Going for the base Sport trim nets the CX-9 standard LED headlights and taillights, fabric seats, 18-inch wheels, rear backup camera and Mazda CONNECTM infotainment system with a seven-inch display. For an extra $950, buyers can get the sport package which adds a power driver’s seat, heated front seats and heated door mirrors.

Opting for all-wheel drive on any model will set you back an additional $1,800.

    Standard LED headlights and taillights
    18-inch wheels
    rear backup camera
    Mazda CONNECTM infotainment system with 7″ display
    and a turbocharged engine

    -that’s well equipped for a base model 🙂

    Agreed! Mazda has typically been very competitive with pricing, offering a tremendous amount of value in each of their segments. I’d likely opt for an AWD Touring with Premium Package for $40,415 which still comes in at least $2,000 below comparably equipped Explorers, Pathfinders, etc. while offering best in class fuel efficiency and likely, based on the rest of their vehicles, best in class driving dynamics not to mention, in my opinion, being the best looking vehicle in its class as well although the Explorer and Durango aren’t far behind.

  • As an owner of 2 Mazdas, I can say that I am not going to consider buying one again. They are rust buckets even in places that are not constantly exposed to weather elements and winter salt. Both of my cars are well maintained, kept in indoor / underground garage and rust proofed every year, still rust like no other car I have seen and while the gimmicks + looks on Mazdas are great, they will depreciate in value faster than other “car investments”.

    i admit i am unfamiliar with an annual vehicle rust-proofing.
    What does that entail?

  • DiamondDuq

    First of all, no modern vehicles require non-factory rust-proofing, let alone annual rust-proofing. Secondly, no new vehicle should ever be purchased as “car investments” unless it’s some limited run/special edition of a highly sought after vehicle that’s planned on being kept for several decades with limited use. I’ve had my current Mazda 6 for over 7 years, driven nearly every day with over 130,000 miles in the Northeast US with zero rust and, knock on wood, nothing but regular maintenance and wear and tear to this point. I’ve consistently averaged better than EPA estimates for fuel efficiency from the day I purchased the vehicle new through current use and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mazda to anyone nor would I hesitate to purchase another one myself, which I plan on doing with the new CX-9 when available.
