Mazda is showing off its all-new, 2016 Mazda CX-9 three-row crossover at the 2015 L.A. Auto Show.

Sporting what the Japanese automaker calls “the latest, grandest expression of KODO – Soul of Motion design yet,” the new CX-9 is actually shorter than its predecessor by 1.2 inches but has gotten a 2.2-inch longer wheelbase, adding more leg room for passengers and easier entry and exit to and from the vehicle. At the show, Mazda introduced the CX-9 in a new signature color called Machine Gray, which is designed to make the crossover look as though it was carved from a single ingot of steel.
