2013 Mazda CX-9 World Premiere at Australian International Motor Show
- Incorporating elements of KODO design with Mazda's new family face
HIROSHIMA, Japan-Mazda Motor Corporation will hold the world premiere
of the refreshed Mazda CX-9 crossover SUV at the 2012 Australian
International Motor Show.
Held in Sydney, the 2012 Australian International Motor Show begins
October 18 and runs through to October 28, 2012. The 2013 CX-9 will be
launched in Australia later this year.
Mazda CX-9 is a crossover sport-utility SUV featuring a distinctive
sporty appearance, a high-quality cabin, the flexibility of
three-rows, and Mazda's exciting "Zoom-Zoom" driving
dynamics. The current CX-9 has sold over 210,000 units* in 74
countries, including North America and Australia, as Mazda's
range-topping SUV.
The 2013 Mazda CX-9 carries over the utility and dynamic driving
performance of the current model while adopting Mazda's "KODO -
Soul of Motion" design theme at the front and rear for even
sportier styling and stronger presence. Enhancements in craftsmanship
and interior design further the feeling of quality and refinement.
With regard to equipment, the infotainment system features the latest
audio, navigation and speech-recognition systems based on the Human
Machine Interface (HMI) which is intuitive to use. In addition,
advanced active-safety features, such as Forward Obstruction Warning
System, Lane Departure Warning System, and High Beam Control System,
help drivers recognize and avoid danger.
As with the current model, the 2013 CX-9 features the MZI 3.7-liter V6
engine and a six-speed automatic transmission for powerful and refined
driving pleasure.
The all-new Mazda6 (known as Atenza in Japan) will also make its
Australian premiere in Sydney. It is the second of Mazda's new
generation of products that adopt the full range of SKYACTIV
technologies and the KODO - Soul of Motion design theme. It is the
first model to be equipped with Mazda's unique brake energy
regeneration system, i-ELOOP.
The 2012 Australian International Motor Show will open to the press on
October 18, and to the public from October 19 to 28, 2012. Mazda will
hold its press conference on the morning of Thursday, October 18 from
9:12 to 9:22 local time.
