Roominess, Comfort and Seat Variability

The dynamic exterior of the Mazda CX9 is not achieved by sacrificing SUV comfort and seat flexibility. With one of the segment's longest wheelbases (2,875 mm), the Mazda CX9 offers space for a maximum of six people. The cockpit is designed to support this by being easy to use and practical. The steering wheel is both tilt and telescopically adjustable. The leather driver's seat is power adjustable for slide and height, has electric lumbar support adjustment and a seat position memory system that can store up to three different driving positions and two additional positions using the two card keys - and the front passenger seat is power adjustable as well. The shift lever of the six-speed automatic transmission is positioned high at the front of the floor console where it can be easily operated in either automatic or manual modes, and the steering wheel has audio controls and cruise control (depending on market). This is combined with large and comfortable back seats that can be folded individually to create a large load space. There is even a handy strap at the back of both third row seats that lets you fold them into the floor and lets you pull it back up again. And of course practical storage compartments can be found everywhere in the cabin. There is a large front floor console that comes with an auxiliary jack (AUX) for hooking up and playing an MP3 player using the car's premium audio system; and a 12-volt power outlet that can be used to recharge the batteries of your notebook, mobile phone and other electrical equipment.
