Cargo & Towing

There's 17.2 cubic feet of cargo room behind the third-row seat. Folding the third row flat increases the cargo area to 48.4 cubic feet, and folding the second row flat makes for a total of 100.7 cubic feet. All of the CX-9's numbers lag behind the Outlook's, especially the 48.4 cubic feet behind the second row (the Outlook has 68.9 cubic feet).

Standard towing capacity is 2,000 pounds, but the CX-9 is rated to tow up to 3,500 pounds with the optional Towing Package. Available on Touring and Grand Touring trims, the Towing Package includes a heavy-duty transmission cooler and fan, a wiring harness and a receiver.
