The 2021 Mazda CX-9 is not much different from its predecessor. However, this impression arises only if you do not consider the list of onboard equipment.

This version of the Japanese competitor Volkswagen Teramont and Skoda Kodiaq in top-end versions stands out due to revised configurations, which were supplemented with additional equipment.

Now the 7-seater Mazda CX-9 is offered in Russia for a minimum of 3.108 million rubles.

Options and prices

The 2021 Mazda CX-9 still retains the new body that served as a kind of prototype for all modern Japanese cars.

The situation is not improved by the revision of the available trim levels, which led to a slight increase in prices.

Probably, in the near future there will be a large-scale update of the Mazda CX-9, which will also affect the technical characteristics of the Japanese model. In the meantime, the car is available in Russia in four versions.

Moreover, the suspension elements of the crossover are characterized by increased endurance. A number of complaints are caused by the wiring that ensures the operation of the all-wheel drive.

But its restoration costs about three thousand rubles. More serious costs await owners of Mazda CX-9 after 250 thousand kilometers, when it becomes necessary to repair the turbine and automatic transmission.
