(First Drive) 2020 Mazda CX-9 AWD Signature – Full-Size Luxurious SUV


After a few months of car companies press fleet stoppage due to COVID-19, I am very happy to announce that car companies have now begun to reopen to give auto journalists the chance to test drive their new vehicles.Car companies such as Mazda Canada have very thoughtful safety protocols to ensure their staff and journalists are as safe as possible and as contactless as possible.

I am On the MOVE again with this 2020 Mazda CX-9 exploring Ontario for my “ONTARIO TRAVEL SERIES” segment. It’s a full-size SUV with top of the line “Signature” trim level in its iconic “Soul Red Crystal Metallic”.My 1st expression of the CX-9? It looks sporty, luxurious and it looks good in every angle. I am usually not a fan of red colour on any vehicle but Mazda does a great job with this “Soul Red Crystal Metallic” body paint.

This CX-9 has all the goodies that you can ask for. It has a sunroof, heated seats, heated steering wheel, cool ventilated seats (perfect for hot summers we are experiencing right now). Beige leather seats with wooden accent on all parts of side panels, dashboards, power trunk and all other types of goodies. New for this model year is the option of having a centre console in the 2nd row of the SUV that includes climate control, heated seats, cup holders and much more. For the entry level, the 2nd row seats 3 passengers in a one row of seat and seats 2 more people in the 3rd row. As a standard equipment for this “Signature” trim level, it seats 6 passengers vs 7 passengers but at a first glance, I rather sit 6 passengers and sacrifice the 7th seat for more comfy space and goodies with the centre console in the 2nd row. It’s so worth it! Anyhow, so far so good with the CX-9 and I enjoy the drive, the ride, the technology and its features.
