I am very delighted to test drive this brand new 2021 Mazda CX-9 Kuro Edition 黒 in December of 2020. That’s right, 2021 is finally here and thank goodness the new year is coming.
The “Kuro Edition 黒” is a brand new trim level being added to the vast array of different trim levels being offered in the CX-9 family to accommodate different customers needs and wants. Kuro in Japanese means “Blacc 黒“. In this Kuro Edition, the focus is on the visual components on both inside and outside of the SUV. The engine output and its specs and performance remains the same as other CX-9 trim levels.
There are a bunch of black components visible in the outside and inside of the CX-9. Some notable visual cues include the large black glossy front grill. The black rear view mirrors and the 20 inch rims. Inside, you can see the Garnet bright red leather interior with the optional 2nd row Captain chairs instead of the 3 seat flatbed that are standards in other CX-9 trim levels or other brands’ SUV.
MoVernie FUN FACT: Did you know……this CX-9 Kuro Edition only comes with Polymetal Grey Metallic or Jack Black Mica exterior colours? This makes this Kuro Edition even more exclusive. Our tester was in the polymetal grey metallic and it complements nicely with the black visual components. You could spot out the contrast of the black components along with the grey body paint. Personally, I think each the grey and black are beautiful, it just comes down to individual preference. All black everything looks nice as well.
This is the first drive of the CX-9 Kuro Edition. Stay tuned later for an in-depth driving experience and feedback.
