New Mazda CX-9 already at the official dealer

As Napoleon Hill said, “the starting point of any achievement is desire. … Weak desires give poor results, just as a small amount of fire gives little heat. “And if you follow the idea of ​​this successful author, is it worthwhile when choosing a car to dwell on the available options while most of them are lost in the shadow of the luxurious CX-9?

This year, the premium crossover from the world-renowned concern Mazda went through a number of updates, thanks to which it has become even more attractive both outside and inside. For Russians, it is available in four trim levels with a 2.5-liter turbocharged engine, four-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission.

It picks up speed in the range of 100 km / h in 8.6 seconds, reaches a maximum speed in the range of 210 km / h, maintaining ease of operation and demonstrating incredible smoothness. Even in the most basic version of this car meets the requirements of the most sophisticated experts.

Modest but worthy
The basic version of the updated CX-9 (Active) remains relatively affordable in price due to somewhat more modest interior design and a minimum number of auxiliary options. It is distinguished by fabric upholstery (leather is used only for braided steering and gear knob) and the absence of:

electric and “memory” in the driver’s seat;
seat heating and steering wheel;
automatic addition of side mirrors and dimming rearview mirror;
keyless access;
all-round cameras;
parking sensors, electric drive on the tailgate, traffic sign recognition system and some other options.
At the same time, there are such popular functions as:

automatic door locking at the beginning of the movement;
electric side mirrors;
Cruise control;
light and rain monitoring;
ABS;
system of effective distribution of braking forces, lateral stability, dynamic stabilization, etc.
The cost of such a complete set of Mazda CX-9 from an authorized dealer is about 2.8 million rubles, excluding surcharges for color.

Maximum convenience
The most luxurious and expensive version of the crossover – Executive – is currently sold at a price of 3.357 million rubles. For this amount, the buyer receives the most luxurious interior decoration salon (using the softest skin Nappa) and a huge functionality, including:

monitoring blind spots;
warning about approaching from the side of another car;
control driver fatigue;
pedestrian recognition and safe braking in urban environments;
signal about leaving the occupied band.
These options provide a safer and more comfortable driving, due to which trips in it deliver even more pleasure – both to the driver and passengers.

Profitable terms
Since the cost of the CX-9 cannot be called affordable for the average Russian, Mazda’s management regularly organizes promotions and special offers, within which the price of the crossover decreases markedly, and the loan for its purchase becomes more profitable.

So, in March of this year, official dealer centers implemented a number of credit programs with reduced interest rates and a fixed amount of monthly payments. The list of implemented programs is constantly updated: the action of some stops, others are postponed to the next month. Therefore, it is necessary to find out the information relevant at the time of purchase from the official distributors of the concern.
