RICHMOND HILL, ON, Dec. 7, 2021 /CNW/ - As Mazda's flagship three-row midsize crossover SUV, the CX-9 has been instrumental in helping introduce many of the premium values Mazda vehicles embody today. The current generation CX-9 debuted the Skyactiv-G 2.5 Turbo engine and the top-trim level Signature model for the brand, which have since spread through much of the lineup with great success. For 2022, the midsize crossover continues to deliver in this flagship role, providing confident performance that families value during their daily drives.
