New Mazda CX-9 in Merrillville, IN

2023 Mazda CX-9 at Art Hill Mazda in Merrillville

The Mazda CX-9 is the standard setter among mainstream SUVs, delivering a truly premium driving experience without the premium price tag. A spacious and upscale cabin, plentiful practicality, and Mazda's penchant for elegant design make it one of the most compelling nameplates in the midsize three-row segment. And while its Mazda's largest model, the CX-9 is impressively enjoyable to drive, thanks to its smooth ride, skillful handling, and potent powerplant. The CX-9 is an excellent choice for shoppers who want something engaging and refined but need extra space and seatbelts to accommodate their larger family. And it's available here in Merrillville at Art Hill Mazda.


The 2023 Mazda CX-9 is impressive in how it feels smaller than it is from behind the wheel, thanks to Mazda's G-Vectoring Control Plus engineering. A well-tuned suspension system helps the CX-9 maintain its composure through curves and corners while neatly absorbing road imperfections for a settled and refined ride. Under the hood, the 2023 CX-9 draws motivation from Mazda's Skyactiv®-G 2.5 Turbo four-cylinder engine that makes 250 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque with 93-octane premium fuel (227 hp/310 lb-ft with 87-octane). And for surefooted handling and inclement-weather control, all CX-9 models come standard with Mazda's  i-Activ AWD® system.


The 2023 CX-9 demonstrates Mazda's passion for refinement through an upscale cabin with sleek, modern design details, quality materials, and an intuitive layout. It provides comfortable accommodations for up to seven passengers, with ample headroom and legroom and nicely cushioned and supportive seats. Or, if you don't need the final seatbelt, you can select a six-seat configuration with second-row captain's chairs and either a center walk-through or a center console with cupholders, armrests, and additional storage. Cargo space measures 14.4 cubic feet behind the third row and 38.2 behind the second. When you need maximum capacity for your errands or adventures, you can fold all rear seats to access 71.2 cubic feet.

Technology and Safety

The 2023 CX-9 equips an attractive 10.25-inch Mazda Connect display, which features intuitive operation via an innovative Multifunction Commander Control. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto seamlessly integrate your smartphone with the central screen, providing convenient access to features like hands-free communications, maps and directions, streaming and stored media, and more. And with Mazda Connected Services and the MyMazda App, you can start/stop the engine, lock/unlock the doors, check your vehicle's status, and more via your smartphone.
