2017 Mazda CX-9 Production Starts in Japan

2016 Mazda CX-9 - 2017 Mazda CX-9 ProductionAt the 2015 L.A. Auto show we were introduced to the 2017 Mazda CX-9; a seven-seat crossover SUV that is set to go on sale this spring. The 2017 CX-9 went into production earlier this week in Japan and we couldn’t be more excited.

The Mazda CX-9 is a three-row vehicle that comfortably seats seven. The spacious interior will have brown Nappa leather seats and wood trim. The 2017 Mazda CX-9 will feature an all-new turbocharged 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 250-horsepower and 310 lb.-ft. of torque. The “Kodo-Soul of Motion” design philosophy from Mazda will also be evident on the 2017 Mazda CX-9. This design philosophy is featured on the new Mazda2, Mazda3, Mazda6, CX-5 and CX-3 models.

We have high hopes for the CX-9 and so does Mazda. Mazda expects about 80 percent of global sales of the CX-9 to come from the United States. Here at Steet Ponte Mazda, we are anxiously awaiting the spring and the arrival of the 2017 Mazda CX-9! Stay tuned for more information on the 2017 CX-9!

Mazda to Debut Mazda KOERU Crossover at Frankfurt Motor Show

The 2015 Frankfurt International Motor Show happens in late September for 10 days from the 17th to the 27th, but Mazda has already announced its plans to debut one of its new concepts—the Mazda KOERU crossover SUV.

Mazda KOERU CrossoverThe word KOERU, which, according to the press release, translates to “exceed” or “go beyond,” is representative of Mazda’s venture into the increasingly popular market for crossovers. The KOERU is also the latest in Mazda’s series of KODO – Soul of Motion designs, which aims to pack sleek, refined cars with the power and vitality of a wild animal. The SUV will also utilize the latest SKYACTIV technologies to provide improved environmental performance, such as increased fuel efficiency, without affecting the quality of driving experience associated with the Mazda name.

The company’s full KODO – Soul of Motion line will be displayed at the Frankfurt Motor Show, including but certainly not limited to the Mazda KOERU. The crossover SUV will be one of 14 vehicles displayed in the lineup.

Dynamic Mazda CX-3 Crossover Poised to Change the Market

2015 Mazda6 - Mazda CX-3 Coming Soon!Small crossovers are a popular vehicle and there are tons in production, but they all seem to be the same thing. The dynamic Mazda CX-3 crossover is different, and something we all needed to see.

There are so many bland crossovers, weird crossovers (looking at you, Nissan Juke), or ones that fail to be innovative (**cough cough** Jeep Renegade **cough**). But the Mazda CX-3 has a sleek design with a fresh profile. It truly stands apart from the rest.

The car was shown off at the LA Auto Show in Mazda’s trademark Soul Red color. It’s perfect for four passengers and has adequate cargo space.

The design really brings it to the next level, as well. Similar to a CX-5 or a Mazda6 in quality, however it has a simple design that really highlights its elegant design. This vehicle contains everything it needs to be just what we’re all looking for in a crossover.

Here at Steet Ponte Mazda, we know that our brand is a cut above the rest, and we look forward to helping you discover that, too.
