Since the brand no longer offers the base Sport trim, the starting price of the 2023 Mazda CX-9 is $3,520 higher than it was the previous year. The Touring is now the entry-level grade and costs $40,025 plus the $1,275 destination fee. This fall marks the launch of the revised lineup.
Due to the rearranged model lineup, the base CX-9 has a six-seat configuration with two captain’s chairs in the second row. There was a bench there that could accommodate a total of seven people when the Sport grade first arrived last year. For the 2023 model, it is still an option on higher trim levels.
For the 2023 CX-9 Touring, Mazda is also making some of the features from the formerly optional Touring Premium Package standard. Power moonroof, wireless phone charger, and LED foglights are now standard on the model.
The Touring Plus trim is slightly less expensive for the 2023 model year, which is unusual for an automaker these days. In 2022, the grade is $41,660; in 2023, it is $41,500. That’s a difference of $160, but since the destination fee has increased by $50, the actual savings are only $110.
The remainder of the lineup remains the same. The 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that currently powers the vehicle continues to produce 250 horsepower (186 kW) and 320 pound-feet (434 Newton-meters) of torque on 93-octane fuel or 227 hp (169 kW) and 310 lb-ft (420 Nm) on 87-octane fuel. The only available drivetrain configuration is an all-wheel drive six-speed manual.
The following table contrasts the cost of the 2023 CX-9 with the 2022 model year:
|Model||2023 Model Year Price (Including $1,275 Destination Fee)||2022 Model Year Price (Including $1,225 Destination Fee)||Change|
Mazda continues to offer the CX-9 in three premium colors. Soul Red Crystal Metallic and Machine Gray Metallic are $595. Snowflake White Pearl Mica is $395. These prices are the same as last year.
