It's blatantly obvious to spot that the 2013 Mazda CX-9 has benefitted from a redesigned exterior styling, one that fits in with the rest of Mazda's line-up. The 2013 Mazda CX-9's interior also gets rebuffed with the addition of a new navigation screen and some other apps including Pandora. The rest of the usual suspects return for the 2013 model year including the 3.7-liter V-6 engine, which is good for 273 horsepower, without burning you at the pump. The EPA estimates that the 2013 Mazda CX-9 averages 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway while the all-wheel drive model scores 16 mpg city and 22 mpg highway.
New for 2013
Like the rest of Mazda's current lineup, the 2013 CX-9 went under the knife to match the updated design language, as seen on the front and rear end.
