The Mazda CX-9 is a full-size (sometimes considered a mid-size) crossover SUV manufactured by Mazda.
Up until 2016 model, the CX-9 was built on the Ford CD3 platform shared with the Ford Edge and Ford Fusion, and used the same 3.7L V6 engine. The 2016 model was a major redesign of CX-9 which was no longer based on the Ford lineup. Both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive models of the CX-9 are available.
The CX-9 is manufactured at the Ujina 1 plant in Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan.
Despite being built in Japan, the CX-9 is not sold in Japan's domestic market. However, Mazda plans to sell the second-generation model in Japan, starting October 2016.
