2007 Mazda CX-9 Trims

Grand Touring

Avg. Price: $15,239

Sitting at the top of its lineup, the 2007 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring is a sport crossover built on an independent Macpherson strut front and multilink rear suspension. It upgrades from the Touring by adding larger 20-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires, foglights, and xenon HID headlamps. Side mirrors now have turn signals. Remote start (attached to a universal remote) joins the power options, along with memory settings for the driver's seat and mirrors. On the safety side, rain-sensing wipers have been added to standard equipment. Inside the cabin, wood and alloy trim join the leather accents.

Under the hood lies a 24-valve, 3.5-liter DOHC V6 with variable valve timing. It delivers 263 hp and 249 lb-ft of torque at 4,500 RPM, with 18/24 mpg ratings and a 3,500-pound towing capacity. The sole transmission is an Aisin 6-speed shiftable automatic. The front-wheel-drive crossover seats seven in three rows. The second row reclines, moves fore and aft 5 inches, and split-folds flat 60/40. It also has nearly 40 inches of legroom. The third row split-folds 50/50. Cargo capacity expands from 17.2 to 100 cubic feet. Tiedowns are standard, but a cover and net cost extra, along with an optional roof rack. A power liftgate is also available.

Already standard in the 2007 CX-9 Grand Touring are full power features, including power front seats, remote entry, Bluetooth, and wheel-mounted cruise and audio controls for the CD/MP3 player. A Bose sound system with satellite radio and a 6-CD changer cost extra, as does a DVD player. Leather upholstery, heated front seats and mirrors, tilt and telescopic steering, a tachometer and temperature gauge, front and rear climate control, and front and rear intermittent wipers are also part of the package. Five-star safety equipment includes 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, traction and stability control with rollover sensors, dual front-side airbags and side curtain bags for all rows, and front and rear stabilizer bars. Automatic headlights, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a tire monitor are also standard. Options add a sunroof and a navigation system.

Grand Touring AWD

Avg. Price: $14,840

Boasting plenty of features and a strong safety record, the 2007 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring AWD also adds top-notch performance in tricky road situations. Though lacking low-range gearing for off-roading, the automatic AWD system features center and rear locking differentials and can distribute up to 50% of torque to the rear wheels. Since it's a Grand Touring, it also gets larger 20-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires. Power comes from a 24-valve, 3.5-liter DOHC V6 with variable valve timing. Paired with a 6-speed shiftable automatic, it puts out 263 hp and 249 lb-ft of torque, with a 3,500-pound tow rating. Its 18/24 mpg fuel economy disappoints.

Sporting a rear spoiler and dual exhaust, the 2007 CX-9 Grand Touring AWD also adds xenon HID lamps and foglights. Other upgrades include a universal remote with remote start, rain-sensing wipers, mirrors with turn signals, and memory settings for the driver's power seat and mirrors. The dressed-up interior now boasts wood, alloy, and leather trim, along with blue electroluminescent gauges. Power windows, locks, and heated mirrors, heated front power seats, leather upholstery, remote entry, wheel-mounted cruise and audio controls, front and rear climate control, and a CD/MP3 player are all standard. Convenience features include front and rear intermittent wipers, cupholders for all three rows, a front power outlet, tilt and telescopic steering, a tachometer, and an external temperature gauge.

The crossover seats seven in three rows, with 41 inches of front legroom and nearly 40 inches in the second row. Second and third rows split-fold flat (60/40 and 50/50) to expand the 17.2-cubic-foot cargo area to 47 or 100 cubic feet. The cargo bay comes with tiedowns and can be outfitted with a cargo cover and net. A power liftgate is optional. For more storage, a roof rack is available. Second-row seats recline and move back and forth for easier access. Five-star safety ratings include traction and stability control, dual front-side and side curtain airbags for all three rows, front and rear stabilizer bars, and 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist.
