Mazda has announced the updates to the 2023 CX-9 SUV with the big change being the deletion of the base Sport trim level. That now means that the higher Touring trim level is now the base trim level and that also brings a higher starting price with it.
The 2023 CX-9 pricing starts at $40,025, which is an increase of $3,120 over the 2022 CX-9 Sport. But that higher starting price also means there’s more standard features on the CX-9, including 18-inch wheels, heated and ventilated front seats, second-row captain’s chairs, three zone climate control, a wireless charger and a sunroof.
All CX-9 models are powered by a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 250 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque using 93 octane fuel. It also comes standard with a 10.3-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
