MAZDA CX-9 Miles Per Gallon: Drivetrain

What influences a car's fuel economy? Well, one of the major factors is its drivetrain. With the 2020 Mazda CX-9, you have two drivetrains to choose from.

First up, there's the standard front-wheel drive (FWD) drivetrain, which is the most fuel-efficient option. With it, the Mazda CX-9 reaches an EPA-estimated 22 city/28 highway MPG.1

In this part of Pennsylvania, though, we see plenty of snow and rain every year. Due to this, you may want to upgrade to the available i-Activ AWD® system with Off-road Traction Assist. This intelligent system monitors the road conditions to predict and prevent traction loss. If it senses a loss of traction, it can direct torque to the appropriate wheels to keep you steady and stable.

With this drivetrain, you'll still maintain an impressive fuel economy-an EPA-estimated 20 city/26 highway MPG.1

MAZDA CX-9 Engine Specs

How does the Mazda CX-9 provide such an impressive MPG? Well, it's in part due to the refined engine.

Equipped with a Skyactiv®-G 2.5T engine, this Mazda SUV generates up to 250 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque. This engine also balances power with efficiency by generating maximum torque at lower RPMs. It also can tow a trailer or other heavy supplies. In fact, it can tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped!

The engine is paired with a Skyactiv®-Drive 6-speed automatic transmission with manual-shift and Sport Mode as well. The automatic transmission helps you maintain smooth and seamless shifting, so you're always operating in the optimal gear during your drives. With manual-shift mode, you can take control when you'd like. By doing so, you can experience the athletic feel of a manual vehicle! 

As for Sport Mode, it delivers a more thrilling ride. By increasing the throttle response, it boosts your acceleration. When you're on the open highway, you can activate this setting to have a more energetic driving experience. You may be thinking you're driving a sports car rather than an SUV!

Aerodynamic Exterior

Along with the engine and drivetrain, another aspect that impacts the fuel economy of a vehicle is its exterior design. To improve its efficiency, the Mazda CX-9 adopts the KODO: Soul of Motion design philosophy, which aims to capture the essence of movement, like an animal in full chase.

The Mazda CX-9 has a low stance, elongated hood, and tapered roofline for a distinctly windswept look that allows air to roll right over it. Its sleek design lets it cut through wind resistance! The result? Improved aerodynamics and efficiency.

Weight & Fuel Tank Size

Other lesser-known MPG factors are the curb weight and fuel tank size! Although they may seem minor at first, they also impact the overall efficiency of your vehicle.

For the Mazda CX-9, it has a relatively lightweight frame despite its size. With the FWD configuration, this Mazda SUV will weigh up to 4,225 pounds. More weight is added on if you choose the AWD system, resulting a 4,388-pound weight.

Like the weight, the fuel tank capacity will change depending on the drivetrain. However, both tanks are large enough to help you avoid frequent stops at the gas station during your commutes and road trips. With the AWD configuration, the fuel tank can handle 19.5 gallons. The FWD configuration can hold up to 19 gallons of fuel.

Advanced Mechanical Systems

Although they may be out of sight, they have great influence over the Mazda CX-9 and its fuel efficiency. What are we talking about? The mechanical systems under the hood! All in all, they play a vital role in the overall efficiency and power output of this Mazda SUV.

For instance, there's the advanced direct injection fuel system. As opposed to alternative methods, a direct injection fuel system gives the engine the chance to quickly burn fuel while maintaining high levels of efficiency and cleaner emissions.

This is just the beginning, though! Other mechanical systems of the Mazda CX-9 include:

  • Direct coil-on-plug electronic ignition
  • Chain-driven dual overhead cams
  • 4 valves per cylinder with variable valve timing
