Mazda just announced prices of the all-new 2016 CX-9 crossover
The all-new 2016 CX-9 is almost ready for launch and today Mazda released its prices. Mazda has been without a competitive three-row crossover now for a while. Although the CX-9 is not a new model name for the brand, the prior vehicle was co-developed with a lot of Ford content and did not sell well for the company. We have compared Mazda’s prices to the two competitors most closely aligned with the new family hauler, and Mazda has placed all of the CX-9’s prices within the existing highs and lows set by the 2016 Toyota Highlander and Honda Pilot.
Without more wordiness, here are the prices Mazda announced today:
• CX-9 Sport $31,520
• Sport Package $950
• CX-9 Touring $35,970
• Touring Premium Package $1,745
• CX-9 Grand Touring $40,170
• CX-9 Signature (AWD Standard) $44,015
To these prices, add $900 destination fee. Also, add $200 if you lean toward Snowflake White Pearl Mica or $300 if you want either Soul Red Metallic or Machine Gray Metallic. You may also want to budget for dealer documentation fees, which can run from $200 to about $800 depending upon state.
We compared these prices to the Toyota Highlander first. The Highlander starts lower at just $29,990. However, similarly equipped models should line up with the CX-9. The Honda Pilot also starts a bit lower at $30,145. However, we noticed that the top-spec Pilot tops out around $46,570. Therefore fully loaded CX-9s may have a slight edge on the Pilot.
Mazda says the CX-9 should be at your local dealer by late-spring.
