The Mazda Motor Corp. will be increasing its Zoom-Zoom family presence in Oman. This goal will be backed by Towell Auto Centre by launching the all-new Mazda CX-9.
"This is the first time the Mazda family is bringing an SUV to Oman, so there is much excitement among the fans of Mazda. We can assure our customers that the eager wait for the outstanding vehicle will be well worth it and we are sure to give the sultanate's SUV market a new definition," said S Kasthurirengan, General Manager, Towell Auto Centre.
The CX-9, based on the stretched Mazda6 platform, is a seven-seat sports crossover sport utility built alongside the small CX-7. The SUV, manufactured at the Ujina 1 plant of the automaker in Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan, made its official global debut at last year’s New York International Auto Show.
The all-new CX-9 features the 3.5 L Ford "Cyclone" V6 engine dubbed as the "MZI" in Mazda guise. The 2008 version of the SUV uses a 3.7 liter V6 engine. According to the Japanese automaker, the new engine will produce 273 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. Additionally, the CX-9 will use an Aisin sourced six-speed automatic transmission with a console-mounted shifter which can be likened to the complex Mercedes-Benz gate.
The CX-9 flaunts more muscular stance and an angular nose. Its sedan-like honeycomb grille adds to its atypical appeal and makes the Mazda CX-9 stand out from the rest in its category. 20-inch alloy wheels come in this machine along with features like high-intensity-discharge (HID) headlights, said AME Info.
On board this stunner is comfort and roominess in splendid abundance, AME Info continued. The three-row sport utility vehicle has front bucket seats and a 60/40 split second row, with a backrest that can recline or fold flat. The third row splits 50/50 and features easy adjustments to make more room for leg space and cargo. Bose stereo with surround sound, keyless entry, power windows and cruise control are standard features on a Mazda CX-9. Add to this the refined chrome accents and dimmed windows for the final touches of a pure feel of opulence.
To bolster the safety features of the SUV, Mazda’s pool of engineers have incorporated a bunch of standard equipment that includes the Dynamic Stability Control, Traction Control, Roll Stability Control, front side impact airbags and 3 row side Air Curtains. The CX-9 will offer options such as a Handsfree Bluetooth phone link, DVD navigation system, Backup Camera, and a rear entertainment system with the Bose 5.1 surround sound.
The Mazda CX-9’s standard safety features also cover an all disc antilock brakes, side impact air bags, three-row side air curtains and an Electronic Stability System (ESS) with rollover mitigation technology, and traction control systems.
Crammed with superb auto features and refined with amenities and finesse like no other in its class, the CX-9 SUV promises to bring an elating dose of Zoom-Zoom to Oman. What is more, the sport utility also gives a wider leeway for customization. Moreover, Mazda aftermarket parts will serve their purpose well.
Separately, Mazda will be offering the Summer Stunner to give aficionados new hope. The ongoing offer entitles a participant to free registration, free five-year unlimited warranty on mileage, free 24-hours road assistance and gift shopping vouchers.
“The main aim of this special promotion was to tailor-make deals for customers according to their individual needs and specifications. We are very glad that we have successfully been able to offer flexible deals to numerous car enthusiasts and bring smiles on the faces of those like Irene, whose vehicles have suffered losses due to the effects of the recent cyclone,” said Annurag Chawla, the Mazda brand manager.
