2017 Mazda CX-9 Reviews

2017 Mazda CX-9

The 2017 Mazda CX-9

The 2017 Mazda CX-9 has gotten rave reviews so far from drivers, whose love for the large crossover extends to its styling, performance, and refined interior, to name just a few.

The CX-9 is the largest crossover in its segment, but, according to a Forbes review, Mazda’s signature Kodo design language makes the expansive vehicle look neat and respectable. Taking design elements from the small CX-3 and mid-size CX-5, the CX-9’s fluid styling and incredible proportions make it one of the most attractive SUVs in the segment.

The interior is finely crafted from the best materials, with soft-touch plastics, comfortable seats, and a color touchscreen, which adds to the CX-9’s sophistication. Add this to the top-of-the-line infotainment technology found at each of the four trim levels, along with a host of i-Activsense safety features including Smart Brake Support and Radar Cruise Control and you have one of the most feature-complete SUVs in the segment.

The CX-9 challenges the V6-equipped SUVs by incorporating a turbocharged four-cylinder, which provides plenty of power at a lower fuel cost. Available AWD improves performance on wet roads, and even without it the steering, gear shifting, and chassis dynamics are all perfectly tuned and smooth.

The CX-9 is one of the most stylish and driving-focused SUVs on the market, so if you’re looking for a vehicle with precise handling that still has tons of room for passengers and cargo, the 2017 Mazda CX-9 is perfect for you.




Everything You Need to Know About Mazda Certified Pre-Owned (CPO)

Mazda LogoAre you thinking about getting a used car but remain unsure about whether or not that is the right idea? Now, thanks to the Mazda Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) program, this is a concern of the past. Mazda CPO models are essentially as good as new – for a fraction of the price.

The Mazda CPO program takes gently used, newer Mazda models, evaluates them rigorously through their 160-point inspection, and then entirely restores them to their former glory. In fact, you may find it difficult to determine the difference between a new and a CPO Mazda vehicle.

Plus, CPO Mazda vehicles come with a specific Mazda Extended Confidence plan, which covers almost everything that Mazda’s New-Vehicle Limited Warranty covers, long after the original 12-month/12,000-mile limited warranty expires. This way, in the unlikely event that something goes wrong, you will be covered.

There are even more bonuses that come with Mazda CPO vehicles, such as a 24-Hour Roadside Assistance Package, an Autocheck Vehicle History Report, various transfer benefits, and even a free trial to SiriusXM Satellite Radio.

Hyundai models are known for their durable yet affordable designs. The Genesis, now known as the G80, in particular had been renowned for its high-class design and exclusive styling. The new Genesis luxury brand comes with a large offering of features so you can enjoy the model that you choose. If you want sophisticated styling and next-generation technology, the Genesis might be right for you.

According to Bloomberg, the latest Genesis models come with a refreshed look that sets them apart on the road. Rivaling more expensive models from elite German brands, Genesis’ lineup is putting other automakers to shame. Testing a Caspian black 2017 Genesis G90, Bloomberg correspondent Hannah Elliott said that “the new Genesis brand will be a separate beast entirely…Genesis has come strongly out of the gate with this flagship sedan.”

The G90 is one of the latest versions of the Genesis luxury models that is on the market, offering an array of premium features. These include, but are not limited to, alloy wheels, heated leather seating, a 12.3-inch touchscreen display, Heads-Up Display (HUD), and more. Best of all, Genesis badging showcases this brand’s luxury.

Under the hood of the G90 is a powerful 365-horsepower engine that can do 0 to 60 in just 5.5 seconds. A smooth transmission provides a pleasant ride, while a tuned suspension ensures optimum handling. There’s nothing like the new G90, or the Genesis brand for that matter. For those who want luxury without pretension, check out the new Genesis luxury lineup.




Mitsubishi’s Newest Crossover Is Confirmed

Mitsubishi LogoThe crossover segment is booming, and every automaker seems to be developing new models designed to redefine the industry. Mitsubishi’s newest crossover is in the same boat with one small difference. The new crossover has already been confirmed and is currently undergoing testing in California.

Osamu Masuko, CEO of Mitsubishi Motors Corporation, confirmed that the automaker plans to add a new five-seat crossover to its lineup. The new model will fit between the midsize Outlander SUV and the compact Outlander Sport crossover. With the addition of a new crossover comes changes to the existing lineup as well.

The compact Outlander Sport will shrink to better match competition like the Subaru Crosstrek and Jeep Renegade. That puts it in the perfect position to grow customer loyalty for the Mitsubishi brand as the subcompact crossover segment is seeing sales trending upward.

Production of Mitsubishi’s newest crossover is set to begin in fall 2017, an indication that the brand is continuing to shift away from the struggling sedan segment.

The new crossover will compete with the Kia Sportage and Ford Escape and boast styling similar to the eX Concept and XR-PHEV II shown at auto shows in 2015.

Here at Gossett Mazda Hyundai Mitsubishi, we’re pumped for the arrival of Mitsubishi’s newest crossover!

Hyundai’s Super Bowl Commercials Use Superstar Talent

The Broncos may have won the Super Bowl, but the big winner of the night was Hyundai, at least when it came to commercials! The Hyundai brand released several creative commercials during the big game. Some of these advertisements played off of big celebrities and their larger-than-life attitudes. Here’s an in-depth look on how Hyundai’s Super Bowl commercials used superstar talent.

“Ryanville”

Ryan Reynolds is one of the most popular actors in the world…so entering a town populated entirely by copies of Ryan Reynolds would certainly be distracting! That is the premise of Hyundai’s Super Bowl advertisement, which showcases how the brand new Hyundai Elantra helps drivers stay focused on the road, rather than on Ryan Reynolds.

“First Date”

Everyone knows that dads tend to be a little overprotective when dates are involved. However, comedian Kevin Hart takes things to the extreme with this hilarious commercial! Drivers can stay on top of things with the Hyundai Blue Link Car Finder system featured in this advertisement.

We also know the Tucson to exhibit a high degree of versatility, but Rockstar Performance Garage (RPG) recently took the Tucson to an entirely new level. The SEMA conference is coming up and an RPG-modified Tucson will be part of Hyundai’s presentation.

Nic Ashby, owner and general partner of Rockstar Performance Garage, explained in a press release what he and his team’s goal was with the Tucson. “The focus behind this build was to create an off-roader that nobody expected.” The Tucson proved to be a great canvas for their work, explains Ashby, because the CUV featured a “rigid frame” and had “plenty of room in the engine bay.”

The modifications for the Rockstar Performance Garage Hyundai Tucson include:

  • Turbonetics Godzilla Blow Off Valve
  • 32-inch MTZ P3 tires
  • Fully-custom, adjustable shocks and struts system from King Shocks
  • High-flow Magnaflow exhaust
  • Smoked rear tail lights
  • Custom off road bumpers
  • King Shocks 2.5-inch Adjustable Strut Coilovers
