Drive confidently in a capable Mazda CX-9 SUV from Borgman

Borgman Mazda knows how unpredictable the weather can be in Grand Rapids and West Michigan. That’s why we’re proud to offer the capable Mazda CX-9, packed with features that help drivers all over go confidently into the ever-changing weather.

This article written on InsideMazda describes four of the many features you’ll find inside a New Mazda CX-9 SUV, and showcases them against the typical weather conditions of the four seasons.

Here are some highlights from the article:

A crossover SUV must be steadfast, reliable and comfortable enough to drive to work or across the country, no matter what Mother Nature has in store. So, of course, Mazda’s engineers created the midsize CX-9 to be a master of all four seasons.


Confident drivers are safer drivers, so the Mazda CX-9 comes equipped with a predictive All-Wheel Drive system called i-ACTIV, which is designed to inspire confidence, whether driving in snow or on dry pavement. The predictive AWD system monitors 27 different driving variables, including traction control, the angle of the steering wheel, and even how often you are using the windshield wipers.


Springtime driving conditions can be extremely variable. Heavy rains, late snow and sunshine can all be forecasted in a single day. Drivers need to know that no matter the climate conditions, they’ll be able to confidently pilot their vehicle to their next destination. To help keep occupants safe under low visibility conditions, CX-9 offers Mazda’s unique i-ACTIVSENSE suite of safety innovations. For example, Smart City Brake Support uses infrared radar to cut engine power and prime the braking system if a potential collision is detected and will apply the brakes if necessary.


Summers are full of road trips, which means drivers will have plenty of opportunities to enjoy the powerful and fuel-efficient drivetrain in the CX-9. Drivers won’t have to worry about passing vehicles on the highway or climbing a steady grade. With an ample 310 lb-ft of torque delivered almost instantaneously from its turbocharged 2.5-liter SKYACTIV-G engine, CX-9 can keep climbing any mountain road less traveled while towing a trailer, jet skis or whatever an active family may have in mind for a summer excursion.


As it gets darker earlier in the fall, drivers will appreciate the standard LED headlights and tail lights on the Mazda CX-9. They’re nearly 35-percent brighter than a standard halogen unit and can throw light 10-percent farther than a comparable xenon HID headlight, shining brighter, clearer and more efficiently.
