2021 CX9 Carbon Edition
Does the 2021 CX-9 have a sound tube like a Mustang?
I just don't get the thinking behind this "feature". I mean, who thought this was a good idea?A sound tube is a pipe that is used to relay sounds from the engine compartment into the cabin. This is usually used to enhance the engine note to the driver. The miata for example have one.

Maybe in a Mustang, Camaro or an Aston- Martin Vantage, but not in a family hauler like the CX-5 or 9, or the 6 sedan.
People used to complain that the earlier Mazda's weren't quiet enough, and now we're talking about piped in noise?
If I'm on a long trip on the interstate, I want a quiet cabin and not some constant engine drone in my ears for hours on end. I mean, really?
Hey I get it. It all comes down to personal taste.To be clear. No one said this was actually done on the CX 9 or a CX-5. Just one member here compared his 2021 to his 2018 and noticed it was louder. Lot of people swap their exhaust for more engine note. Lot of people complains their turbo engine sounds like crap compared to naturally aspirated 6 cylinder. There are lots of tricks in the book to make engine sounds nicer (resonators, sound tubes, fake engine sound through the sound system, etc). Too quiet isn’t always better.
