- '18 CX-9 Signature
Looks like it's manual, hooray. It's very likely that the US CX-9 will function the same way. I still wouldn't opt for it though - you're basically trading the middle seat for a 2nd row center console. It adds a lot of storage room, but I personally would prefer having seven seats instead of six.EDIT:
Okay, I'm confused as to if the US is getting powered 2nd row or not. Video below shows a 2020 Signature and it's still the same manual operation. Skip to around 16:25 to see him move the 2nd row seats. Do note that this is a dealership in Canada so it might just be the Canadian trim? I doubt that though.
