    I think this was the case with the CX-7. Initially the 7 was a sleek new design, but within a few years, the cosmetic tweaks made to the front end turned that vehicle into a somewhat hideous animation. Even the young woman who helped us buy our new CX-9 commented that she thought the now discontinued 7*s looked like a *clown face*. I told her I agreed, and was glad I had the 2007. In hindsight, I think they couldn*t make up their mind what that vehicle was supposed to be, and who it was to appeal to?

    You make a very good observation. They appear to be fully committed to the KODO Soul of Motion philosophy and implementing throughout their line-up. I personally think it is a very refined and elegant look * even understated - in a world where many new designs appear exaggerated, forced, or downright ugly.

    Also, count me among those who do not want panoramic glass roof; if they do eventually make it available, I hope it would be an option independent of trimline for only those interested.
    Edit: I think that as these vehicles have become more and more advanced, the frequency of complete model refresh will occur less often, and minor cosmetic changes will be the rule.

    I tend to differ in this topic.
    technology changes so quickly that they need to update to keep it fresh and competitive, i'm not saying they should do a complete refresh every 4 years or so,
    but i think every 6 years is a reasonable life span for a design.

    If you look at Mazda's new range of vehicles.
    refresh happens about 3 years after introduction and then a new model 2 years after that.
    I believe this is what they did with the mazda 3, cx-5 and the cx-3 give or take a year.

    This Canadian article seems to agree with phxzoom with regard to a major redesign. They very factually state another 3-4 years after 2019.

    So, this is a second-generation family SUV that has proven its worth on the market for 12 years and counting. Mazda is not planning a full revision of the model for another three or four years * something to keep in mind when considering what the resale value of your new 2019 model might be in a few years.

    Mazda Canada Unlimited Mileage Warranty

    What caught my eye in that article is this: Another plus is that Mazda offers an unlimited-mileage warranty on all of its new models. So, I checked out Mazda Canada's website and found the details into Mazda's Unlimited Mileage Warranty:


    Mazda Unlimited Mileage Warranty
    Standard on all new models

    Mazda vehicles are designed to be driven, and to prove it, we’ve introduced Mazda Unlimited – the only warranty program of its kind in Canada.

    Mazda Unlimited features unlimited mileage for our 3-YEAR New Vehicle, 3-YEAR Roadside Assistance, 5-YEAR Powertrain and 7-YEAR Anti-Perforation warranties, so you can focus on every thrilling moment spent behind the wheel instead of the odometer.

    Standard on all new models.


    It's a shame that Mazda USA does not offer this. I mean, I realize the warranty is still definitely not as good as what some other manufacturers (like VW, Hyundai/Kia) offer, but it's still better than the current warranty with mileage restrictions.

    i'm pretty confident a refresh will be offered next year for the 2020 model year (2019) and then 2 years after that a new gen cx-9 will be out in 2021 as a 2022 MY.
