    I have to say I fully didn't expect them to offer captains chairs in the CX-9. I figured if Mazda ever intended so, it would have been the case from the start. Personally, I enjoy having the bench with the 7 person capability vs 6.

    Interesting that the Signature's Auburn leather is going away and being replaced by the walnut brown found in the Mazda 6 Signature.


    I am not sure I understand their proposed concept of captains chairs. The main reason people would want o go with the option (at least for vans) is to allow for easier access to the third row. I don't know why anyone would not simply choose to keep the current iteration since they can simply flip the armrest down and gain the functionality of a console, but also get the 7th seat if needed. Odd decision

    I am interested to see what wheel offerings the signature gets as well as whether they add the third row AC vent as well as beef up the entertainment unit. An interior piano finish delete, as well as increased front console capacity would be welcome.

    In 2020 Mazda CX-8 Gets Modest Equipment Update For Japan Market, one of the changes is the 2nd-row Captain's Chairs. So, I think that this change will definitely be in the 2020 CX-9.

    Mazda better get their refresh out the door soon. The CX-9 just lost a comparison test to the Korean twins:
    https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews...suvs-compared/

    While the handling tests were won by the CX-9 (barely), the CX-9 lost all the acceleration and braking tests. It also has the worst towing rating, smallest interior, and basically finished tied with everything else on fuel economy. It did win the subjective ratings of "fun to drive" and "exterior design", but lost everywhere else.

    The big CUV market has become very competitive. Mazda can't afford to wait 9 years for a new model like they did with the previous generation. This one will be 5 years old and the competition has caught up and arguably passed by.

    When I looked at Telluride it seemed to approach $50k region with features similar to GT or Signature which are in low $40k range.

    Same here. The KIA dealerships are currently marking up the price. Also, the 2nd row Captainís chairs-only configuration of the Telluride SX Premium AWD was a bit of a deal breaker. If they had offered it with a bench, I would have considered waiting for the demand to die down.

    More details here: New interior colors for Signature. https://www.prnewswire.com/news-rele...300946849.html

    Highlights: More torque (320 ft lb), available captains chairs, new off road traction button, hands free lift gate, some new interior lighting.

    Honestly, I picked up my 19 GT back in August and I've been worried that some major overhaul was coming (ala new Mazda3 styling)...this is a relief and I'll happily trade these new features for the 7500 off msrp.

    From the review: "Still the undisputed driver's choice"

    This is why I chose the Mazda, and would still choose it over the Korean twins (as impressive as they are). The transmission alone is worth it.
    Car design and engineering is a game of tradeoffs - you simply can't have everything. Most manufacturers de-prioritize driving enjoyment over things like cargo space and infotainment because that's what most customers care about (I get it). However I'm happy there's at least one family-sized vehicle out there that I actually look forward to driving. As long as Mazda stays true to "Driving Matters", they'll retain me as a happy customer.

    "Fans of this trim level now have the option between Deep Chestnut or Parchment Nappa leather seating surfaces to match the Santos Rosewood interior trim. A new, darker silver wheel finish is unique to the CX-9 Signature, helping distinguish this prestigious top-tier trim level. CX-9 Signature is now available in the brand's lustrous Soul Red Crystal premium exterior paint option."

    Huh, I did not know that the Signature was never offered in Soul Red.

    I hope somebody comes out with a full, detailed list of updates including small things like:
    • Will they finally show a TPMS display for each wheel?
    • Do away with the lock/unlock button on the door handle, and adopt the new Mazda3 style?
    • Side mirrors go down when reversing?

    Probably just a typo, but the article said 750$. 7500$ would be a huge change.

    I think the new off road mode button is just Traction control off that as been renamed to be more accurate. I am basing myself on this video, where Mazda engineers explained how traction control off helped the CX-9 in a specific tricky AWD test. Kind of neat to see his comments make it into production for the 2020 model. You can watch the whole video for explanation, but the renaming of the button is clearly mentioned at 11:33. https://youtu.be/5wWY7JhNZ8U

    Definitely some nice updates.

    So from what it sounds like there's no exterior refresh? It doesn't need one but I'm surprised that there isn't the usual grill freshening and such. Especially since the rest of the Mazda line has gone to a mesh grill leaving the CX-9 alone with a slat design.

    ~7500 off for a 2019 (with current discounts / incentives - more like 7k I guess w loyalty). Those likely won't be available right away on a 2020.

    We purchased our 2019 Signature for $41448. At an MSRP of $46710, this equates to a discount of $5262 which includes a $1250 rebate ($750 loyalty + $500 APR). If I didn't take the Mazda 0.9% APR incentive, we would be eligible for an additional $1500 rebate which would make it $6762. So, yes, around $7K discount on a new 2019.

    In GA, the cash back incentive has now increased to $2500 (from $2000) and no more additional rebate for APR incentive.
