New interior and exterior look shown off in New York
8 April 2009

Mazda has revealed a mildly facelifted CX-9 SUV at the New York motor show.

Exterior changes to the Mazda CX-9 include a switch to the now familiar Mazda lower grille, a reworked upper grille, a new bumper design and modified headlamps, tail lamps and wing mirrors. The alloy wheels on the show car are also a new design.

Inside, there's a new seating position, modified door trim materials, larger control switches and a new audio display and centre console design.

Power comes from the same 269bhp 3.7-litre V6 engine in the current model, which is linked to a six-speed automatic transmission.

Sales of the updated CX-9 begin in the US this summer.
