Why the Mazda CX-9 Is the Best Car for the Winter

February 22nd, 2022 by

You know that winter driving comes with some extra considerations and cautions. You have to deal with extra ice and snow, as well as the lack of traction that comes with the weather. While any Mazda with all-wheel drive is a good choice for winter driving, the CX-9 stands out. Discover what makes the Mazda CX-9 from Nucar Mazda of New Castle the best for the cold months. 

You Get All-Wheel Drive

To start, the Mazda CX-9 comes with i-ACTIV AWD, which gives you extra confidence on the road. This system constantly monitors the road conditions to detect changes. It then adjusts the amount of power sent to each wheel to refine the ride. It also features Off-road Traction Assist that optimizes traction control and torque distribution on uneven terrain, including snowy roads. 

As a note, you can also configure your CX-3 or CX-5 with i-ACTIV AWD to get better winter handling on those models. That being said, those who get behind the wheel tend to prefer the handling of the CX-9 in winter. Of course, its size is also an advantage, as it enables you to take everyone and everything with you. There is also the fact that AWD is standard on the CX-9 but optional on the other Mazda SUVs. 

And Standard G-Vectoring Control Plus

The CX-9 also comes standard with G-Vectoring Control Plus. This system works with the i-ACTIV AWD system to adapt to changing road conditions proactively. This feature responds to your input from the steering wheel. It makes subtle adjustments to the brakes and engine torque. The result is improved stability and a smoother ride no matter the weather. 

Extra Features to Keep You in Control

The Mazda CX-9 also has extra features to keep you in control of your SUV in the winter or any other time of the year. These include roll stability control, dynamic stability control, and traction control. This combination optimizes traction while minimizing wheelspin. 

Safety to Prevent Accidents

The i-ActiveSense Safety Technology that comes standard on the CX-9 helps you reduce the risk of a collision any time of the year. This becomes especially important when there is snow and ice on the road, increasing the risk. Standard features like Advanced Smart City Brake Support featuring pedestrian detection for day and nighttime make a big difference. 

Mazda Connected Services in Case of an Accident or Blizzard

While the Mazda CX-9 keeps you in control of your car, you can’t control what other drivers do. The risks increase in the winter, especially when you factor in potential blizzards. The CX-9 makes you feel safe with its complimentary Mazda Connected Services, which you get for three years. This is in addition to the MyMazda App. It features roadside assistance and automatic 911 dialing. In other words, it can help you get out of a sticky situation in snowy or icy conditions.
