2018 Mazda CX-9 gets tech updates and safety features, prices start at $33,070

A couple of years ago, Mazda introduced to us the 2016 CX-9 model year, and it was loved by many. This year, they have decided that it is time to introduce another model year that comes with a handful of technological upgrades. The 2018 model year should be out in dealerships by the end of September.

So speaking of technological upgrades, drivers can now enjoy functions including blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and Smart City Brake Support. The latter works just like an automatic emergency braking system.

I did mention that it will be getting a number of tech upgrades, right? Another new feature that the CX-9 gets will be the company's G-Vectoring Control that comes as standard. What this feature does is that it tweaks the engine mapping, steering inputs, and throttle settings to reduce engine torque when cornering. These adjustments are supposed to put more of the vehicle's weight to the front wheels, while providing a more direct feel from behind the wheel.
