Maybe some people expected aggressive styling like in the Mazda Koeru concept, but that is not the case. However, we can expect to see some similar features like in Koeru concept. This model will be a bit different than its smaller siblings. It will have the larger front grille and slender headlamps. The latter will be very similar to the Koeru concept. Furthermore, this model will have a completely new front bumper and this bumper will contain large air intakes and small fog lights. As we already wrote, the grille is now larger than before and contains Mazda logo in the middle.
The headlights and the taillights of the 2017 Mazda CX-9 will be powered by the LED technology. Some people say that this vehicle is a Miata of the full-size SUV segment, and we must admit that this is really good and probably true claim.
