Journalist, Kareem Latouche took our 2018 CX-9 for a weekend adventure on the beautiful north-coast of Ocho Rios, Jamaica. A three-page spread about his experience with this spacious and luxurious 7-seater SUV was published in the Jamaica Gleaner on Sunday, October 28, 2018.
“Mazda is determined to separate itself from its Japanese counterparts, especially where design is concerned. They have opted for the simplistic, clean, and elegant aesthetics of their European competitor, and no vehicle exudes this mantra more than the CX-9. Mazda refers to this design language as KODO, which is Japanese for ‘Soul of Motion’ and speaks directly to the athletic proportions.” – Kareem Latouche, Jamaica Gleaner
Travelling on the North-South Highway, Latouche experienced its ability to seamlessly overtake as it offered more than enough power while sitting in luxury, free of fatigue.
Eye-catching features of the CX-9 include its stitched leather upholstery and chrome interior accents while on the outside the 20-inch aluminium alloy wheels give the SUV a commanding street presence.
Soul-stirring features include the seamless operations of the Multi-Function commander used to operate the Mazda Connect Infotainment System that offers connectivity with Bluetooth, aux and 4 USB drives. This connection is brought to life with the 12 BOSE Premium speakers throughout the cabin that offer clear and powerful audio.
“This vehicle will definitely be a joy for anyone to drive”
