2020 MAZDA CX-9 Towing Features

How much can the Mazda CX-9 tow safely? We wouldn’t get excited about maximum towing capacity without a safe way to tow it. Here are just a few of the advanced driver-assist technology features you’ll find on the CX-9 for stability and safety while towing:

  • Dynamic Stability Control with Traction Control System and Trailer Stability Assist — This feature constantly monitors road conditions, and adjusts vehicle characteristics for maximum stability as you take narrow corners in Morton.
  • SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with the G-Vectoring Control System — This intuitive system adjusts wheel torque to promote vehicle control on all road surfaces.
  • i-ACTIV AWD® System — This available feature gauges road conditions, and then distributes power to the wheels where it’s needed most. All four trims get the same towing capacity whether you choose FWD or AWD, but AWD is a valuable safety asset if you expect your Normal drives will often be on unstable surfaces.
