For Kinston-area Mazda drivers searching for a new SUV for carpooling, the 2021 Mazda CX-9 is a solid choice. The CX-9 is a spacious, comfy vehicle that's perfect for a whole group of people. At Mazda of New Bern, we help customers find the best vehicle for their needs. Read on to learn why the CX-9 is perfect for carpooling.

Interior Space

When talking about carpooling, passenger space is the first thing you need to consider, and the Mazda CX-9 has plenty of it. The Mazda CX-9 can fit six people if you get the model with captain's chairs for the second row and seven people if you get one with a bench seat instead.

Legroom is also important, especially if you drive long distances for your commute or if you get stuck in high-traffic areas on your way to work. Fortunately, the Mazda CX-9 offers 41 inches of legroom for the driver and passenger, 29.4 inches of legroom for second-row passengers, and 29.7 inches of legroom for third-row passengers.

Safety Features

Safety is very important when you have a group of people in your vehicle. You need features that will avoid or reduce the impact of collisions. The Mazda CX-9 uses the i-Active Sense Safety Technology, a suite of safety features that include:

  • Lane departure warning
  • Lane Keep Assist
  • Smart City Brake Support
  • Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Close Proximity Warning
  • Distance Recognition Support System
  • Adaptive Front-Lighting System
