The Mazda CX-9 midsize, 3-row crossover SUV promises a quieter, smoother ride for 2016, plus a quicker, more responsive powertrain and other improvements, according to Mazda. The CX-9 is available in four trim levels—Sport, Touring, Grand Touring, and Signature—in front-wheel (FWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD), with a new turbocharged engine and LED headlights and taillights.

Here are some more facts about the 2016 Mazda CX-9:

1) Standard features on the CX-9 Sport include fabric seating surfaces, electronic parking brake, 18-in. wheels, reversing camera, trailer stability assist, Mazda Connect infotainment with Commander control, and a 7-in. color display. Optionally available is the Sport package, which adds a power driver’s seat, heated front seats, and heated door mirrors.
2) The CX-9 Touring adds an auto-dimming rearview mirror, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, HomeLink garage door openers, black- or sand-colored leather seating surfaces, keyless entry, power liftgate, power front seats, and 8-in. touch-screen display. The optional Touring Premium package includes automatic on/off headlights, LED fog lights, navigation, premium 12-speaker Bose audio system, rain-sensing wipers, rear backup sensors, second-row retractable sunshades, SiriusXM satellite radio, automatic Smart City Brake Support, and a sunroof.
