      Do you know what octane fuel was in this at the time? 2020s received the torque bump with 93

      Winding Road Magazine In reply to Connecticut Dashcam

      We have no way of knowing for sure, but the 10 lb-ft bump is likely negligible. However, all CX-9s (since 2016) make 23 extra horsepower on premium gas, and that would likely be more noticeable.

      I think I heard the paint chip four times during this short drive. Is the special wood worth the jump to Signature trim? Does it do anything better than the Sport or touring trims? As the driver, can I tell a difference? Some of us don't like leather seats or sun/panoroofs.

      @Sero lp Oh I know. I prefer the electronic ones. It's a little more premium, but this car makes up for it in other ways.

      I’m as impressed with my CX-9 Signature as I was when I bought it. The new one seems to exhibit much less road noise than my 2016. I cannot fathom the captains chairs in the second row. That should be an option for all trim levels. They built the CX-8 so they could sell a lwb 7 seat CX-5. I think a no bench option on the higher trim CX-9 is going to cost Mazda, in terms of sales figures. See, I need a middle bench. I wouldn’t want to trade down from my Signature to a GT-unless I could take my auburn Napa leather bench seats with me. They need to figure something out or I may have to get something else. This middle row captain chair thing is an industry fad. Do not like to see Mazda joining in with it. I bought the CX-9 Signature specifically because it was the highest trim level vehicle I could find that had a middle bench.
