The oldest model in Mazda's lineup is the seven-seat CX-9 crossover, but that will be changing in the near future. The first spy shots of the next-generation CX-9 have been caught while undergoing some testing.
The photos show the CX-9 looking like a Mazda3 hatch that has been enlarged by 300 percent. Such details as the five-point grille, sculpted body, and flowing rear end are present. If the recent trend of Mazda's interiors is any indication, expect an impressive looking interior with seating up for seven people.
In terms of power, rumor has it that the CX-9 will use a turbocharged SkyActiv four-cylinder.
We could be seeing the next Mazda CX-9 debut later this year at the LA Auto Show.
