2020 MAZDA CX-9 Towing Features

When towing anything from a camper to a trailer around Rio Rancho, it’s a good idea to keep abreast of your surroundings and ensure you’re staying in control of road conditions to the best of your ability. Luckily, the new 2020 Mazda CX-9 comes with some handy towing features that help in that regard, including:

  • Dynamic Stability Control with Traction Control System and Trailer Stability Assist: These adjust the vehicle’s driving characteristics to help maintain maximum stability while cornering.
  • SKYACTIV®-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control: This system is included as a standard feature on all Mazda CX-9 configurations. It adjusts the weight of the vehicle and the amount of torque applied to the wheels to keep you in control at all times, which can be especially useful while towing.
  • Available i-ACTIV AWD®: This Mazda-specific drivetrain system sends power to the wheels that need it most. While all CX-9 have the same towing capacity, AWD can be a smart add-on feature if you’re planning to do any serious towing on a regular basis, especially on gravel roads or during bad weather.
