The current Mazda CX-9 isn't sold in the UK, but its replacement is set to come here in late 2013

The seven-seat Mazda CX-9 SUV will go on sale in the UK when the next-generation model is launched late in 2013.

Just like the CX-5, the new CX-9 will be built from the ground up using the company’s new SkyActiv technologies, including a lightweight chassis and the 2.2-litre diesel engine which boasts class-leading CO2 emissions of 119g/km in the CX-5.

The technology should ensure the new CX-9 has the low running costs and agility demanded by buyers. Prices are likely to start from around £30,000 to match the seven-seat version of the next-generation Hyundai Santa Fe.
