The Mazda CX-9, which is the Japanese automaker’s largest seven-seat SUV, has received a price adjustment as of July 1, 2022.

    UPDATE, 12/07/2022 2:01PM: A Mazda Australia spokesperson has corrected pricing it supplied for the 2022 Mazda CX-9 Azami AWD and Azami LE AWD.

    The 2022 Mazda CX-9 Azami AWD is priced from $70,969 before on-road costs and the Azami LE AWD is priced from $74,219 before on-road costs.

    This means asking prices for these two trim levels are up by $420 and $1170, respectively, due to changes in the luxury car tax (LCT) threshold, according to a Mazda Australia spokesperson.

    Pricing now starts at $46,250 before on-road costs for the Sport FWD and extends to $74,219 before on-road costs for the Azami LE AWD.

    This price increase follows an almost range-wide price increase of $260, as part of wider Mazda price rises due to supply chain constraints and production costs.

    Regardless of the price increases, there haven’t been any specification changes.
