Hush now, baby

Wheels (Australia) - - Head to Head -

This Tc-se­ries CX-9’S Sky­ac­tiv chas­sis is ac­tu­ally a gen­er­a­tion 1.5 evo­lu­tion of the CX-5’S, with 24kg in­stead of 7.5kg of sound in­su­la­tion, as well as a sig­nif­i­cantly thick­er­steeled floor­pan, to help cut NVH path­ways.

Also help­ing out is a 65 per­cent tor­sion­ally stiffer body with more high-ten­sile steel (com­pared to the old CX-9), tighter panel gaps, im­proved aero­dy­nam­ics, bet­ter seal­ing, and thicker glass. Re­sult? On coarse roads at 100km/h, there is a 2.5db noise cut.

CX-9’S DASH AND COCK­PIT, EVEN EVEN IN THIS BA­SIC SPORT SPEC, BET­TERS RI­VALS AT THEIR MOST PRE­MIUM. IT’S A CLASS ACT
