Each element of the CX-9 is created to inspire a confident drive. It offers a suite of safety technologies designed to alert you to potential hazards and help you avoid collisions—or lessen their impact.

When you’re backing out from a parking spot, RCTA detects any vehicle approaching from the side and promptly alerts you.
