The refreshed 2010 Mazda CX-9 SUV sports a mildly updated interior, new wheels and, yes, Mazda's happy grille. Actually, on the CX-9, the restyled grille is not nearly as visually intrusive as the Mazda3. Like that compact sedan and hatchback, the Mazda CX-9 receives boldly styled fog light surrounds.
Sporty wheels are also part of the package, as are slightly different taillights. Changes inside are minimal, but the 2010 CX-9 does get a new steering wheel and blue halos around the speedometer and tachometer. Current CX-9 owners might notice that the two vertical strips of wood trim no longer stretch to the very bottom of the center console.
