Major car brand discontinues popular model… replacing it with ‘luxurious’ alternative – there’s huge differences

An automotive giant has replaced a popular SUV with a new luxury version of the same vehicle.

Mazda has now confirmed that the CX-9 mass-market SUV will be replaced by the CX-90 at the end of the year.

Despite strong sales, the Japanese auto giant has decided to phase out the CX-9 at the end of 2023 and replace it with an SUV that is both similar and different.

The entry-level CX-90 will cost £33,056, compared to £32,376 for the previous CX-9 model.

However, the higher-end model of the CX-90 costs around £48,404, compared to £40,340 for the higher-end CX-9.

Although the CX-90 follows the same design philosophy as its predecessor, the CX-9, it is based on a new platform and offers more luxury features.

A new design feature, however, is the integration of the daytime running lights into the chrome grill surround, which also functions as an indicator.

Major brands such as Audi, Mercedes-Benz and Ferrari have decided to phase out some cars as part of a fundamental change in their strategy.

Cars, trucks, SUVs and even supercars were not safe from the change, with many of them set to be replaced by more powerful models.

Many of the engines are iconic classics but will be retired at the end of their current life cycle – although some will be renamed.

Motorists should be aware that deadlines may have already passed for motor enthusiasts looking to order and purchase one of the last remaining models.
