Redesigned 2013 Mazda CX-9 Crossover Gets the 'Kodo, Soul of Motion' Styling Treatment
Most car manufacturers will launch their new or updated models at the Paris Auto Show, which opens its doors to the public on September 29.
Mazda, however, has skipped the French capital for the unveiling of the 2013 MY version of its CX-9 crossover, opting instead for the Australian Motor Show to be held in Sydney from October 18 through 28, 2012.

The bodywork of the full-size crossover has been redesigned to incorporate Mazda’s new signature design language named “Kodo – Soul of Motion”, bringing the CX-9 up to date with other models in the range such as the CX-5 and the new Mazda6.

This is the second time that Mazda has facelifted the CX-9 since its introduction in 2007. The previous redesign was in 2009.


Looks good.

Update!

2013 Mazda CX-9 with New Serious Face
For its second facelift, Mazda brings the CX-9 closer to its newer products like the "6" and the CX-5 by applying the 'KODO - Soul of Motion' design theme to front and rear ends of the mid-size crossover, while also making some minor tweaks to the interior and adding a raft of new safety features.

At least from some angles, the 2013 CX-9's new and more serious fascia that features a five-point grille with a chrome surround connected to the revamped headlamps and a brand new bumper design, looks sharper and more modern than the outgoing model.

Finally, Mazda said it has added a raft of advanced "i-ACTIVSENSE" safety features such as Forward Obstruction Warning (FOW), Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and High Beam Control (HBC).

At least in Australia, there are no changes made to the CX-9's 3.7-liter V6 engine that continues to produce 273hp (203kW) and peak torque of 367Nm.
