All four Mazda CX-9 trims are equipped with the same turbo-4 Skyactiv®-G engine, so you’ll enjoy excellent Mazda CX-9 towing capability no matter which trim you choose. If you’ll be towing on unstable or inclined terrain, the higher  Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring trims are available with AWD. As you can see from the specs, Skyactiv®-G technology helps the Mazda CX-9 deliver great fuel economy for the midsize SUV class:
