Mazda has chosen Falken tyres as original equipment on the new flagship CX-9. The seven-seat SUV boasts a new 2.5 litre direct-injection, turbocharged engine capable of 170kW of power and 420Nm of torque. With a 6-speed transmission, drivers have the option of front-wheel or all-wheel drive drivetrains.
To match the vehicle, the new Ziex CT50 tyre was developed by Falken. The CT50 offers outstanding handling stability, refined comfort and quietness, which Mazda required for the CX-9.
“We’re excited to be on the flagship Mazda vehicle,” says William Ng, Marketing Manager Falken Tyres Australia. “Mazda were very specific about what they were looking for in a tyre and our engineers delivered.”
