Mazda CX-9 Adds New Rear Seat Entertainment System

2016, 2017, and 2018 Mazda CX-9 New Rear Seat Entertainment System

Mazda has just announced that a new Rear Seat Entertainment System is now available as an accessory kit for the 2016, 2017, and 2018 models of the Mazda CX-9. For drivers who already own a 2016, 2017, or 2018 Mazda CX-9, this new Rear Seat Entertainment System can be retrofitted and installed as a Mazda dealer accessory from select Mazda dealerships. Additionally, all new and current 2018 Mazda CX-9 models being sold will now have the new Rear Seat Entertainment System included as a port-installed accessory item.

That’s all well and good. However, what’s important to most drivers is 1 question. How is this new Rear Seat Entertainment System different from previous entertainment systems in the Mazda CX-9? What is in this new Rear Seat Entertainment System available in the 2016 Mazda CX-9, the 2017 Mazda CX-9, and the 2018 Mazda CX-9?

Mazda CX-9 Rear Seat Entertainment System Features

The new Rear Seat Entertainment System for the 2016, 2017, and 2018 Mazda CX-9 includes: 

  • 2 Remote Controls 
  • 2 IR-Type Wireless Headphones 
  • 5mm Stereo Headphone Output 
  • Dual 8-inch LCD Monitors (1024 x 600 resolution; 16:9 aspect ratio) 
  • HDMI Ports for Wired Device Connections (Android/Apple Smartphones and Tablets) 
  • Single CD/DVD Player 
  • USB 2.0 and SD Card Inputs 

With multiple monitors, different avenues of video data can stream simultaneously. For example, one monitor can be used to watch a movie on a DVD player, while the other monitor can stream different content from the use of the HDMI cable, SD card, or USB outlet.

However, both monitors can display the same content but don’t need to. It’s up to the audience!
