Unveiled in Europe, the first-ever Mazda CX-60 crossover SUV marks the debut of the inaugural vehicle in the car maker’s large product group, which will be made up of models with greatly enhanced driving pleasure, environmental and safety performance.
Set to all bear the CX prefix, Mazda plans to introduce four new SUV models across the globe by the end of 2023, helping the brand to meet the varied needs of its customers in different markets around the world.
Offering outstanding environmental and safety performance, the new model is a two-row, mid-sized SUV with a focus on “driving entertainment”, which forms part of Mazda’s human-centric design philosophy.
In a nutshell, it means that the driver will enjoy every journey in the Mazda CX-60, no matter the distance. In the form revealed in Europe, the new model is equipped with e-Skyactiv PHEV technology.
The powertrain is Mazda’s first plug-in hybrid system, which uses a 2.5-litre petrol engine and an electric motor. Already taking orders for its mid-2022 European release, the new car will be made in Japan.
The Japanese specification model will be introduced in early April, while Mazda Australia has confirmed the vehicle will be released here at some point in 2022, although it is yet to determine exactly when.
Further details, including price and local specifications, will be unveiled closer to launch.
