The new CX-60 is expected to feature Mazda's design language, which emphasizes elegance, simplicity, and a sense of motion. You can anticipate a dynamic front fascia with a prominent grille and sleek LED headlights, contributing to a bold and distinctive appearance. The body may have smooth and aerodynamic lines, providing both a modern aesthetic and improved fuel efficiency. Mazda often prioritizes driver-focused designs, ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable experience for the occupants.

Mazda CX-60 Exterior

Mazda SUVs are known for their practicality, and the CX-60 should be no exception. As a midsize SUV, it is likely to offer a good balance of interior space and manoeuvrability. Expect a spacious cabin with ample legroom and headroom for both front and rear passengers. Mazda typically prioritizes comfort and functionality, so you can anticipate well-designed and supportive seats, ideal for long journeys. Additionally, the CX-60 should come equipped with various storage compartments and cup holders to accommodate daily essentials and keep the interior organized.

The boot space, or cargo capacity, is a crucial aspect of any SUV, especially for those looking for practicality and versatility. Mazda generally designs its SUVs with the intention of providing sufficient cargo space for everyday needs. The CX-60 has a 570-litre boot in the rear to handle groceries, luggage, and other items with ease. Additionally, the rear seats may be foldable in a split configuration to expand the cargo area to a further 1,726 litres.

Interior and Trims

The interior of the CX-60 exhibits a premium appearance, reflecting Mazda's recent efforts to enhance its design language. Throughout the cabin, you'll find high-quality materials, including wood and leather, adding to the luxurious feel. The interior boasts clean and straightforward lines, contributing to an overall sense of openness and roominess.

Equipped with dual 12.3-inch infotainment displays, the CX-60 offers both a touchscreen for intuitive control and a driver's display for essential information. Additionally, a head-up screen comes as a standard feature across all trim levels, allowing drivers to keep their focus on the road ahead.

Three trim levels are available: Exclusive Line, Homura and Takumi.

The Exclusive Line a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system that includes built-in satellite navigation and seamless integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The interior boasts leather upholstery, along with heated front seats and a heated steering wheel for added comfort. A head-up display, front and rear parking sensors with a reversing camera, cruise control, power tailgate, and blind spot monitoring are also included in the feature list.

The Homura version introduces even more convenience and luxury. This upgrade adds electrically adjustable seats, a steering wheel, and door mirrors, complete with a driving position guide and memory function. Additionally, ventilated front seats, a 12.3-inch digital instrument display, and 20-inch wheels are part of the package.

At the top-of-the-range, the Takumi model takes luxury to a new level, featuring white leather upholstery, white maple wood interior trim, and a premium Bose stereo system. Apart from these enhancements, it shares the same standard features as the Homura version.

Power and Performance

The Mazda CX-60 offers two engine options for you to choose from. One is a 3.3-litre diesel engine with mild hybrid assistance, and the other is a petrol plug-in hybrid with a 2.5-litre engine. The petrol plug-in hybrid (PHEV) variant stands out with the highest power output, delivering 327hp, while the diesel engines come in two versions, one with 200hp and another with 254hp.

All engine options are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission for smooth and efficient gear shifts. For the PHEV and the most powerful diesel engine, an all-wheel-drive system is available, ensuring optimal traction and stability in various road conditions. On the other hand, the lower-powered 200hp diesel variant is designed with rear-wheel drive only, providing a more focused driving experience.

Mazda CX-60 Interior

Mazda prioritizes the driving experience in their vehicles, and the CX-60 follows suit. With Mazda's SkyActiv vehicle architecture and G-Vectoring Control Plus system, the CX-60 offers responsive and agile handling, promoting a sense of confidence and control for the driver. The CX-60's steering, suspension, and chassis tuning are likely to be designed to provide a smooth and engaging driving experience.

Overall, the Mazda CX-60 is an exceptional midsize SUV that successfully merges style, performance, and comfort into a single cohesive package. From its captivating design to its agile handling and advanced technology, the CX-60 leaves a lasting impression on drivers and passengers alike. Mazda has undoubtedly raised the bar with this impressive offering, making it a top contender in the competitive midsize SUV segment.
