The all-new Mazda CX-60 is the newest addition to Mazda's portfolio, and it sits above the perennially popular Mazda CX-5. Over the past few years, Mazda's SUV portfolio has racked up many awards. The new Mazda flagship SUV is powered by a Skyactiv-G 2.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine, a 129 kW electric motor, and a 17.8 kWh high-capacity battery. The new premium SUV will be compatible with this powertrain.
With a combined system output of 327 hp and a huge torque output of 500 Nm from its engine and motor, this vehicle is the most powerful road car Mazda has ever produced. Mazda's first plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) is a model of eco-friendliness. It gets 188 mpg combined in WLTP testing and emits just 33 g/km of CO2 in that same testing cycle.
The combined electric and gas range of the Mazda CX-60 e-Skyactiv PHEV is 39.15 miles at 62 mph or less, and the vehicle can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in just 5.8 seconds.
Mazda's dedication to a solution-based approach to sustainable mobility, as exemplified by the CX-60, and the philosophy of finding the appropriate solution at the right time are on display. It's proof that Mazda can keep up with the market by offering vehicles with excellent environmental efficiency and the fun-to-drive dynamics that are Mazda's hallmarks. With its excellent outward and interior design, the finest Japanese quality, and the newest advances in human-centric technologies and world-leading powertrains, the all-new Mazda CX-60 PHEV exemplifies everything Mazda has developed into its character over the past 100 years. This year marks a milestone for Mazda as the company marks 100 years in business.
The Mazda CX-60, with its overwhelming power and attractive, dynamic style, expresses the intellect and beauty of the newest innovations in Kodo design. These innovations are embedded into the SUV's formidable front-engine, rear-wheel-drive chassis. The UK market offers the Exclusive-Line, Homura, and Takumi trim levels, all of which feature extensive standard equipment; the Convenience Pack and Driver Assistance Pack are available for all trim levels, while the Comfort Pack is reserved for the Exclusive-Line. The United Kingdom provides access to Homura and Takumi. The Homura and Takumi models are the first Mazdas to offer a panoramic roof as an optional extra.
Homura models can be distinguished from Exclusive-Line models by their dark-plated characteristic wing grille surrounds and body-color wheel arch moldings. A honeycomb grille treatment completes the Homura's unique appearance, gloss black mirrors, and 20-inch black alloy wheels. Seat heating for the outer rear seats and ambient lighting are both standards in the Homura model. In addition, the Mazda Driver Personalization System, which uses facial recognition to determine who is in the driver's seat and then tailors the car's settings to that person's height, weight, and preferred music and climate settings, is standard equipment for this trim level. Moreover, the Mazda CX-60 Homura can be purchased with the Convenience Pack, and the Driver Assistance Pack installed.
The Takumi is the highest-priced option of the 2019 Mazda CX-60's available packages. Mirrors that match the body color and 20-inch machined alloy wheels are standard equipment. It also sports a chrome wing grille and side window surround, both of which are trademarks of the brand. This premium trim is further distinguished by a radiator grille styled after glossy black bars. Similar to the Homura, you can decide to include the convenience pack and the driver assistance pack. Among the many features of the Comfort Pack is a see-through monitor that can be rotated to provide a panoramic view from any angle and a wireless charging pad for mobile devices. The Driver Assistance Pack, on the other hand, includes a number of additional active safety features.
The Comfort Pack is exclusive to the Exclusive-Line trim level and includes features including 20-inch alloy wheels and the Mazda Driver Customization System technology, as well as power front seats, front seat ventilation, rear seat heaters, and rear seat ventilation. The CX-60 has three different trim levels, and each one gives you a choice of eight different colors for the outside, including the brand-new Rhodium White premium metallic paint.
Mazda's goal in developing the CX-60's cabin was to create a luxurious space that drew inspiration from Japanese culture while still meeting the highest standards of craftsmanship. In order to achieve this result, we combine cutting-edge technologies with an ergonomic design that prioritizes the user. The high-end, cutting-edge interior design that draws on the principles of Kaichou introduces a disorienting element by combining unexpected materials and textures. The highest quality available Takumi combines maple wood and nappa leather with custom-crafted Japanese textiles and chrome accents. The intricate stitching on the instrument panel was inspired by musubu, the technique of binding. Moreover, the following materials qualify as Takumi quality:
The Hacho style, which can be translated as "asymmetrical balance" or "intentional unevenness," inspired the way the maple wood trim was completed. Japanese Kakenui stitching creates "hanging stitching" seams with spaces between the trim fabrics that reveal the underlying fabric. Light affects the different designs and yarns used in woven textiles in different ways.
The cockpit of every Mazda, including the Mazda CX-60, is the result of painstaking research and development. The design is symmetrical and focuses on the driver to evoke Mazda's trademark sense of unity with the car. The Mazda CX-60 is the most practical vehicle Mazda has to offer, thanks to its 570-liter luggage capacity and cutting-edge passenger comfort and space.
Expect the same amount of driver involvement and vehicle performance from a Mazda in the brand-new Mazda CX-60, which was just unveiled. The CX-60 has a longitudinal front-engine and a rear-wheel-drive layout that works well with Mazda's Skyactiv Scalable Architecture.
Furthermore, Mazda's Kinetic Posture Control system is included on the CX-60. This breakthrough significantly improves vehicle posture in corners by silently stopping the inner rear wheel from reducing roll and dragging the car body downwards. Moreover, the CX-60's center of gravity and stability are improved by situating the high-voltage battery as low as feasible between the front and back axles.
The new Mazda CX-60 PHEV features a new e-Skyactiv powertrain, a new eight-speed automatic transmission, and Mazda's i-Activ All-Wheel Drive system. When equipped with Mazda's Intelligent Drive Select (Mi-Drive), drivers can choose between several different modes, such as Normal, Sport, Off-Road, Towing, and EV, which uses just the electric motor for propulsion. The Mi-Drive system's goal is to provide the driver with the highest level of control and enjoyment possible, regardless of the conditions or the mode selected.
In addition, state-of-the-art i-Activsense driver assistance systems cover all bases and provide the greatest possible level of active safety. Hill Descent Control (HDC) helps drivers safely descend steep inclines with slippery or poor road surfaces, and Adaptive Cruise Control (i-ACC) may now include speed limitations from Traffic Sign Recognition, just two of many new technologies introduced with the Mazda CX-60. See-Through Vision is an advanced, all-around display that can show a wider area at slower speeds. Safely descending steep hills on slick or bumpy roads is made easier with hill descent control (HDC).
After the introduction of the CX-60, Jeremy Thomson, MD of Mazda Motors UK Ltd., stated, "The Mazda CX-60 heralds the start of a new chapter for Mazda." It's our first vehicle to use a plug-in hybrid powertrain, and it also raises the bar in terms of interior quality, design, and technology, all while showcasing Mazda's shift toward being a premium Japanese brand. With the CX-60, a new era has begun for Mazda. The CX-60 is a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) with an extraordinarily low center of gravity "because the high-voltage battery is situated in the middle of the vehicle and as low as it can go," the company says. Later this year, our dealers and consumers will be able to purchase one of these vehicles, and I personally cannot wait. The combination of these features with a shaft-driven transfer of power between the axles in a permanent all-wheel drive system gives the vehicle exceptional handling characteristics on par with the best in the premium segment.
The brand-new Mazda CX-60 is the first of two new large product models to be shown in Europe over the next two years. Shortly after the release of the all-new Mazda CX-60 will come the three-row Mazda CX-80. Two new Mazda engines will join the 2.5-liter e-Skyactiv PHEV drivetrain in the CX-60 lineup in the future. These motors were developed using the principle of "right-sizing," which recommends a specific engine displacement that maximizes efficiency while cutting down on fuel consumption and increasing available power.
The CX-60 lineup will expand to include the new generation's straight-six 3.0-liter e-Skyactiv X gasoline and 3.3-liter e-Skyactiv D diesel engines. Mazda's 48-volt mild hybrid system, M Hybrid Boost, is integrated into both engines. It provides powerful acceleration while also improving fuel economy and reducing emissions. The e-Skyactiv D diesel unit and the e-Skyactiv X petrol engine are both available with rear-wheel drive exclusively. They share the same eight-speed automatic transmission and i-Activ all-wheel drive system as the PHEV. Only the PHEV incorporates both of these technologies.
Mazda's next SUV portfolio includes the battery-powered MX-30, the mild-hybrid-equipped CX-30 with the Mazda M badge, and the refreshed CX-5 for 2022. With the release of the brand-new Mazda CX-60 e-Skyactiv PHEV, Mazda will start a new era in its long and storied history of making highly sought-after SUVs.
