  • CX-60 to join medium SUV segment
  • Choice of three powertrains, including Mazda’s first plug-in hybrid
  • Local pricing and features closer to launch

Mazda has officially taken the covers of its new CX-60, bolstering its ever-growing line-up in the SUV market.

Announced in October last year and teased just last month, the CX-60 will launch later this year as a two-row, five-seater standing between the CX-5 and CX-8 in Mazda’s local model range, bringing with it a revised design language highlighted by its new-look front and rear lights.

As well as including two straight-six engines – available in petrol or diesel – the CX-60 becomes Mazda’s first-ever plug-in hybrid, with the PHEV variant boasting power figures surpassing any other road-going model from the Japanese manufacturer.

Engine and drivetrain

Headline figures for the CX-60’s flagship PHEV variant come courtesy of its 2.5-litre, Skyactiv-G four-cylinder petrol engine, paired up with a 100kW electric motor and 17.8kWh battery pack to produce a total system output of 241kW and 500Nm.

These numbers not only make it the most powerful PHEV in its class – the CX-60 also becomes Mazda’s most powerful road car in its history, with the electrified drivetrain, eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive system allowing the SUV to complete the 0-100km/h sprint in just 5.8 seconds.

Fuel consumption is rated at a claimed 1.5 or 1.6L/100km (depending on whether the car is specced with 18- or 20-inch wheels respectively) while Mazda also says it can achieve an electric-only driving range of up to 69 kilometres – when driving in the city with the lighter 18-inch wheels fitted.

Compatible with 220-240V AC chargers, the CX-60’s onboard battery can be charged from empty in four hours.

Specifics have not yet been released, but the new model will also be available from launch with a choice of two internal combustion engines – a 3.0-litre, straight-six Skyactiv-X petrol or a 3.3-litre, straight-six Skyactiv-D diesel, both of which will feature Mazda’s 48-volt mild-hybrid system.

Dimensions

Coming in to the Mazda range above the existing and popular CX-5, the CX-60 measures up at 4745 millimetres in length, 1890mm wide, 1680 mm high with a 2870mm wheelbase.

The larger overall dimensions allow for it to carry up to 570 litres in the boot with the second row of seats up, with its capacity jumping up to 1726 litres when the seats are folded flat.

According to Mazda, CX-60 offers 1504mm of shoulder room in the first row and 1441 in the second row, an increase of 44mm and 50mm respectively over the CX-5.

At its minimum weight, the CX-60 tips the scales at 1980 kilograms when fitted with 18-inch wheels, bumping up to 1995kg when the 20-inch alloys are fitted, while its maximum permissible weight remains at 2667kg.
