UPDATE: Mazda Canada reached out to shed some light on what’s coming where and when.
The CX-60 will have 300 horsepower.
The powertrain is a combination of a 2.5 litre petrol engine with an electric motor.
Last fall, Mazda announced its plans to launch five new ones between 2022 and 2023. The first to be introduced was the CX-50 which we will get to drive sometime in late March. The next SUV is the CX-60, and it will bring with it a plug-in-hybrid powertrain.
The 2023 Mazda CX-60 will be a two-row SUV aimed at the European and Japanese markets. Under the bonnet will be a naturally-aspirated 2.5 litre four-cylinder petrol engine combined with a “performance-enhancing” electric motor. The resulting output will be in excess of 300 horsepower.
Based on what was shared last October, the Mazda CX-60 will not come to North America. Our market is expected to receive the upcoming CX-70 which will be a two-row SUV built on the same new Large Platform group, and likely using the same powertrain.
Mazda’s European press release speaks of the CX-80 which will launch next, once more for the European and Japanese markets.
The CX-60 premiers on March 8th. It will be interesting to find out more about the PHEV as it will serve as a window for things to come from Mazda.
UPDATE FROM MAZDA CANADA: North America, Canada specifically according to Mazda Canada, can expect to be introduced to the CX-90, a three-row SUV, which will come ahead of the CX-70, which may or may not replace the CX-9.
