Mazda Launches SUV Offensive With Five New Models

Mazda wants to upshift into profits and figures SUVs are the way


  • The CX-50 will be one of them and will be assembled in Alabama.

  • Other models will include the CX-60, CX-70, CX-80, and CX-90.

  • Some of these models will be built on Mazda’s new large-vehicle platform.


This announcement is serious news for the automaker. Mazda’s been almost quietly working up to this moment for years with concepts and developing new platforms and powertrains. Now, all that work will come to fruition as they will introduce no fewer than five new SUVs between 2022 and 2023.

The first to come will be the CX-50 which will be assembled at their new assembly plant in Huntsville, Ala., jointly operated with Toyota. Production of the new CX-50 begins next January and will be built on the CX-30’s platform but be wider and roomier than the CX-5. Both will be sold alongside each other.

“We aim to offer customers a diverse choice of SUVs able to provide both the driving pleasure and the latest environmental performance to meet demands in the continuously growing global SUV segment,” Mazda said in its statement as reported by Automotive News, saying the CX-50 will be a core U.S. model.

The CX-60 will be a two-row model aimed at Europe and Japan. North America can expect the CX-70 which will also have two rows of seats and a wider stance. The CX-80 will be a three-row SUV for Europe and Japan. Finally, the CX-90 will be North America’s version of the three-row SUV.

For North America, powertrains will consist of turbocharged, inline-six-cylinder petrol engines and plug-in hybrids.
