Mazda has lifted the veil on its latest creation, the 2025 CX-70. Its arrival marks Mazda’s return in some ways into the midsize, two-row crossover segment Echoing the spirit of the former CX-7, the CX-70 emerges as a very close relative to the recently introduced CX-90, sharing its foundation and powertrains while carving out its own space.
Design-wise, the CX-70 is fairly imposing, characterized by a wide, low stance and a broad front fascia. This aggressive aesthetic is complemented by modern, sporty elements such as contrasting black accents and available 21-inch wheels. Like the CX-90, the CX-70 is quite the looker.
The interior is no less impressive, with a design philosophy that emphasizes spaciousness, comfort, and a touch of sportiness. Inspired by the 100th Anniversary Special Edition MX-5, the optional red Nappa leather interiors, detailed with red stitching, evoke a sense of spirited elegance. Practicality is also a key focus, with features like remote-folding rear seats and an optimized cargo area designed to support active lifestyles.
At its core and according to Mazda, the CX-70 is about driving pleasure with everyday utility. The Japanese automaker will build the midsize SUV on its large platform, a choice that not only guarantees ample interior space but also accommodates a range of advanced powertrains. Electrification is a key theme, with each powertrain option incorporating electrified elements to enhance both performance and efficiency. Buyers will have the choice between an e-SkyActiv G 3.3L inline six-cylinder turbocharged engine with M-Hybrid Boost and an e-SkyActiv G Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) system, both of which are offered with the CX-90. It’s unclear now if the CX-70 fitted with the 3.3L engine will be offered with dual outputs as is the case with the CX-90.
Technological enhancements in the CX-70 are geared towards improving the driving experience and safety. Noteworthy among these is the Unresponsive Driver Support system, part of the Cruising and Traffic Support suite, which provides critical intervention in emergencies. Additionally, the integration of Amazon Alexa into the CX-70’s ecosystem represents Mazda’s first foray into voice-controlled convenience within its crossover range, promising a more connected and less distracted driving experience.
Mazda’s all-new 2025 CX-70 will play an important role in the hyper-competitive two-row midsize SUV segment. As always, Mazda has crafted a vehicle that will surely delight those looking for a premium vehicle that will meet the practical demands of their owners.
Pricing will be announced closer to launch date which we presume will take place by summer.
