The first car on Mazda's new platform is here! As the name suggests, the CX-60 is larger and more luxurious than the recently introduced CX-50. The CX-60 also uses a new architecture with a longitudinal engine layout, which is designed to take the car to a new level of driving comfort. It comes with a plug-in hybrid drivetrain that uses a 2.5-liter gasoline engine and a 134-horsepower electric motor.
The system has a total of 323 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque, and Mazda claims it will have up to 39 miles of range on electric power thanks to a 17.8 kWh battery pack. An eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are included in the standard pack.
The design of the CX-60 may seem a bit lackluster, though overall, the car looks like a larger CX-5 with more chrome. The proportions immediately give away the car's rear-wheel drive because of the long hood and front-axle ratio.
Mazda's interior was impressive in older models, and the CX-60's interior looks a level above current offerings, thanks to elegant materials for the dashboard and seats, including woven textiles, Nappa leather, and wood trim. The CX-60 is a two-row model, the CX-70 will be the same; the CX-90, which will come out much later, is likely to have three rows of seats and will eventually replace the existing CX-9. Although the CX-60 initially launches in Europe only with a plug-in hybrid configuration, that platform will eventually support an inline-six engine with a 48-volt hybrid system.
