After Mazda recently and officially started producing the new CX-50 for North America (in Alabama, USA), here is the announcement of another new crossover from this Japanese company.
More precisely, at the beginning of next month, we are expecting the premiere of the new Mazda CX-60, whose unmasked copies were caught a few months ago while filming promotional material.
Mazda announced earlier that it is preparing five new crossovers for 2022 and 2023, which will be sold in different markets.
The CX-50 is followed by four more crossovers, on Mazda's new Large platform. These are this CX-60 with two rows of seats and then the CX-80 with three rows of seats for the global market, as well as the CX-70 with two rows of seats and the CX-90 with three rows of seats for North America.
Depending on the model and market, the range of these crossovers will include a 2.5-liter four-cylinder petrol, Skyactiv-X 3.0-liter turbo six-cylinder with 48-volt mild hybrid assistance and a plug-in hybrid with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder, as and the new Skyactiv-D 3.3-liter diesel six-cylinder.
The news points out that the CX-60 will be offered in Europe as a plug-in hybrid, with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engine and an electric motor, with a combined more than 300hp.
