2023 Mazda CX-60 Specs and Details

Mazda’s crossover bombardment continues with the unveiling of the new CX-60 for the European, Japanese and Australian markets, highlighted by the introduction of a new platform and the brand’s first in-line six-cylinder diesel and petrol engines, as well as plug-in hybrid powertrains.

The measurements of the car

The midsize two-row CX-60 is slightly larger than the CX-50 introduced for North America last year. It uses Mazda’s new scalable architecture of rear- and four-wheel drive Skyactiv multiple solutions, which measures 4745 mm (186.8 inches) long, 1890 mm (74.4 inches) wide and 1680 mm (66.1 inches) high, while oscillating 2870 mm (112.9 in) wheelbase.

Exterior and interior design

The exterior of the CX-60 is based on Mazda’s ‘Kodo-Soul of Motion’ design philosophy and sports a deeply sculpted front fascia with an aggressive rear. The vertically stacked headlight lights and the L-shaped daytime running lights are striking. Customers will be offered eight colors, namely Jet Black, Deep Crystal Blue, Sonic Silver, Platinum Quartz, Arctic White, Rhodium White Premium Metallic, Machine Grey and Soul Red Crystal. The CX-60 is available with 18- and 20-inch wheels.

Part of your cabin

Inside are a number of features unique to the CX-60. For example, it features a full suite of TFT-LCD digital instruments, a 12.3-inch infotainment display, and a large head-up display that’s three times larger than the CX-30’s. There’s also an intriguing Driver Customization System that incorporates an automatic driving position guide that uses a camera to detect the position of the driver’s eyes and enter information about their height to automatically adjust the seat, steering wheel, head-up display and rearview mirrors into the perfect position.

A large trunk

There’s also ample storage space with the CX-60. With the rear seats upright, it can carry 570 liters (20.1 cubic feet) and that increases to 1,148 liters (40.5 cubic feet) with the rear seats folded and 1,726 liters (60.9 cubic feet) when loaded to the roof.

Powertrains, transmissions and performance

While Mazda hasn’t confirmed details for all markets, we know the CX-60 will be available with three engine options in Europe. The first of these powertrains is Mazda’s first plug-in hybrid that combines a modified version of its pre-existing 2.5-liter SkyActiv-G four-cylinder gasoline engine with an electric motor and a 17.8 kWh lithium-ion battery. The 2.5-liter engine generates 189 horsepower (141 kW) at 6000 rpm and 192 lb-ft (261 Nm) of torque, while the electric motor adds an additional 134 hp (100 kW) and 184 lb-ft (250 Nm), resulting in a combined 323 horsepower (241 kW) and 368 lb-ft (500 Nm). This makes the CX-60 PHEV the most powerful road car Mazda has ever produced.

The Japanese automaker says this variant can reach one hundred kilometers per hour from zero in about 5.8 seconds and continue to a limited top speed of 124 mph or about 200 kilometers per hour. The PHEV offers up to 60 km (37 miles) of all-electric range and the battery can be fully charged in four hours using normal AC charging. The combined WLTP fuel consumption is only 1.5 l/100 km (156 US mpg) with the 18-inch wheels and 1.6 l/100 km (147 US mpg) with the 20-inch wheels.

The second powertrain option consists of a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder gasoline e-Skyactiv X that also features a 48-volt semi-hybrid system. Mazda will also sell the CX-60 with a 3.3-liter e-Skyactive D inline six-cylinder diesel engine with 48-volt mild hybrid technology. Performance specifications for these inline six-cylinder engines have not been announced.

Automatic transmission

All Mazda CX-60 models feature a new eight-speed automatic transmission that features a multi-plate clutch and an integrated electric motor/generator that replaces a traditional torque converter. An i-Activ AWD system also comes standard. There are several driving modes available, namely Normal, Sport, Off-Road, Towing and EV. The CX-60 PHEV has a towing capacity of 2500 kg (5511 lb).

New suspension system

Mazda also invested a lot of time in the CX-60’s suspension system. At the front, the CX-60 features dual transverse arms and a multi-link configuration at the rear. Mazda says the suspension “allows drivers to experience smooth movement of the vehicle no matter the driving situation.” The SUV also features Mazda’s Kinematic Stance Control (KPC) that stabilizes the CX-60 under high G-forces by lightly braking the inner rear wheel to mitigate roll.

Features of technology and equipment

Several safety features come standard, including Mazda’s new 360-degree view monitor, vehicle exit warning, traffic sign recognition, advanced smart city braking assist with pedestrian and cyclist detection and intersection function, rear emergency braking assist with pedestrian detection, Lane keeping assist with steering Assistance and drowsiness detection. There’s also a lane-keeping assist system, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control i, hill launch assist, and an emergency stop signaling system.
