As for technology, the rear-wheel drive SUV will receive a hybrid power plant based on a 2.5-liter gasoline engine, paired with an electric motor. Their combined output will exceed 300 horsepower. In addition, the range will include in-line “sixes”, which will also receive an electrical superstructure in the form of a 48-volt starter-generator.
The premiere of the CX-60 will take place on March 8. The crossover will not reach the USA: Mazda plans to sell its larger “brother” under the CX-70 index there. Within two years, the European lineup will also include the seven-seat CX-80, followed by the overseas CX-90.
