Mazda is preparing a new crossover: the first image of the CX-60
The premiere of the new SUV of the Japanese brand will take place in 2022. It is likely that the model also has several hybrid versions.
Mazda is generally doing well in the European market. Sales fell seriously only in the “covid" 2020, when retailers managed to sell only 149,794 copies (almost 40% less than in 2019). This year, Mazda is showing positive growth again, with 107,670 vehicle purchases between January and August (no more recent data available), up 26.2% on the first eight months of 2020.

This month it became known that Mazda intends to introduce several new crossovers in the next two years. As we reported earlier, in 2022-2023, the CX-70 (with two rows of seats) and CX-90 (with three rows of seats) crossovers will enter the US and Canadian markets, these cars will be on a new platform and with a longitudinal engine layout. During the same period, the CX-60 (designed for five) and CX-80 (designed for seven pilots) debuted in Europe and Japan. Indeed, in the future, the so-called "American" SUVs will begin to be delivered to other countries where they are needed.
Information about one of the announced new products – Mazda CX-60 – is still kept secret. It is known that the first will take place in 2022, in the same year it will reach the retailers of the old world and the domestic market. More exact dates for the debut and start of sales in the company have not yet been announced.

There is no official information about what the new five-seat crossover will look like. The designer of the Spanish edition of motor.es offered his version of the exterior of the future model. It is assumed that the exterior of the SUV will be sporty and will be made in the spirit of minimalism, since the Japanese still use elements of the KODO style. The rendering shown is based on proprietary images that have previously surfaced online.
The Mazda CX-60’s exterior makers are expected to decide not to seriously deviate from the current corporate design. However, it is worth noting that the car in the render has a slightly different grille, which is connected to a new form of fully LED head optics. This visually gives the design some aggression. The remaining air intakes will be integrated into the front bumper. There are still no photos of the stern and interior.

According to preliminary data, the novelty will be based on a new rear-wheel drive platform. Details about it will appear later. In addition, there is still no exact data on the range of engines of the future CX-60. According to the publication, the lineup is likely to include petrol and diesel engines Skyactiv-X. In addition, the model will have several hybrid modifications.
Recall that recently the Mazda CX-5 crossover has long become the most popular car of the Japanese brand. According to the results of sales for January-September 2021, retailers sold 13,682 items on our market. This result is 0.9% lower than in the first three quarters of 2020. According to this indicator, the SUV ranked 23rd in the list of the most popular models 📌 in 2021.
