Mazda CX-60 PHEV: prices, specification and CO2 emissions

7

Mazda has confirmed pricing and specification for its new CX-60 plug-in hybrid (PHEV) SUV, which will arrive in the Autumn.

The new model is the first plug-in hybrid Mazda and provides a 39-mile zero-emission range, combined with CO2 emissions from 33g/km.

Prices start at £43,950, placing it above the CX-5 in Mazda’s line-up. Orders are being accepted now.

The all-wheel-drive CX-60 PHEV is powered by an all-new e-Skyactiv engine, which combines a 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with an electric motor and a 17.8kWh battery.

It has a total power output of 327PS, providing a 0-62mph acceleration time of 5.8 seconds. The car uses an all-new eight-speed automatic gearbox.

Mazda quotes a combined fuel economy figure of 188mpg and says the car’s electric range can extend to 42 miles when driven in the city.

Three trim grades are offered: Exclusive-Line, Homura and Takumi. Drivers can specify two option packs across all grades: Convenience Pack and Driver Assistance Pack. There is also a Comfort Pack available on Exclusive-Line.

The Mazda CX-60 Exclusive-Line is equipped with LED headlights, reversing camera, leather upholstery, heated front seats, lane keep assist and blind spot monitoring.

The £46,700 Homura features body coloured wheel arch mouldings and 20-inch black alloy. Inside, there’s seat heating for the outer rear seats and ambient lighting, plus ventilated front seats and a Bose sound system. It’s also equipped with the Mazda Driver Personalisation System that will recognise the occupant of the driver’s seat via facial recognition and automatically adjust the surroundings – seat position, steering wheel, mirrors, head-up display, even the sound and climate control settings – to fit their physique as well as their personal preferences.

At the top of the all-new Mazda CX-60 range is the £48,050 Takumi, which features 20-inch black machined alloy wheels and white nappa leather upholstery.

The Mazda CX-60 has a boot volume of 570-litres, making it the most practical car in Mazda’s line up.

Mazda Motors UK managing director Jeremy Thomson said: “The Mazda CX-60 heralds the start of a new chapter for Mazda, not only is it our first car with a plug-in hybrid powertrain, but it also sets new standards for interior quality, design and technology – highlighting Mazda’s uniquely Japanese premium brand direction”.

“With the positioning of the high voltage battery at the centre of the car and as low as possible, this is a PHEV with a particularly low centre of gravity. This, combined with a permanent all-wheel drive system incorporating shaft-driven transfer of torque between the axles, gives the car superior handling characteristics on a par with the best in the premium segment.”

The all-new Mazda CX-60 line-up will be expanded at a later date with two additional engines: a 3.0-litre straight-six petrol and 3.3-litre diesel, both utilising a 48V mild-hybrid system.
