2024 Mazda CX-90 3-row SUV revealed with Inline 6 or PHEV options

Mazda’s First product with new rear drive bias platform and range plug-in hybrid and straight 6 engine CX-60 SUVBut it hasn’t come to America.For us, car manufacturers Three Row 2024 Mazda CX-90. and by comparison CX-9 The new Mazda CX-90 is bigger, more powerful, more efficient and more luxurious.

Longer and wider than the two-row CX-60, the CX-90 looks very similar, at least from the A-pillar onwards. The nose is long and the front wheels are far ahead of the cowl. This is, of course, to make room for a longitudinally mounted engine. The front is a bit dull, perhaps as a result of adapting Mazda’s design language to the much different front-end layout. Seen from behind the A-pillar, it’s noticeably longer, but balanced with the nose. The side window treatment is also different from its smaller siblings, with the window sills kept straight instead of sweeping back. This also keeps the rear pillars thin, presumably contributing to rearward visibility. And like all current Mazdas, the surfaces are smooth and taut, and the body cladding is either black plastic or the same color, depending on the trim level. The CX-90’s designers also made extensive use of chrome garnishes to accentuate its ‘elegant styling’. especially, CX-50 and Mazda’s other latest designs.

The dashboard and infotainment design are nearly identical to those of the smaller CX-60, inheriting the design of the CX-50 with a lower, wider and stripped-down design. Mid-level trim we saw at the CX-90 announcement Malibu, California had a material treatment similar to the range-topping CX-50, with black leather accented with orange stitching on the dashboard and doors. The range-topping CX-90 features a classy and distinctive gray fabric on the dashboard and doors, accented with unique hanging stitches inspired by traditional Japanese textiles and hand-bound books. All-digital, the new 12.3-inch display runs Mazda’s latest tech interface also found on the CX-50, which utilizes a console-mounted controller for all functions except Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Only they open the door for the display to act as a touchscreen. Looking at the SUV in person, I also noticed that the cabin is quite spacious. Importantly, in a three-row vehicle, the rearmost seats are more comfortable than the outer seats. CX-9 It has decent legroom and much more headroom.It seems to be a mid-pack compared to the mainstream 3-row crossoverabove average for luxury brands.

But of course, under the skin is the biggest news. Two powertrains are available: a plug-in hybrid that combines an electric motor with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, and a turbocharged 3.3-liter six-cylinder engine with a much lower-powered 48-volt mild-hybrid assist motor. His 4-cylinder engine in a PHEV 323 With horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque, the 6-cylinder engine 340 Horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque.

Both engines are mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission that uses a clutch pack instead of a torque converter. We’ll know more when we get to drive the CX-90 in March, but for now at least, the transmission was developed in-house. Australian driveAll-wheel drive is standard, although it leans toward rear-wheel drive. How much? Again, we’ll know more in the coming months.

Mazda has not provided specific information. fuel consumption But it turned out that the 6 cylinder was better than the current CX-9’s 23 mpg combined, even though the CX-9 has only 250 horsepower on the 4 cylinder. And the plug-in hybrid should perform even better. 17.8kWh battery pack like Mazda MX-30 R-EVExpect somewhere in the 20-40 mile range based on what other SUVs of similar size and battery capacity can manage.

In addition to improved efficiency, the CX-90 gets better towing capacity. And this time, Mazda made it clear. The CX-90 allows him to pull up to 5,000 pounds. That’s a £1,500 improvement on his over the CX-9, which puts the CX-90 on par with his other three-row SUVs.

Additionally, Mazda introduced a new suspension with a new powertrain layout. The front is a double wishbone, and the rear is a multi-link all around. To further aid in handling, Mazda has implemented “kinematic attitude control” like that used in the current Miata. Explained in more detail when testing the equipped Miatabut basically it applies a targeted touch braking to help keep the body roll Checking.

The CX-90 will be available in the US this spring. Pricing hasn’t been announced, but we expect it to be on par with or better than the CX-9. For reference, the CX-9 starts at around $40,000.
