2023 Mazda CX-60 price and specs

Mazda Australia has detailed the pricing and specification of its most luxurious SUV to date – the CX-60 – ahead of first arrivals in April 2023.

The range starts at $59,800 before on-road costs for the Evolve 3.3T I6 petrol AWD, and extends to $87,252 before on-road costs for the Azami 2.5 I4 PHEV AWD.

Mazda has stuck to familiar variant nameplates, with the CX-60 available in Evolve, GT, and Azami spec levels.

The CX-60 is offered with new inline-six petrol and diesel engines, as well as a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) powertrain across all three trim levels.

In terms of performance, technology, interior design and finish, and price, it’s nudging into new territory for the company.

The CX-60 is underpinned by Mazda’s new ‘Skyactiv Multi-Solution Scalable Architecture’, which is designed to support rear- or all-wheel drive and will underpin more future premium models.

Driver assistance systems available on some models include a ‘See-Through View’ for the surround-view camera; and a system that adjusts the seats, wheel, head-up display and mirrors to match the driver’s eye position and uses facial recognition to remember presets for the vehicle, audio and climate settings.

Drivetrains

Power in the 2023 Mazda CX-60 comes from a range of three powertrains which are available on all trims levels.

The 3.3-litre turbocharged inline-six petrol engine produces 209kW of power and 450Nm of torque. Mazda claims models with this engine equipped can do the 0-100km/h sprint in 6.9 seconds.

The 3.3-litre turbocharged inline-six diesel engine produces 187kW and 500Nm of torque. Mazda claims models with this engine equipped can do the 0-100km/h sprint in 7.3 seconds.

The flagship engine in the 2023 Mazda CX-60 range is the 2.5-litre four-cylinder plug-in hybrid (PHEV) which has a total system output of 241kW and 500Nm. It’s the first Mazda PHEV, and the brand’s most powerful road-going model to date.

The PHEV powertrain comprises a 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, a 100kW electric motor and a 17.8kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Mazda claims models with this setup equipped can do the 100km/h sprint in 5.9 seconds.

All engines are combined with a newly-developed eight-speed automatic transmission, with drive sent through a new rear-biased all-wheel drive system with Normal, Sport, Off-Road, Towing and EV (PHEV only) drive modes.
