The seven-seater SUV will be powered by a 3.3-litre turbo engine
Mazda has unveiled the first-ever CX-90, the company's new flagship SUV in America.
Following the CX-60 released last year, the CX-90 is the second model in Mazda's Large Product Group.
Powering the CX-90 is an all-new e-Skyactiv G 3.3-litre six-cylinder turbo petrol engine which has the highest horsepower and torque from a mass production petrol engine developed by Mazda, with 340 hp and 500 Nm of torque. Paired with the engine is a 48-volt mild hybrid system.
There will also be a plug-in hybrid version comprising a 2.5-liter in-line four-cylinder gasoline engine. Also standard is the i-Activ all-wheel drive system.
All CX-90 powertrains are paired with an all-new eight-speed automatic transmission, specifically designed for the electrified longitudinal powertrains and large platform vehicles.
The multi-speed automatic gearbox, without a torque converter, achieves smooth and direct acceleration while improving drivetrain efficiency.
The CX-90 is also equipped with Kinematic Posture Control which first debuted on the MX-5 Miata, a software feature that suppresses body lift on tight corners to enhance the grip and allows all occupants to maintain a natural posture.
Inside, the CX-90 includes many new, advanced technologies and amenities that elevate the driving experience, while also providing premium comfort and convenience for all occupants. This includes available third-row USB-C charging ports, air conditioning vents, and upgraded interior lighting, among many more features.
While safety features include Smart Brake Support, Blind Spot Monitoring, and Mazda Radar Cruise Control, there is also a new feature called "See-Through View" that is capable of intuitively discerning information necessary for vehicle operation has also been included.
This is of course, on top of the large 12.3-inch active driving display that supports safe vehicle operation and enhances the driver's peace of mind.
That being said, the primary markets where the Mazda CX-60 and CX-80 will be introduced are Europe, Japan, and other regions. The Mazda CX-70 and CX-90 here on the other hand, will mainly be launched in North America and other regions.
Whether it will come to this part of the world remains unknown, so watch this space for more updates on the new and handsome Mazda CX-90.
