Mazda Australia has announced pricing and specification details for its most luxurious SUV to date, the CX-60, although it won’t arrive until June 2023.

The CX-60 will be offered with new inline-six petrol and diesel engines, but the headline is the new plug-in hybrid (PHEV). Prices range from $59,800 to $87,252 before on-road costs, with a few option packs available above this.

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


At the top of the range is the first Mazda plug-in hybrid, called ‘e-Skyactiv PHEV’.

It pairs a 2.5-litre petrol engine with an electric drive motor and large 17.8kWh battery pack in the floor between the axles, with system outputs of 241kW and 500Nm – enough for a 5.9-second 0-100km/h time.

This makes the CX-60 PHEV the most powerful roadgoing Mazda to date.

Mazda also claims overall electric range in EV mode is up to 76km, although in the UK the more realistic WLTP-rated claim is a still good 62km. Fuel consumption is rated at 2.1L/100km, over the first 100km when the battery is charged.

Mazda claims the battery can be recharged in around 2.5 hours using a 7.2kW AC wallbox home charger.

Meanwhile the six-cylinder turbocharged petrol and diesel both share a 3.3-litre displacement and join the line-up for the first time, with each using 48V-based ‘M Hybrid Boost’ mild-hybrid technology.

The petrol engine is expected to produce 209kW and 450Nm, and offer a 0-100km/h time of 6.9 seconds – which Mazda points out is almost a second faster than the CX-5 with its 2.5-litre turbocharged four.

The diesel delivers 187kW and 550Nm and hustles from 0-100km/h in a sharpish 7.3 seconds. It also offers a hybrid-beating fuel economy claim of just 4.9L/100km.

“Mazda’s right-sizing approach to engine design gives the e-Skyactiv D turbo diesel a similar weight to that of a conventional four-cylinder diesel. It also offers a broad speed range at which lean burn can occur,” the company claims.

“… The large capacity actually improves efficiency with the higher volume of air enabling more complete combustion and a wider lean-burn range leading to lower fuel use and reduced NOx emissions.”

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

Tech and safety

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

Driver assistance systems include a ‘See-Through View’ for the 360-degree cameras; and a system that adjusts the seat, wheel, head-up display and mirrors to match the driver’s eye position and uses facial recognition to remember presets for vehicle, audio and climate settings.

A ‘Driver Entry/Exit Assist’ function slides the steering wheel and seat out of the way to make it easier for drivers to get into and out of the Mazda CX-60.
