- mazda announced that it will add three new suvs to its lineup by 2023.
- the first to arrive will be the cx-50, which will use the cx-30's platform and be revealed next month.
- new cx-70 (two-row) and cx-90 (three-row) suvs will debut mazda's new longitudinal architecture with inline-six-cylinder engines and plug-in-hybrid options.
mazda is about to take its luxury aspirations to the next level, introducing three new suvs by 2023. two of these new vehicles will use its long-awaited new longitudinal architecture with inline-six-cylinder engines and plug-in-hybrid options.
the cx-50 will be the first to arrive, debuting in november, and it will be a mid-size crossover, like the cx-5 (pictured), that will share a platform with the cx-30, so expect some black body cladding. it will enter production at mazda's factory in huntsville, alabama in january. mazda will sell the cx-50 alongside the cx-5, and we think it will likely start a few thousand dollars higher the current cx-5's $26,545 starting price.
mazda's new longitudinal platform will debut two new models: the cx-70 and cx-90, both of which mazda says will have widebody designs. the former is a two-row suv and the latter a three row. they'll have the choice of either a turbocharged inline-six engine or a plug-in-hybrid powertrain that uses an inline-four gasoline engine. as with all of mazda's cx models, all-wheel drive will be standard.
the cx-70 will be introduced as a new model like the cx-50, but mazda says the cx-90 will replace the cx-9 in its lineup.
