Mazda New Zealand has quietly revealed the pricing and specification of its new CX-60 and CX-90 SUVs that are set to arrive in the country later this year with electrified powertrains only.
At face value, both models look relatively similar which is down to the fact that they’re both based on the same ‘Large’ platform that will underpin other future models in the Japanese carmaker’s range.
Both the CX-60 and CX-90 look relatively similar in terms of styling, but the main difference between the two is their respective five- and seven-seat arrangement.
Four different variants of the CX-60 are on offer to Kiwi customers, including three plug-in hybrids and one regular hybrid, each with all-wheel drive.
The Touring PHEV starts off the line-up from $78,990 and is fitted with a 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine making 241kW and 500Nm of torque. Some of its highlights include 20-inch silver metallic alloy wheels, leather seats, and a 360-degree view camera system.
We then step into the odd one out of the group which is the Homura hybrid from $81,990. What separates it from the rest is the 3.3-litre inline six-cylinder under the bonnet that makes 209kW and 450Nm of torque. Otherwise, the Homura essentially builds on the Touring grade with 20-inch black wheels, a panoramic glass sunroof, and Mazda’s Personalisation System with Facial Recognition among other features.
Next comes the Homura PHEV from $87,900, which switches back to the 2.5-litre four-cylinder. You can find similar appointments to the hybrid Homura on this model, such as 20-inch black wheels, a panoramic glass sunroof, and more.
Rounding out the CX-60 line-up is the Takami PHEV, priced from $90,990. A choice of 20-inch black or machined alloy wheels are available on the highly-specced model, along with white Nappa leather seats and unique interior detailing including maple wood, chrome trim, and woven textile fabrics.
The flagship seven-seat CX-90 will only be offered in one grade, Takami, with pricing starting from $92,990. This is Mazda’s most powerful road car ever thanks to an uprated 3.3-litre inline six-cylinder which produces 254kW and 500Nm of torque. It’ll also come equipped with a 48V mild-hybrid system.
Some of the larger model’s appointments include a set of 21-inch black or machined alloy wheels, black Nappa leather seats, a panoramic glass sunroof, and Mazda’s Personalisation System with Facial Recognition among other features.
Kiwi customers are currently able to place a deposit of $3000 down in order to secure their preferred model ahead of both of their arrivals later this year.
