2022 Mazda CX-60 Hybrid SUV Images Leak Ahead Of Today’s Official Reveal

Mazda’s CX-60 SUV has leaked for the second time ahead of its March 8 official unveiling. Back in November we saw some slightly grainy shots taken while the five-seat SUV was being filmed for a promotional video, but this time leaked images from both what appear to be a media event published ahead of time by journalists and brochure shots show us the newest CX from every angle, including the interior.

The CX-60 is a two-row SUV designed for Europe and Japan, but won’t be coming to the U.S., which will take a bigger CX-70 that even the leakers haven’t managed to get their hands on thus far. Where the CX-60 is available it will be taking on cars like the Skoda Kodiaq, Hyundai Santa Fe, and even trying its luck with more affordable Audis and BMWs.

As we saw in the earlier leak, the exterior design is decidedly conservative. It’s not unattractive, but If you’re looking for MX-30 funkiness and creativity you won’t find it here, the most eye-catching features being the larger grille and the color-coded wheel arch trims. Yeah, that exciting.

Moving inside, the images reveal an interior that’s clearly been copying BMW’s homework, but also has a definite Japanese accent. There’s a chunky multifunction steering wheel, a digital instrument cluster and a rectangular infotainment screen mounted on the dash top that’s operated by a combination of direct touch, or via a rotary controller on the tunnel.

Mazda’s official teasers told us the CX-60’s interior will communicate Japanese craftsmanship with the use of woven fabrics and high-grade woods, while we can expect the spec to include kit like wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a head-up display and fancy optional big-brand hifi.

We can’t see what’s under the hood, but Mazda has confirmed that the CX-60 will be its first PHEV with a combined output of over 300 hp (221 kW / 304 PS). Other available drivetrains will include a pair of six-cylinder 48 V mild hybrids, one  gasoline, and one diesel. All three models send their power to the road via Mazda’s i-Activ all-wheel drive system.

What do you think of the CX-60? Is it too boring, or just what Mazda needs to steal sales from Audi and BMW? And should Mazda bring it to the U.S.? Leave a comment and let us know.

Note: the lead image is of the Japanese-specification 2022 Mazda CX-60 that was captured undisguised a few months ago
