Here’s How Much Mazda’s New 3.3-liter Inline-Six Diesel Makes In The CX-60

Mazda gave us more details about the CX-60 range during the announcement of the Japanese specification, including the power and torque figures of the new six-cylinder diesel engine that is introduced for the first time under the bonnet of the SUV.

In ICE-only form, the Skyactiv-D 3.3-liter inline-six diesel engine produces 228 hp (170 kW / 231 PS) and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque, sending power to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission which is the sole gearbox option for the entire CX-60 range.

Specs: e-SKYACTIV-D 3.3-liter I6

› Engine: 3.3-liter inline-six cylinder diesel

› Transmission: 8-speed Automatic + AWD

› System Output: 251 HP (254 PS / 187 kW)

› System Output: 406 lb-ft (550 Nm) of torque

› 0-100 km/h (62 mph): 7.3 seconds

› Top Speed: 220 km/h (137 mph)

› Dimensions: 186.7 in (4,742 mm) L x 74.4 in (1,890 mm) W x 66.6 in (1,691 mm) H

› Weight: 1900 kg (4,189 lbs)

For those who want a bit more power, Mazda is also offering an electrified e-Skyactiv D variant of the diesel engine with the addition of a 48V mild hybrid system. This one produces a combined 251 hp (187 kW / 254 PS) and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque. The electric motor contributes 17 hp (12.4 kW / 17 PS) of power and 153 Nm (113 lb-ft) of torque, while the battery has a capacity of 0.33 kWh.

When fitted with the mild-hybrid diesel, the SUV accelerates from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 7.3 seconds, and has a top speed of 220 km/h (127 mph). The weight of the CX-60 in this version is 1,900 kg (4,189 pounds).

On the gasoline front, the much-anticipated naturally-aspirated Skyactiv-X 3.0-liter inline-six has yet to be announced, so we expect it to debut at a later date. There is however the Skyactive-G 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine producing 185 hp (138 kW / 188 PS) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque as an entry point to the CX-60 lineup. The same petrol engine is also available in the recently facelifted CX-5 which slots below the CX-60 in Mazda’s ever-growing SUV range.

Specs: e-SKYACTIV-G 2.5-liter I4 PHEV

› Engine: 2.5-liter inline-four cylinder gasoline + electric motor

› Transmission: 8-speed Automatic + AWD

› Max System Power: 323 HP (327 PS / 241 kW) at 6,000 rpm

› Max System Torque: 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) at 4,000 rpm

› 0-100 km/h (62 mph): 5.8 seconds

› Top Speed: 200 km/h (124 mph)

› Fuel Consumption (WLTP): 1.5L / 100km (156.8 mpge)

› CO2 (WLTP): 33g / km

› EV Range: 61-63 km (38-39 miles)

› Dimensions: 186.7 in (4,742 mm) L x 74.4 in (1,890 mm) W x 66.6 in (1,691 mm) H

› Weight: 2,050 kg (4,519 lbs)

Finally, the plug-in hybrid system is the flagship version of the CX-60 producing a combined 323 hp (241 kW / 327 PS) and 500 Nm (368 lb-ft) of torque. This is the same as the EU-spec model which combines the 2.5-liter petrol engine with an electric motor and a 17.8 kWh lithium-ion battery. The PHEV is the most powerful Mazda ever, but also the quickest accelerating CX-60, completing the 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint in 5.8 seconds while the top speed is limited to 200 km/h (124 mph). Naturally, it weights more than the ICE-powered models at 2,050 kg (4,520 pounds).

Mazda takes pride in the new Skyactiv Multi-Solution Scalable Architecture, coming with double wishbones at the front and a multi-link rear setup for the suspension, the i-Activ AWD system, the new Kinematic Posture Control (KPC) stabilizing system, and plenty of ADAS features. In all variants, the Drive-Mi selector gives access to Normal, Sport, Off-Road, and Towing driving modes. The plug-in hybrid adds an extra EV mode which allows a zero-emission driving range of up to 61-63 km (38-39 miles).

The Mazda CX-60 will reach Japanese dealers in the early fall with pricing to be announced closer to that date. Mind you, the SUV is already available to order in Europe and UK markets with the first deliveries scheduled for this fall. The five-seater CX-60 will be joined by the seven-seater CX-80, while the mechanically-related wide-bodied CX-70 and CX-90 duo for North America will follow shortly.
