Mazda CX-60 Gains Sporty Styling Kit From Japanese Tuner
The Mazda CX-60 is not the first model that comes to mind when you think of body kits, but that didn’t stop Japanese tuner AutoExe from offering a complete styling kit for it.
AutoExe’s body kit gives Mazda’s latest SUV a more aggressive image, paving the road for the tuner’s upcoming tweaks in the suspension, brakes, intake and exhaust scheduled to be announced in fall 2022.
At the front, there is a prominent splitter with wings on each side. The profile remains largely untouched, with the exception of aerodynamic visors in the side windows. At the back is where the most tuning fun happens, with a large rear wing mounted on the stock spoiler, sporty extensions on the faux vents of the rear bumper, and a decorative diffuser with quad exhaust pipes. The aforementioned parts are compatible with all variants of the CX-60, including the ones coming with the S package from the factory.
The add-ons can be purchased as a complete kit, or individually. According to AutoExe’s website, prices are ¥90,200 ($667) for the splitter, ¥33,000 ($244) for the window visors, ¥90,200 ($667) for the rear wing, ¥82,500 ($610) for the diffuser, and ¥68,200 ($505) for the rear vent trim. The quad exhaust pipes are still under development, so pricing will be announced at a later date, followed by the upcoming mechanical modifications.
The CX-60 range comprises petrol, diesel, mild-hybrid diesel, and plug-in hybrid variants. At the moment, the most powerful version is the PHEV, with a combined output of 323 hp (241 kW / 327 PS) from the 2.5-liter SkyActiv-G petrol engine and a single electric motor. In stock form, the SUV accelerates from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 5.8 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 200 km/h (124 mph), while the 17.8 kWh battery is good for 60 km (37 miles) of EV-only range.
