2024 Mazda CX-90: new video…

Thi sis the best look so far we’ve had of the new 2024 Mazda CX-90 SUV.

This is basically a 3 row, larger version of the CX-60 that came out a few months ago in other countries. n the US it will compete with the redesigned Nissan Pathfinder, the Toyota highlander, and the upcoming 2023 Honda Pilot. Although Mazda is in the middle of a misguided push upmarket. Which means the CX-90 could be more expensive than the competition. Sure, the CX-60 seems to have a very nice interior. But the competition, unlike Mazda, hasn’t been standing still for the past 3 years.

At least there will be a brand-new inline 6-cylinder engine. And an available PHEV version. Something none of its competitors offer in the US.

To me, the CX-60 already looks dated. It seems actually older than the current CX-5. that front end alone is just horrible and old. Sure, the interior seems pretty impressive. But again, the competition isn’t bad either. If Mazda prices this way above popular choices like the Kia Telluride and others, they’ll have a tough time. After spending all that money and having almost no new models for 3 years.

And where is that PHEV version o the MX-30 they’ve been talking about for over a year???

  1. This could actually be the CX-80 that is just testing in the states. I say that because the CX-70 and CX-90 are supposed to be wider than their European counterparts, and this looks basically identical to the CX-60 at the front and back, just longer. Time will tell but that wouldn’t shock me when it comes time for a reveal.

  2. I dont think this looks bad. In fact, the interior in particular looks great. I’m really NOT feeling the Honda CRV Sport Touring Hybrid interior- too much black, including the headliner and column covers now. TOO DARK. I kinda hate that black-out trend by now. So, this leaves me wondering if Mazda is making the CX-90 to be a 3 row, and the CX-70 to be the 2 row version of a similar vehicle (ala Pilot, Passport).

  3. I can already tell the CX-90 is much more than just a larger CX-60. The CX-90 even in camo has road presence, something the CX-60 seems to lack. I hope the interior of the CX-90 ends up being just as impressive as the CX-60, if not more so.

  4. The D-pillar shape on this car is different from the CX-60, so it’s simply a stretched version of that car.

    The CX-60 just went on sale here in Australia. I saw a de-badged one a few weeks ago, and it looked…okay I guess? Neat enough, but not pushing the envelope in any way. It’ll probably meet its sales targets, but it didn’t do anything for me.

  5. I hope Patrick is correct and this is just the CX-80 being evaluated in the US. It doesn’t appear to be any wider than the CX-60, and has the same meh front end. I’d hope they would come up with something better for the 70 and 90 coming stateside.

  6. This has to be the US CX-90. Why would they test the non-US market CX-80 here?
    And yes, it will probably look like a longer CX-60, despite what they claimed earlier about the US models being wider.
    This is just sad…
