2025 Mazda CX-70.
Mazda just announced the launch of the new CX-70 in the US. The event will take place on January 30th.
We already know the new CX-70 will use the exact same powertrains as the current CX-90. That means the new 3.0 Liter Turbo inline 6 cylinder and a 2.5 Liter PHEV. While the Turbo 6 has been getting mostly positive reviews, it seems hard to find a good one about the PHEV. This is really too bad, especially after all these years of waiting for a new product from Mazda…
The CX-70 is basically a shorter, 5-seater version of the CX-90, and it was expected to look very close to the European CX-60. But the teaser photo Mazda has released seems to show a different front end. If you take the X-90 and CX-60 photos and add a cover, the front end would not look like the one on the teaser. The car under the cover doesn’t seem to have the same front end at all.
Unless this is a mistake from a computer-generated teaser, it seems we could actually have something a bit more original than just a shorter CX-90. Which would be nice and very welcome. Since that ghastly grille from the CX-90 and 60 just needs to go. It looks like a weird, buzzier heavy-handed version of the Mazda grille we’ve seen for the past 15 years or so. Something new wouldn’t seem too much to ask…
The new CX-70 will not be replacing the current (and aging) CX-5, and a new generation CX-5 is actually being planned. The CX-90 starts at $ 40,000, while the CX-5 is priced at $ 30,000. That leaves plenty of room for a more upscale new CX-70.
