Mazda previews CX-70 in Canberra

CX-70 to join other Mazda Large Product Group SUVs in showrooms by year’s end

27 Jun 2024

MAZDA Australia has this week previewed its forthcoming CX-70 SUV at the National Gallery in Canberra – marking the first time all four Large Product Group SUVs have premiered together in the world.


Joining the CX-60 launched in 2022 and the flagship CX-90 introduced last year, the CX-70 and CX-80 are set to join Mazda’s Australian portfolio at the end of 2024.


Mazda Australia will therefore become the first and only market globally to offer the CX-60, CX-70, CX-80 and CX-90 concurrently.


“This is a key moment for Mazda Australia. As we move into the next generation of our brand, these four trailblazers all play their own distinct role in sustaining our ambition to offer an unrivalled breadth of choice for our customers,” said Mazda Australia managing director, Vinesh Bhindi.


“Whether it’s the pursuit of life’s passions in the CX-70, the family focus of the CX-80, the lap of luxury in the CX-90 or the CX-60’s embodiment of Mazda Premium technology, our commitment to an all-hybrid model range also opens up a wealth of new opportunities for Mazda owners to fully enrich their life in motion.”


While full details on engine specifications, launch timings, pricing and equipment for the CX-70 are yet to be confirmed, GoAuto understands the five-seat version of the CX-90 will offer similar six-cylinder diesel and petrol 48-volt mild hybrid drivelines displacing 3.3 litres.


Output figures have yet to be announced but are expected to mimic those of the CX-90 with 187kW and 550Nm from the diesel and 254kW and 500Nm from the petrol. Both run an eight-speed automatic transmission as standard and are offered with a rear-biased all-wheel drive arrangement.


The CX-70 is visually similar to the seven-seat CX-90, differentiated only by model-specific bumper covers, blackened exterior garnishing, and bespoke alloy wheel designs.


Inside, the CX-70 is likewise a facsimile of the CX-90 with décor, technology and accommodation levels appearing identical across the two-row cabin.


Mazda has used familiar dual 12.3-inch screens for instrumentation and infotainment, identical HVAC controls (with tri-zone climate control included), and niceties including electrically adjustable heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, wireless device charging pad, surround view camera technology and more.


On the safety front, and again as per the CX-90, it is expected the CX-70 will offer technologies including a blind-spot monitoring system with vehicle exit warning, driver monitor, front and rear parking sensors, LED headlights with dusk-sensing function and auto high beam, and smart brake support with turn-across traffic function.
