The SUV model that is said to be the junior of the Mazda CX-90 has just been officially announced in the US market, but the selling price is still unknown.
Mazda’s SUV lineup has just been officially completed as soon as the CX-70 model was launched in the North American market. According to information, the Mazda CX-90 and Mazda CX-70 will be distributed in North America, while the CX-60 and CX-80 will be sold globally.
In essence, the Mazda CX-70 can be considered a miniature version of the CX-90. In addition to the difference in size, the CX-90 also has a 3-row configuration. However, these two models still have some different details to guide the car in two different directions.
Specifically, dark-colored details on the Mazda CX-70 are used more, the grille has honeycomb patterns, not many chrome-plated details, and the front bumper and air vents are also somewhat different. In addition, the door handles and rear mirror caps painted in glossy black and the 21-inch wheels have a sportier design.
Although it has a sporty element, from the B-pillar to the back the car is somewhat softer, balancing the design elements. The rear of the car seems to be no different from the Mazda CX-90, but the lower rear bumper has been refined.
The interior space of the Mazda CX-70 is almost the same as the CX-90 when using red leather seats but with an additional red border that is considered exclusive to the CX-70. Even the equipment between the two car models is almost equivalent except for the addition of Amazon Alexa virtual assistant.
Even the safety equipment is no different from recent Mazda SUV models, but there is a new technology, Unresponsive Driver Support, part of the Cruise Control system with the function of detecting the driver not responding to signals. When a warning is displayed by the vehicle, the system will automatically slow down and stop the vehicle and then turn on the warning lights.
In terms of operation, the car is equipped with a 3.3L i6 engine with a capacity of up to 280 horsepower, 450Nm, the S version has higher parameters with 340 horsepower, 500 Nm. There is also a hybrid version that combines a 2.5L gasoline engine with a single electric motor and a 17.8 kWh lithium-ion battery for 323 horsepower and 500 Nm. The price of this car model has not been announced yet, but it is definitely more accessible than the Mazda CX-90.
