Mazda announced the release of five new crossovers

Mazda is preparing to expand its crossover lineup with five new models, the company revealed some information about them. The promising vehicles will have indices from CX-50 to CX-90, modern powertrains and will target the markets of developed countries.

 

The most compact novelty in this lineup - CX-50 - will be based on a common platform with Mazda3, CX-3 and CX-30. It is known that the "parketnik" will have all-wheel drive, its production will be set up in January 2022 at the plant in Huntsville, Alabama. The CX-50 will be sold only in the United States.

 

CX-60 and CX-80 crossovers will focus on Europe, Japan and some other markets. The first of the two models will be five-seater, and the second - seven-seater. Japanese are going to equip cars as a four-cylinder turbo engine (and will offer rechargeable hybrids, capable to move exclusively on electric traction), and the new turbo Skyactiv-X and Skyactiv-D six-cylinder engine (their characteristics have not yet been published). The latter will get in addition a "soft" hybrid component, consisting of 48-volt motor-generator and a small battery.
