There’s a new SUV coming to Mazda, one that comes to redefine many things about the brand, including its focus now on a premium market.

The CX-90 is a three-row SUV of seats that sooner or later will replace the CX-9. It is enough to look at its specifications to understand that Mazda does not want to put it at the level of a Toyota, a Volkswagen or a KIA; The Mazda CX-90 is born with what is necessary to take care of Acura, Lexus, Infiniti… and even some luxury German.

A lot of that starts from your platform. The CX-90 was developed under a new architecture, called LARGE. Is about a rear wheel drive platform —although always under an all-wheel drive application— and longitudinal engine. In the case of the CX-90, it is a 3.3-liter inline six-cylinder turbo engine, with mild-hybrid technology, capable of generating 340 hp and 369 lb-ft. If you’re familiar with BMW setups, you’re sure to find similarities to what’s new from Mazda; the architecture of the CX-90 is very similar to that of an X3 or an X5.

It premieres an eight-speed automatic “without torque converter”, developed specifically for this platform.

The Mazda CX-90 will also be available on plug-in hybrid version. Under this configuration, it loses the 3.3-liter turbo engine, in favor of Mazda’s well-known 2.5-liter block, which, supported by an electric motor, is capable of generating a total of 323 hp and 369 lb-ft. The brand has not mentioned its electric autonomy, but it does specify a 17.8 kWh battery.
