Mazda is quietly in the midst of a transformation that goes beyond simply replacing existing products with updated and redesigned versions. The company is purposely moving some of its models into a more lucrative luxury market.
Two of the models that will highlight this new approach are the upcoming CX-70 and CX-90 mid-size SUVs. The two will be the first Mazda models to launch in our market that get the new longitudinal engine platform that the automaker is preparing. That platform features a 3.0L inline 6-cylinder engine that will benefit from the addition of a turbocharger. Logically, the CX-90 should be the replacement for the CX-9 that has been on the market since 2017 in largely the same form; the CX-70 variant will be a two-row version of it.
In case you’re wondering, Mazda does actually have a CX-60 out there in the market, just not in our market. On the other hand, that model’s styling should be echoed in what we see with the CX-70 and CX-90, so we have an idea of what to expect.
