NEW MAZDA SUV MODEL LINEUP COMING IN 2022 & 2023May 1th , 2022
The Mazda spirit is alive and well in the 2022 and 2023 lineup, with every new Mazda SUV designed to inspire and infuse every driving experience with joy.
Renowned for its reliability and performance, the Mazda manufacturer has added three new models to the lineup that are sure to make you reconsider everything you think you know about the lineup.
Named Consumer Reports’ Best Car Brand of 2021, the Japanese automaker recently announced the addition of three new Mazda crossovers that are set to be released by 2023.
Inspired by consumers’ responses to the redesign of the 2022 Mazda CX-5 SUV, which received a sleeker appearance and expanded features, Mazda decided to upgrade its line of SUVs.
Although we are waiting to receive details about when the larger platformed CX-70 and CX-90 will make their debuts, we are on the edge of our seats in anticipation. Each of the soon-to-be-released Mazda SUV models has unique features, and market prices are projected to be competitive for the high-quality that consumers have come to expect.
The 2023 Mazda CX-50, a compact crossover that is due for release in 2022, has a projected list price of $29,000 to $37,000. The estimated pricing for the CX-70 and CX-90 has not been announced, although we anticipate prices to start between $35,000 and $38,000.
EXPLORE THE MAZDA CX-50
First up in the all-new Mazda SUV lineup is the compact Mazda CX-50. With its alluring, intuitive design, the CX-50 is destined for adventure.
The vehicle’s new drive mode, Mazda Intelligent Drive Select (Mi-Drive), features four settings: off-road, towing, sport, and normal. These modes are designed to keep the driver in control in every driving setting.
The control is conveniently positioned in the center console and features smooth transitions. With the flip of a switch, the CX-50 can take drivers on trips across town, treks across mountainous terrain, to off-road adventure driving, all while maintaining a driving experience that keeps humans front and center with remarkable adaptability.
A REIMAGINED EXTERIOR
The new 2023 Mazda CX-50 reimagines what the appearance of a compact crossover should look like, starting with a new exclusive exterior color option, Zircon Sand, a glittering tan color that’s applied using Mazda’s innovative three-layer finishing technique to deliver incredible sheen and shine.
The CX-50 exterior boasts sleek lines with a longer, wider frame than the other SUVs in the lineup. We anticipate that the cargo volume will be greater than the CX-5, giving consumers even more space to stow their recreational gear.
AN INTERIOR DESIGNED WITH THE DRIVER IN MIND
Mazda has long placed the driver at the center of its focus. And that remains true in the new CX-50.
Inside the model, critical elements, including Mi-Drive controls, Multifunction Command Control, and infotainment features are within easy reach from the driver’s position in the cockpit. Other details, including the panoramic moonroof, keep passengers and the driver connected to outside elements.
THE MAZDA CX-70: WHAT WE KNOW SO FAR
Although we are still waiting for the big reveal of the CX-70 details, we do know that this two-row, midsize model will run on a new platform. Current predictions also indicate that the CX-70 will feature increased luxury in the form of premium interior and exterior materials when compared to smaller Mazda crossovers like the CX-5.
Additionally, consumers may be able to choose between an inline-six gasoline engine with a 48-volt hybrid system capable of producing upwards of 300 horsepower (hp), an eight-speed automatic transmission, and a 2.5-liter inline-four engine with a plug-in hybrid drivetrain with a combined output of 323 horsepower.
THE CX-70’S NEW PLATFORM
One of the breakthroughs we’re anticipating with the 2023 CX-70 is an all-new platform, which could feature a longitudinal engine layout. All models will come standard with all-wheel drive, but the new platform could enable rear-wheel drive while delivering refined performance and superior handling.
It may also provide an opportunity for the CX-70’s designers to include dash-to-front axle proportions that are similar to more expensive rear-drive crossovers and sedans manufactured by luxury brands.
THE MAZDA CX-90: WHAT WE KNOW SO FAR
The 2023 Mazda CX-90 is expected to bring some dramatic changes to the Mazda lineup. It will replace the CX-9 and offer three rows of seating.
Like the CX-70, we anticipate that the CX-90 will eventually include a plug-in hybrid model, but those details are still under wraps. We expect the handling to be in line with other Mazda SUV models, offering an intuitive, light, direct drive that’s both pleasurable and entertaining for passengers and drivers alike.
The CX-90 is expected to be the most expensive and largest Mazda SUV. A variety of premium features will likely be included as standard features, including adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, and forward-collision warning.
The third row makes this vehicle suitable for larger families, and the CX-90 will likely provide ample legroom for adults in the rear seats, as opposed to the more kid-friendly third row of the CX-9.
