 Mazda CX-60, which is a set of 'firsts' for the Japanese brand: it debuts on the market with the plug-in, with its 327 HP of power from the petrol version it is the most powerful vehicle ever put on the road by the brand, and the 2.5-litre petrol engine is also a first, as is the 3.3 diesel.


    From an aesthetic point of view, Mazda CX-60 collects the typical stylistic features of the brand: clean lines, a front made gritty by the characteristic eyelid, muscular sides but without affectation and a tail with a high personality for an overall feeling of solidity and safety typical of the Kodo design that distinguishes the cars of the House.

Despite its 4,745 mm length, the Mazda CX-60 appears slim and streamlined and the vertical development of the new grille, integrated between the LED daytime running lights that extend towards the front light clusters further back, gives a marked presence on the road .

The trunk is capable of accommodating up to 570 litres, which become over 1,700 with the sofa folded down.

  On board, leather, nappa leather, wood, chrome and fine finishes make the passenger compartment of the Takumi - the top - of our car exclusive.

Here the Jinba-Ittai, that 'fusion between horse and rider' that guides every step of the creation of Mazda cars, reaches its peak.

The rigidity of the bodyshell ensures that the driver feels the car's response without delay at all times.

The seats, with their multiple adjustments, are both containing and comfortable, making the journey comfortable in all circumstances.

The work done on the suspensions was impressive, stabilizing the vehicle's trim when moving thanks to an exclusive Mazda vehicle posture control system, the Kinematic Posture Control.

The permanent all-wheel drive system gives it outstanding handling characteristics.

This is also thanks to the ADAS package which includes numerous active safety systems, such as See-Through View - a new generation 360° vision monitoring system that expands the field of vision at low speeds - and Turn Across Traffic Assist in traffic).

Also present, among others, are pedestrian detection systems, emergency lane maintenance and adaptive cruise control.


    Power is one of the distinctive features of the Mazda CX-60 Phev: 327 HP delivered by the powertrain with 500 Nm of torque, made up of a 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol unit flanked by an electric unit and a 17.8 kWh battery, which guarantees up to 60 km with zero emissions.

All of this takes the form of acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.8 seconds and a self-limited top speed of 200 km/h.

A car to drive, thanks to the new 8-speed dual-clutch transmission entirely developed by Mazda.

ANSA Motori tested it for a long time, traveling a few thousand kilometers between the city and the motorway.


    The choice of engines is important: in addition to the 2.5 petrol unit being tested, the range also includes two 3.3 V6 diesel engines - with power ratings of 200 and 249 HP - which will be joined by a 3.0 V6 petrol unit within the year.


    Displacements that have almost disappeared from the automotive panorama, but which are entirely in line with Mazda's declared choice to focus on efficiency and comfort, together with sustainability.


    And in fact these new engines are not only ready for Euro 7 homologation, but even have emissions far below the limits imposed by these stringent standards.


    A power of this level, on a car weighing almost two tons, cannot fail to have an impact on consumption, which varies greatly depending on the type of road traveled on and the lightness of the foot.

On the WLTP circuit, the declared consumption is 1.5 l/100km.

In real life, a lot changes.

If in the city, in fact, 100% electric driving makes the Japanese flagship really not thirsty - the battery range is more than sufficient for daily urban journeys - everything changes on the motorway, where the electric reserve quickly disappears and the powerful petrol engine, speed according to code, does not travel more than 12 km per litre.

However in line with the Germans of the same category, with respect to which the price is competitive: starting from just under 50 thousand euros,

over 67,000 for the full optional car that was the subject of our test.

The challenge is open.
