Mazda continues to reveal details about its large crossover CX-90. This time the company has published a large 4-minute video (a continuation of the “unboxing”), in which she talked about the design of the car, its engine, and also lit up the interior.

The video talks a lot about the new inline-six engine – not about performance, but rather about the feel. Behind the scenes, you can listen to his sound. A completely new transmission was also developed especially for the in-line “six”.

Apparently, in the video we are talking about an engine with a volume of 3.3 and a power of 340 hp. It is expected that the CX-90 will also have a hybrid version with a 2.5-liter engine – the power of such a power plant is also likely to exceed 300 hp. “Finally we were able to build the car we wanted to buildJay Chen, Head of Powertrain Development at Mazda, said.

The classic layout (with rear-wheel drive) promises a large crossover the handling, if not a sports car, then some kind of BMW 5-series. However, the platform itself is only half the story: Mazda has provided a number of systems that improve handling. These include, in particular, Kinetic Posture Control as in the latest Mazda MX-5. It allows you to brake certain wheels in a turn, thereby improving handling.

The official premiere of the Mazda CX-90 will take place on January 31st.

Mazda, after a series of detailed video teasers, has finally officially unveiled its flagship crossover CX-90. True, there are no details about the cost and some of the technical parameters yet (in particular, the power reserve is not reported), but there are plenty of official images, and there is data on power plants.

The CX-90 has become the most powerful crossover of the brand – in the top version under the hood, an in-line six-cylinder engine with a volume of 3.3 liters, a power of 345 hp and a torque of 500 Nm will be registered. True, even this version, in fact, is a hybrid. The so-called “mild” hybrid includes a 48-volt starter-alternator that provides the start-stop system.

In terms of design (both exterior and interior), there are no revelations: we can say that the CX-90 is a scaled CX-60. By the way, Mazda did not reveal the dimensions of the new flagship, but in any case it should be no less than the CX-9, otherwise 8 seats in the cabin would not fit in any way. However, the three-row CX-90 can be seven or even six-seater.

Mazda focuses on the fact that the interior is made with great attention to detail, and natural veneer, aluminum, and Nappa leather are used in its design.
