The brand-new Mazda CX-60 e-Skyactiv D MHEV is already available for pre-order and will go on sale in the UK early next year. The newly introduced e-Skyactiv D diesel engine will power the new model, which will be available in the same Exclusive-Line, Homura, and Takumi grades as the recently introduced PHEV variant.
The new diesel powertrain that will make its debut in the CX-60 is a Mazda first – a 3.3-litre in-line six-cylinder e-Skyactiv D diesel engine that features Distribution-Controlled Partially Premixed Compression Ignition (DCPCI) Technology. This highly innovative advanced combustion technology makes the new e-Skyactiv D unit one of the cleanest diesel engines in the world, achieving a thermal efficiency of over 40%.
Developed using the ‘right sizing’ concept which optimises displacement to improve both fuel and power efficiency, the all-new 3,283cc longitudinally installed common rail electric direct injection six-cylinder e-Skyactiv D unit will be offered with a choice of two power outputs: 200ps with rear-wheel drive and 254ps with Mazda i-Activ AWD (all-wheel drive). Featuring a new 48v Mazda M Hybrid Boost system, the all-new diesel engine combines high output with excellent fuel economy. The new DCPCI technology improves engine efficiency, emissions and fuel economy. The combination of DCPCI and Mazda M Hybrid technologies contribute significantly to the CX-60’s outstanding driving range, performance, frugal fuel consumption and low emissions.
With an entry price of £42,990, the 200ps output engine is singularly offered in Exclusive-Line trim where it is matched to rear-wheel drive, additionally Exclusive-Line can also be specified with the higher-output 254ps version of the new engine for £45,630 and here features all-wheel drive. All Exclusive-Line CX-60s can be specified with the £1,400 Comfort Pack and £1,900 Convenience and Driver Assistance Pack ensuring there’s plenty of opportunity to tailor your CX-60. The £48,380 Homura is offered exclusively with the 254ps AWD drivetrain, as is the range-topping £50,730 Takumi grade – these cars can be specified with the optional Convenience and Driver Assistance Pack, while a Panoramic Roof is optional on Homura and standard on Takumi.
As you’d expect from a Mazda, the new e-Skyactiv D powered CX-60 delivers an impressive blend of performance and efficiency, alongside the driver focused handling, impressive comfort and high-quality found across the CX-60 range.
