Get the answers to the most frequently asked questions about the all-new Mazda CX-60
IS THE MAZDACX-60 PHEV, 2WD OR AWD?
The Mazda CX-60 PHEV is based on a rear-wheel drive platform, however, it is only available with all-wheel drive.
HOW DOES THE MAZDA CX-60 BENIFT FROM BEING A REAR WHEEL DRIVE VEHICLE AND ALSO OFFERING ALL WHEEL DRIVE FUNTONALITY?
The Mazda CX-60 benefits from the smoothness and improved handling offered by a rear-wheel-drive setup, and also benefits from the added stability and traction offered by an all-wheel drive system, particularly on low traction surfaces. Additionally, the AWD system will maximise the amount of energy that can be recovered from all 4 wheels when braking using an advanced regenerative braking system, helping to charge the battery on the move.
WHY DID MAZDA CHOOSE A RWD PLATFORM FOR THE ALL NEW MAZDA CX-60?
In short, as the front wheels steer and rear wheels drive the car, the Mazda CX-60 lay-out offers a much better distribution of the forces while accelerating, braking, steering and cornering. As a result, dynamic performances like traction, handling, overall smoothness and road noise are greatly improved compared to a front wheel drive vehicle. For the driver and the passengers, this means improved comfort and a much quieter ride.
WHAT WILL THE NEW POWERTRAIN BE LIKE?
The Mazda CX-60 is the company's first plug-in hybrid. It will feature a straight-four petrol engine combined with an electric motor powered by a 17.8 kWh battery based on our established SKYACTIV powertrain.
