The leaked photos give us a clear look at the stunning Japanese crossover.
Mazda is currently initiating an aggressive crossover strategy that includes an entirely new range of upmarket CX-badged models. This was inaugurated by the Mazda CX-50, which is essentially a premium rendition of the mainline CX-5, only to be made available to the US market. Supplementing this around the rest of the world will be the slightly larger Mazda CX-60 which is set to be revealed to the world tonight.
The CX-60 has already been leaked to the world, giving us an idea of how the European-spec model differs from the CX-50. Thanks to the low-res images, we were able to see that the upcoming product steers clear of the CX-50's adventurous and athletic design cues and adopts more urban-minded lines.
A new set of images gives us a much clearer idea of what we can expect from the soon-to-be-revealed premium crossover. These leaked pictures show off all angles of the CX-60 as well as the interior design. Up-front, the new SUV offers a premium and distinctive face with LED headlamps that flow into the stylish grille with two light strips. This is accentuated by black air intakes positioned at the side and lower bumper.
At the profile, things are clean and plain with the omission of contrasting colors or plastic wheel arches and rocker panels. Premium and sporty highlights consist of the two-tone diamond-cut alloy wheels, faux-air vents on the front quarter panel, and chrome trimmings on the window surrounds.
The rear of the Mazda CX-60 has a sporty presence thanks to a subtle hatch-mounted spoiler, aggressive LED taillights, chrome-plated faux-exhaust tailpipes, and black trimming positioned at the center of the bumper that creates the effect of a rear diffuser. The final upmarket touch comes in the form of some chrome badging that signifies the model designation.
As to be expected, the interior design of the Mazda CX-60 matches the premium ambiance of the exterior and is largely separated from the CX-50. Although it has two digital displays for the instrument cluster and infotainment system, the controls remain largely analog as seen with a set of buttons for the climate controls. There are also two rotary dials to control the volume and infotainment system alongside the electronic parking brake control on the center console.
