First sight: the new Mazda CX-90

2024 Mazda CX-90 - 01

Mazda’s new flagship SUV infuses grown-up elegance into the brand’s sporty design language

This week in Malibu, CA, Mazda unveiled the CX-90, a three-row, large crossover that elevates the brand’s design aesthetic and takes a step closer toward electrification. Built on an all-new platform, the CX-90 will replace the CX-9 for the 2024 model year and will be the brand’s first large SUV available as a plug-in hybrid.

In addition (and something we didn’t think we’d be writing in the year 2023), Mazda is also debuting a new, 340 hp, 3.3-litre, inline six-cylinder ICE engine with a mild hybrid system, which Mazda says is its most powerful ever in a mass-produced car.
