Mazda CX-60 2022 Price in Pakistan, Features, Specs. Mazda’s first full-fledged premium SUV is an admirable effort. The cabin of the CX-60 has a distinct feel and plenty of quality in top-spec Takumi trim, which is also good value when compared to established premium rivals. Even though the Mazda performs well in terms of dynamics, some rival plug-in hybrids provide more electric range and refinement. It adds practicality to the mix, which means the Mazda has all-around appeal; it just doesn’t excel in any one area, which is important in an ultra-competitive class like this one.
This new CX-60 represents Mazda’s push to go premium and compete in the upmarket SUV segment with established German brands such as Audi, BMW, and Mercedes. Several other brands have attempted the same trick in the past, with varying degrees of success. Lexus, for example, has finally made it work with its latest NX, vaulting to the top of the class, but Infiniti (at least in Europe) hasn’t fared as well.

However, Mazda has engineering heritage and experience on its side, and the CX-60 will be launched with a very ‘of-the-moment’ powertrain. It’s a plug-in hybrid with a 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and a 17.8kWh battery powering an electric motor for a total of 323bhp and 500Nm (making it Mazda’s most powerful road car ever), as well as a claimed all-electric range of 39 miles.

In some ways, that latter figure is a shame, because just one more mile would reduce the 12% Benefit in Kind tax banding to 8%, increasing its appeal to company car users. But there’s still plenty to like, including up to 188mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 33g/km, as well as a lively 0-62mph sprint time of 5.8 seconds. Given the Japanese brand’s ambition to compete with premium players, we’re testing the top-spec £48,050 Takumi model, which really shows off the car’s best features.
Mazda is emphasising its Japanese heritage with a ‘Crafted in Japan’ tagline and tactile fabric on the dash, which is highlighted by some intricate and delightfully precise stitching. Light maple wood trim inlays, combined with attractive metal detailing and soft leather dotted throughout the cabin, make it feel good for the money. The plastics are also of high quality.
Even the top-of-the-line Mazda CX-60 is £4,915 less than an entry-level Audi Q5 TFSI e 50 Sport, and the Mazda comes with more features. There are two 12.3-inch displays, including a digital dash and a central screen. The latter includes sat-nav, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and the simple click wheel is simple to use, with sharp graphics on the screen.
Other standard features include dual-zone climate control, heated and vented seats, a heated steering wheel (plus heated seats in the back), full keyless entry, LED lights, cruise control, and an abundance of driver assistance and safety technology. A reversing camera, a 12-speaker Bose stereo, and 20-inch wheels round out the list of standard features.
When you’re on the move, you might notice the presence of those big wheels. While they look great, the extra mass of the plug-in hybrid’s battery means that bumps in town aren’t handled as well as we’ve come to expect from Mazda’s best SUVs. However, the CX-60 remains competitive with most of its rivals, including Volvo’s XC60, and the ride becomes smoother as you increase the speed.
The trade-off is good body control, which, when combined with weighty but precise steering, results in a fairly agile CX-60. The PHEV’s extra mass is well contained by the chassis, but it’s clear that by adding the plug-in powertrain to attract company car buyers, Mazda has slightly compromised the usual impressive dynamics we’ve come to expect from its SUVs. The CX-60 still handles well and provides engagement that is a cut above some of the premium alternatives, while providing adequate comfort and refinement.
What’s New in Mazda CX-60 2022:
However, the powertrain is a mixed bag. While the performance on offer is undeniable, with the electric motor delivering a 270Nm burst of torque on its own to make progress feel easy and punchy at low speeds, the 2.5-litre petrol engine sounds coarse when revved. We’ll see if the new six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines that will be available later are any better.
The noise from the naturally aspirated engine is actually well suppressed on the move most of the time, and the CX-60 delivers decent cruising refinement, but around town, this highlights the whine from the electrified side of the propulsion system. Add in a few jerks as the ECUs worked out the best combination of petrol and electric power sources on our test car, and it’s not at the top of the class in terms of smoothness. The shifts of the eight-speed automatic transmission are, for the most part, nicely slurred.
In terms of practicality, the rear seats have plenty of space, with good legroom and no issues with headroom despite our car’s £1,000 panoramic roof; the 570-litre boot is also competitive for the class. You’ll also get two charging cables: a standard three-pin plug and a Type 2 connector. When connected to a 7kW wallbox, the CX-60’s battery will take two hours and 20 minutes to fully recharge, so practicality is also acceptable.
