While the Australian CX-60 specification is yet to be finalised, the European-market model displays an expansive list of inclusions
Details of the all-new Mazda CX-60 premium midsize SUV’s European line-up and list of inclusions were finally revealed early this morning.
With Australia serving as one of Mazda’s most lucrative markets, it’s likely we will see a similarly expansive line-up when the CX-60 arrives here later in 2022 to join the brand’s CX-5, CX-8 and CX-9 SUVs.

So far the only powertrain confirmed for the Australian market is a 241kW plug-in hybrid, though a circa-230kW 3.0-litre straight-six petrol and a circa-200kW turbocharged 3.3-litre straight-six diesel are expected to follow suit.
The European CX-60 range will consist of a four-grade line-up beginning with the Prime-line, followed by the mid-range Exclusive-line, the Takumi, and top-spec Homura grades.
Details are yet to be confirmed for the Australian market but the list of inclusions are expected to be broadly the same across European and Australian markets.
Kicking off the range, the CX-60 Prime-line features a typical array of entry-level inclusions such as fabric seats and plastic across many of its interior surfaces.
However, the rest of the equipment package is far more generous with six-way electric adjustment for the front seats, and an eight-speaker sound system paired with a 12.3-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Other standard features on the CX-60 Prime-line include LED headlights and tail-lights, a black honeycomb grille design and 18-inch grey metallic alloy wheels.
Building on this list of equipment is the CX-60 Exclusive-line that adds a piano black grille design paired with larger 20-inch silver metallic alloy wheels, though the European press kitt notes that 18-inch alloy wheels can be optioned in right-hand-drive markets such as Australia.
Inside the cabin, buyers score features like heated front seats and a heated steering wheel, along with eight-way power adjustment for the driver.
European buyers can also opt for the Exclusive-line with Comfort which introduces black leather upholstery, vinyl material on the dashboard and roof pillars along with fan-cooled ventilation across both front seats and seat heating for the rear seat.
Tying all the features together is Mazda’s new Driver Personalisation System that adjusts features like the seats, head-up display and door mirrors to suit the preference of the driver, and can do so based upon 250 pre-determined settings while using the driver’s seating position and eyeline to choose an optimum driving position
The CX-60 Takumi grade makes a number of exterior and interior design changes to the premium midsize SUV, including a new front bumper design and 20-inch black metallic alloy wheels.
White Nappa leather decorates the seats and other areas of the cabin, alongside natural wood inlays that are complemented by white ambient lighting.
Sitting at the top of the range is the CX-60 Homura grade that features a unique bumper design, as well as a black finish on the 20-inch alloy wheels and door mirrors.
The cabin of the Homura grade features black leather upholstery with contrasting red door trim and a smattering of white ambient lighting throughout the cabin.
Mazda will release a full list of inclusions for the Australian market closer to the CX-60’s launch later in 2022.
