The new SUV from Mazda will have a longitudinally positioned engine, which will drive the rear wheels. Since it is a plug-in hybrid, an electric motor will also be involved in the drivetrain, but Mazda has not specified whether it will power the front wheels with it to provide all-wheel-drive, or it will support the ICE unit differently.
Mazda's all-new CX-60 will join the company's range of SUVs this year, and it will introduce the idea of Kaichô. The latter is described as the harmony that comes from mixing varied materials and textures.
On a more personal note, I have a feeling that at least one road test will have this word as title or will involve explaining the concept of Kaichô for describing the vehicle.
Another new Japanese word that we will learn today is Musubu, which refers to the "uniquely Japanese way of binding textiles." The latter was the inspiration for the instrument panel stitching, which is one of the few things that can be seen in the teaser image of the dashboard.
Mazda has also announced it would use Nappa leather, maple wood, chrome details, and even Japanese textiles for the interior of its all-new CX-60. Reading between the lines, you may understand that we should expect to see an even higher level of perceived quality onboard the CX-60.
