Talking about the details of the CX-60 Exclusive-Line as the cheapest, there are three package offers that consumers can choose from, so it doesn’t look standard on the road. The Comfort Pack is only offered on the Exclusive-Line for £1,400. It is given 20-inch rims, electric and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats and there is a Mazda Driver Personalization System.

The fabric material has a different pattern and the thread can change color when exposed to light. The sewing model called ‘Kakenui’ presents a hanging appearance and there is a gap in the joint material.
The All New CX-60 combines comfort and space for passengers, not to forget loading goods or luggage space reaching 570 liters.
The agile movement of the CX-60 PHEV is supported by an eight-speed transmission supported by Mazda’s i-Activ All-Wheel Drive special wheel drive system. The speed of the car can also be selected, through Mazda Intelligent Drive Select (Mi-Drive). Modes: Narmal, Sport, Off-Road, Towing, and EV. This last option allows the CX-60 PHEV to run quietly without exhaust emissions.
For consumers who want a more different machine, should be patient. This is because the 3,000 cc e-Skyactiv X six-cylinder petrol engine and the 3,300 cc Skyactiv-D diesel engine will follow. Features M Hybrid Boost – Mazda 48V mild hybrid – combines powerful performance and efficient fuel consumption and low emissions.
