Last year, Mazda officially released the brand new CX-30, which also opened up the naming method of the new generation of Mazda SUV series. At the same time, the news that the new-generation Mazda 6 will be built on the longitudinal rear-drive platform has also made Mazda a hot spot that has attracted much attention for a while.
A few days ago, according to a foreign media report, in addition to the new generation of Mazda 6, a brand new SUV called CX-50 will also be based on the rear drive platform. Also exposed at the same time is the power configuration sequence of the new car.
Judging from the reported information, the new Mazda CX-50 will be put on the market as a new generation of Mazda CX-5. In terms of power, it will be equipped with an in-line six-cylinder diesel engine and an in-line six-cylinder gasoline engine. The former The model is SkyActiv-D 3.3, and the latter model is SkyActiv-X 3.0. Among them, the gasoline power will also be equipped with a 48V electrical system.
Although Mazda did not confirm the displacement of the two engines, judging from the marked information, the power of the diesel version will reach 3.3L, while the power of the gasoline version will reach 3.0L.
Obviously, these two engines will also appear on the new generation of Mazda 6. When the whole world is moving towards small-displacement turbocharged engines, Mazda’s two in-line six-cylinder large-displacement engines are really fragrant.
From the point of view of positioning, it is obvious that the new Mazda CX-50 will be bigger than the CX-5 in terms of overall positioning under the influence of a higher-end platform architecture and greater displacement power. This is also in line with Mazda’s previous positioning of moving towards a second-tier luxury brand. How should I put it, the future Mazda is really exciting.
