The CX-50 will arrive next year with the CX-70 and CX-90 shortly after using Mazda’s new longitudinal architecture with six-cylinder engines.
Mazda is about to take its luxury aspirations to the next level, introducing three new SUVs by 2023. Two of these new vehicles will use its long-awaited new longitudinal architecture with inline-six-cylinder engines and plug-in-hybrid options.

The CX-50 will be the first to arrive, debuting in November, and it will be a mid-size crossover, like the CX-5(pictured), that will share a platform with the CX-30, so expect some black body cladding. It will enter production at Mazda’s factory in Huntsville, Alabama in January. Mazda will sell the CX-50 alongside the CX-5, and we think it will likely start a few thousand dollars higher the current CX-5’s $26,545 starting price.

Mazda’s new longitudinal platform will debut two new models: the CX-70 and CX-90, both of which Mazda says will have widebody designs. The former is a two-row SUV and the latter a three row. They’ll have the choice of either a turbocharged inline-six engine or a plug-in-hybrid powertrain that uses an inline-four gasoline engine. As with all of Mazda’s CX models, all-wheel drive will be standard.
The CX-70 will be introduced as a new model like the CX-50, but Mazda says the CX-90 will replace the CX-9 in its lineup.
