Mazda plans to unveil its new CX-70 midsize crossover on January 30, after the two-row SUV was previously scheduled to hit dealers in late 2023.


Essentially a shorter version of the three-row CX-90 (shown below), the CX-70 will represent Mazda's return to a segment it had previously abandoned in 2012 with the departure of the CX-7. Much like its larger sibling, the CX-70 will offer an inline-six engine, along with a hybrid variant. It will effectively fill the gap between Mazda's compact SUV offerings––the CX-50 and older CX-5––and more spacious models like the CX-90. This means it will compete with the likes of the Honda Passport, Hyundai Santa Fe, and Jeep Grand Cherokee.




In terms of styling, the CX-70 is expected to be a slightly more rugged take on the CX-60 that's offered over in Europe. That means a wider track and black cladding like on the smaller CX-50. Powertrains are said to be carbon copies of the ones offered under the hood of the CX-90, so the gas-powered model will likely use the same 3.3 liter turbocharged inline-six that makes 280 hp or 340 hp depending on trim, while plug-in hybrid models will pair their electrical bits with a 2.5 liter inline-four.


After the CX-70 will breaks cover later this month, expect to see them on dealer lots towards middle of the year. An official on-sale date should be announced shortly after its reveal.
