Performance is an important element to any vehicle, especially so when you’re talking about a family SUV. The same motor is used to power the Mazda CX-90 in each of its respective trim levels, yet one version of the engine produces more power than the other.
The core motor is an e-Skyactiv®-G 3.3L Turbo Inline 6 engine. The standard outputs measure 280 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque. If you step up to the more powerful version of this engine, though, the horsepower peaks at 340 and the torque reaches a strong 369 lb-ft.
A mild hybrid electric motor supports the gasoline engine, boosting the efficiency and overall power of the SUV. An i-Activ AWD® system will help you put the power to the ground while providing the best fuel economy, measuring an EPA-estimated 24 city/28 highway MPG.*
A model like the Mazda CX-90, which strives to provide the best family experience possible, has to come with an inviting and versatile interior. Mazda made it a priority to build a cabin which is upscale but also usable.
Headroom in each of the three rows measures 39.7 inches in the front, 39.3 inches in the middle seats, and 36.9 inches in the rear. There’s also generous legroom to the tune of 41.7 inches up front, 39.4 inches in the middle, and 30.4 inches for those in the very back.
Technology in the cabin is abundant and comes in the form of features such as:
- An available 12.3-inch full-color center display
- Multifunction Commander control
- Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™
Listening to music or a podcast is a joy thanks to the available Bose® Centerpoint® Surround Sound System with AudioPilot® and 12 speakers. As for interior niceties, you can enjoy heated and ventilated seats, quilted Nappa leather-trimmed seats, a leather-wrapped shift knob, a heated steering wheel, and second-row retractable window shades with an upgrade to a higher trim.
Large SUVs are vessels of opportunity. Their spacious interiors leave room for cargo of all types, like camping supplies, sandy beach equipment, or moving boxes. The Mazda CX-90 falls right in line with these generous cargo dimensions:
- 75.2 cubic feet behind first row
- 40.1 cubic feet behind second row
- 15.9 cubic feet behind third row
Do you have a few items that are for your eyes only? The Mazda CX-90’s trunk offers additional storage space under the cargo floor! Plus, the cargo floorboard is built with a 5-degree incline, making it easy to load and offload gear. Did we mention there’s an available Hands-free Rear Power Liftgate too?
If you want to switch out bags of luggage for a small family camper, the Mazda CX-90 has the strength to do so. When properly equipped, this model can tow up to 5,000 pounds, which equates to a small hard-sided RV, a small recreational boat, a couple of Jet Skis, a lightweight travel trailer, or a utility trailer with a few snowmobiles.
Mazda has certainly delivered with the debut of the Mazda CX-90. This SUV had to hit on various traits to accommodate the many lifestyles around Gastonia, Charlotte, and Lincolnton, NC. Thankfully, it’s a complete package which will fit right into your daily lifestyle.
