Mazda CX-60 at GIIAS 2023, approx. RM359k – Coming to Malaysia soon?

We previously covered the debut of the Mazda CX-60 in Indonesia. And now, we finally get to check it out in person, so here are live photos of the Mazda CX-60 from Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS) 2023.

The variant of the CX-60 showcased here on Mazda’s GIIAS 2023 show floor is specifically the Kuro, which is the sportier one of the two variants offered here in the country. The other variant, known as the Elite features more elegant design features.

The Mazda CX-60 Kuro, which means black in Japanese, comes with, well, loads of blacked-out exterior details. This includes its signature wing, side signature, window trim, and rear bumper garnished. The 20-inch alloy wheels fitted onto the sporty SUV are also finished in gloss black.

To match its sporty image, the CX-60 Kuro also features a honeycomb front grille, as opposed to the Elite variant’s chrome vertical bar-style grille. Included as standard on the SUV are LED headlamps, LED tail lights, and a powered tailgate with hands-free access.

Under the hood of both variants of the Mazda CX-60 is a 48V M-hybrid Boost mild hybrid system. This consists of a 3.3-litre turbocharged 6-cylinder e-Skyactiv-G engine paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission, alongside a 0.33 kWh lithium-ion battery. Total output is rated at 280 hp and 450 Nm, with power sent to all four wheels via Mazda’s i-Activ all-wheel drive system.

Inside, the Mazda CX-60 Kuro is equipped with tan-coloured Nappa leather upholstery and maple wood trim, as opposed to the Elite’s white Nappa leather. There are also two 12.3-inch displays, which consist of the digital instrument cluster and infotainment screen, as well as a full-colour Active Driving Display. Other standard kits available with the CX-60 in Indonesia are a dual-zone climate control system, a 12-speaker Bose sound system, a panoramic sunroof, and a wireless phone charger.

Safety-wise, both variants of the Mazda CX-60 in Indonesia are equipped with the same amount of safety features. This includes seven airbags, front and rear Smart Brake Support (AEB), front and rear cross-traffic alert (FCTA & RCTA), lane departure warning (LDW), blind spot monitoring (BSM), driver monitoring system, driver attention alert, and a 360-degree camera system.

The Mazda CX-60 is sold as the marque’s flagship SUV in Indonesia with a price tag of IDR1.1888 billion (approx. RM357,663). In Malaysia, the most expensive Mazda model currently sold is the Mazda CX-9, with a starting price of RM281,499.70 (OTR, without insurance).

Thus far, there is no information on whether the Mazda CX-60 will be coming to our shores just yet. But what do you think of the car? Let us know in the comments below.
