We watched a real review of it on YouTube the other day. It's a CX-90 with the third row removed. I myself leased a CX-90 PHEV in September, 23 and thought when the lease is up I would prefer to "downsize" to the CX70 but it looks like it's just a CX-90 with chairs removed. I leave my third row down all the time anyway so I might as well go with another CX-90 in 2-1/2 years. I'd rather have the choice of folding the seats down versus not having them when I need them. In any event, I love the car and think it's the best I have ever owned my entire 69 years and I have had lots of different brands. This blows them all away in ride, 68 MPG, quietness, firm stance, rock solid materials inside and luxury (white interior with the faux wood and metal detailing looks awesome.).
I'd have liked about 5" shorter, but given its turning circle will likely be the same as on the shorter X5, and I don't have a garage problem, I'll definitely keep looking at the 70 as more information comes out.
We had our suspicions, but now we know for sure.The 2025 Mazda CX-70 debuted late last month and has a whole lot in common with the CX-90.In fact, that's basically what it is, minus a third row of seats and with unique styling to emphasize its sportier nature.The similarities continue under the...
"I can say the regular 3.3 turbo will be coming later this year, just not at launch," said Jon Leverett, project manager for launch strategy at Mazda USA, during The AutoGuide Show Episode 5, adding "so there will be all three on offer towards the summer, but right now, just the high-power and the plug-in hybrid."
Bummer. Being forced to premium unleaded, with the highest HP version, was not something I wanted to see. That the base turbo variant will come out "later", given Mazda's already anemic approach to getting the 70 to market, doesn't provide confidence.
I'd really hoped to hear about both base and high output versions getting a boosted tuning, a bump in HP for 2024, while still running on regular and premium respectively. Likewise, release of both the base and high output versions simultaneously would have been good.
By now they should have had plenty of time to wring out the issues discovered in the CX-90 last year, and given this is essentially a 90-less-third-row there's no reason they shouldn't be able to move both 70 I6 variants out at a crisp pace.
They may think they're being clever, but at least for me (a 5X previous non-Mazda premium SUV buyer, $ available, ready to buy, willing to look at Mazda, the kind of potential new buyer they should be hoping to attract to a Mazda premium vehicle) they're actually pushing me away from the brand.
(There are multiple mid-size premium SUVs that have fewer HP than the higher output I6 turbo, and still sell well, although the 90 is at the hefty end of the weight range. Trying to sell to the, I suspect, smaller group of people who only care for higher HP, while leaving more mainstream premium buyers hanging, is dumb. Then again, Mazda did decide to stick with the maximum length for a 2 row...)
