MAZDA has revealed its new large CX-80 SUV and announced it will be priced from £48,920 when it arrives later in 2024.

The car maker says the new model will cost £3,500 than its current big SUV the CX-60 across the range of Exclusive-Line, Homura, Takumi, Homura Plus and Takumi Plus models.

Powered by the same engines as the Mazda CX-60, there is a choice of plug-in hybrid - which combines a Skyactiv-G 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with a 129kW electric motor and a 17.8 kWh high-capacity battery - or Mazda's advanced in-line six-cylinder 254ps 3.3-litre e-Skyactiv D diesel engine.

Across both powertrain options, the Mazda CX-80 is all-wheel drive.

Dimensionally, the all-new Mazda CX-80 sees the wheelbase grow by 250mm compared to the CX-60 to deliver the space needed for a three-row interior.

The CX-80 is 26mm taller than the CX-60 but the same width with the styling and nose on profile identical to its smaller sibling.

The car will come with a choice of three middle row configurations - a three-person bench seat, two captain's seats with a walk-through space or two captain's seats with a fixed centre console.

Mazda says the seven-seat layout with the middle row-bench will be standard while the two different six seat layout configurations will be optional.

Jeremy Thomson, managing director, Mazda Motors UK, said: "The all-new Mazda CX-80 is a car that will allow us to challenge the established premium brands in the UK market with a luxury SUV that is the most spacious car in Mazda's European line-up.

"This opens the Mazda brand up to UK customers who need the space and practicality of a three-row large SUV, so we can't wait for the car to arrive with our dealers this autumn."
