2025 Mazda CX-70: An Environmentally Friendly Full-Size SUV

July 7th, 2023 by

The 2025 Mazda CX-70 will fill a new large-bodied niche in the company’s lineup. The team at Capistrano Mazda in San Juan Capistrano, California, is here to share all the details we know and a few of the juicier rumors related to this fantastic upcoming SUV.

Exterior Styling and Body Measurements2025 Mazda CX-70

The 2025 Mazda CX-70 will sit neatly between the popular CX-50 and the exceptional CX-90. As mentioned, the manufacturer has yet to release the final version of the exterior style for this potent, extremely efficient, and environmentally friendly SUV. That said, we’ve had access to a 3D rendering of the model year, though we expect some details will vary between what we’ve seen and the final product.

The large-bodied SUV will have exceptionally fluid-looking body lines along its flanks, abandoning traditional hard lines in favor of a shape that warps the light as it strikes the paneling. This interesting wavy side paneling will give way to a smoother front end, featuring a checked chevron-shaped grille and a hood with thin body lines toward its center and thicker ones nearer its sides.

The front end will also feature a dynamic-looking set of four headlight units wrapped in daytime running lights and flanked by turn signal units. The front bumper will be dual-tone, with a black lower section and a body-colored upper section, and the wheel wells will extend outward from the body innovatively and creatively, granting superior shielding to the CX-70’s tires.

The body will measure 200.8 inches in length, 84.9 inches in width, and 68.7 inches in height, and it’ll have a wheelbase measuring 122.8 inches, a ground clearance of 8 inches, and a cargo area size of 15.9 cubic feet.

Engine and Battery Core Possibilities

Two engine core options will be available to power the impressive new 2025 Mazda CX-70. The first is an innovative longitudinal six-cylinder engine. This engine format improves handling responsiveness and helps balance the weight distribution of the SUV fore and aft. The engine will pair to a hybrid battery, but we don’t yet know the size of that battery or its charging speeds.

The engine core will probably be a 3.3-liter turbo version providing around 340 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. A plug-in version featuring a full electric core will also be available. This new plug-in version will be far more efficient than the hybrid version but at the cost of a little bit of horsepower.

The plug-in core will likely provide 323 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, and the hybrid version of the engine core should have an all-electric range of 39 miles or more. The amount of money saved by the plug-in core is sure to make the minute power shortfall meaningless to the vast majority of seasoned drivers.

Rear-wheel drive will be standard for both versions of the 2023 Mazda CX-70, but all-wheel drive will also be available. There is no certain word yet as to whether or not this drive option will be available at every trim level or only certain ones.

Interior Feature and Option Possibilities

The new line of CX-70 SUVs will seat up to five people. Wood panel interior accents, luxuriant nappa leather upholstery, and finely woven textiles will be part of the interior layout. We expect most of the wood to be part of the dashboard, creating a relaxing rustic feel.

The infotainment system for the 2025 Mazda CX-70 will likely be quite large, in the order of 12.3 inches or greater in size. There’s talk of a rotary knob set into the center console, and it will likely control aspects of the vehicle’s infotainment system. It’s also set to have expansive smart device mirroring and compatibility features, extensive customization options, and a battery of USB-C ports.

Another set of identical ports will be set back for rear-row use. Wireless charging units are also likely to be available, probably as optional additions. The speaker system on this grand SUV will be of the premium Bose variety, but we still have no information on how many speakers will feature.

Announced Safety Features

Mazda is well-known for its dedication to the safety of its vehicles’ drivers, passengers, and other drivers on the road alike. To maximize the safety of the 2025 Mazda CX-70, the company is set to include the i-ACTIVESENSE cluster of safety technologies. This safety feature cluster includes blind-spot monitoring, an adaptive frontal lighting system, a lane departure warning system, rear cross-traffic alert, smart brake support, forward obstruction warning, radar-based cruise control, a high-beam control system, and a smart city braking support system.

We’ll focus on the cruise control system in particular, as it’s one of the most advanced and well-understood safety features in the cluster. Standard cruise control merely allows you to set a speed, so you don’t need to keep your foot on the gas for the entire drive.

Distance-pacing cruise control uses what are usually lesser detection methods to maintain distance between your vehicle and others nearby. Radar-based cruise control, which will feature in the CX-70, is far better at managing the mode safely than versions that use more intermittent methods of detection. You can only engage the system at speeds at or greater than 30mph, but you can manually alter the distance between your vehicle and the one ahead with the press of a steering wheel button.
