Powertrain and Performance
Mazda’s new turbocharged 3.3-liter inline six-cylinder gasoline engine is augmented by a 48-volt mild hybrid system, providing superior environmental performance while still honoring the driver’s intentions. Additionally, the CX-90 offers a plug-in hybrid system e-SKYACTIV PHEV comprising a 2.5-liter in-line four-cylinder gasoline engine.
Combined with the new rear-biased AWD architecture, the CX-90 offers a powerful and efficient driving experience.
Comfort and Functionality
The CX-90 was designed to provide the ultimate comfort for all passengers, with an enlarged interior space that accommodates three passengers in the third row, complete with their own air conditioning vents. The enhanced configuration reinforces towing performance, enabling the driver and passengers to enjoy a variety of settings and experiences during the drive.
In addition, the inclusion of a See-Through View and a large active driving display helps support safe vehicle operation while enhancing the driver’s peace of mind.
Mazda’s Vision for the Future
As Mazda looks toward 2030, the company will continue to focus on its human-centered philosophy, creating more moving experiences for people to enjoy as they move about in their daily lives. The CX-90 is just the latest example of how Mazda delivers greater enjoyment to everyday life, uplifting and energizing people.
Mazda’s vision for 2030 is a commitment to sustainable driving. The company plans to electrify its entire lineup by 2030, with 95% of all vehicles expected to feature some form of electrification.

Dubbed Skyactiv-X, this new engine technology promises to deliver improved performance and reduced emissions.
But that’s not all. Mazda is also pushing the boundaries when it comes to design. The company’s Kodo design philosophy, which emphasizes the beauty of simplicity, is already a hallmark of its current lineup.
