Mazda CX-80 makes European debut with PHEV and diesel mild hybrid options

Mazda has introduced the three-row Mazda CX-80 in Europe. Following the launch of the CX-60, the all-new Mazda CX-80 is the second of two new models for Europe from the company’s Large Product group. It is the most spacious car in Mazda’s European line-up and will become the new flagship for Mazda in the region.


At almost five meters long and with a wheelbase of more than three meters, the all-new Mazda CX-80 is longer, higher, and has a significantly longer wheelbase than the popular CX-60. In conjunction with two-fold-flat third row seats, the CX-80 will be available with a choice of three second-row configurations, including the choice of two separate captain seats combined with either a center console or a walk through to the third row.

The all-new Mazda CX-80 includes three new features: a new Alexa in-car voice control; a new hybrid navigation system combining the advantages of both offline and online services; and a new Trailer Hitch View which uses the center display and advanced graphics to help position the vehicle relative to a trailer.

The CX-80 is available with a choice of two powertrains at launch: an e-Skyactiv PHEV, combining a four-cylinder gasoline engine and an electric motor; and an e-Skyactiv D, in-line six-cylinder diesel unit featuring Mazda’s M Hybrid Boost 48V mild hybrid system.

The e-Skyactiv PHEV has a total system output of 327 PS/241 kW and 500 N·m of torque. It accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 6.8 seconds, has a top speed of 195 km/h, and offers 60 km of all-electric driving. It returns a WLTP average fuel consumption of 1.6 l/100 km and CO2 emissions of 36 g/km.

The e-Skyactiv D generates 254 PS, accelerating from 0-100 km/h in 8.4 seconds and on to a maximum speed of 219 km/h. WLTP average fuel consumption is 5.7-5.8 l/100 km and CO2 emissions 148-151 g/km.

Both powerplants are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and Mazda’s i-Activ All-Wheel Drive system. Mazda Intelligent Drive Select (Mi-Drive) also offers a choice of four drive modes (plus EV mode for the PHEV) as already introduced in the CX-60.

The CX-80’s platform features double wishbone front and multi-link rear suspension to ensure high levels of ride comfort, a stable posture and smooth body control. Its rear-biased, permanent all-wheel drive system combines the stability and traction of AWD with the neutral cornering characteristics of a rear-wheel drive set-up. The all-new Mazda CX-80 also has towing capacity of 2,500 kg.

The CX-80’s range of advanced i-Activsense driver assistance systems targets a Euro NCAP 5-star safety rating. New safety features debuting in the CX-80 include Cruising & Traffic Support (CTS) with new Unresponsive Driver Support; Smart Brake Support (SBS) with new Head-on collision mitigation; and Emergency Lane Keeping (ELK) with new Head-on traffic avoidance assist.

Presales for the all-new Mazda CX-80 will start in May, and the car will be on sale in dealerships from Autumn 2024.
