Beyond the CX-50, Mazda will expand its luxury SUV range in 2022 with a new three-row SUV replacing the CX-8 possibly called the CX-70. Topping the range will be a new flagship CX-90 seven-seat SUV replacing the CX-9, while the CX-3 will be replaced by a small SUV called the CX-10.
Mazda is also reportedly plotting a larger coupe SUV called either the CX-40 or CX-60 to take on the BMW X6, but the priority is to replace its core model lineup. “It will be about replacing the existing line-up, making sure they are working, making sure there is a viable return on investment, and also making sure that the new models are firing in the US,” said a Mazda insider. “Once we do that, we can then look at the niche models.”
After the CX-50, the replacement for the discontinued Mazda 6 will utilize Mazda’s FR Large Architecture. Previewed by the stunning Vision Concept, the new Mazda 6 is expected to be called the Mazda 60 and launch in 2022.
