The cabin of the Mazda CX-60 expresses the strength of its front-engine, rear-wheel drive SUV architecture: the dashboard features continuous lines that run through the side air vents into the front door trims, while the wide centre console adds to the sense of space in the front.

As ever with Mazda, a superb driving position that delivers comfort and a perfect connection with the car was part of development process. The CX-60 has an ergonomically excellent, natural and supportive driving position. The steering wheel has 45mm of rake and 70mm of reach adjustment, plus the CX-60 Homura and Takumi models are the first UK market Mazda cars with electric steering wheel adjustment.

Standard on Homura and Takumi grades (and optional on Exclusive-Line as part of the Comfort Pack) the CX-60 sees the debut of the new Mazda Driver Personalisation System. Using the camera inside the cabin it includes a function that automatically adjusts driver position based on the driver’s physique. It can also use facial recognition to automatically restore the driver’s chosen saved seating and other vehicle setting preferences each time they climb into the driver’s seat.

With new levels of cabin infotainment clarity, the Mazda CX-60 features a 12.3-inch colour central display screen, which is intuitively controlled via the rotary Multimedia Commander dial. Additionally all grades feature a windscreen projecting colour head up display, while the driver’s instrument binnacle display is a full colour TFT-LCD display.

All Mazda CX-60 models feature a frameless auto-dimming rear-view mirror, heated front seats, heated steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, keyless entry, four USB-C inputs  wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus connected services via the My Mazda App. Homura and Takumi models feature a 12-speaker BOSE audio system.

The Mazda CX-60 was developed with the mantra of Crafted in Japan and features new levels of premium materials, elegant design and technology. The flagship Takumi grade features materials such as maple wood, nappa leather combined with specially detailed instrument panel stitching and material inspired by Musubu – the art of Japanese binding.

In the flagship Takumi model the treatment of the maple wood trim reflects the Japanese aesthetic of Hacho – asymmetrical balance, or intentional unevenness. The woven fabrics’ diverse patterns and yarns respond sensitively to changes in light, and a Japanese stitching technique called Kakenui creates ‘hanging stitching’ seams with spaces between the trim fabrics revealing a glimpse of the material beneath.

From the Homura grade, the Mazda CX-60 features front seat ventilation, heated outer rear seats, ambient lighting, while a panoramic roof can be added as an option to both Homura and Takumi models. As part of the Convenience Pack (also available on Homura and Takumi) you can add privacy glass and a 360-degree view monitor with see through view.
