New 2024 Mazda CX-90 (Overview). 2024 Mazda CX-90 SUV First Look: Going Upmarket.
The new CX-90 looks classy and sophisticated, and offers inline-six and plug-in hybrid engines.
In recent years Mazda has attempted to move upmarket, placing itself between mainstream and luxury automakers. Whether or not that mission is fully baked, the new 2024 Mazda CX-90 is the latest Mazda vehicle to push the idea, as it brings new powertrains and an upscale design. The 2024 CX-90 SUV will replace the CX-9 when it goes on sale this spring, and it will become Mazda’s flagship as it expands its SUV lineup.
All About The Proportions
The 2024 Mazda CX-90’s profile view is its best angle. With its long wheelbase and rear-drive layout, the three-row SUV stands out from others in the segment, and its subtle character lines and thick D-pillar provide an elegant look. Its upright grille is characterized by vertical slats that replace the old honeycomb design from previous Mazdas, and its traditional chrome surround thickens as it meets the headlights, which are now smaller and adopt a squarish shape. Out back, the 2024 CX-90 gets a rounded shape underlined by the thick D-pillars and rear-drive proportions (the platform is built as rear-drive capable, but all CX-90s will be all-wheel drive), while its taillights wrap around the corners to meet Mazda’s logo on the tailgate. There are no strong character lines or sharp edges; the clever design is bold and leaps forward compared to the outgoing CX-9.
