Mazda has released another teaser for its upcoming luxury SUV, the CX-90. This time the focus is on the interior. From what we can see, his rear wheel drive 3 train with inline 6 power looks like a gorgeous place to drive.
This is the latest work in Mazda’s “unboxing video” series, hosted by actor Hiroyuki Sanada. Of course, since this is a teaser, most of the shots feature extreme close-ups.
For example, a perforated leather seat insert is more than just a strip of black fabric. You can see through the gray, reminiscent of the textiles used in nice suits. The dashboard and door panels appear to be covered in a wool-like fabric.The adjacent Brightwork is textured with lines rather than flats. The stitching on the dashboard is not a standard car pattern, but a Japanese paper binding. Everything feels luxurious.
Mazda designer Yasuki Tsuchida also introduced a new exterior color, Artisan Red. It’s much darker than Mazda’s signature Soul Red we know, with black mixed in.
A separate peek at the center stack reveals the physical button array, which is a plus for those who dislike touchscreens. Operated by touch or the command knob on the center console. The traditional PRNDL gear selector remains. Thankfully it hasn’t been replaced by an array of buttons.
The CX-90 has been teased for a while, and this should be the last time. The global rollout will take place next Monday, January 31st.
All of this is combined with Mazda’s new 3.3-liter Turbo Straight Six for a very neat package that produces 340 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque.
