Pulling its weight – why the all-new Mazda CX-60 is the leader of the pack when it comes to towing

At Johnsons, we were excited to launch the all-new Mazda CX-60 – the marque’s first plug-in hybrid – earlier this autumn. The new flagship model is exquisitely designed inside and out, offers room for all the family, and boasts heaps of practicality. Notably, its towing capacity of 2,500kg – which is class-leading, and a rare feature for a plug-in hybrid.

Your car is an important part of your lifestyle, and, if you’re an adventurous type, the large stance, refined traction and confident handling of the CX-60 offers an unerringly stable drive when you hitch up a caravan or trailer. Staycations have become increasingly popular in recent years, and the CX-60 will help the whole family embrace their adventurous side, transporting your caravan with total confidence.

With all-wheel drive, its power and versatility make the CX-60 perfect for open-road adventures. The model also sees the debut of Mazda’s new eight-speed automatic transmission for smoother acceleration on every drive – perfect for towing. What’s more, Mi-DRIVE gives you the ability to switch between five distinct driving modes – including a dedicated towing mode. This optimises grip, traction, performance, handling and safety to guarantee sure-footed towing in any driving environment.

But that’s not all that wows about the all-new CX-60. An SUV like no other, this game-changing SUV offers incomparable style, fierce power and outstanding quality as standard. The pinnacle of Japanese craftsmanship, Mazda’s master craftsmen have shaped the flowing lines by hand, achieving the perfect balance of refinement and aerodynamics.

The innovative powertrain allows you to travel confidently down city streets, country roads and motorways. The powerful 2.5-litre petrol engine offers an impressive driving performance with 327PS. Plus, thanks to the electric motor and a battery, you can enjoy up to 39 miles of pure electric driving when in Normal or EV mode.
