Look at the 2025 Mazda CX-70! Two Rows. Big Space.

Mazda built its latest SUV, the Mazda CX-70, on the same large platform as the CX-90. It offers more space for fewer passengers.

Mazda lifted the covers off its latest SUV, the Mazda CX-70. It looks just like its platform sharing stablemate, the three-row Mazda CX-90, the brand’s flagship. Mazda kept details scarce. Things like horsepower figures as well as vehicle exterior and interior dimensions. But to the naked eye, its hard not to think the CX-70 effectively mirrors the Mazda CX-90.

The Japanese brand did state that you choose between a turbocharged, 3.3-liter inline-six power plant and a plug-in hybrid utilizing a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. Both of these options also exist on the CX-90.

Take a Look Inside

While the two crossovers have a lot in common, plenty of differences do present themselves, mainly inside. Offering only two rows in a three-row crossover package affords plenty of space and comfort for every occupant, with lots of extra room for gear behind them.

The second row offers plenty of leg, knee, hip, elbow, and shoulder room. As long as only two people occupy that row, both should feel free to stretch their legs. Furthermore, Mazda mounted the seat bottoms nice and high to provide plenty of thigh support too.

In Lieu of a third row, Mazda incorporated three separate under floor storage spaces to stow extra gear. Tucked safely away from prying eyes, it’s a nice way to store valuables. Or simply keep things from sliding around the storage area.

Cargo space is ample. With the third row folded, the Mazda CX-90 provides well over 40 cubic feet of space behind the second row. Assuming the CX-70 matches the CX-90’s dimensions, than it offers at least as much space.

I did get a chance to take a close look at the all new Mazda SUV and put together a video detailing what’s inside, outside, and under the hood. It’s below.

If you’d rather continue to read, I also wrote about the new Mazda CX-70 for Gear Junkie and have a link to that story right here.

In Conclusion

Mazda pulled off something clever here. With its two larger SUVs, you have two versions of the same vehicle to suit different customers tastes. Have a family to haul around and keep happy? Mazda CX-90 provides all your people carrying needs. Empty nester or well to do couple with no kids, but lots of stuff? The CX-70 fits the bill.

The Mazda CX-70 is sharp, ergonomically sensible, spatially generous, and intelligent in its powertrain choices. When it comes to larger SUVs, I think Mazda is two for two.

Another large SUV that worth checking out is the popular Kia Telluride.
