Mazda stated in the past that it wasn’t going to treat the 2024 Mazda CX-90 like any other vehicle launch, and it gave us a slice of how committed it was when the company invited select members of the media (us included) to see the 2024 Mazda CX-90 ahead of its official debut a few weeks ago. Mazda is not letting its foot off the gas and has officially confirmed the pricing and package structure for the CX-90, with the base model starting at $40,970 (all pricing includes the $1,375 destination charge).
Choice Defines The CX-90 Buying Experience
The 2024 Mazda CX-90 might be the flagship of Mazda’s SUV lineup, but that doesn’t mean that Mazda has taken the easy route to sales success, with the company announcing that eleven different versions of the CX-90 will be available for buyers when the SUV makes its way to dealerships this spring. The CX-90 Turbo family is split into two distinct branches, with the Turbo Select as the base model. The Turbo Select uses a 3.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 280 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque. Those figures are identical to the international market CX-60, and the CX-90 marks the first time that an inline-six-powered Mazda will be sold in the U.S. market. The SUV’s equipment roster climbs as you reach the Preferred and Preferred Plus models, with the Premium and Premium Plus models making you feel like you stepped inside a BMW or Audi product.
The Turbo S sub-branch is where you’ll find the 340-hp version of the 3.3-liter inline-six and even more luxury with goodies such as Nappa Leather, heated quad captains chairs, a 12.5-inch infotainment system, and more. However, this extra layer of luxury will make you pay accordingly with a range-topping Turbo S starting at $61,325. Meanwhile, the CX-90 plug-in hybrid helps push Mazda in a greener direction, with these models starting at $48,820. It swaps out the inline-six for a naturally aspirated four-cylinder paired with an electric motor and a 17.8 kWh battery pack. Horsepower dips to 323 hp, but the difference between the PHEV engine and the detuned 3.3-liter inline-six is only marginal, and look for the PHEV to deliver the goods still when it comes to fuel economy and performance. The complete pricing ladder can be seen below.
- Select: $40,970
- Preferred: $44,820
- Preferred Plus: $47,275
- Premium: $50,275
- Premium Plus: $54,325
- S: $53,120
- S Premium: $57,825
- S Premium Plus: $61,325
- Preferred: $48,820
- Premium: $54,275
- Premium Plus: $58,325
Buyers can also expect an impressive amount of standard equipment, including LED lighting, all-wheel drive, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, heated steering wheel and seats, and even automatic emergency braking.
When Can I Buy One?
Look for the 2024 Mazda CX-90 to go on sale this spring; when it does, the CX-90 will have a large pool of rivals to contend with, including some from BMW, Mercedes, and Audi. That said, Mazda is confident that the CX-90 will rise above these benchmarks, and we look forward to finding out for ourselves soon.
