Mazda has confirmed that it will be introducing six new SUVs to its line-up from 2022. The expansion comes as a response to the success it has seen with its current high-riding offerings.
Mazda South Africa confirms that the upcoming CX-50 is unlikely to arrive here since it is specific to the North American market but there is a strong possibility that the planned CX-60, CX70, CX80 and CX-90 will be worked into our market. The official line-up will be confirmed closer to the launch date.
Earlier this year, Mazda South Africa announced that an updated CX-5 would be arriving with a further design evolution and several notable revisions. This SUV will continue to form part of the Japanese brand’s SUV offering in SA.
Mazda says its bespoke approach towards carbon neutrality and electrification of powertrains takes market specific needs, the level of infrastructure development and legal frameworks of different global markets into account. This allows the local arm to introduce these new products to our customers as our market itself moves toward carbon neutrality and electrification.
Internal combustion engines, that currently power the large majority of vehicles sold in South Africa, will continue to be offered. In parallel, it will continuously evaluate alternative powertrains and will communicate confirmed details closer to the launch time.
Mazda Southern Africa says it efforts to build a strong brand with a consistent improvement of the brand value through investment in product, technologies and customer experience all of which are based on a unique interpretation of our Japanese premium positioning.
