About the Car

2025 Mazda CX-80 Artisan Red

The all-new Mazda CX-80 is a new flagship model for Mazda, created to challenge the established premium brands in the European market.

Mazda is committed to a multi-solution approach to sustainable mobility and the principal of the right solution at the right time. To that end, the company has developed three distinct product lines: a Small Product Group, based on its transverse layout Skyactiv Multi-Solution Scalable Architecture; a Large Product Group, featuring its longitudinal layout Skyactiv Multi-Solution Scalable Architecture; and its EV Models, underpinned by Mazda's Skyactiv EV Scalable Architecture.

Following the launch of the CX-60, the all-new Mazda CX-80 is the second of two new models for Europe from the company's Large Product Group. Featuring three-row seating, it is the most spacious car in Mazda's European line-up.

Comfortable, versatile and Crafted in Japan, the all-new Mazda CX-80 combines progressive design anchored in Japanese aesthetics with outstanding on-board accommodation flexibility, superior technology and features common to premium SUVs in this segment, and the signature driving performance delivered by every Mazda.

DESIGN

In its latest evolution, Mazda's unique Kodo - Soul of Motion - design retains its vitality, but now targets greater styling prestige through the elegance and purity of a minimalist Japanese aesthetic which removes all unnecessary elements.

Inspired by the purest traditions of Japanese art, the beauty of space between objects and the artistic manipulation of light, the foundation of Mazda elegance relies on the uniquely hands-on approach of the company's designers and craftsmen.

Combining entirely human-centric design and engineering with the dedication and precision that is the hallmark of master craftsmanship, their goal is to produce cars that could only have been Crafted in Japan.

The all-new Mazda CX-80 is a three-row SUV with a premium presence, expressing richness and elegance in a durable SUV that reflects its 'Graceful Toughness' design concept. The body size was designed out of consideration for easy manoeuvring in daily driving and parking situations.

EXTERIOR DESIGN

Whilst the exterior of the two-row CX-60 expresses the toughness and ruggedness of a midsized SUV as well as the intelligence and elegance of KODO design, the Mazda CX-80 aims higher. The design approach, which could be described as architectural, expresses calmness and richness, clearly emphasising the premium quality space of the three-row seating layout whilst maintaining the elegance typical of any Mazda SUV.

The CX-80's imposing face and long nose highlight the front-engine, rear-wheel drive architecture of the new SUV, its dynamic and imposing grille and headlamp design instantly identifying it as the latest flagship of the Mazda model range.

To the side, an expression of elegance has been refined by taking full advantage of the length of the nose and cabin, by trimming away any extraneous elements and focusing on the side glazing. Entirely surrounding the glazing, the chrome mouldings of the extended side windows are thicker and straighter at the D pillar, emphasising the presence of a third seating tier. The variation of this chrome trim's shape creates a jewel-like, three-dimensional effect that looks as though it has been milled from solid metal.

The addition of seamlessly integrated roof rails further reinforces the length of the three-tier cabin. In addition, the grey metallic paint colour of the 20-inch machined alloy wheels softens the contrast between the paint and machined metal surfaces for a refined, dignified appearance.

From the rear, the width of Mazda CX-80 is reinforced by the absence of an exhaust garnish - the exhaust pipe hidden behind the bumper for a cleaner, more elegant appearance.

As with the CX-60, the rear lighting signature adopts an L-shaped design to match that of the front lamp clusters. The widely spread consecutive horizontal styling creating a lighting signature appropriate to a premium class vehicle.

Artisan Red and new Melting Copper signature body colours have been added to CX-80's range of exterior colour choices. Artisan Red - an example of Mazda's Takuminuri painting technology - evokes even deeper refinement than Soul Red Crystal, whilst Melting Copper suggests light sandblasting to the surface of copper than has been melted and hardened again.

In all, a choice of nine body colours are available: Jet Black, Deep Crystal Blue, Platinum Quartz, Arctic White, Rhodium White, Machine Grey, Soul Red Crystal, Artisan Red and Melting Copper.

INTERIOR DESIGN

Similar to that of the CX-60, the wide instrument panel and side air vents that feed into the door trim reinforce the width and spaciousness of the interior.

The extra-thick console has a powerful shape that runs front to back through the space, expressing both structural strength and the presence of the powertrain layout beneath, with an eight-speed automatic transmission and a longitudinally mounted engine ahead of it.

The rear of the console is equipped with USB ports and heater controls to enhance rear seat comfort. The rear seat console has evolved into a more integrated shape, while adding metallic trim that matches the front console and door trim to create a unified space.

As an expression of Japanese premium quality, the interior adopts two uniquely Japanese design concepts: Kaicho, or 'harmony', which combines a mix of premium materials such as real maple wood, Nappa leather and chrome detailing to create points of contrast that are in perfect harmony; and Hacho, or 'broken rhythm', here exemplified by sophisticated Musubu stitching which - inspired by the centuries old art of Japanese knot tying - highlights the refined beauty of craftsmanship and adds visual depth to the interior.

By weaving the dynamism of light and a sense of life in nature intro the orderly, high quality space, the entire cabin expresses the Japanese aesthetic of 'beauty of tone'. White ambient lighting on the front and rear door trim brings out the best of the colour and texture of the interior finishes.

PACKAGING AND UTILITY

Designed out of consideration for easy manoeuvring in daily driving and parking situations yet large enough to accommodate seven occupants in comfort, the all-new Mazda CX-80 is 4,995 mm long, 1,890 mm wide, 1,710 mm high, and has a 3,120 mm wheelbase.

It is 250 mm longer and 24 mm higher than the CX-60, with a 250 mm longer wheelbase, and has a turning circle of 5.8 metres.

THREE-TIER SEATING

The all-new Mazda CX-80 may be equipped with a choice of three second row seating configurations: a three-person bench seat - giving a seven-seat capacity, two captain's seats separated by a walk through space - for a total of six seats, and two captain's seats with a middle console - again offering a six-seat layout.

Unlike that of the CX-60 (which has a fixed base and a choice of either 24 or 28 degrees seat back recline angle), the CX-80's second row bench has both a sliding range of 120 mm and a fully variable seat recline range of between 15-33 degrees.

Second row shoulder room is now 1,476 mm (35 mm more than the CX-60), and the second row headroom is 996 mm (12 mm more than the CX-60). The third row seating has been designed to accommodate occupants up to 1,700 mm in height.

Access to the third row seating is made comfortable by a large door opening height, a second row one-touch walk-in function, a wide, flat step floor and a large hand grip built into the side trim recess.

LOADSPACE

With the third row seats in place, loadspace capacity including under-floor storage is 258 litres. This rises to 687 litres with the third row folded flat, 1,221 litres with the second row folded flat, and 1,971 litres to the ceiling. The height difference between loadspace floor and the tailgate sill has been minimised for easier loading, and irregularities in the walls have been removed to offer a cleaner cargo bay shape.

The all-new Mazda CX-80 may also be equipped with an optional, hands-free powered tailgate. Activated by a sensor under the rear bumper, the tailgate can be both opened and closed by users even when both hands are full.

DRIVING POSITION

Several design features make it easy for CX-80 drivers to achieve their preferred driving environment. The seats are designed to greatly reduce unpleasant swaying and stabilize occupants' heads. The steering wheel offers a 45mm rake and 70mm reach adjustment range. The steering wheel and pedal layout allows the driver to operate the car with minimal muscle force and less straining. Clear visibility reduces the vehicle's invisible area, making it easier for drivers to get a feel for the size and position of their car. And the Driver Personalisation System makes automatic adjustments to set and restore the ideal position for each driver.

DRIVER PERSONALISATION SYSTEM

First featured in the CX-60, the Mazda CX-80's Driver Personalisation System comprises three functions; an automatic driving position guide; automatic setting restoration; and ingress/egress assistance.

The automatic driving position guide uses a camera to detect the position of the driver's eyes and input of the driver's height to estimate their physique, then automatically adjusts the seat, steering wheel, Active Driving Display (head-up display) and door mirrors to match the driver's eye position.

Automatic setting restoration uses facial recognition and data on various adjustments and settings stored in the vehicle to automatically restore the settings for each driver. The system can store settings for up to six people, plus guests.

In addition, the ingress/egress assistance function makes it easier for the driver to get in and out of the car by sliding the steering wheel and seat out of the way.

VISIBILITY

The Mazda CX-80's seating is set high to secure a clear and unobstructed view, making it easy for the driver to gain a clear sense of the vehicle's extremities and place it accurately on the road.

Both the Mazda CX-80's bonnet's forward, and diagonal forward visibility thresholds have been made as short as possible to make it easier for the driver to identify the leading edge of the vehicle. The base of the A pillar has been given a large, curved shape to make it easier to identify children with a target height of one metre at intersections. In addition, the CX-80 offers a rearward field of view of up to 10 metres behind the car and up to 1000 mm off the ground, making it easier for drivers to see a vehicle approaching from behind.

HUMAN MACHINE INTERFACE (HMI)

As in the CX-60, the driver's cockpit area features three main instrument displays: a full TFT-LCD driver's instrument cluster, a 12.3-inch infotainment centre display and a large window Active Driving Display.

The driver's instrument binnacle features a 12.3-inch display. In addition to driving assist modes and warning displays, it also supports the Driver Personalisation System. In addition, the dynamic start-up and Mi-Drive mode displays enhance safety and security through improved visibility.

The large Active driving Display reduces unnecessary eye movement, provides the driver with essential information in an easy-to-understand manner, and heightens the sense of security while driving.

SEE-THROUGH VIEW AND TRAILER HITCH VIEW

The CX-80 is equipped with Mazda's 360° View Monitor with See-through View technology which makes navigating city streets and narrow spaces less stressful, even when driving a large vehicle like the CX-80. See-through View projects a large image of the area ahead of the vehicle and around the tires in the direction of travel on the centre display, enabling drivers to check these areas thoroughly.

It allows the driver to see the direction of travel and the range of obstacles they might possibly strike when fully turning the steering wheel, as if the image were seen from inside the vehicle. This helps to identify objects the vehicle might come into contact with when starting off or slowing down in tight spaces, such as parking lots or narrow alleys. In addition, See-through View shows the outline of the car's body, making it easier to understand the orientation of the car in relation to the obstacles and spaces around it.

Trailer Hitch View

Making its debut in the all-new Mazda CX-80, Trailer Hitch View is integral to the See-through View system. This function makes it easy to attach a trailer without the help of another person. Using the rear view camera, Trailer Hitch View brings up lines on the centre display that run from the CX-80 tow hitch to the centre of the trailer, making it easier to position the vehicle relative to the trailer.

Then, once the vehicle is within a meter of the trailer connector, users have the option of manually selecting the zoom in icon on the display, making it easy to attach a trailer to the vehicle without the help of another person.

Air-conditioning

The CX-80 is equipped, as standard, with air conditioning vents for the third row seats. Rear seat air-conditioning controls allow passengers in the second row to set their desired temperature, adjust the air outlets and control air flow volume. Rear seat air-conditioning can also be set from the front climate control panel.

The PHEV model also features a pre-cooling and pre-heating system that allows the cabin temperature to be adjusted using the power of the lithium battery, without running the engine. Via the MyMazda App, the air-conditioning may be set in advance to provide a comfortable cabin when the driver gets in the car.

USBs and AC/DC Power Supplies

Each of the CX-80's three seating rows is equipped with USB-C ports. On all CX-80 versions, the centre console is fitted with a 15 W wireless smartphone charger, and a 150 W power supply at the rear of the console. 150 W power can be supplied whilst driving, and may be used, for instance, to charge the battery of an electric bicycle. The loadspace is further equipped with a 12 V DC power outlet.

In addition, e-Skyactiv PHEV models may also equipped with an optional, 1500 W AC power supply. The electricity stored in the battery may be used in a wide range of situations - even running electrical appliances which consume large amounts of electricity - without worry over the remaining battery power.

Comfort and Convenience

Ambient illumination is used for the interior lighting to create a premium quality atmosphere. The door trim centre and foot lamps emit a line of luminescence, and LED lighting has been added to the door courtesy lamps and inside both the console and glove box. A pair of loadspace lamps improve nighttime visibility and ease of use.

The Mazda CX-80 may be equipped with a large, 950 mm wide and 1,021 mm long panoramic sunroof featuring an electric slide and tilt mechanism, giving the cabin a bright, open feeling and an extended view. The sides of the sunroof are reinforced between the B pillars to reduce weight and improve side impact protection.

For the first time on a Mazda in Europe, integral rear door sunshades are also available.

MAZDA CONNECT WITH IN-VEHICLE CONNECTIVITY

The Mazda CX-80 features the latest version of Mazda Connect, which offers users a fast start up, high quality image and sound, and a free word search function.

The system supports wireless Apple CarPlay® and wireless Android Auto™, as standard, to ensure a convenient user experience with smart phone integration.

Hybrid Navigation

The all-new Mazda CX-80's hybrid navigation system combines the benefits of both off-line and on-line navigation. On-line functions are available for MyMazda App users that have enrolled for connected vehicle services. Off-line functions are available for all owners.

Hybrid Navigation makes the latest navigation-related data - including locations, maps and traffic information - available at all times. Amongst the advantages of Hybrid Navigation are increased contents and better search results, optimised route search and ETA with increased accuracy, and frequent automatic updates with more detailed and accurate information.

Alexa Voice Control

The all-new Mazda CX-80 features Alexa for in-car voice control. Alexa uses cloud-based voice recognition, which has evolved to support natural language instead of conventional fixed commands. Voice commands and recognition accuracy are updated daily, and the user has no need to memorise commands.

Speaking English, German, French, Italian or Spanish, the driver is now able to simply talk to Alexa to play music, check the weather, set a destination, control the air-conditioning, seat heating and cooling, and more, whilst keeping both hands on the wheel.

Users can access new features through their Amazon Alexa account, including third party apps such as Spotify and Amazon Music. Users can also add Alexa Skills to their account, which they can then access via the vehicle; for example, Skills for internet radio, the weather and smart home.

MyMazda App

The latest MyMazda App is available for free from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. It introduces Connected Services across Europe and features numerous functions including: Vehicle Finder, Remote Door Locking and open door notification, a Vehicle Health Report, service history and scheduled maintenance notification and booking, a Roadside Assistance function, and a theft alert function with Security Alert.

The CX-80 introduces a new function to the MyMazda App - Remote Headlights: Accessed on a smartphone or Apple watch via the app's home screen or the map, this function is used to remote flash the vehicle's headlights to give owners the exact location of the parked car.

To use the MyMazda App, customers must first download the app and then register. They can then add their car to the app and enrol with Connected Services. Primary drivers of the vehicle can also invite secondary drivers to the car, who will then also have access to connected vehicle functions. The functions available to the second driver can be chosen by the main driver.

AUDIO SYSTEMS

The all-new Mazda CX-80 features an enhanced version of the Mazda Harmonic Acoustics audio system first seen in the CX-60. The size of the front cowl side woofers has been increased from 3 litres to 4.8 litres to deliver a greater bass dynamic range and higher quality sound reproduction.

The high quality system amplifier is located under the Mazda CX-80's right front seat. It features multiple, high-end audio technologies including a stable power supply, the use of a custom-made capacitor that's unique to Mazda, and phoneme tuning that reproduces subtle and delicate sounds to playback as much audio information as possible.

Audio quality is further enhanced by the use of MSR NR (Master Sound Revive Noise Reduction) technology, which removes shot noise included in digital audio sources such as CDs - a first ever on genuine car audio.

The Mazda CX-80 may also be equipped with a Bose premium sound system. The 12-speaker system adds a centre speaker and subwoofer. The BassMatch cowl-side enclosures utilise perfect 'drive points' to deliver tighter, more powerful bass while reducing 'door buzz'. Combined with the rear bass enclosure and tuning, the overall dynamic range, clarity and image width of the sound system is enhanced.

GRADE STRUCTURE

The all-new Mazda CX-80 is available in a choice of five model grades: Exclusive-line, Homura, Takumi, Homura Plus and Takumi Plus.

All model grades are available with a seven-seat interior layout which includes a three-seat second row bench. The Homura and Homura Plus grade interiors may also be equipped with a six-seat format including two second row captain's seats with a walk through space. And the Takumi Plus grade can additionally be ordered with a six-seat format featuring two second row captain's seats separated by a centre console.

Homura and Takumi grades are fitted, as standard, with Comfort for Exclusive-line and Driver Assistance for Exclusive-line packs. Homura Plus and Takumi Plus grades benefit from Convenience & Sound and Panoramic sunroof packs as standard.

Exclusive-line features a piano Black grille and glazing surrounds, and 20-inch alloy wheels. The optional Black leather interior (cloth upholstery standard) features a dashboard finished in cordovan-look vinyl with titanium piping and stitching, and titanium coloured seat centre panel trim and stitching.

Takumi features an exclusive front bumper design, a piano Black grille, bright metal front wing and side signatures and glazing surrounds, and 20-inch, Grey with machined accent alloy wheels. The White Nappa leather upholstered interior combines maple wood trim with Japanese 'hanging stitching' seams which create spaces between the trim fabrics revealing a glimpse of the material beneath.

Homura features a uniform exterior body colour and an exclusive front bumper design. The exterior trim combines a piano Black honeycomb grille with jet Black wing and side signature plating, and all-Black door mirrors, and aerodynamic 20-inch alloy wheels.

Upgraded from that of the CX-60 Homura, the Black interior with black Nappa leather upholstery creates a more driving-focused environment. The dashboard mid-panel is finished in Black Cordovan-like vinyl leather with stitching and piping. Various key panels such as the centre console are trimmed in a hair-line Gun Metal finish. The cabin ceiling is trimmed in Black cloth, and the D pillar and grab rail are also finished in Black.

POWERTRAINS

The choice of powertrains for the all-new Mazda CX-80 exemplifies Mazda's 'Multi-Solution Approach'. The company's strategy is to offer different products and technologies - including a wide range of electrified powertrains - that best suit the local market and society's demand for sustainability.

The all-new Mazda CX-80 adopts Mazda's Skyactiv Multi-Solution Scalable Architecture for its longitudinal power units.

This longitudinal powertrain format offers many advantages, including the ability to mount motors and batteries of different sizes in the same layout for both the Mazda M Hybrid Boost vehicles and PHEV versions, and the facility to place the motor on the same axis as the engine and transmission.

There are two engines in the Mazda CX-80 powertrain line-up: a PHEV featuring a 2.5 litre, four-cylinder e-Skyactiv G petrol unit with electrification technology, and a straight-six 3.3 litre e-Skyactiv D diesel unit incorporating M Hybrid Boost, Mazda's 48V mild hybrid system.

Both powerplants are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and Mazda's i-Activ All-Wheel Drive system. Mazda Intelligent Drive Select (Mi-Drive) offers a choice of four drive modes (plus EV mode for the PHEV).

2.5 LITRE E-SKYAC
