ROME – Long life for the diesel engine. The exception, however, is excellent, clean, brilliant and low consumption. Therefore, after the successful sales of the new plug-in hybrid CX-60 (Phev) SUV, Mazda is sending the first diesel units to Europe, which will be launched on the Italian market in January with a special promotion. The cars start with the 3.3-liter in-line six-cylinder e-Skyactiv D diesel unit, which is unique for its advanced and innovative combustion technology that makes it one of the cleanest diesel engines in the world. The power unit was designed with the name “right size”, and optimized displacement to improve fuel efficiency and power.
In our market, the six-cylinder e-Skyactiv D engine of 3,283 cc, installed long, is available in two power levels: 200 Hp with rear-wheel drive, and 249 Hp with all-wheel drive i- Activ Awd, both with 8-speed automatic. The new diesel engine, thanks to the 48 Volt M Hybrid Boost system, is able to combine high power with low fuel consumption.
The benefits were also achieved due to the adoption of an innovative combustion technology called “Ignition-controlled for the mixed compression section” (Dcpci) which further improves the efficiency of the engine, production and consumption, reaching, according to the manufacturer, a thermal efficiency of more than . 40%. In practice, these two technologies, together with the six-row architecture, give the Mazda CX-60 a powerful feeling, low fuel consumption and emissions, and high ride comfort.

In the 200 HP variant, on the other hand, average fuel consumption is 4.9 l/100 km and CO2 emissions of 127 g/km (Wltp cycle). Finally, it should be noted that to celebrate the arrival of the first diesel units in Mazda dealerships, the CX-60 will be accompanied, until January 31, by the “Première Choice” promotion and the “Convenience & Sound Pack” package worth 2,650. euros and the first three coupons for scheduled maintenance free of charge.
