Mazda CX-90 Teased Further
The Mazda CX-90 teasers continue. We talked specs yesterday, but a new teaser video from Mazda itself gives us a glimpse of the vehicle.
Yours truly is planning on flying to California next week to see the CX-90 in person. For now, we can gaze at the video and see the very familiar Mazda family design themes, including a sculpted front end and doors. The grille has staggered vertical bars. We can't see black body cladding in the teaser video, but there is some body-colored cladding around the fenders. The grille is surrounded by what appears to be chrome and there's a strip of chrome running end to end on the front fascia, as well as along the side of the vehicle.
There's no torque converter for the transmission, in a space-saving move. That's thanks in part to the integrated electric motor that allows this setup to be considered a "mild" hybrid. Mazda bigwig Jay Chen says in the video that saving this space allows for more steering angle and a "proper" sports-car suspension. Zoom-zoom, of course.
The full monty will be revealed on January 31st at noon Eastern.
