The Mazda CX-60 e-Skyactiv D MHEV has been named Large SUV of the Year in the high-profile News UK Motor Awards. Judged by the motoring experts across The Sun, The Sunday Times, Driving.co.uk and Luxx Magazine, the 2023 Motor Awards winners were revealed in London recently.
Taking the coveted Large SUV of the Year accolade, the Mazda CX-60 diesel took the trophy in this highly competitive sector. Commenting on the award Rob Gill, The Sun Motors Editor, said: “the Mazda CX-60 is our stand-out winner as Large SUV of the Year as it really does everything for everybody. Practical, stylish, packed with all the tech and luxuries we love as standard, and powered by the cleanest and most efficient diesel engine in the world. Anyone who tows anything or travels big miles every week to earn a crust, needs a CX-60 in their life. It’s as simple as that.”
Launched in the UK in March this year, the all-new in-line six-cylinder 3.3-litre e-Skyactiv D diesel powered CX-60 joined the plug-in hybrid CX-60, which features a Skyactiv-G 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with a 129kW electric motor and a 17.8 kWh high-capacity battery – in the CX-60 line-up.
Offered in three highly specified model grades: Exclusive-Line, Homura and Takumi, the imposing strength of the Mazda CX-60’s beautiful and dynamic styling conveys the intelligence and elegance of the latest developments in Kodo design woven into the toughness of the striking front-engine, rear-wheel drive SUV architecture.
The Mazda CX-60 e-Skyactiv D MHEV’s success in the 2023 Motor Awards follows on from it being named Car of the Year and Best Large SUV in the 2023 Diesel Car Magazine Awards.
