Mazda’s anticipated release of the CX-70, originally slated for the end of this year, has been postponed to the following year. Recent revelations stemming from filings with the California Air Resources Board (CARB), as reported by AutoGuide, strongly suggest that the upcoming two-row SUV will share powertrains with its larger counterpart, the CX-90.

The decision to equip the CX-70 with powertrains identical to those found in the CX-90 aligns with the fact that both models share the same platform. While the CX-90 accommodates seven passengers, the CX-70 will feature a more compact two-row layout.

The CX-90 currently boasts a 3.3-liter electrified inline-six engine that produces an impressive 340 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. Additionally, a 2.5-liter plug-in hybrid engine is available, delivering 323 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. Both engines come standard with all-wheel drive, and indications from CARB documents suggest a similar configuration for the CX-70.

Despite the revealing CARB filings, Mazda has not officially disclosed the launch date for the CX-70 in the United States. However, industry observers anticipate the model will play a crucial role in Mazda’s strategy to achieve sales targets of around 500,000 vehicles in the country by the mid-2020s. For the year 2023 alone, Mazda aims to sell 350,000 cars, positioning the CX-70 as a significant addition to the brand’s lineup as it navigates its ambitious growth plans.
