Mazda has clearly put a lot of effort into ensuring that the CX-60 cabin is a comfortable place in which to spend time. Black leather upholstery is standard, while a heating function is included for the front seats and the steering wheel. Upgrade from the entry Exclusive-Line trim and you’ll benefit from electrically-adjustable front seats with a ventilation setting, heated outer rear seats and ambient lighting.

Family practicality hasn’t been forgotten, though, because the CX-60 provides a range of storage options such as a front centre console area with two cup holders, a good-sized glovebox, a roof-mounted sunglasses holder and seatback pockets. The boot also features a generous under-floor compartment, which means there’s extra space to store oddments (and charging cables, if you opt for the PHEV model).

Installing a child seat is relatively straightforward thanks to the CX-60 offering a raised seating position, large rear doors and Isofix clips that are easily accessible.

Size

The CX-60 is a mid-size SUV and at 4,745mm long and 1,890mm wide, it’s a shade bigger all-round than its Lexus NX and Audi Q5 rivals.

Leg room, head room & passenger space

Room upfront is fine, much as you’d expect in a mid-size SUV, while rear-seat passengers shouldn’t feel too shortchanged, either. There is plenty of foot space beneath the front seats, but the CX-60 can’t match the knee room offered by its Volvo XC60 rival, or the excellent headroom provided in the Lexus NX - a problem made worse by the high-set middle rear passenger seat.

Boot

With a 570-litre boot, the CX-60 offers a tremendous amount of luggage space, while the relatively low load lip is flush with the boot floor which makes loading/unloading bulkier items that little bit easier. Folding down the rear seats (using the release levers located in the boot) means you can unlock a sizeable 1,726 litres of carrying capacity.

Towing

All versions of the CX-60 have a maximum towing limit of up to 2,500kg, which should be enough for most day-to-day needs.
