Mazda CX-60 – The result of a century of superior Japanese craftsmanship

 ·12 Jul 2023

For over 100 years, Mazda has strived to produce vehicles that merge a human-centric design with superior craftsmanship.

The company’s ethos of continuous innovation has ensured that Mazda remains the epitome of a human-focused car brand to this day – and no vehicle is better proof of this than the all-new Mazda CX-60.

The luxury SUV blends an unrivalled driving experience with the craftsmanship that has kept Mazda at the forefront of the automotive industry for over a century, and is now available in South Africa.

Innovation and excellence

Mazda’s dedication to innovation and excellence is driven by its Jinba Ittai and Kodo design philosophies.

Both are rooted in Japanese craftsmanship, and have motivated Mazda to deliver high-quality, reliable vehicles at every point in its history.

Jinba Ittai is a design concept that describes the bond between a horse and its rider.

Just as a horse and its rider must have a spirit of oneness, so too Mazda believes that every car owner should feel at one with their motor vehicle – whether it’s a sports car or an imposing SUV like the CX-60.

In the CX-60, this means that everything from your seating position and the angle of the multi-media interface, to the shape of the doors and side mirrors, is carefully considered to be human-centric.

Even the response the driver feels from the engine when they put their foot on the accelerator must feel like an extension of their own journey.

As technology has developed, Mazda has been able to push its Jinba Ittai philosophy even further.

For example: the SUV features a dual-pinion electric power steering (EPS) system that provides reassuring responsiveness and precision when you turn the wheel.

This gives the driver unmatched confidence that whenever they turn, the SUV will respond exactly as they intend it to.


Mazda’s dedication to innovation and excellence comes through in the extensive feature list of the CX-60.

The AWD Individual model is equipped with a Driver Personalisation system that automatically determines the optimal seating position and height based on your physique to ensure you are as comfortable as possible – which is vital on longer drives.

It then recognises your face and automatically adjusts the seat position, climate, and sound system to the preferences of each driver.

Drivers and passengers will also enjoy the HMI (Human Machine Interface), which includes a 12-inch driver’s display, a 12.3 infotainment system display, and a large Heads-Up Display (HUD).

This provides access to Android Auto and Apple CarPlay through Mazda Connect for a convenient user experience.

The large displays also allow you to interact with the Mazda CX-60 AWD Individual’s 360-degree View Monitor and See Through View that cover your blindspots and provide you with a full view of your surroundings.

Mazda’s dedication to you

“Mazda is dedicated to providing you with the utmost confidence in your vehicle,” said Craig Roberts, MD of Mazda Southern Africa.

“This is reflected in the CX-60’s human-centric design, as well as its 5-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty and service plan.”

Roberts explained that an aftermarket support service like this is vital to keeping your vehicle running as smoothly as possible.

“It provides drivers with a better overall experience and extends the lifespan of their vehicle, which is essential in South Africa where rough roads increase wear and tear,” he said.

This, combined with 3 years of included roadside assistance, will give all drivers ultimate peace of mind that their CX-60 is a vehicle they can rely on.
