2024 Mazda CX-90 pricing starts at just over $40,000

The 2024 Mazda CX-90 is bigger, more powerful and more efficient than the CX-9 it’s replacing. And surprisingly, it won’t cost much more than that car, either. The CX-90 base model starts at $40,970, a little more than $900 greater than the base CX-9.

For that, you get quite a bit. You get the new turbocharged 3.3-liter straight-six that makes 340 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque (or if you want to run 87-octane fuel, 280 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque). Regardless, it’s much more power than the old four-cylinder. Plus you now get standard all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy is improved by 2 mpg combined, to 25 mpg. City and highway fuel economy are 23 and 28 mpg respectively.

The CX-90 plug-in hybrid is quite a bit more expensive, though. Part of that is because it’s only available on higher trims, with the lowest one being the Preferred trim. It starts at $48,820, and when compared to a six-cylinder CX-90 Preferred, it’s $4,000 more to get the plug-in hybrid powertrain. It uses a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder and larger electric motor to generate 323 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. It also has a 17.8-kWh battery pack that provides some amount of electric range. Unfortunately, Mazda hasn’t given fuel economy and electric range yet, but they’re undoubtedly better than the six-cylinder.
