On April 19, Mazda Motor Europe unveiled the Mazda CX-80, the first-ever crossover SUV, on April 18 at the local time. In Europe, the pre-sales will start in May, and the product will go on sale in fall 2024.

The CX-80, the fourth model in Mazda's global large product group following CX-60, CX-90 and CX-70, is a mid-size crossover SUV. The model is Mazda's first three-row SUV to be introduced in Europe and will be the flagship model in its European product lineup.  

With the design concept of "Graceful Toughness," the CX-80 is designed to express a sense of toughness, typical to an SUV, as well as an elegant presence. The second row of the CX-80 is available in three types: separate captain seats with a console; captain seats that allows walk-through without a console; and a bench seat.

Two types of electrified powertrains are available for Europe: 'e-SKYACTIV PHEV,' a plug-in hybrid system based on a 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder gasoline engine, and 'e-SKYACTIV D,' which combines a 3.3-liter inline 6-cylinder diesel engine with M Hybrid Boost.

Among the safety features, "Cruising & Traffic Support (CTS) with Unresponsive Driver Support" is adopted for the first time in Europe. When CTS is active, the system alerts the driver, confirming if the driver closes eyes or looks away from the road ahead. If the driver's condition remains unchanged, the system assists in decelerating and stopping the vehicle.
