2025 Mazda CX-70 Pricing Boils Your Buying Decision Down to a Single Question

Will that be a two-row or three-row?

Head over to Mazda’s retail website, and you’ll see at least the couple highest trim configurations for the 2025 CX-70 SUV. The automaker revealed a full price walk for the two-row SUV it revealed last month, revealing virtually identical pricing to its three-row counterpart, the CX-90. The CX-70 lacks the same entry-level “Select”, but apples-to-apples, the CX-70’s $41,820 starting price (including Mazda’s $1,375 destination fee) lines up with its seven- or eight-passenger sibling. The trend holds true for both the gasoline and plug-in hybrid models.

So, the question is simple: Do you want a third row or a five-seater with slightly better cargo space? Otherwise, the two cars are more or less the same, apart from minor cosmetic tweaks. The lower trims bring an entry-level version of Mazda’s new 3.3-liter turbocharged inline-six, putting out 280 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque. That’s what you get in the base Turbo Preferred, as well as the $47,275 Turbo Premium and $50,275 Turbo Premium Plus.

If you’re wanting a bit more grunt, there’s a higher-output version of the same engine paired with the two “Premium” trims. That option bumps power to 340 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque, and will cost you either $53,825 for the Turbo S Premium or $57,325 for the Turbo S Premium Plus. And if you’re pining for the simpler days of easier-to-understand trim walks, I wholeheartedly understand where you’re coming from there.

For a bit of full electric driving capability, there’s also the 2025 Mazda CX-70 PHEV. The plug-in hybrid pairs a naturally aspirated version of the brand’s 2.5-liter inline-four with a more potent electric motor to the mild-hybrid straight-six. Thanks to the electric assist, you still get 323 horsepower as well as 369 lb-ft of torque. Your trim options drop to two from three, resulting in the $55,775 Premium and the $58,825 Premium Plus.

With this additional model, Mazda is also introducing “Melting Copper Metallic” as the new color option, as the automaker tends to do each year. Although we haven’t yet driven the CX-70, I have a strong suspicion it will be as sharp as its stablemate when we do get the opportunity. We’ll have more details soon, so stay tuned for those impressions.
