There’s 258 litres of boot space available with all the CX-80’s seats in place. That grows to 687 litres when the rearmost seats are folded flat – a process which is quick and simple to do by pulling straps on the backs of both seats. When all but the driver and front passenger’s seats are down, the CX-80 can carry up to 1,221 litres of cargo, or 1,971 litres if you load it right to the ceiling. 

Mazda is keen to flaunt the CX-80’s 2,500kg maximum towing capacity, which applies to both diesel and plug-in hybrid models. The car also features a ‘Trailer Hitch View’ for its camera system to make it easy for the driver to attach a trailer when they’re on their own, while a dedicated Towing drive mode adjusts for the additional weight of a trailer and optimises the AWD system to improve straight line stability. 

Length 4,995mm
Width 1,890mm

Boot space 258 litres (all seats in place)

What safety tech does the Mazda CX-80 have? 

Mazda is introducing some new safety features with the CX-80, such as head-on collision mitigation as part of an upgraded ‘Smart Brake Support’ system, and ‘Cruising and Traffic Support’ that can take action if the driver becomes unresponsive. Other safety kit fitted as standard includes blind spot monitoring, cruise control, lane keep assist, traffic sign recognition and driver attention alert. A 360-degree camera is offered on the CX-80 and features the ‘Trailer Hitch View’ and a ‘See-Through View’ to help with manoeuvring in tight car parks and city streets.

What will the Mazda CX-80 price be?

Prices for the Mazda CX-80 will start from £48,920 when order books open later this year. That’s only £3,600 more than the CX-60’s base price and nearly £11,000 less than the entry-level Volvo XC90. In addition to the two engine options and various seat configurations, there will be five trim levels for buyers to choose from: Exclusive-line, Homura, Takumi, Homura Plus and Takumi Plus.

Standard equipment on every CX-80 will include the dual 12.3-inch displays, wireless smartphone connectivity, eight-way adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, three-zone air conditioning, head-up display, seven-seat configuration and the suite of driver assistance systems.
