Cool Details on the 2024 Mazda CX-90 Three-Row SUV. While the big story with the CX-90 is its new platform. We found that the new crossover contains plenty of smaller interesting tidbits as well. Mazda likes to talk about how it creates vehicles that focus on the driver. This isn’t a unique or even unusual mission for an automaker to have. But it’s a mindset that the designers certainly embraced when creating many of the little touches within the new 2024 CX-90. Here’s a list of some interesting details we noticed on the upcoming premium three-row SUV.
Wider Center Console
The CX-90 is larger than Mazda’s current CX-9 crossover. The extra space allows the CX-90 to have a larger—specifically wider—center console. This allowed the designers to put the cupholders to the right of the shifter instead of behind it as in the CX-9.
Six, Seven, or Eight Seats
The rear doors on the CX-90 open further than we expected, to nearly 90 degrees. Mazda representatives said this is similar to the doors on the CX-50. It offers a noticeable bit of extra room to get people or car seats in the cabin.
Maple and Chrome Door Trim
Thin panels of maple are nestled above a chrome strip on the inside of the front doors on the highest trim level of the CX-90. The designers chose the wood for the way it catches the light and angled the panels slightly so you can see this in action when the sun is out.
Dashboard Fabric and Stitching
A Wide, Narrow Screen
The CX-90 has a 12.3-inch infotainment screen with a horizontal orientation. In keeping with the minimalist interior, the screen is stretched out wide and short, emphasizing again the horizontal space in the front of the cabin.
Second-row Heated and Cooled Seats
The CX-90’s front seats are further apart than in the CX-9 thanks to the new model’s extra width. The space between the available captain’s chairs in the middle row can be either another console or open space, and passengers sitting in them will find the captain’s chairs have both heating and cooling features (if so equipped).
