Mazda CX-60: three things we like, one thing that's annoying and one thing we hate

In future reports I've got big things planned for the CX-60. One is a long roadtrip to France and another is testing its towing capabilities. But, for this quick update, here are three things l like about the CX-60, one thing I hate and one thing that is just annoying.

Like: the engine

Even though it’s a diesel, this thing has a lovely rumble on full chat. Although at very low speeds it sounds like it’s broken...

Like: the colour and trim

When freshly washed the blue really zings, and has a cool almost gradient-like effect from the roof to the bottom. Be careful though, this colour also marks easily. 

Like: the seats

They are really good, super comfy and massively adjustable. Perfect for when your other half is a lot smaller than you.

Annoying: the BONGS

If I look away for a split second I get an annoying bong saying I’m distracted. It’s way too sensitive. Also, I don’t want my car watching me.

Hate: the heat

I can’t regulate the heat. It’s like a sauna in the summer (even after mild nights) and you need full air-con on for ages to cool it down.
