How much insurance payments are on the new Mazda CX-60

South Africans who wish to own the new Mazda CX-60 will need to spend at least R2,650 per month on insurance, according to research done by TopAuto.

The SUV can be had in two specifications, Dynamic and Individual, with prices starting at R739,800 and R844,500, respectively.

Both versions use a 2.5-litre, naturally-aspirated petrol engine with 141kW and 261Nm, though the Dynamic is rear-wheel drive while the Individual is all-wheel drive

Combined with an eight-speed automatic gearbox, fuel consumption works out to 7.3-7.7l/100km on a typical consumption, depending on the foundation.

Standard features on the SUV include automatic LED headlights, 20-inch alloy wheels, leather upholstery, climate control, a 360-degree camera, automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, seven airbags, hill descent control, radar cruise control, a heads-up display, and two 12-inch screens for driving info and entertainment.

It also comes with a 12-speaker Bose stereo and new Master Sound Revive Noise Reduction technology to remove background noise from digital audio tracks.

Finally, Mazda’s headline model includes a new Personalization System that uses facial recognition to identify the occupant of the driver’s seat and adjusts the seat position, steering wheel, wing mirrors, and HUD to fit their physique.

Insurance costs

We used Hippo’s car insurance quote tool to find out what the monthly premiums on the new Mazda would be.

The calculations were based on an individual living in a metropolitan area like Johannesburg with no claims history who would be able to store their car in a locked garage at night.

Below, you’ll find the nine insurance quotes for each of the CX-60’s trim levels, as provided by Hippo:

Insurer Dynamic monthly premiums Individual monthly premiums
King Price R2,651.78 R2,957.18
Budget R2,716.52 R2,776.74
Auto & General R2,873.88 R2,939.40
1st for Women R2,882.07 R2,948.44
Dial Direct R2,899.78 R2,964.79
Virseker R3,008.92 R3,078.64
Old Mutual R3,772.98 R4,060.51
Pineapple R3,871.06 R4,117.89
Iwyze R3,872.23 R4,059.77

Note that car insurance is heavily dependent on factors like your age, location, and claims history, meaning your premiums could be higher or lower than this depending on your circumstances.

Hippo also detailed the excess for each insurer, which are as follows:

Insurer Excess claim
Iwyze R5,850
Old Mutual R5,850
Pineapple R5,850
King Price R6,500
1st for Women R13,400
Auto & General R13,400
Dial Direct R13,400
Virseker R13,400
Budget R13,900

An excess is the amount that you are required to pay as a client when you are involved in a car accident and make a claim to your insurer.
