The new CX-4 is set to make its debut at the Beijing motor show at the end of the month and it’s clear from the new teaser image that Mazda has just released that the crossover has been inspired by the beautiful Koeru concept.
The Kodo styling language seen on last year’s concept has translated well to a production car it seems.
The newbie, which reminds us a tad of a bigger version of the Mazda 3 hatch, will be more of a coupé -like counterpart to the CX-5 - albeit slightly larger. With the brand’s signature seven-point grille, LED headlights and riding on 19in wheels in a two-tone finish, it sure looks like a decent prospect.
The interior features white leather upholstery and “white walnut” wood trim, a head-up-display and a MZD connect infotainment screen. There’s also an electronic parking brake, first introduced on the 6 and CX-5 facelifts.
Reportedly only to be sold in China, it’ll be powered by engines seen on the CX-5 including a 155 horsepower, 200Nm of torque 2.0-litre, a 184 horsepower, 250Nm 2.5-litre direct-injected SkyActiv-G along with a 148 horsepower, 350Nm 2.2-litre SkyActiv-D turbodiesel. All will come mated to either a six-speed manual or automatic with a choice of either two- or four-wheel drive.
