Dropping the rear doors from Mazda‘s latest SUV has made it even sexier over the one that debuted in Beijing.
Less practical, too, but choosing a CX-4 instead of, say, a CX-5 means looks are higher on one’s priorities’ list anyway.
Whether it would actually trouble the Evoque Coupe is irrelevant, for it will remain a five-door, but this doesn’t make TheophilusChin’s work any less realistic.
Never mind the Coupe; Mazda says the CX-4 has been launched as a China-exclusive model. In the local market customers will have a choice of either a 2.0- or a 2.5-liter four, rated at 156 HP and 189 HP respectively, sent to all four corners through a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
A pity, for, unless Mazda execs reverse their decision in the future, the rest of the world will miss out on this nicely executed compact coupe-slash-crossover. Maybe next time, then.
