It was as the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show where Mazda took the wraps of the Koeru and now the concept is just about ready to make the transition to a production model. It’s going to wear the “CX-4” moniker and will adopt a coupe-like roofline which will enable a sleek side profile and hopefully it will still offer a decent amount of rear headroom.
The CX-4 will use Mazda’s latest iteration of the appealing KODO design language in a crossover expected to carry over most of the Koeru’s dimensions. The concept was 181 inches (4.6 meters) long, 74.8 inches (1.9 meters) wide, 59 inches (1.5 meters) tall, and had a wheelbase spanning at 106 inches (2.7 meters).
Without going into too many details, Mazda says the CX-4 will feature the full array of SKYACTIV technologies wrapped in a “striking appearance” which will set it apart from the current crop of crossovers. It will borrow most of its underpinnings from the CX-5 and according to company CEO Masamichi Kogai it is going to provide “more driving pleasure” compared to the other CX-badged models.
The Mazda CX-4 will be officially revealed on April 25 during the first press day of the Beijing Motor Show.
