Mazda is debuting a new crossover concept at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show.
Called the Koeru concept, the new crossover is the latest evolution of the Japanese automaker’s Kodo Soul of Motion design language. Based on the sketch above that the company released, it appears that Mazda will add more sharp lines and angles to its vehicle designs, which have taken a softer, more rounded appearance over the recent years.
According to Mazda, the company wanted to “impart the Koeru with the power and vitality of a wild animal while maintaining a sense of refined dignity.”
The word Koeru means to “exceed” or “go beyond,” and Mazda believes the concept will embody the meaning of the word by exceeding the segment’s current standards and stereotypes. Along with previewing the next step in Mazda’s Kodo design language, the Koeru concept will also be host to the latest SkyActiv technologies.
The Koeru will debut on September 15 and check back with AutoGuide.com as we’ll be reporting live from the show floor.
