Mazda teases Frankfurt-bound Koeru concept
Mazda has published a teaser sketch to preview a new concept called Koeru that will be presented to the public next month at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
Up front, the Koeru falls in line with Mazda’s Kodo Soul of Motion design language thanks to styling cues such as sharp headlights and a bold shield-shaped grille. Beyond that, it stands out from the company’s other crossovers with a tall belt line, a low roof and a rakish C-pillar that gives it an almost coupe-like look.
Mazda promises the Koeru – a word which means “to exceed” or “to go beyond” in Japanese – is powered by a Skyactiv engine, but full technical details are being kept under wraps until the concept makes its official debut.
Mazda has not revealed what the future holds for the Koeru concept. It could be a simple design study, or it could spawn a new sport-focused crossover in the coming years. For what it’s worth, the CX-5, the Mazda6 and the Mazda2 were all previewed by close-to-production concepts like the Koeru.
Stay tuned, we’ll bring you more on Mazda’s latest concept straight from the show floor in Frankfurt starting on September 15th.
