Mazda welcomes the latest member of its growing SUV line-up at this year’s Beijing Motor Show. The CX-4 is the newest Mazda to feature the brand’s SkyActiv technology and Kodo – Soul of Motion design language.
The Japanese automaker’s latest vehicle is the production version of the Koeru concept which was first previewed at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. Aesthetically, the CX-4 shares similarities with the Koeru concept through the trapezoidal grille, sweptback headlights, and sharp character lines. The rear, on the other hand, comes with a spoiler and twin exhaust pipes.
Inside, Mazda said that designers intend to give the CX-4 a coupe-like cabin. It comes with a two-tone interior theme along with splashes of silver accent. In addition, it comes with a three-spoke steering wheel, a tablet-like seven-inch infotainment display, a dual-zone climate control, and a central push-rotary control for the infotainment system.
It is powered either by a 2.0- or a 2.5-liter SkyActiv-G gasoline engine. The former delivers 153 hp and 202 Nm of torque while the all-wheel drive variant puts out 189 hp and 252 Nm. Both engines are mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission.
However, the CX-4 is a China-only model and it goes on sale in June. There are no plans yet to bring the CX-4 in the Philippines. Locally, Mazda is offering the CX-5 and the CX-9.
