    Rumorpile: Mazda Working On Smaller Crossover

    Mazda currently sells three crossovers; the seven-passenger CX-9, the sporty CX-7, and the new five-passenger CX-5. However, there could be a fourth crossover in the cards.

    CarAdvice.com.au has learned from a Mazda source that the company is thinking about building a subcompact crossover to capitalize on the growth of SUVs worldwide.

    “We are now developing a more compact SUV [than the CX-5] – more for Europe and we must imagine emerging markets … Eastern Europe, South America, India…” the source said. “It is common sense [to build it]. We have to develop this vehicle, whether we call it CX-2, CX-3 or CX-4.”

    If signed off, the new subcompact crossover will likely be based on the next generation Mazda2 and come with the full suite of SkyActiv technologies.

    We'll the blue mazda pic on the other web site a least shows they have gotten rid of the ugly big black mouth for a grill, it is a much nicer looking auto.

    I think even here in the US, there is plenty of room for a Small or Subcompact AWD CUV. I know my son wants one that is abit smaller than the Chevy Equinox. To him a 4 person compact AWD CUV is the perfect size. Guess it would be for people 5'8" tall or smaller which he is. I can see this in markets around the world. Especially if it can run o alternative fuels.

    CX-5 is about the same length as the Mazda 3 already.. 9 inches shorter than the Equinox but the same width.. I guess when they mean small they mean puny.. Mokka/Encore sized.

    You mean there could be a FOURTH crossover in the cards.

    Sorry to be pedantic... but you fixed it one way, broke it another... forth != fourth.
