    Spying: Mazda Koeru Concept Transitions To CX-4 or CX-6 Production Model

    From concept to production in a flash

    Mazda has another crossover waiting in the wings as two sets of spy shots from China show us. This new crossover's name is currently being debated by various websites as to call it the CX-4, CX-6, or CX-7. What we can tell you is this CX crossover looks to be a production version of the Mazda Koeru concept shown in Frankfurt last year.

     

    Comparing the various spy shots to pictures of the Koeru concept reveal Mazda has kept a lot of the concept's design for the production model. Such details as the front end that is similar to the CX-3 and CX-5 to the sharply raked rear end are present. Inside looks like every other Mazda with the same center stack design and control knob behind the transmission lever.

     

    CarNewsChina reports the Chinese-market version will get the choice of either a 2.0L or 2.5L four-cylinder. Expect similar options if this new CX comes to the U.S.

     

    As for when we'll see it, reports say either the Geneva Motor Show in March or the Beijing Auto Show in April.

    :puke: Sorry but this is a FAILURE for me. Damn Coupe styling on a CUV. Nose looks weird and what is up with the tail pipes just hanging out, not even integrated into the bumper. Not impressed.

    I just based my judgement on what can actually be seen. I hate the coupe-style cuv thing but I can't see any of that from that picture. Also, from that angle you have no clue if the tail pipe truly sticks out..at least that 's how I see it.

    You can clearly see on the red one that the bumper stops flat and level all the way across. Both tail pipes just stick out in space. You can find on so many other CUVs where the bumper comes down and is molded around the tail pipe giving a clean integrated look to the exhaust. America does this, Germans do this, most of Asia does this. This just looks unfinished to me.

    Oh snap! 

     

    The one link I clicked only had one picture of the white one at the front 3/4 view. I didn't know the other links had more pictures. I completely agree with you. I actually think the body is the best shaped body out of any "coupe" CUV so far though, by a good margin. Those tail piped have to be just fitted for testing because they look very out of place.

    I just hate CUVs in general.

    This one is no different.

     

    Ive got  a confession to make. I came in hating on the Koeru without even seeing it.

    Biasness  at its best, I guess.

     

    I clicked on the links...and guess what?

    I HATED what I saw!
