    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!

      We have been wondering what the next-generation Buick Enclave would look like and now we have a general idea. Automotive News got their hands on some new spy shots showing an Enclave test mule sitting at a gas station. It appears Buick has made the Enclave less bulbous than the current model. The front end features Buick's new waterfall grille that debuted on the LaCrosse and a set of slim headlights. For the back, there's a new set of taillights and dual-exhaust system.
      If the Chevrolet Traverse is anything to go by, the Enclave will get the current 3.6L V6 producing 305 horsepower hooked up to a nine-speed automatic. There is the possibility of a 2.0L turbo-four with 255 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.
      The next-generation Buick Enclave is expected to debut at the New York Auto Show.

      Cadillac is going to have a quiet 2017, but 2018 looks to be a blockbuster year as the first of their needed crossovers will launch - the compact XT3. Thanks to a spy photographer, we have gotten our first look at it.
      General Motors' camouflage department did a really good job of covering up the XT3, so we can't really tell much about the design except that it looks like an even smaller XT5. One detail they weren't able to cover up is the intercooler, leading us to believe that the XT3 will come with turbocharged power - most likely the 2.0L turbo. A nine-speed automatic and the choice of front or all-wheel drive is likely. Platform-wise, expect the XT3 to use the underpinnings of the Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain.

      The current Ford Focus has been with us since 2012 and it is getting somewhat long in the tooth when compared with the likes of the Chevrolet Cruze, Honda Civic, and refreshed Mazda3. But Ford is on the case as we have gotten our first look at the next-generation Focus caught by a spy photographer.
      It looks like Ford is planning to do some evolutionary changes in terms of the Focus' exterior to keep it in line with other Ford models. The interior looks to be taking some ideas from the new Fiesta and refreshed EcoSport with a similar center stack design. Reports say Ford will go with an all turbocharged engine lineup with the 1.0L three-cylinder EcoBoost being the base engine. ST and RS variants are expected down the road.
      We expect to see the next-generation Focus sometime next year.

      I have one co-worker who has been a thorn in my side for the past 6 months.... but I have to admit that when I need something done that is in his area of expertise, he goes after it like an angry rabid chihuahua and gets it done.
