The Mazda Koeru concept has made it’s debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show and is an SUV crossover that could slot between the CX-3 and CX-5 in the manufacturer’s line up. Despite not being based on a current model platform, the Koeru concept shares very similar dimensions to the current CX-5, but features a more sporty, coupé style roofline.
Mazda have said they are unsure whether it would be intentionally positioned between the CX-3 and CX-5, due to it’s more dynamic and lower profile. Conversely, they have also stated it would benefit from being a part of an already recognised model range. This puts it somewhat in the dark whether we will see a new, separate model or a CX-4 in the future, despite it’s alternate styling.
Mazda claim a premium level of refinement on the outside as well as inside the low cabin. The bold KODO – Soul of Motion design offers a highly aerodynamic body, finished off with an aggressive grille and headlight pairing as well as 21-inch wheels. Mazda’s efficient SKYACTIV Technology powertrains also feature with a more rigid chassis for greater handling and improved safety.
Expect to see a complete version next year before the car is ready to hit the shelves in 2017, where Mazda will further their attack towards the fiercely competitive SUV market.
