Mazda is giving us a first look at its latest crossover, and the CX-4 set to debut at the Beijing Motor Show will clearly show the influence of the Koeru concept we first saw at the Frankfurt Motor Show last autumn.
The CX-4, among other things, picks up the Koeru’s blacked-out B-pillars and floating roof design. Both the concept and production model offer the latest take on Mazda’s distinctive Kodo design language – which also was quite apparent in the updated Mazda CX-9.
Mazda previously suggested that the CX-4 could be something of a coupe-crossover take on the latest-generation CX-5, the pairing aimed at the likes of the BMW X3 and X4 pair. In its tease of the new crossover, the Japanese maker described it as an “exploring coupe.”
