Mazda has broken its silence regarding the spied and speculated production version of last year’s Koeru concept.

To wear the Mazda CX-4 nametag, the new SUV will share its 2700mm wheelbase and basic underpinnings with the more practical CX-5, but offer a more style-focussed body that mirrors the fastback looks of the Mazda3.

Apart from a shadowy teaser image, and a promise of Mazda’s ‘Jinba-ittai’ driving enjoyment, the CX-4 announcement offers little else in the way of firm details. To really re-inforce the driving enjoyment message, the CX-4 will share its show stand with Chinese Touring Car Championship-prepared versions of the Mazda3 and Mazda6.

While the CX-4 could potentially offer the full range of SkyActiv engines as seen in the CX-5 including 2.0 and 2.5 litre petrol engines, and a 2.2 litre diesel, the car’s Chinese debut may see only the petrol variants announced.

As for a broader international debut, little else is being mentioned at this point in time; it remains possible that the CX-4 could be a product developed, at least initially, for the Chinese market only.
