Mazda CX-4 – Coming to Europe!

Ahead of its debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, Mazda have released this shadowy rear shot of the new CX-4. It is expected to enter production in late 2019, which would suggest a UK launch late this year or early next year. Think of this as a rival to the new Range Rover Evoque.

While this hasn’t been officially identified a the CX-4, Mazda have said that it will slot between its existing SUVs and have referred to it as a ‘compact SUV’.

The following statement was released by Mazda:

“A new Mazda compact SUV will make its world debut at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show. The second model in the company’s new-generation line-up features a more mature Kodo design language and Mazda’s new-generation SKYACTIV-Vehicle Architecture (that underpins the new Mazda 3). The powertrain line-up showcases the latest SKYACTIV engines, including the company’s revolutionary SPCCI (Spark Plug Controlled Compression Ignition) technology, which has a unique combustion method combining the free-revving performance of a petrol engine with the superior response of a diesel.”

There is currently a CX-4 on the market in China which was built in partnership with FAW. With the world’s appetite for SUVs growing, Mazda have made a smart move making this new model a global effort.
