The newest member to the Mazda crossover family has been caught on camera in China.

Essentially the production version of the Koeru concept that debuted at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, the crossover is expected to sport the CX-4 nameplate when it arrives. The production model is a toned-down version of the concept, which is to be expected. The overall dimensions and shape, however, have been retained, with less aggressive fenders and much smaller wheels than the concept’s 21-inch rollers. More importantly, the CX-4 gives us some insight into how the Koeru’s design language will look like in production cars.

Inside, expect the CX-4 to be heavily inspired by the new Mazda CX-9 that debuted at the 2015 L.A. Auto Show.

The CX-4 will slot between the subcompact CX-3 and the midsized CX-5. Like the CX-3, it will be a sporty crossover, but it will be more practical with more interior and cargo space. It will likely be powered by the same 2.0-liter SkyActiv engine found in the CX-5 as well as a 1.5-liter diesel offering borrowed from the CX-3.
