The all-new Mazda CX-4 crossover will make its official debut at the 2016 Beijing Motor Show.

Based on the Mazda Koeru concept, the production CX-4 has actually been caught on camera in China earlier this year. Compared to the concept, the production model is toned down but you can expect to see the CX-4 sport the same overall dimensions and shape when it bows in Beijing late April. It also draws inspiration from the Mazda CX-9 that debuted at the 2015 L.A. Auto Show and it is more than likely its interior will resemble what is found in the larger SUV.

The Mazda CX-4 will serve as a compact crossover that will bridge the gap between the subcompact CX-3 offered today and the popular CX-5. Expect more details on the new model to be announced leading up to its debut next month.
