Mazda CX-4 Crossover Unveiled in China with No Plans for U.S. Yet


The Mazda CX-4 has been unveiled at the 2016 Beijing Auto Show, and there are no plans yet to bring the crossover to North America.

As the latest vehicle to enter Mazda’s lineup with the brand’s new design language and SkyActiv technology, the CX-4 has a trendy coupe-like SUV profile and looks like a jacked-up Mazda3 hatchback with 7.8 inches of ground clearance.

Front-wheel-drive versions of crossover will be powered by a 2.0-liter gas engine, while models equipped with Mazda’s all-wheel-drive system will have a 2.5-liter four-cylinder gas engine under the hood. A six-speed manual is available with the smaller engine, while a six-speed automatic is optional but standard on the 2.5L unit.

The Mazda CX-4 goes on sale in China in June. There has been no indication of whether Mazda will bring the CX-4 to North America, but with the popularity of compact crossover here, it wouldn’t be a surprise if it’s made available here one day.
