The Japanese based Mazda carmaker has officially unveiled its all-new CX-4, the model being particularly built for the Chinese market.
Nobuhide Inamoto, senior managing executive officer at Mada China, has also confirmed that the Mazda CX-4 is aimed for China alone:
“Demand for SUVs here is remarkably strong and we expect this model will play a big part in expanding the Mazda brand in this market. We will continue working to strengthen our brand in China, aiming to become a brand which enriches people’s lives through cars.”
From a visual standpoint, the Mazda CX-4 is based on the CX-5 mid-size SUV, coming with the same wheelbase of 2.700 mm but being less taller with 1,535 mm as opposed to the CX-5`s 1,840 mm.
Inside, the cabin comes with a lot of ”exceptional user-friendliness” functions and tweaks, along with enough space to accomodate both passengers and their luggage. Unfortunately, the carmaker has not revealed the boot space, but it hinted at a ”flexibile” cargo space.
In the engine department, the Mazda CX-4 will come with Chinese-based engines, like the 2.0-liter petrol engine, with 116 kW and a front-wheel drive, following a 2.5-liter with higher 141 kW and all-wheel drive configurations.
In terms of fuel-efficiency, the Mazda CX-4 will come with an average consumption of 6.3L per each 100 km in the automatic 2.0L 2WD and 6.4L per each 100 km in the manual. The 2.5L engine will spawn up to 7.2L per each 100 km.
