With the first half of auto shows over, automobile manufacturers are preparing new launches for the upcoming expos. The 2016 Beijing auto show is a prominent one in the list where it is expected that Mazda CX-4 is set to make its official debut.
Almost every relevant information is tightly kept under wraps but the company has released a single teaser image. As the name suggests, it definitely will inspire car lovers to dream some amazing designs for the CX-4 by revealing so less of the car. The vehicle is already in production because the brand has confirmed that they will be selling it before the end of 2016.
The 2017 Mazda CX-4 was earlier shown as the Koeru concept car and people had very little idea that it is going to be one of the most popular models of all time. The concept was showcased at the 2015 Frankfurt motor show but the name has been confirmed after such a long gap. It also signifies that the car is made to fill the gap between the CX-3 and the CX-5 Mazda models.
Teaser image shows that the design elements and size of the CX-4 could be very similar to the CX-5. It is built on the same platform on the 8.8 feet wheelbase. The engine variants are expected to be the same. The car will be powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine rendering 155 horsepower and 150 pound feet of torque. For better performance, there’s another variant with a 2.5-liter four cylinder. It renders a total of 184 horsepower and has 185 lb feet of torque.
The 2017 Mazda CX-4 is set for a grand reveal at the 206 Beijing auto show. The expo takes place on April 25. With two months to go, you can expect a whole lot of teaser images, announcements and interesting updates from the world of automobiles.
Mazda is just the first lot among other manufacturers to start teasing buyers with images and videos. Before the end of the month, there will be plenty more announcements coming in. Some cars may get launched before the actual show so as to not lose to other competitors on the show floor. Even though, early launches are expected, brands definitely have one or two important models to show at the Beijing auto show this year. Stay tuned for updates when the show commences as we will be there to cover it all.
