With crossover’s being all the rage in the automotive world these days, it’s no surprise that manufacturers are experimenting a bit more with crossover design. Mazda’s no exception, with the company’s Koeru crossover concept set to debut at next month’s Frankfurt Motor Show.
The official rendering shows the latest version of the Japanese firm’s Kodo design language, with the Koeru sporting a sleek arrow-like profile thanks to a low roofline, blacked out B-pillar and long front overhang. Rumour has it that the Koeru (which means to “go beyond” in Japanese) could very well be a preview of a CX-4 production model – which fits in with today’s crossover coupe trend.
If the CX-4 gets the production greenlight, Mazda will have its work cut out, with such premium new models as the BMW X4 and Mercedes-Benz GLC coupe already trading blows in the segment.
