The New Mazda CX-4 Is A Poor Man's Jaguar F-Pace But The US Won't Get It

Reveal

For now at least.

Meet the latest Mazda crossover, the CX-4, which has just made its official debut at this year’s Beijing Auto Show. Why Beijing? Because the CX-4 is for the Chinese market only. That’s too bad because we’re really digging it. It’s based off the CX-5 and closely resembles the Koeru Concept from the 2015 Frankfurt show. Basically, the CX-4 is a sleeker and sexier version of the CX-5 thanks to its lower roofline. It’s also a bit longer and slightly wider. Mazda even offers it with a choice of 17- or 19-inch aluminum wheels, the latter really giving it a sporty look.

Essentially, it's a poor man's Jaguar F-Pace. The interior is also fantastic, like every interior coming from Mazda these days. Everything looks high quality and could almost be mistaken for, dare we say it, a Jaguar. Mazda will offer the CX-4 with a choice of two gas engines, both of which we’re familiar with: a base 2.0-liter inline-four with around 150 hp, and a 2.5-liter with 184 hp. A six-speed manual transmission can be had with the 2.0 while the 2.5 will be offered only with a six-speed automatic. Question is, will Mazda ultimately decide to sell the CX-4 outside of China? As of right now, no, but that could easily change.
