Mazda is investigating how the bold new Koeru concept might fit into its model range, according to European president Jeff Guyton.
The manufacturer offered a glimpse of a new coupé-like SUV model with the unveiling of the Koeru at the Frankfurt motor show.
The Koeru is said to be a crossover SUV concept and not based on any existing model’s platform. However, it is much the same size as the CX-5, with an almost identical length and wheelbase. It is 4600mm long and has a 2700mm wheelbase.
It has more sweeping styling than the CX-5, though, suggesting it could preview a coupé-like version to slot between the CX-5 and the smaller CX-3.
“While the crossover segment is growing, we need to know what a car like this would do to our other sales,” he said.
The implication is it might impact on sales of the CX-3 and CX-5, which are currently booming.
