Mazda CX-4 teased: mystery SUV to be revealed in Geneva

The mystery SUV is tipped to be an all-new CX-4

Mazda has teased a new SUV ahead of its Geneva debut, promising the mystery model will be "a brand-new addition to the Mazda line-up".

Except... it isn't that much of a mystery, with reports the world over pointing to the moody teaser image actually being of a new version of the brand's CX-4 SUV, which is currently only offered in China.

The CX-4, at least currently, is a crossover-style high-rider meant to look more sporty than the CX-5. This new model, which will be the first time the CX-4 has been offered globally, will slot into the Australian line-up to sit between the popular CX-3 and CX-5 SUVs.

And like the all-new Mazda3, the brand is promising its new SUV will make use of the brand's newest technology, including its clever, diesel-aping Skyactiv-X petrol engine.

"(The CX-4) features the mature Kodo design language and Mazda’s new-generation Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture, which draws out people’s inherent balance ability," Mazda says. "The powertrain line-up comprises the latest Skyactiv engines, including the revolutionary Skyactiv-X, which adopts a unique combustion method to combine the free-revving performance of a (petrol) engine with the superior response of a diesel."

Sadly, that's all we know for now, but Mazda is promising more information on March 1, so watch this space.

"This is a new, exciting product, but we can't tell you much about it yet. But we will reveal more in early March," says Mazda Australia's PR chief Sonia Singh.
