Could be launched sometime in 2016.

A prototype of the Mazda CX-4 sports crossover has been spied up close, offering a closer look at the exterior and interior designs, as well as the features in store. It could be launched sometime in 2016, ahead of the next generation Mazda CX-5 in 2017.

Spyshots reveal an exterior design that appears to be very close to the Mazda Koeru concept from the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show (2015 IAA). Heavily influenced by the KODO design language, the test mule features LED headlamps with DRLs which flow into an upright horizontal slat grille, and small boomerang-shaped foglamps.

Compared to the Koeru concept, the bumper designs have been slightly revised, while the rear end has dual tail pipes that are no longer integrated into the bumper. The interior seems to be inline with the 2016 Mazda CX-9 that was unveiled at the 2015 LA Auto Show last month.

It comes equipped with a freestanding Mazda CONNECT infotainment display with a dial controller on its floor console, a McLaren 650S-inspired 3-piece instrument cluster with a rev counter in the center and a small digital speedometer within the dial.

No technical specifications of the CX-4 have surfaced, as of now. It is likely to offer the more-practical Mazda CX-5’s engine lineup, which includes two SKYACTIV-G petrol engines: 155 hp 2.0-liter or 184 hp 2.5-liter four cylinder engines. The CX-5 comes with a 6 speed manual or automatic, as well an AWD system as an optional extra.
