Mazda has been on a roll with SUVs and crossovers. The brand now has the well-respected CX-3, CX-5, and CX-9 in its lineup, offering a variety of options to modern families and drivers who want a little more versatility and space than the average car. Now, we hear tell that an all-new Mazda SUV will be on its way soon. Mazda fans recently got their first glimpse of the up-and-coming models at the Geneva Motor Show.
Mazda has revealed the all-new Mazda3 sedan with a new platform, and it stands to reason that the new SUV will be sitting on the same architecture and underpinnings. But where will the SUV sit in the automaker’s crossover and SUV lineup? One could speculate that the discontinued CX-7, which cycled out of the lineup in 2012, is getting a replacement. But Mazda representatives are keeping quiet on details until the new model makes its public debut.
The only information we know thus far about the all-new Mazda SUV is that it will use the latest SKYACTIV® tech to offer the new SKYACTIV®-X engine, which is said to combine the response of a diesel engine with the performance of a gasoline engine. Details are forthcoming when the Geneva International Motor Show runs from March 7-17.
