With every new model, Mazda is getting closer to the premium segment. The popular Japanese carmaker is well-known for its stylish approach in designing cars, but the possible 2019 Mazda CX-4 could be a real breakthrough to the segment of luxury cars. According to the latest reports, the new model is about to come with design characteristics that are never seen before among mainstream crossovers. We are about to see a model that will definitely put the style before practicality.
The new 2019 Mazda CX-4 is about to come with a coupe-like design, which has been reserved for just a couple of carmakers so far. We are about to see a model that will slot between the subcompact CX-3 and compact CX-5 models. It will offer a more upscale interior, lots of equipment and amazing style. Latest reports suggest we could see it already in the next year.
2019 Mazda CX-4 Redesign
When it comes to base design characteristics, there is no doubt that the new 2019 Mazda CX-4 will come with plenty of styles. This is a pretty common thing across Mazda’s lineup, so we can’t say this will be a surprise. Still, it looks like the company is about to bring it to a completely new level. A level that puts the style above everything else. What could this mean in practice? We will try to guess. Though the new model still waits for the official confirmation, many experts agree that this should be on of the models to help Mazda finally make a breakthrough to the segment of premium cars.
First of all, the new model will feature a modern, coupe-like body style. This means a sloping roof design, which has become popular in the past few years and which is predominately used by German carmakers. Such a design approach would definitely have a bad effect on practicality. Still, let’s be honest, even the current Mazda models are much more about the style. You will hardly find a practical aspect, such as cargo room, in which some of Mazda models are among class leaders. The strongest points of these models are stylish interior and exterior designs, as well as excellent driving dynamics.
So, the 2019 Mazda CX-4 should continue in the same way and even emphasize these characteristics. First of all, expect a new model to follow the brand’s newest design language, with the addition of some brand-new details, seen on the new Vision GT concept. The CX-3 has been updated recently as well, and it looks stupendously good now. As you can see, the new model definitely won’t have bigger problems in terms of style. On the other side, we can’t say for sure to which of two closest models 2019 Mazda CX-4 will be more related. More likely, it will be the CX-5, mostly because of bigger dimensions, which guarantee more premium approach.
2019 Mazda CX-4 Interior
Same things go for the interior design. The CX-5 features a much better cabin that the CX-3, so you may presume which one will serve as inspiration. However, keep in mind that this should be a real premium crossover. So expect an even higher level of interior quality. This refers not only to the quality of interior materials but the overall layout as well. Simply said, expect even more style, as well as even more advanced technologies in all aspects. Of course, count on a pretty tight cargo area, as well as on a limited headroom, due to sloping roof design.
2019 Mazda CX-4 Engine
If you want to make a premium car, you definitely need a powerful engine. At the moment, pretty much all Mazda models are powered with a couple of engines.
The CX-3 recently came with an updated 2.0-liter unit, which now delivers slightly more power, around 150 hp.
The same engine is available in a little bit more powerful version, but a bigger 2.5-liter unit seems like a more natural choice for this crossover. It also comes in two variants. The base, naturally-aspirated version is good for about 185 horsepower. On the other side, the version with a turbocharger delivers between 227 and 250 horses, depending on the fuel. The latter one seems like a perfect choice for this occasion.
A great advantage is the fact that Mazda doesn’t’ follow the current trends of the engine downsizing, which leaves a lot of potentials for further upgrades. Also, keep in mind that the new SkyActive X engine is in the late stage of development. This engine is about to bring a never-seen-before efficiency, which guarantees lots of power.
2019 Mazda CX-4 Release Date and Price
The all-new 2019 Mazda CX-4 still waits for the official confirmation. At the moment, the new crossover is just a speculation, despite the fact that many experts see this model as a certain thing. If it arrives, it won’t be cheap. Despite being slotted between CX-3 and CX-5 models, it could easily feature a higher price than the CX-5. This one currently goes in a range between 25.000 and 30.000 dollars, roughly.
