    I own a CX-3. It is immensely comfortable.

    According to this, the concept is slightly longer, wider and 200mm lower than CX-5. To be a sportier variant. Guess that keeps the Mazda3 safe.

    To add to the photo.

    HIROSHIMA, Japan: Mazda Motor Corporation has commenced production of the Brand-New Mazda CX-9 three-row large SUV.

    On sale in the North American market this autumn, 80 per cent of the estimated 50,000 annual global sales will come out of the U.S and Canada.

    The CX-9 is a high-end model of the new-generation line-up featuring the full range of SKYACTIV Technology and ‘KODO - Soul of Motion’ design.

    Made in Japan to the highest quality standards, it offers customers an indulgent experience of quality and comfort that goes beyond specs and functionality.

    To coincide with the start of production of the new model, Mazda has begun manufacturing a new 2.5-litre direct injection turbocharged petrol engine called SKYACTIV-G 2.5T.

    Built at its Hiroshima plant, the new generation CX-9 engine offers quieter, more refined Jinba-ittai driving with superb fuel economy performance.

    The Brand-New Mazda CX-9 arrives at Australian Mazda Dealerships in mid-2016.

    I think it's impossible for Mazda to make something that's not at least decent looking. O_O

    Mazda is now what Alfa Romeo was in the 1960s.

    Desirable but unreliable? Pretty sure Mazda has all the good of old Alfa but none of the bad, which was a lot.

    I wouldn't be too quick with that statement.

    So what of the bad did it get from Alfa?

    Electronics. An old Alfa is probably as reliable as a Type 1 VW compared to ANY of today's cars. I work for Mazda, from the 2 to the BT-50, bumper to bumper, there are problems that leave people stranded(without warning mind you).

    I've honestly never even heard of a late model Mazda having electrical problems. And I know a TON of late model Mazda owners.

    What "bad"?
    I work with late model Mazdas everyday.

    All cars have problems. Limp home mode is today's car's saving grace.

    I'm confused at your quoting layout.

    I've noticed that China gets some exclusively unique vehicles in the market from most manufacturers nowadays.

    You can bet your goat on it. Also, in unrelated news, I can't give you a ride. Apologies :lol:.

    Am I the only one that thinks this currently design language that works so well on Mazda's cars, does not work at all on their SUV's? This CX-4 just looks like a bloated Mazda3 (maybe that was their plan) and I'm not really liking it.

    It doesn't really differentiate itself enough from the CX-5 to work, in my opinion. Style wise, it really just looks like a Mazda 3 on stilts... Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it doesn't exactly make a case for itself, either. I guess I just don't see why it would be necessary with the CX-5 there.

    It's not as tall as the CX-5. The car has no real place as it will cannibalize the sales of the Mazda3 or the CX-3.

    It actually looks pretty much perfect. The CX-3 is too small, and the Mazda3 is great from the B-pillar forwards, but is otherwise also pretty cramped. The CX-4 looks like the better hatchback option to pair with the Mazda6

    Price wise I wonder where this sits, the CX-3 is roughly the same price as the Mazda 3, and CX-5 is the same sort of price as the Mazda 6.

    Something tells me the price will be really close to the CX-5 or the same, Which makes me think this might replace it, it's not as big height wise, but it's longer and wider and the price scale suggests it's sitting in the same zone, it is also in the right time frame for it to replace the CX-5 as it's been out for quite a long time now.

    CX-5 sells quite well in the US. The car may not make it to here.

    If Mazda has made this as the successor to the CX-5 then you will get it, but if it is to sell alongside im not sure.

    The more I think about it the more it looks highly likely that this car is the replacement for the CX-5, it's not exactly smaller(it's bigger in every dimension except height), but interior and exterior styling looks significantly more modern which suggests this to be the case.
