Year of the cross­over

Rutherglen Reformer - - Motors -

2015 is cer­tainly the year of the cross­over coupe at the Frank­furt mo­tor show and Mazda joined the party with a boldly styled SUV con­cept called the Koeru which pro­vides a clue to the de­sign of its next gen­er­a­tion CX5 model.

Its edgy de­sign, low cabin and sub­stan­tial width on 21-inch wheels is very much in line with cur­rent trends in the cross­over mar­ket and the con­cept car boasts pre­mium lev­els of re­fine­ment in­side and out.

Un­der the skin, the Koeru boasts Mazda’s SKYACTIV tech­nol­ogy in­clud­ing ef­fi­cient pow­er­trains and sus­pen­sion as well as an in­ge­niously rigid body and chas­sis that en­hance han­dling and safety.

Hand­some the Vi­tara looks like a

proper SUV
