2022/23 Mazda CX-50: new illustrations...

 



These new illustrations for the upcoming Mazda CX-50 look like a complete guess.

A design like this would be a complete departure from their current design language. And I have not heard it would be the case.
All we know so far is that it will replace the current CX-5. And will be based on Mazda's all-new RWD platform. It will share its platform with the next-generation Mazda 6 sedan.
It will also get the all-new Inline 6 cylinder engine as an option.
The base engine is still supposed to be a version o the current 2.5 Liter. Some reports mention the availablilty of the 2.5 Liter Turbo as well. Between the base engine and the new 6 cylinders.
While others claim the turbo 4 will just be replaced by the new 6.
There is also mention of a more "coupe-like" design. Which these illustrations do not show.

I think these are basically all wrong... There is still hope. So far, Mazda has done really well, designing really good looking cars and SUV's...

The big question is, does it look "Modern"?

Gross. I really hope not. Either way, does this mean the CX-50 becomes a midsizer on that platform?

I like it.

I like it, looks a bit more aggressive then current.
An inline6 could be interesting , something reliable and strong with low down torque.
I have never owned a turbo engined vehicle and altho the turbo technology has greatly improved, i would rather stay away from turbos and stick with non complicated, easy-low cost maintenance engines sans turbos/superchargers . Maybe Mazda has some new smart inline 6 engine that will put a smile on driver's faces and wallets.

Definitely rwd proportions in that render. I don't hate it.

Mazda has done well in styling their recent vehicles, but they aren't infallible. The recent MX-30 EV is proof of that.
