Mazda Koeru Concept Review, Price

The Mazda has launched their plans of releasing Mazda Koeru
concept. This car is going to replace the original Mazda CX-7
existed in the market between 2006 and 2012. The Japanese
manufacturer showcased their new concept at Frankfurt Auto
Show. The Mazda CX-7 has discontinued three years ago. The main
reason behind the introduction of Koeru is that the company
lacked a platform for building a new model of CX7. However, the
new concept looks more like a preview of its predecessor and
carry forward the previous shape. Adopting Mazda’s Kodo design
language, the Mazda Koeru Concept looks elegant, offering a
perfect balance between conventional appearance and sporty
outlook. Consumers should expect brilliant upgrades including
better powertrain performance.
