By 2016, Mazda will be offering a new full-sized SUV and a B-segment 4x4 line-up, Mazda president Takashi Yamanouchi told Autocar at the Frankfurt Motor Show. He also provided details about the two models, which are part of a series of 8 models. The first model in this batch is the CX-5, which came out last year.

The other key members of the new model generation include last year’s Mazda 6 saloon and the new Mazda 3hatchback, the B- segment and D-segment SUVs, together with the 2014 Mazda 2 supermini, the 2015 MX-5 sports car and a replacement for the Mazda 5 MPV. Sources told Autocar that the smallest of this trio of 4x4s is a truly new Mazda model.

They also divulged that it won’t share many aesthetic similarities with the CX-5, its bigger sibling. A Mazda spokesperson said that the CX-5 was the last model designed under Laurens van den Acker. He also said that most of its detailing remains current in thematic terms but in line with Mazda’s “Kodo’ design language,” this smaller crossover will be more good-looking and expressive.
