However, although it is presented as SUV, some experts say its styling is more like a hatchback. All in all, Mazda CX-4 is, for now, available in China only, and next season we could see it in Australia first, and then in the rest of the world.
Buyers in USA and Europe would like to see the 2019 Mazda CX-4. However, the company is keeping this model only in China, and release date for other countries is not certain yet. Nevertheless, recent spy photos could tease Australian fans. The 4-wheel drive crossover was spotted, and Aussies could get it sooner than others.
