A new generation of Mazda’s CX-9 crossover will debut this month at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show. In the lead up, Mazda has released this single teaser image but we already have a good idea what the new three-row crossover will look like thanks to the recent sighting of a prototype.

There’s a clear resemblance to Mazda’s Koeru concept unveiled at September’s Frankfurt Auto Show. We can also see some hints of the smaller CX-5’s styling, which is a good thing as Mazda’s compact crossover is one of the most handsome in its segment.

Unfortunately, there are few solid details on the new CX-9 but it’s rumored the current model’s thirsty V-6 will be replaced by a downsized turbocharged four-cylinder. The engine will likely be based on the latest SkyActiv-G 2.5-liter four-cylinder found in other Mazdas.

Stay tuned for the full reveal of the 2016 Mazda CX-9 in just a couple of weeks. The L.A. Auto Show gets underway November 18 but in the meantime see what else is set to appear via our dedicated hub.
