Two Mazda concepts to be unveiled at motor show
Automaker will also present sleek CX-8 and a special edition of the Miata
Mazda is ready to peel back the covers of two new concepts at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show.
The first concept, Mazda says, is a compact hatchback previewing the next generation of a production model. Underpinned by an all-new platform and Mazda’s new Skyactiv-X gasoline engine, the teaser image strongly suggests we’re looking at the next-generation Mazda3.
Mazda’s second, Tokyo-bound concept is a bit more pie-in-the-sky. Not much is known about it, other than Mazda billing it as a “design vision model” and promising it “will define the next generation of Mazda design” — essentially an evolution of the company’s Kodo design language.
Along with the two concepts, Mazda’s Japan-only CX-8 — a sleeker, if not less practical variant of the CX-9 — plus a special edition MX-5 Miata will debut at the Tokyo Motor Show later this month.
Mazda’s upcoming hatchback concept is likely the next-gen Mazda3.
