Mazda presenting new design philosophy at Tokyo show

Mazda presenting new design philosophy at Tokyo show”

This time we hear from Mazda, which is planning to unveil two concept cars including a hatch that could preview the next-gen Mazda3, as well as one that could preview the next-gen Mazda6.

The info at this stage falls short of an official confirmation, however the Mazda3 is ready for a new-generation - in early 2018 it will be four years since the current generation of the big-selling offering landed.

Also being revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show is an overt concept vehicle - the Mazda Next Generation Design Vision.

There are more clues to the concept's state of near-production readiness status than its name alone: Product Concept #1 looks to be finished in Mazda's signature Soul Red paint, for example, while its profile bears a striking - albeit streamlined - resemblance to the current Mazda3.

Oh, and Mazda will also use the show to reveal a second concept (pictured below), which doesn't preview any specific upcoming model, but which does apparently provide a foretaste of some of Mazda's future styling ideas.

We will keep you updated with further details on the fourth-generation Mazda3 as they come to hand.

We'll know more about the Mazda concepts when they debut in Tokyo on October 25th.

The three-row crossover SUV will go on sale in Japan in December and will be aimed at luxury auto type buyers who "both appreciate quality and need to seat more than five".

The other concept on display will be a striking four-door coupe-like auto, also demonstrating Mazda's future design direction. "The vision commits Mazda to substantive cuts in Carbon dioxide emissions, and we believe the best way to achieve this is to reduce emissions under real-world conditions while offering a mix of combustion engines and electrification technologies in consideration of each region's energy situation and energy mix", said Mazda's Representative Director, President and CEO Masamichi Kogai.

"Our stand this year marks the beginning of a new era for Mazda".
