Next Mazda3 Previewed With Tokyo Concept Teaser

Share

Japanese carmaker Mazda is to present two world premieres on its home turf at the Tokyo Motor Show, which is set to open its doors from Friday, October 27: a compact five-door sedan and a study on the styling of future models in the years to come.

"We will showcase a concept model with the design and technologies that will define a whole new generation of Mazda cars". As such, it will benefit from the firm's SKYACTIV vehicle architecture as well as a range of improved-user experience technologies to enhance passenger comfort and make driving easier.

Saints trade Adrian Peterson to Cardinals
Our models project Peterson to post 21.2 yards on 6.2 carries, and 1.2 catches for 6.4 yards in the receiving game in Week 6. It was clear from the Saints' first game that Peterson was not going to fit with Payton's versatile, high-flying offense.

The concept will feature Mazda's next-generation technologies - though all the company has said so far is that these systems will apply a "human-centred design philosophy" - and the upcoming SkyActiv-X compression-ignition petrol engine.

Also displayed will be the Mazda CX-8, a new three-row crossover SUV with major upgrades to the SKYACTIV-D 2.2 clean diesel, as well as a special edition Mazda MX-5 Red Top. "Our stand this year marks the beginning of a new era for Mazda". With the all-new Mazda 3 expected in the next 12 months, it's logical to assume this concept will preview the company's next small auto. This innovative petrol engine technology uses compression-based ignition rather than relying exclusively on spark plugs to ignite the fuel - the same principle on which diesel engines work - which should lead to improved fuel economy, emissions and engine responsiveness.

Solar vehicles enter outback challenge
The Cruiser class is more practical, in this class, solar cars designed for practicality and acceptance in a given market segment. Defending champions Nuon are leading the 2017 race of solar-powered cars from Darwin to Adelaide.

The design vision model, meanwhile, defines Mazda next-generation design concept - a more profound expression of the globally acclaimed KODO design language that debuted on the Mazda CX-5 in 2012.
