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.
United Nations slaps global port ban on ships for North Korea sanctions violations
The UN has imposed a global port ban on four vessels that violated UN sanctions against North Korea . North Korea's main economic partner China has signed up to the measures, as has Russian Federation .
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.

The Post also reports that a former employee with Atlantis Casino and Resort said Paddock had a "God complex". Officers then went through the room to make sure no one else was hiding behind a curtain or in the bathroom.
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.
