Mazda at the Toyko Motor Show
Double premiere for Mazda at Tokyo Motor Show
Mazda says that it will exhibit two concept models at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show. One that heralds the company’s next-generation products and another that embodies the direction of its next-generation designs. Mazda is also featuring the SkyActiv-X petrol engine as a technology exhibit at the show, which opens in late October.
The product concept, a compact hatchback that fuses next-generation technology and design, makes its world premiere in Tokyo. It features SkyActiv-Vehicle Architecture, next-generation technologies based on Mazda’s human-centred design philosophy that deliver optimum functionality, and is powered by the SkyActiv-X, the world’s first* commercially available petrol engine to use compression ignition. The upshot is dramatically refined dynamic performance to go with an eye-catching exterior.
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.
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. The Mazda CX-8 will be on sale in Japan in December. The Mazda MX-5 will feature a dark cherry red canopy and auburn nappa leather upholstery
