Mazda Teases Two Concepts Ahead of Tokyo Motor Show

Mazda Teases Two Concepts Ahead of Tokyo Motor Show

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. The company has released two teasers previewing its duet of concepts planned for the show, with one of which giving us a solid preview of the next-generation Mazda3.

Mazda's second, Tokyo-bound concept supposedly heralds the evolution of the company's Kodo design language.

Mazda isn't describing it as such, but the proportions and design of the "product concept" points toward it being the basis of the next Mazda 3. Mazda also did say that the concept will come in as a compact hatchback model with next-gen tech and design and that it will be running on the Skyactive-X spark controlled compression ignition engine. The concept will usher in a new design language for Mazda just as the Mazda CX-5 crossover did in 2012, so its debut should prove to be rather significant.

Bringing fuel under GST: Govt on the horns of a dilemma
In 2016-17, Maharashtra consumed 426.80 crore litres of petrol and 976.46 crore litres of diesel. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Wednesday ruled out slashing sales tax on petrol and diesel.

The next-generation Mazda3 hatchback is to be shown in concept form at October's Tokyo Motor Show.

In 2019-2020 year, Japanese manufacturers are planning to bring to market a sedan Mazda 6 new generation. While we still do not know what the Mazda 3 production model will look like after the upgrade, the new concept from Mazda might give us an idea of what to expect.
