Japanese for "swirling crosswinds," Kazamai gives a glimpse at where the next MAZDA crossover may be headed. Reflecting Mazda's new direction in technology development and "Sustainable Zoom-Zoom" strategy, Kazamai is both exhilarating to look at and exciting to drive. Small and lightweight, it features far fewer emissions than today's production models and significant advancements in safety and security.
The Mazda Kiyora represents the next generation of urban compact car and continues the evolution of the Nagare design theme, following in the footsteps of the Mazda Nagare, Mazda Ryuga, Mazda Hakaze and Mazda Taiki concept vehicles. Mazda Kiyora aspires to Mazda's long-term technology development vision, "Sustainable Zoom-Zoom", merging driving excitement and pleasure with environment and safety features.
Furai takes Mazda's unique Nagare (Japanese for "flow") design language a step further as it is translated into a concept car based on an American Le Mans Series (ALMS) racing car. Inspired by the fact that, on any given weekend, there are more Mazdas and Mazda-powered cars road-raced in the United States than any other brand, the Mazda Furai (translation: "sound of the wind") "... purposely blurs boundaries that have traditionally distinguished street cars from track cars, states Franz von Holzhausen, Mazda's North American Director of Design.
The Mazda Taiki sets a new ideal for the front-engine rear-drive sports car of the future and continues the evolution of the Nagare design theme, following in the footsteps of the Mazda Nagare, Mazda Ryuga, and Mazda Hakaze concept vehicles. As the fourth in the series, Mazda Taiki further advances and refines the theme through a fusion of the Nagare (flow) design concept and real-world technologies, such as a next-generation rotary engine and enhanced aerodynamic performance.
Hakaze is the third design concept of the series created around the 'Nagare' design language, joining the Mazda Nagare and Mazda Ryuga which were revealed earlier this motor show season. This four-seat coupe-style compact crossover SUV designed at Mazda's European Design Centre seems to be effortlessly cutting through the air, even when standing still.
Mazda's provocative Nagare (pronounced "nah-gah-reh") - Japanese for "flow" - concept, revealed at the LA Auto Show, introduced a new surface language that evokes the emotion of motion in a stationary automobile. Evolving that idea further, Laurens van den Acker, Design Division General Manager for Hiroshima, Japan's Mazda Motor Corporation, reveals the Ryuga (pronounced "ree-yoo-ga") - Japanese for "gracious flow" - concept, at this year's North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
Nagare (pronounced "na-ga-reh") is the first of a series of design concepts that Mazda will showcase this global auto show season. Under the direction of Mazda's new global design director, Laurens van den Acker, the challenge given to the team was to invent a novel means of registering motion in vehicles whether they're moving or still. Nagare achieves that goal while also signaling a fresh design direction for future Mazda vehicles.
