Mazda: Kazamai news

From WCF...

The Japanese name translates to “swirling crosswinds” which Mazda use to express the powerful yet nimble image of a stylish and compact crossover and it further enhances speculation that a new small SUV is likely to be added to the Mazda portfolio in the coming years.

We doubt you are gonna see a sportier looking SUV than the new Kazamai Concept, the Nagare design language flows through with its five-point grille, 22 inch wheels and aerodynamic profile, but putting the beautiful exterior design to the side for a moment we can tell you the mechanics of the vehicle have not been ignored.

The powertrain consists of a next-generation direct injection engine and a newly-developed transmission which passes power to all wheels via its four-wheel drive system. The driving dynamics have been developed to create a fun-to-drive vehicle and Mazda states that if the model makes it to production form, we can expect frugal fuel consumption and greatly reduced CO2 emissions.

It's going to be a baby CX-7 with some of the styling cues from this thing. Mazda is starting to get too predictable.

It looks like they took a big chunk of clay, then hired some samurais to go to town with their katanas on it, thus the sharp edges
