Mazda previews next-generation 3 and sports car concepts for Tokyo motor show

Mazda has confirmed that it will take two concepts to the Tokyo motor show later this month – one previewing the next 3, the other a dramatic sports car to showcase its next generation of design. AutoCar said

 

The brand’s Skyactiv-X powertrain is a main focus of its Tokyo motor show effort this year, with the as-yet-unnamed concept precursor to the next 3 being built on Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture.

 

This further shows Mazda’s intent with the Skyactiv-X, which will gain a plug-in hybrid variant in 2021 - around the same time as the next 3 is due.

 

Mazda describes the concept as "a compact hatchback", but the accompanying image is unmistakably 3-sized and builds on the current-generation 3’s design and proportions, albeit more dramatically for the concept.

 

Less is revealed about the so-called "design vision model", which follows the rotary-powered RX Vision of the last Tokyo motor show, but Mazda confirms that the concept previews its next generation of styling. Unlike the RX Vision, however, the new concept is a four-door coupé, where the RX Vision had only two doors.

 

“Our stand this year marks the beginning of a new era for Mazda. We will showcase a concept model with the design and technologies that will define a whole new generation of Mazda cars. Among them is Skyactiv-X, a gasoline engine that realises a long-held dream of the global automotive industry.”
