The striking four-door coupé features what Mazda has called the next generation of its Kodo design language, with “less is more” styling. Mazda says it draws from the R360 from 1960 and Mazda Luce from 1969. No performance details about the new concept have been revealed.
Mazda is understood to have been considering a new sports car since the unveiling of its RX Vision concept at Tokyo in 2015. It was initially understood to be looking at a new rotary-engined machine, but it could also use a version of the firm’s Skyactiv-X compression ignition technology, which is due in 2019. Mazda officials have previously told Autocar that engine is designed to work with electrified elements, suggesting a hybrid set-up could be used to boost performance.
