Mazda Next-Generation Design Vision

 — Mazda fans know the Japanese automaker periodically releases styling concepts that set the stage for a generation of vehicles to follow. Eleven years ago, it was Nagare. Four years after that, Kodo debuted. Now the automaker says it will show a concept at this month's Tokyo Motor Show 2017 that demonstrates "the direction of the company's next-generation design" and "a more profound expression" of Kodo.

Mazda released a teaser image of the concept, which depicts a low-slung sedan with a long hood, hard-edged tail and prominent horizontal bodywork across the beltline — elements similar to the Kia Stinger, which is a good place to start. Mazda's Shinari concept, which launched all things Kodo, had similar proportions but flared fenders and a more gradual tail. If the teaser image is any indication, Kodo's next stage will alter both elements.

Mazda said it will also debut a small hatchback concept at the show. Teaser images showed a dramatically raked rear window and a diving character line from the door handles to the front wheels. The concept could portend the next Mazda3, the current generation of which dates back to late 2013.
