Mazda Kai Concept previews next-gen Mazda3 in Tokyo

Mazda Kai Concept showcased at at Tokyo Motor Show is being previewed as the next gen Mazda3, and is a stylish 5 door with dynamic kodo design.

Being showcased as a concept, a number of features will not be seen on the production model. Exteriors boast of the current design language with slimmer and more aggressive head and tail lamps, smoother creases across its body with flowing lines. The door handles are embedded within the body and side mirrors are thin. The roof receives a solid color center with two ling pieces of glass situated above each passenger head.

The front gets a large grille with recessed headlamps on either side. It is noted with a distinctive splitter, flowing body work and massive fenders. Dual exhaust system and a small tail mounted spoiler are seen at the rear. Mazda Kai Concept is based on Skyactiv platform and measures 174” long, 73”wide, 54.1” tall and it has a 108.3” long wheelbase. While it’s shorter, its dynamic appeal comes through with a lower hung and wider body giving it the stance of a bigger car than it is.

Interiors get a three spoke steering wheel, a traditional instrument cluster and the very latest in infotainment. The seating is done up in black leather upholstery with red accents and piano black trims and extensive use of chrome is seen throughout its interior makeup. The bodywork flows but doesn’t lose its muscular stance. The wide front grille bezel is positioned to converge where the recessed headlights begin. There’s a wide transmission tunnet that separtes both front seats. Interiors have a plentiful dash of red to match body colour.

Mazda Kai Concept features Mazda’s Skyactiv-X gasoline engine with a compression ignition system paired with a supercharger which is believed to enhance torque by 10-30 percent and fuel efficiency by 20-30 percent as compared to current SkyActiv-G engines.
