The concept of 'Kiyora' (meaning 'clean and pure' in Japanese) helped the designers to imagine a city car cutting cleanly through an urban landscape, with water as the design theme. Equipped with Mazda's next generation 4 cylinder direct injection engine and featuring the company's Smart Idle Stop System, the car achieves excellent fuel economy and low CO2 emissions. The improved aerodynamic performance of Nagare design also contributes to this.
The new Mazda concept car is based on an all-new platform designed to maximize weight reduction and a high level of safety, in pursuit of enhanced driving pleasure. It also features an interior design and new functions that support a youthful lifestyle.
Joining the Mazda Kiyora concept car on Mazda's stand at the Paris show, the Mazda MX-5 facelift will make its world debut, together with the Mazda6 equipped with Mazda's newly developed MZR-CD 2.2-liter turbo diesel engine, and the Mazda2 powered by a MZ-CD 1.6-liter diesel.
