Mazda Kazamai previewWed, 16 Jul 2008
As we reported in June, Mazda has now confirmed it will unveil a compact crossover vehicle concept at the Moscow International Automobile Salon on 26 August.
Called the Kazamai, which means "swirling crosswinds" in Japanese, the new vehicle is the sixth concept to employ Mazda's evolving 'Nagare' design language. The car's lines, inspired by crosswinds in nature, are claimed to evoke visual lightness, while its aerodynamic proportions accentuated by its bold front wheelarches and sleek roof line gives the design an emotional appeal. Riding on large 22-inch wheels, the Kazamai's compact dimensions are given enhanced sporting appeal.
Created specifically for the Moscow Automobile Salon - recognizing the growth of compact SUVs in the Russian market - the Kazamai is a good indication of a possible future compact crossover from Mazda.
