Mazda shows off a concept SUV in Moscow
Mazda releases sketches of its new SUV concept car ahead of its debut at the Moscow Auto Salon.
Over the last auto show season, Mazda demonstrated its new Nagare design direction with a whole series of concept cars, named Nagare, Ryuga, Hakaze, Taiki, and Furai. Now the company is seeing how one of these low-slung cars would look at SUV height. The new concept SUV will be shown off at the Moscow Auto Salon from August 29 to September 7. Mazda chose a compact SUV concept for this show because SUVs are popular in Russia's growing car market. Mazda only released sketches of its concept. These sketches indicate a design close to the original Nagare concept, with a similarly low cabin and pointed hood. The flowing lines on the sketches body are in keeping with the previous concepts.
