The Kodo design language will reach production first in the Mazda CX-5 small crossover. Imagine this vehicle as a sedan and you'll have an idea of how Mazda plans to soften the Takeri's design for production. Even the headlight-joining chrome bar is there, however subtle.
Under the hood is the SkyActiv-D diesel engine. If I had to guess, I'd say it's the high-power variant from the CX-5 crossover that twists the flywheel to the tune of 175 horsepower and 309 pound-feet.
In addition to the SkyActiv engine and chassis tech, the Takeri will also feature Mazda's first braking regeneration system, which stores recaptured energy in a capacitor that, in turn, powers the auxiliary electrical systems.
