Mazda is presenting the TAKERI concept, a vehicle that gives us an idea of how the Mazda6 replacement will look like and will make its debut at the Tokyo Auto Show on November 30.
The mid-size sedan uses the carmakerâ€™s new KODO – Soul of Motion design language, but this is so much more than just a visual statement, as it features Mazdaâ€™s SKYACTIV tech (it is powered by a SKYACTIV-D diesel unit), including the companyâ€™s first regenerative braking system.
Hereâ€™s what Mazda had to say about the development: â€œCombined with the new SKYACTIV-D diesel engine, Mazda i-stop, new lightweight structure, aerodynamic and chassis technologies, regenerative braking â€“ enables the Mazda TAKERI to achieve excellent fuel economy together with vigorous performance and a comfortable high-quality ride.â€
When the new Mazda6 hits the US market at the end of next year, this will also arrive with diesel engines, a first for the model in America.
In addition to that, Mazda will also brings the CX-5 compact crossover to the event, which combines the same KODO design language and SKYACTIV Technology engines with new body materials.
