Mazda Kai Concept and Vision Coupe
By: Fedora Atjeh | Oktober 25, 2017
As we anticipated a couple of weeks ago, Japanese manufacturer Mazda had two exciting prototypes ready for the Tokyo Motor Show. They are called Kai Concept and Vision Coupé, and as one advances the next generation of a model series, the other is a look at the future of Mazda design.
The Mazda Vision Coupé represents the minimalist elegance that holds the future Mazda, although it is still based on the Kodo design philosophy introduced in 2010. According to the brand, the Japanese aesthetic seeks a "delicate balance" rather than a display of ostentation , following the idea of less is more.
Basically, the prototype stands out for a spectacular silhouette featuring a long hood, a typical Mazda family grille evolution, curious headlights, large windshields, absence of mirrors, many glass surface on the roof or a sinuous backside with four exhaust vents and some pilots that appear to be embedded in the body.
Kai concept the future of Mazda3
This compact five-door is a preview of the future Mazda3, but in addition to giving a look at the future design of the model, it also places special emphasis on technology, such as Skyactiv-X engines, which introduce a technology called Spark Controlled Compression Ignition (SPCCI ) and will be the first production engine to use compression ignition.
In addition to the engines, the Skyactiv architecture promises a development of components such as chassis or seats based on human anatomy, with improvements in body rigidity, lower NHV values (noise and vibrations, in essence) and solutions like the G -Vectoring Control or vector par casting.
This four-seat Mazda Kai Concept measures 4.42 meters long, 1.85 meters wide and 1.37 meters high, with a battle of 2.75 meters. The prototype, front-wheel drive, has tires in dimensions 245/35 R20 on the front axle and 245/35 R20 on the rear. If you want to know more, do not miss the image gallery.
