Mazda Takeri is one of the most important concept cars of this year’s Tokyo Motor Show as it previews the next Mazda6 sedan.
The Takeri is designed with Mazda’s new design language KODO and has the silhouette of a coupe while having four proper doors and space inside for five. The KODO effect is plain to see with the fancy head and taillights, the bold front grille, and the design of the 20-inch wheels.
A hint that the Takeri is more than just a show car is the interior. It doesn’t have anything fancy and conceptual and is basically production ready. Sure it benefits from the latest infotainment systems and luxury amenities.
The car is also the meeting point for Mazda’s latest technologies. Apart form the SKYACTIV systems engine and suspension, the Takeri gets the new i-stop system specifically designed for diesel engines, and the new i-ELOOP regenerative braking system which results in 10 percent better fuel efficiency.
To be really honest with you, we don’t’ care about all that stuff. We just want the next Mazda6 to look as good as this concept car!
