Mazda1 Minicar and Compact CUV Concepts Heading for European Shows
Mazda will preview its forthcoming Mazda1 city car at this year’s Paris Motor Show in September through a close to production concept car that will employ all the styling cues shown in the Taiki, Ryuga, Hakaze and Furai into a minicar package. The production version of the Mazda1 that will slot right under the new Mazda2 is expected to hit the market by 2010.
According to reports, the Japanese carmaker will also unveil a compact 4x4 crossover concept at the Moscow Motor Show later this year. Like the Mazda1, the CUV will also be themed after Mazda’s provocative Nagare prototypes. The crossover is said to be designed specifically for the booming Russian car market which is on course to overtake Germany as the biggest market in Europe.
