Mazda Motor Corporation will certainly premiere the Mazda HAZUMI Concept next-generation subcompact car principle at the Geneva Motor Show which opens up on March 6 and runs through March 16, 2014. The name HAZUMI is a Japanese word meaning to ‘connected or emerge.’ Chosen to communicate the image of an untamed animal leaping, it is particularly suitable for a tiny car created to appear it is literally breaking with energy.
Declining to compromise on any one of Mazda’s automobile design concepts, the Mazda HAZUMI shares the ideal type of the business’s next-generation subcompact automobile. Additionally at the Geneva Motor Show, Mazda will certainly debut the SKYACTIV-D 1.5, a newly created little displacement tidy diesel motor, and display a celebratory display commemorating 25 years since the launch of the Mazda MX-5 (referred to as Mazda Roadster in Japan).
Details about Engine and Features
Mazda’s current design language has clearly been adopted by the concept, which is suggested to foreshadow the upcoming Mazda2 subcompact. The headlights and front-end design resemble the new Mazda6 very closely, suggesting that this concept is fairly near to production form.
The interior features a tool collection that has a household resemblance to the Mazda 3’s. The air-condition vents are round and we only view 3– we believe the production auto is most likely to get a few additional vents particularly in the middle of the dash, where they will be charged to blow air to the back as well because back air-con vents are unlikely in a B-segment automobile.
Mazda will premiere one of these engines, a small-capacity 1.5-litre diesel, at the Geneva program alongside the Hazumi.
Volume models are anticipated to make use of the exact same 74kW/150Nm 1.5-litre SkyActiv direct-injected, ultra-high-compression gasoline engine as European-market Mazda3s.
Furthermore, a brand-new model of the present Japanese-market Mazda2’s 1.3-litre SkyActiv direct-injected gas engine– forgotten for Australia in the present car– might additionally feature. That engine makes use of an astoundingly reduced 3.3 litres of fuel per 100km.
Expect the new Mazda2 to be the initial SkyActiv version to utilize a less expensive and more small rear torsion-beam suspension configuration rather than multi-link. Also expect weight savings thanks to the brand-new platform, and a new fuel-saving electro-mechanical steering device.
Toyota in 2012 signed a manage Mazda to obtain 50,000 yearly units of the Mazda 2 subcompact, which will switch out the Yaris in Toyota’s North American lineup. The cars will certainly be built in Salamanca, Mexico.
