The compact sport crossover vehicle concept from Mazda, called the Kazamai, was recently unveiled in the Moscow International Automobile Salon on 26th August. Previous concepts like Nagare, Ryuga, Hakaze, Taiki and Furai had been modeled with nature in mind. Kazamai is no different. Designed with the theme of “crosswinds”, the Japanese automaker hopes that its unique proportions and unconventional lines will have a deep emotional appeal amongst onlookers, and give them a sense of visual lightness. For the exterior, the concept features a 5-point grill, low sleek roofline, and very bold wheel arches that barely contain its massive 22-inch wheels.
Underneath this sleek body, the Kazamai is fitted with a next generation direct-injection engine, mated to a newly developed transmission that most likely contains some variant of the dual-clutch system. All these will be sitting on a 4-wheel drive platform. Though the construction materials have yet to be confirmed by Mazda, the company did mention that the material is both lightweight and robust. Hopefully, this ones’ and other mysteries will be revealed once the car goes in production.
