2018 Mazda KAI and Vision Coupe; Bright Mazda Future
Not a simple salon, but a real showcase on the future of its design. This is how Mazda has interpreted the Tokyo Auto Show, an opportunity to show the world the lines that will the models of tomorrow. “Wearers” except for the new stylistic mantle were the concept Kai and Vision Coupé, respectively the designated heir of the current Mazda3 and a four-door sport able to rival “Sacred Monsters” of the caliber of Audi A7 Sportback, Mercedes-Benz CLS, and BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé.
2018 Mazda KAI and Vision Coupe Specs; Engine Skyactiv-X
The Kai, as mentioned, is the manifesto of how the future generation of the Mazda3 media will be. A hatchback with two volumes of segment C, 4.42 meters long and characterized by the bodywork with five doors. The engine, located in front of the tradition for the Japanese sedan, belongs to the family Skyactiv-X. It is, therefore, a gasoline unit characterized by the Diesel engine-style autoignition, able to reduce consumption and emissions in the face of an increase in energy efficiency and the torque supplied. Strong of a sinuous line, with fewer net strokes than the current model, it leaves a further evolution in the sporty sense of the future Mazda production.
Evolution of the RX Vision
The Vision coupe is the evolution of the exciting RX vision, proposed in Tokyo in 2015. A prototype that, two years ago, was able to dream by proposing a technical concept particularly dear to Mazda, the strength of the mythical sports RX-7 and RX-8: The internal combustion thruster of the rotary type. That is to say the technical solution with the piston that does not follow an alternating rectilinear motion but it rotates around an axis. A technology renamed Skyactiv-Rand declined in the classic front engine configuration and rear wheel drive.
The Kodo design strikes again. The new Vision coupe is, in fact, a fascinating car, slender, from the elongated bonnet and the cockpit collected. Vintage proportions adapted to the modern era, with the clean sides from any element “dirty” the line and interiors of minimalist type. A new horizon for Mazda.
