Mazda Takeri concept

Mazda has released pictures of the Takeri concept ahead of the car's unveiling at the forthcoming Tokyo motor show. Said to preview the next generation 6, the concept is the second car from Mazda to adopt the 'Soul and Motion', or ‘Kodo', design language.

The Takeri's DRG is dominated by the now familiar large Mazda grille, itself rimmed by a silver section that intersects the lamp graphic. The long hood and sculpted fenders add a sporty demeanor to the car – something continued through the slick DLO, sculpted body section and demi-fastback silhouette. Around the rear of the car, the C-pillar flows into the deck lid, sitting atop the sculpted and inset rear lamps.

Inside, the minimalist, sporty theme continues with the cabin sporting a driver-orientated section, clearly defined from the three remaining seats in the passenger compartment. The IP is a simple affair, split horizontally by a body-colored blade that intersects the swathes of leather. The central tunnel houses a MMI system control, with the information being relayed through the single IP mounted screen.
