Hiroshima, Japan – Mazda has announced it will present an all-new concept vehicle at this year’s Moscow International Automobile Salon in August. The concept is a sporty, compact crossover designed especially for the Russian market.

The concept is the latest to be developed using Mazda’s new “Nagare” design direction, following the Nagare, Ryuga, Hakaze, Taiki and Furai vehicles. Nagare, which means “flow” in Japanese, represents movement in car design, inspired by the flow patterns of natural elements. The design theme of the Russian concept vehicle is “crosswinds”.

Russia is one of Europe’s fastest-growing markets and is rapidly becoming the region’s largest automobile market; SUVs have a segment share of about 20 per cent. The concept is intended to target younger owners with a strong sense of style. The company will unveil the concept on August 26 and will announce its name at a later date.
