Japanese automaker Mazda will launch two new cars in their European premieres at the Geneva International Motor Show: the award-winning Mazda RX-VISION concept and a new low-emission Mazda3 in combination with the SKYACTIV-D 1.5 clean diesel.
The RX-VISION concept puts a stunning new form to Mazda’s illustrious heritage of rotary-powered sports cars. Linking with the company’s one-of-a-kind range of RX-badged production models, the RX-VISION is a shining symbol of Mazda’s challenger spirit as the only carmaker to ever succeed on the market with the rotary engine.
The project also provided fertile ground for the company’s designers, who came up with a unique KODO – Soul of Motion look that screams performance and won the RX-VISION “Most Beautiful Concept Car of the Year” at the recent Festival Automobile International in France.
Meanwhile, The SKYACTIV-D 1.5-powered Mazda3 adds a new dimension to the award-winning compact with the most fuel-efficient version of Mazda’s model. The latest edition of the lightweight power plant enhances both a fun and comfort car with a faster, more linear engine response to accelerator input as well as new dynamic dampers built into each piston for a smoother, quieter engine. First unveiled in Geneva in 2014, the SKYACTIV-D 1.5 was thus far available for the Mazda2 and Mazda CX-3.
Mazda’s exhibit can be found at stand 5150 in hall 5 of Geneva’s Palexpo convention centre. The 86th Geneva International Motor Show will be held from March 3-13.
