Pure vision from Mazda

March 4, 2016

Mazda made its mark at this week’s Geneva Motor Show by unveiling two ideas – the Mazda RX-VISION, an award-winning rotary sports car concept, and the lowest-emission Mazda3 yet to be offered in Europe.

The stunning RX-VISION concept is brimming with pure sports car style and made its European debut in Geneva. It is the company’s latest visualisation of an exhilarating driving machine. Featuring a unique interpretation of Mazda’s KODO design philosophy, which aims to capture the very soul of motion even when the vehicle is stationary, the RX-VISION’s ground-hugging shape is only possible because of the compact nature of its SKYACTIV-R rotary engine.

Named Most Beautiful Concept Car of the Year in January at the Festival Automobile International in Paris, the RX-VISION demonstrates Mazda’s commitment to lightweight rear-wheel drive sports car perfection as well as rotary power.

Mazda has also added its most frugal engine – the SKYACTIV-D 1.5 – to the powertrain line-up of its Mazda3 compact car. Featuring extreme compression like all SKYACTIV engines, the 103bhp clean diesel delivers a combined fuel consumption of 74.3mpg with carbon emissions under 100g/km. New on the SKYACTIV-D 1.5, which is currently offered with the Mazda CX-3 and Mazda2, is a “Natural Sound Smoother” that further subdues diesel knocking by absorbing vibrations at the pistons.
