Also showcased, was the second appearance for the Mazda Vision Coupe, a design concept that debuted yesterday evening at a pre-show event called Mazda Design Night 2017.

Highlights of the Vision Coupe, meanwhile, include a Kodo- Soul of Motion exterior that embodies a minimalist Japanese aesthetic, achieving a simple "one-motion" form that conveys a sense of speed. The interior applies the concept of ma (literally "space") from traditional Japanese architecture, combining three-dimensional depth with a strong longitudinal axis to produce a relaxed space while maintaining the feeling of motion.

As for the concept's name, it pays homage to Mazda's tradition of design elegance represented by coupe models like the Mazda R360, Mazda's first passenger car, and the Mazda Luce Rotary, also known as the Mazda R130.
