Mazda revealed two concepts at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show. The Mazda Kai concept, a compact hatchback that heralds a new generation of inspired vehicles from the award-winning Japanese carmaker, made its world premiere today. 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. The Kai Concept features muscular, solid proportions in a form brought to life by a delicate flow of reflections over the sides of the body.

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.
Otherwise, Mazda has spotlights on the all-new Mazda CX-8, a three-row SUV going on sale in Japan later this year, as well as the 2018 Mazda MX-5 and 2018 Mazda MX-5 RF. The latter offer a number of enhancements such as a higher quality ride, more peaceful cabin and a wider choice of body colors.
