We were introduced to Mazda's new design language with the Shinari concept at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. Now that the 2011 Geneva Motor Show has opened, Mazda has presented its next-generation of cars that are categorized by two aspects - SkyActiv technologyies and the new Kodo design language. Mazda's premiere of the Minagi definitely falls in line with the Kodo design which its unique characteristics.
The Minagi concept sports a chromed 'signature wing' that spears the headlamps up front, while dynamic contours are found throughout the body. Mazda's designers continual claim that this concept is designed and based off the anatomy of a cheetah. What we basically have here behind all the cheetah glamour is Mazda's upcoming crossover that sits below the CX-7 and is rumored to be named "CX-5".
