It’s scheduled for a Detroit Motor Show unveiling, and fans of Mazda’s rotary-powered RX-8 will be glad to know that their favourite sports car’s facelift is said to up the ante even more… The first spy shots camouflaging the car’s mid-life facelift have surfaced. Extensive cladding around the car’s nose suggests this RX-8’s entire front end will be re-designed, while the taillight clusters appear tweaked too. Mazda promises that the facelifted four-door 2+2 seater will, along with its revised styling, also enjoy improved handling and acceleration. Its interior will be updated too, though the 1.3-litre rotary engine is likely to continue unchanged.
Mazda will showcase the world premiere of the all-new Mazda6 (known as the all-new Mazda Atenza in Japan) at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
The all-new Mazda6 arrives as a full redesign of Mazda’s first model to embody the Zoom-Zoom product philosophy, offering a thrilling drive to all those who still remember the love of motion first experienced as a child. Following the all-new Mazda2, the new Mazda6 is the second Mazda new generation product to evolve to the next stage, further deepening the emotional connection between man and machine – Mazda calls it “Kizuna”.
Inheriting Mazda’s tradition of responsive handling and performance that has become recognized around the world and evolving from the original model’s distinctive design and exceptional functionality, the all-new Mazda6 takes a step forward in quality and offers strengthened environmental and safety performance. There are many options to choose from for customization, from small customization changes like window tinting to serious performance-enhancing upgrades. The result is an exciting and delightful experience that only the all-new Mazda6 can deliver.

Mazda’s concept unveiled at Detroit looked somewhat familiar to the Nagare concept recently unveiled at the Los Angeles show. That’s no mistake. The Ryuga, according to Mazda, is the next step in the evolution of the Nagare and, according to executive vice pesident Bob Graziano, shows “global design cues for the next generation of Mazda vehicles.”
A Japanese term referring to flow, nagare is applied as a design philosophy that embodies motion in forms. For instance, the ripples on the side of the car are inspired by those made by a breeze over water, while the dramatic, streaky headlamps are styled from morning dew on bamboo leaves. “The flow expressions that Nagare and Ryuga embody will be seen both in the near term on other concept cars and in the long term on production models,” said general manager of design Laurens van den Acker.
In addition to exterior design and styling, interior efficiency is an important part of the design. Although the Ryuga is significantly smaller than the RX-8 sports car, and about a foot lower than a Mazda3, it can accommodate four adults. Entry and exit is easy through the gull-wing doors.
Power for the concept is provided by a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder flex-fuel engine, capable of running on E85, gasoline, or a mix.
Mazda also displayed the new Tribute HEV on its stand. As its sibling, the Ford Escape Hybrid, the Tribute HEV delivers 155 hp altogether from the gasoline-electric hybrid powertrain and complies with strict SULEV-II emissions standards.
Mazda Motor Corporation used the Shanghai auto show to reveal a new Mazda 2 (the European model is pictured above and in the photo gallery) subcompact concept for China, to be built at the Changan Ford Mazda Automobile Company plant in Nanjing by the end of the year.
This Mazda 2 (a Mazda 2 for Europe was unveiled at the Geneva auto show) is for the Chinese market, but Ford Motor Company executives at the auto show said a new small car will be added to the mix at Changan in 2008. Officials wouldn’t confirm that it is the promised global B-car that will make it to the U.S. as well, likely in 2009 as a 2010 model, but we’ll make the big leap here, since the B-car will share its bones with the Mazda 2.

After presenting three ground-breaking concept vehicles during the 2005-2006 global auto show season – Sassou, Senku and the Kabura, which won Detroit Motor Show’s esteemed Aesthetics and Innovation Award at the 2006 North American International Auto Show – the 2007-2008 Auto Show Season continues to keep energy levels brimming with the introduction of Mazda’s design and surface language for future Zoom-Zoom vehicles. The new surface language called Nagare (pronounced “na-ga-reh”) was revealed at this year’s Greater Los Angeles International Auto Show and is the first of a series of design concepts that Mazda will showcase this global auto show season, including Los Angeles, Detroit, Geneva and Tokyo.
Under the direction of Mazda’s new global design director, Laurens van den Acker, the challenge given to the team was to invent a novel means of registering motion in vehicles whether they’re moving or still. Nagare, which means flow in Japanese, achieves that goal while also signaling a fresh design direction for future Mazda vehicles.
Franz von Holzhausen, Mazda North American Operations’ (MNAO) Director of Design, and the man responsible for leading the US-based design team, which developed this vehicle, explains, “We’re looking well down the road with Nagare. We want to suggest where Mazda design will be in 2020. To do that, we redefined basic proportions and the idea of driving without losing the emotional involvement. Mazda’s driving spirit will be enhanced and intensified by Nagare.
