Visitors to the Paris International Motor Show, which starts on October 2nd, will be able to get the world’s first look at the Mazda Kiyora.
The name of the car translates as ‘clean and pure’ in Japanese and is designed to represent "the harmony" between driving pleasure and environmental and safety features.
Apparently, the designers imagined a city car cutting cleanly through an urban landscape, with water as the design theme when drawing up the plans.
On a more practical note, the Kiyora is equipped with Mazda’s next-generation four cylinder direct injection engine and features the company’s unique Smart Idle Stop System, allowing it to achieve excellent fuel economy and low CO2 emissions.
Its manufacturers are at pains to stress that the interior design and new functions support a youthful lifestyle.
Other cars to make their world debut at the event include the Mazda MX-5 facelift, the Mazda6 equipped with Mazda[curly]s newly developed MZR-CD 2.2-litre turbo diesel engine, and the Mazda2 powered by a MZ-CD 1.6-litre diesel.
