Mazda Shinari concept car Mazda Shinari concept car

Mazda has shown its hand with its evolving design philosophy by unveiling the Shinari four-door coupe concept car.

Embracing the current ‘Kodo’ design theme – a philosophy that replaced the much-used ‘Nagare’ design concept before it – the car flaunts an athletic, low-slung stance and some bold lines in contrast to other Mazda designs currently on offer.

Details of the car are sketchy at this stage, but the design is certainly reminiscent of a Maserati in the front-end and an Aston Martin in its overall profile. We’re a little disappointed at the appearance of the rear, which looks like it was borrowed from a Peugeot 406 sedan…!

Pop a rotary turbo engine under the bonnet, and we’d certainly be keen to have a further look!
