The new concept bears the newest evolution of the bodywork seen on Mazda's latest run of concepts. In mechanical terms, the Kazamai sports a direct-injection engine and four-wheel drive.
It's expected that the Kazamai is the forerunner for a new compact crossover spun from the new Fiesta/Mazda2 platform, to be slotted beneath the Mazda CX-7, and named CX-5 in production.
Mazda says the new car's designed specifically with the Russian market in mind, and with younger SUV owners "who have a strong sense of style."
The Moscow show opens to the media on August 26.
