Mazda's given a name to the crossover concept vehicle it will put on display at the Moscow auto show next month. It's "Kazamai," which means "swirling crosswinds" in Japanese.
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.
