The Takeri Concept signals what the next generation Mazda 6 sedan will look like. The CX-5 production version has been shown. Both models be offered with a diesel SkyActiv-D engine option. Mazda has officially stated that the CX-5 will offer it in the US.
The Mazda Takeri exploits Mazda’s new design language called “Kodo” which means “Soul of Motion”. The concept itself will be showing off a full array of Mazda SkyActtiv technologies , including the efficient and powerful new SkyActiv-D clean diesel engine.
