Mazda Kiyora Concept Makes Global Debut

Posted on: 04 September 2008 by Gareth Hargreaves

The new Mazda Kiyora Concept has been launched ahead of its debut at the Paris International Motor Show.

Described as a lightweight, next generation, urban compact concept car the Kiyora - meaning ‘clean and pure’ in Japanese - is aimed at representing the harmony between driving pleasure and environmental and safety features.

The concept of “Kiyora” helped the designers to imagine a city car cutting cleanly through an urban landscape, with water as the design theme. Equipped with Mazda’s next generation 4 cylinder direct injection engine, the car achieves excellent fuel economy and low CO2 emissions.
