Mazda TAKERI - a concept of Mazda's next generation CD saloon - made its world debut at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show. This concept car exploits Mazda's latest manipulation of Mazda's design language 'KODO - Soul of Motion' and is fully equipped with Mazda's breakthrough SKYACTIV Technology, ultimate efficiency for a vehicle without hybrid technologies. The name TAKERI is derived from a Japanese word meaning 'masculine'.
TAKERI inherits the four-door sports coupe vision of the Mazda SHINARI concept car, combining speed and excitement with saloon car styling. Evolving from the Mazda SHINARI, Mazda TAKERI exhibits styling that reflects the full nature of a Mazda mid-sized saloon, with striking balance and a masculine sense of power.
