Mazda's come a long way in the past 5-10 yrs. They've got so much quality into their cars. The CX-7 & CX-9 both have so many goodies,and they are really good vehicles.

Good to see a totally new design from the mazda stable..

seeing mazda come up with this state of the art engineering car, i wonder what are other companies upto.To me it looks like a car which one might have seen in the movie "Fifth Element" and Minority Report" ...Japanese are adept in such things.

Yes, it is Nagare and it is a concept car that would never see production

Quote:
According to the press release handed out on the show floor, Nagare examines light and shadow to convey a feeling of emotion even when the car is still.

Translation: Nagare is a design exercise and little more.

Mazda even admits as much, saying the Nagare represents a "design-first, engineer-later" philosophy rather than the usual form-follows-function approach. Among the engineer-it-later ideas is a possible hydrogen-fueled rotary engine developed from Mazda's current fleet of hydrogen-gasoline-fueled RX-8s already in service in Japan.
One thing I like about this concept is that Mazda has been making subtle changes to it and displaying at all every autoshow with a new name.

Nagare at LA auto show
Ryuga at Detroit
Hakaze at Geneva...
