Mazda Kiyora Concept World Premiere in Paris
By KBB.com Editors on September 5, 2008 8:43 AMMaking an addition to its string of wavy concepts, Mazda will debut its Kiyora concept at the upcoming Paris International Auto Show. The Kiyora is an aerodynamic city car that incorporates Mazda's Nagare design theme and is equipped with a four-cylinder, direct-injection engine with a new Smart Idle Stop System, which means high fuel economy and low emissions. Mazda made a point to make this small car lightweight to increase its fun factor, and the interior was designed to "support a youthful lifestyle," which most likely means fancy lighting and iPod connectivity. Not much else is known about the Kiyora at this time, but it should be interesting to see what Mazda's design theme looks like when the production cars are introduced.
