This latest instalment is a lightweight next generation urban compact concept dubbed the Kiyora - meaning 'clean and pure' in Japanese.
Engineered as a self-proclaimed harmony between driving pleasure and environmental and safety features, the Kiyora debuts Mazda's long-term technology development vision of "Sustainable Zoom-Zoom".
It is based on an all-new platform designed to minimise weight and maximise safety, powered by a next-generation four-cylinder direct-injection engine.
Joining the Kiyora concept in Paris will also be three world premieres from Mazda, with the new face lifted MX-5 and two new diesel variants added to the current range.
Mazda's newly developed MZR-CD 2.2-litre turbo diesel engine will now feature in the Mazda6 line-up whilst the Mazda2 receives a MZ-CD 1.6-liter diesel.
