07 Mar 2018 | 11.23 am

The Mazda Vision Coupe has been named ‘Concept Car of the Year’ at the Geneva Motor Show.

The panel of 18 judges included several individuals currently serving as design directors at global car manufacturers. The Mazda coupe was also named ‘Most Beautiful Concept Car’ recently at the 2018 Festival Automobile International in Paris.

Mazda design director Ikuo Maeda commented: “It’s truly an honour to have this model, which aims to express the essence of Japanese aesthetics, applauded by some of the world’s top car designers. The essence of this design concept will be evident in the next generation of Mazda cars, the first of which is due to be launched in 2019.”

Maeda added that the coupe design represents the next phase for Mazda’s KODO – Soul of Motion designs. “The concept’s flowing and deceptively simple one motion form speaks of elegance and quality,” he said.
