Introduced at the 2015 and 2017 Tokyo Motor Show respectively, they anticipated the new elegance and yet more pronounced minimalist aesthetic of recent interpretations of Kodo design. Dynamic and emotional forms are achieved by shaving off any unnecessary elements to bring out the very essence of beauty and motion. By eliminating character lines, for example, an empty space is created on the vehicle’s side panels that functions as a blank, endlessly changing canvas for the play of light and shadow – a “less is more” aesthetic that is strongly informed by Mazda’s Japanese heritage.
