Pictures, Reviews and Information on the Wonderful World of Japanese Concept Cars


The Nagare concept was first shown at the 2006 LA Show, and was the first of a series of concepts to be shown over the next couple of years which all follow and advance the same styling theme and refining the same new design language that Mazda named after this car.

Nagare (meaning flow in Japanese) is a reference to the flowing lines and creases along the flanks that give a natural yet taut feel to the styling of the concept car. Whether these complex creases are something that can actually be mass produced in production cars rather than just shown in concept form is unknown, but the more basic shapes and themes are expected to be seen on updates of the current production models.

The designer was quoted as saying “we redefined basic proportions and the idea of driving without losing the emotional involvement. Mazda’s driving spirit will be enhanced and intensified by Nagare.”
