The modern sub-compact segment offers customers affordable cars with low emissions and fuel consumption-for less environmental impact in today's congested urban areas. Due to their small size, they are agile and easy to use, especially for normal day-to-day activities such as commuting and shopping.

The new Mazda Kusabi Design Concept introduces an innovative approach to this segment with an exciting four-seat sports car that is designed to make everyday driving a more enjoyable and sporty experience.

Overall, it looks rather aggressive, particularly with its rearward slanting, flat roof. In fact, many Mazda designers referred to the project as 'The Flattop' at an early stage in development, a reference to the popular early-1950s haircuts in the US.

With its 2+2 cabin layout, Mazda's new Kusabi sports car concept offers high levels of practicality for normal, everyday tasks. The car features a Twin-Lift Hatchback with a revolutionary new tailgate mechanism that allows easy access and use of the luggage compartment.

Mazda Kusabi Concept is equipped with a new 1.6-liter MZ-CD diesel engine with diesel particulate filter (DPF). It is mated to a six-speed Automatic Shift Manual transmission, optimised to allow the driver to get the most out of the engine's torque and power, adding to the sporty enjoyment of driving the car on a daily basis. It combines the excitement of manual shift driving with the comfortable feel of an automatic, and helps make the driver feel one with the car.
