Mazda Shinari Concept debuts new face of the brand in style!
Looking at the exterior, it's easy to tell that the Shinari shares little in common with Mazda's recent designs, although like almost every sedan built today, it has similarities to vehicles from other brands. It's almost as if the Aston Martin Rapide and a Mazda RX-8 cued up some Barry White, enjoyed a romantic evening and the Shinari came out nine months later. That's obviously a compliment, as the Rapide is a stunningly beautiful car and the RX-8 -- even this far into its lifecycle -- is still a looker. However, the Shinari has a much more complicated design, with more intersecting lines and a surface area that's constantly moving and changing depending on the lighting.
While the exterior is certainly a departure from previous designs, the interior is perhaps the most surprising aspect of the Shinari. Easily the most attractive and stylish interior we've seen in a Mazda (concept or not), it's swathed in authentic aluminum trim, leather-covered surfaces and double stitching at nearly every turn and twist. We're again drawn to the Aston Martin Rapide comparison, especially with the design of the deep rear bucket seats. The gauges, modeled after popular watch designs, up the class quotient and the massive glass roof helps make the interior feel open and airy.
But more than the tech and the attention to detail, it's the Shinari's overall cohesion that impresses the most. Unlike other pie-in-the-sky concepts, the Sinari is a smart, well executed styling exercise that should be a solid design platform for future models. The muscular lines should translate well into a production car, and customers will always appreciate a more sophisticated interior.
We sure like the sound of a Mazda RX-9!

Future 2013 Mazda RX-9 released by TopSpeed-presented by Maple Shade Mazda: www.msmazda.com
Mazda recently made the decision to halt production of it's Famous, Rotary powered RX8 sports platform vehicle. The goofd news is Mazda has chosen to fill the void in their lineup with a new model: the Mazda RX-9.
Built on the MX-5 chassis, the new RX-9 will follow along Mazda's new "Kodo - Soul of Motion" design language as seen on the Shinari concept unveiled in 2010. The two-door coupe will weigh no more than 2,755lbs and will feature Mazda's 16X rotary engine paired with an electric Supercharger. This engine will mated to a twin clutch, two pedal six-speed tranny and will deliver 300hp. However, the increase in horsepower from the RX8's 232 to the RX-9's 300 won't make for frequent trips to the gas station. This revised engine is said to improve fuel economy by 20%.
The official debut will be sometime in 2012 with sales to begin sometime in 2013. Yes, we know that's quite a bit of time to wait for the actual car, but at least we have these renderings fresh off the artist's desk to tide everyone over until that time.
