Mazda has finally unveiled its next-generation subcompact concept model, called Mazda HAZUMI. The official premiere of the car happened at the Geneva Motor Show, and so far we have seen many (unofficially) leaked images of it.

Mazda HAZUMI embodies the four key pillars of Mazda's vehicle engineering; SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY, KODO—Soul of Motion design, Mazda Proactive Safety, and next-generation car connectivity system MZD Connect.

In the new HAZUMI the essence of KODO has been captured in a compact body. The concept car is fitted with the newly developed 1.5-litre SKYACTIV-D clean diesel engine which delivers great fuel economy without making a compromise on performance. The unit was also shown at the show.

Furthermore, the car offers enhanced safety. Precisely, the car has raised driving position and better field of view, and is equipped with i-ACTIVSENSE safety features. All in all, the HAZUMI Concept points directly towards brand's next generation B-segment car.
