Mazda Takeri Concept going to New York image

The Japanese based automaker Mazda has recently announced that the Takeri Concept will be officially presented over-seas, at the 2012 New York Auto Show on the 4th of April.

After being officially presented to the public, in a world premiere, in December 2011 at the 42nd edition of the Tokyo Motor Show, the Mazda Takeri Concept debuted in Europe too, at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, and now the vehicle is getting ready to be shown in the United States too, on the 4th of April, at the 2012 New York Auto Show. Even if the Mazda Taker Concept doesn’t seem to be that important for the over-seas audience, keep in mind that the concept car is actually previewing the next generation of the Mazda6.

The Mazda Takeri Concept is being described by the automaker using words like the regenerative braking system or SKYACTIV Technology, but one of the most interesting facts on the vehicle is that it’s actually exploiting the company’s new design language, KODO, Soul of Motion, and it brings a new level of strength and allure to the model. The Mazda Takeri Concept is powered by a SKYACTIV-D 2.2 engine, mated to a SKYACTIV-Drive six-speed automatic transmission, which is sending power to the front wheels. The vehicle is a four-door sedan, 4,850 mm long, 1,870 mm wide and 1,430 mm tall, with a wheelbase of 2,830 mm.
