New York: Mazda Takeri Concept presented image

The Japanese based automaker Mazda has recently presented the Takeri Concept at the 2012 New York Auto Show.

After the Mazda Takeri Concept was officially presented to the public at the Tokyo Motor Show in late 2011 and at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show last month, the model is once again highlighted, this time with the company bringing it to the New York Auto Show. Developed around words like SKYACTIV Technology, and Kodo, the “Soul in Motion”, the Mazda Takeri Concept is actually a preview to the next generation of the Mazda6 which will make its debut this autumn, in Paris.

The Mazda Taker Concept exploits the company’s new design language, Kodo, Soul of Motion, and it brings a new level of strength and allure to the model. As a small reminder, the Mazda Takeri, which was originally presented in Tokyo last year, was powered by the company’s 2.2 liter SKYACTIV diesel engine, which was mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The model is 4,850 mm long, 1,870 mm wide and 1,430 mm tall.

“When Taker is adopted with the SkyActiv 2.2 diesel engine, six-speed automatic transmission, modified i-Stop and i-Eloop, we can achieve the fuel efficiency of a hybrid, as well as outstanding dynamic performance and a cruising distance of 1500 km”, said the vehicle team manager at Mazda Motor Europe, Uwe Kracht.
