It's Official: Mazda to Debut Minagi Crossover Concept at Geneva Show

A day after a couple renderings were leaked across the Internet, Mazda has confirmed that the Minagi concept is debuting at the Geneva Auto Show, which starts March 1.

The Minagi is more than just a concept created to showcase the new Kodo (Soul of Motion) design language. Mazda notes that the Minagi boasts plenty of Skyactiv technologies to keep the crossover -- and all future Mazdas -- as efficient as possible. The automaker claims the Minagi's body benefits from weight reduction efforts while still remaining safe. A Skyactiv engine will continue the industry-wide trend of downsizing engines while attempting to maintain similar power levels.
As for the concept itself, one of the most distinctive styling features is the piece of chrome trim on the bottom of the front grille that cuts the headlights in half. The Minagi's styling reminds us of the Ford Vertrek concept and the Kia Sportage (in back).
If you couldn't already tell the Minagi's purpose, Mazda says the concept "nimbly navigates a sprawling urban cityscape." Whether the production vehicle that's derived from the Minagi is called the CX-5 or CX-7, we're not sure. We'll have all the latest updates on Geneva show vehicles leading into March.
