2006 L.A. Auto Show: Mazda Nagare Concept

Nagare1

Mazda says the Nagare — the word means “flow” in Japanese — Concept shows the future of Mazda’s design language. Translated from PR speak that means we might see some of the swooshes above the wheels or the grille treatment or who knows what from the Nagare on a future Mazda production vehicle. We’d buy that if the Nagare wasn’t so hard to decipher.

Perhaps the severe rearward slope of the windshield and cabin will be the flow we see in future models but otherwise we’re a bit dumbfounded. Plus that sharp, front beak doesn’t look like it would pass safety standards that look out for pedestrians these days. This could impale someone. More photos below.
