Mazda KABURA and All New Mazda CX-7 to be Exhibited at the North American International Auto Show
Submitted by Dan Mazzella on Tuesday, December 13, 2005 - 7:58am

Mazda Motor Corporation will showcase the world premiere of the Mazda KABURA compact sports coupe concept vehicle, and the all-new Mazda CX-7, a crossover sports-utility-vehicle (SUV), at the 2006 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), to be held in Detroit from Sunday, January 8 through Sunday, January 22, 2006.

Joining them on the Mazda stand will be a Mazda5 Hydrogen RE Hybrid concept vehicle -- powered by a RENESIS hydrogen rotary dual-fuel-engine that can use hydrogen or gasoline, and offering both Zoom-Zoom driving pleasure and outstanding eco-friendliness. A Mazda Tribute Hybrid will also be shown.

Mazda will hold a press briefing at the Mazda stand from 5:05 to 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, January 8, 2006.

Mazda KABURA, a compact sports coupe, is a concept car designed at Mazda's design center in California. KABURA is the third design concept vehicle from Mazda following Mazda SASSOU (designed at Mazda's European Design Center) and Mazda SENKU (designed at Mazda's Yokohama R&D Center near Tokyo), each reflecting the global influences that Mazda chief designers can draw from.

With a compact body, the Mazda KABURA sports coupe is a vehicle that combines the pleasures of sports car driving with functionality. With a rear-drive powertrain that elicits dynamic styling and a wide range of utilities on board, it was designed for first new car buyers who love to drive. KABURA is a concept car that embodies the highest elements of Mazda's Zoom-Zoom ethos.
"KABURA" is a Japanese term taken from "Kabura-ya", an arrow that makes a sound when fired and was used to signal the start of a battle. The "first arrow into battle" depicts Mazda's spirit of pursuing unique and exciting ventures.
