The Shinari concept introduces an all-new design language for Mazda
At the 2010 Paris Motor Show, Mazda displayed not only a new concept car - in the form of the Shinari - but also a whole new design language courtesy of their new head designer Ikuo Maeda.

The Mazda Shinari is a sleek looking four door sedan with crisp style lines and taut, muscular shape. The name of the new design style used on the Shinari is Kodo, which roughly translates as "soul of motion". Presumably that explains why the Shinari looks like it's doing 100mph when stood still.

Other styling elements of interest are the numerous brushed aluminum accents which adorn the Shinari's bodywork. In some areas these serve to highlight the cars contours, while in others they are also used to link components like the headlights and grille into one assembly.

Thankfully, the interior of the Mazda Shinari doesn't let down the good looks of the exterior. The driver is met with a rather focused set of gauges and a centre console which wraps up and over the dash to make the driver feel a little like they are in their own purpose-built cocoon. The materials used; dark brown and cream leather with exposed stitching, coupled with aluminium trim, give the interior a high class and high fashion feel.
