The Mazda Sassou ('sa-so'), was a small, lightweight, three-door hatchback powered by a turbocharged, three-cylinder, 1.0-liter MZR DISI (direct injection Spark Ignition) gasoline engine. Combined with evolved mazda design language and a unique interior concept, the Mazda Sassou was a glimpse into the future at where Mazda might be heading with its B-car.

The Sassou concept is a lightweight, urban vehicle for young, first time car buyers that makes everyday city driving fun, highly practical, economical and aiming for clean emissions.

Designed at Mazda's design center in Frankfurt, Germany, the name "Sassou" is a Japanese term that means having a positive state of mind, of looking ahead with optimism to the future. And with a lightweight, compact and stylish exterior, the Mazda Sassou certainly embodies this. It is an advanced interpretation of Mazda's design language that employs the latest in aerodynamic techniques to hint at the agility and fun-to-drive attributes so typical of the brand.

IThe Sassou mixes these attributes with a unique use of exterior and interior materials and hidden features based on the "Shoji" principle. Shoji screens are thin Japanese doors made of ricepaper that allow you to see the outline of what is behind without seeing the details. The Mazda Sassou concept has attributes that are hidden within the body and are suddenly revealed by an illumination system that makes the car seem to spring to life in a way that is appealing and surprising.
