Mazda to show new concept in Milan, hint at new design theme

Mazda Furai Concept

It was recently reported that Mazda is dropping its Nagare design theme, seen on the new 2011 Mazda5.

“Nagare is done,” said Peter Birtwhistle, Mazda of Europe”s British design boss. “After the 5, it”s highly unlikely that there will be another Nagare car. Mazda has moved on.”

According to recent reports Mazda’s new design chief Ikuo Maeda is ready to show the company’s next styling evolution, which will be launched in Milan in September. It is said that Maeda is aiming for a more “Japanese Alfa Romeo” look.

We’ll have to wait and see what Mazda has in the works.
