Nagare is done. After the 5, it’s highly unlikely that there will be another nagare car. Mazda has moved on
Mazda’s Peter Birtwhistle gives Mazda fans the brand’s best news in a long time [via AutoExpress]: the crazy design language inspired by the Nagare show car of 2006, will die with its first victim, the 2011 Mazda5. Mazda’s new direction?
[Becoming] more like a Japanese Alfa Romeo, producing cars which are great to drive, but crucially that also have the right premium feel, particularly inside.
Great idea. It would have been even better, say, five years ago. Better late than never…
