Oh, and Mazda will also use the show to reveal a second concept (pictured below), which doesn't preview any specific upcoming model, but which does apparently provide a foretaste of some of Mazda's future styling ideas.
Mazda says one of the concepts will herald its next-generation products, while the other will signal the direction of the company's future design language.
Mazda has since released a few teasers for the concept and it does look like it is an upgraded version of the current Mazda 3.
Mazda isn't describing it as such, but the proportions and design of the "product concept" points toward it being the basis of the next Mazda 3.
As the power plant of a sedan Mazda 6 will deliver the updated powertrains from the family SkyActive-X, they will be the first production engines that work on compression.
In 2019-2020 year, Japanese manufacturers are planning to bring to market a sedan Mazda 6 new generation.
Looks like "Zoom-Zoom" fans have much to be excited about as Mazda has announced and teased two new concept cars on its way to the Tokyo Motor Show later this month. "Among them is Skyactiv-X, a gasoline engine that realises a long-held dream of the global automotive industry".
The brand's Skyactiv-X powertrain is a main focus of its Tokyo motor show effort this year, with the as-yet-unnamed concept precursor to the next 3 being built on Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture.
