Mazda is presenting Kabura, a design concept that ventures beyond the compact sports coupe norm to explore several fresh ideas that could appear in future production models. The Kabura incorporates the front-engine, rear-drive layout universally admired by driving enthusiasts and long delivered by Mazda’s MX-5 and rotary-engined sportscars.

The Kabura is a small sports coupe with which it shares many styling features. The most striking feature of the Kabura is the dynamic front end. The rear of the Kabura is small and tidy with minimal overhangs and athletic arches which advertise the cars rear wheel drive layout, and help cover the 20′ rear wheels. The glass roof hides a small rear spoiler/air-vent at the rear.

A standard left-side door provides access to the driver’s cockpit and the rear jump seat. The right side is a wholly different and purposely asymmetrical arrangement. Removing the glovebox and minimizing the instrument panel allowed designers to shift the front passenger six-inches ahead of the driver’s seating position. The second passenger, sitting in tandem behind the right-front passenger, enjoys approximately the same leg, shoulder, and headroom.
