9. Shinari Concept

Modern Mazdas have an unmistakable design, and truly stand out from the pack. Look at the Mazda6 for example, which has a cohesive, sculpted look as if the car was made with a single, malleable piece of sheetmetal.

At a time where so many family sedans look so similar, the Mazda6 looks sharp and classy. It’s the Shinari concept that set up this design language, showcasing the look of the current crop of Mazdas way back in 2010.

It was the first time we heard about the “Kodo” style from Mazda. Translated to the soul of motion, the Shinari concept set up the mindset for the new era of Mazda, shying away from the smiley, friendly look of past models and looking far more aggressive and luxurious.

    Oh, come on. The RX-7 or RX-8 is the number one Mazda for sure….

  • ColumWood

    RX-8? No way. A great car… but for it’s time it was nowhere near the level of the RX-7.

    I agree with the Mazda 323 GTX. Could you imagine a Mazdaspeed 3 GTX? AWD? Damn….

    No B Series?!

    The RX-7 was a great car, but it wasn’t a game changer. The Miata changed how the game was played in the small roadster class and dominates it to this day. When there are entire race series’ dedicated to the car and it holds the Guinness World Record for the most popular roadster ever, no question it is Mazda’s shining beacon.
