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.
