Mazda has released a teaser video of the next generation Mazda 6. The upcoming D-segment Zoom-Zoom sedan is pretty shy in this video – we only see shadowy glimpses of the car’s sexy design cues, all based on the Mazda Takeri Concept which we first saw at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show.

The Mazda Takeri Concept is the third interpretation of the Kodo (or Soul of Motion) design and is an evolution of the Mazda Shinari concept. The Kodo design has also spawned the Mazda Minagi concept, which went on to become the Mazda CX-5 SUV. Given how similiar the Mazda CX-5 is to the Mazda Minagi Concept, we’re expecting the production next generation Mazda 6 to be a real looker!
