mazda tokyo auto salon 2015 7

Staying true to its ZoomZoom philosophy, Mazda is touted to reveal a number of souped-up models at the upcoming 2015 Tokyo Auto Salon in January. Held annually, the Tokyo Auto Salon centres on the aftermarket scene and is regarded as one of the top shows in regards to the tuning scene.

Of all the models said to make an appearance, it is perhaps the presence of the Global MX-5 Cup car that has got us most excited. The more obtainable (hah!) ensemble of exhibits include tricked-out versions of the Mazda CX-3, CX-5, 2 (Demio), 3 (Axela) and 6 (Atenza).

On the Mazda CX-3, changes include a lower ride height, bodykit with red accents, black multi-spoke wheels and a somewhat tasteful vinyl application fore and aft the front wheels. The same treatment is echoed on the Mazda 2 and 3 with the exception of the 3 being featured with an additional red colour scheme.

Utilising a more stealthy approach, the Mazda 6 and CX-5 will feature black paint, darkened alloys and subtle brushed elements. Presented as Prestige-style concepts, the 6 and CX-5 are rumoured to appear as limited edition models not long after the show, which opens its doors from January 9 to 11.
