Parkers Pick – Mazda Takeri

  • What is it? A concept car that hints at the replacement for the Mazda6.
  • Vital stats and facts: Based on Mazda’s new SKYACTIV platform, the flash exterior hides an efficient diesel engine.
  • Why would you buy it? It’s a stylish saloon with an efficient powertrain that should appeal to both fleet and private buyers looking for low costs and something a little different. See what sister title Car Magazine thought of the Takeri here.
  • Why wouldn’t you? You might not fancy being all that ‘different’, and the SKYACTIV platform hasn’t been proven in the real world yet. Also, it’s not for sale.
  • Prices and launch date: Not available at this time

What else is on the stand?

Mazda also showed the CX-5 crossover, which Parkers has previously reviewed, and a special edition version of the MX-5.
