The Frankfurt Motor Show sees the European premiere of the Mazda MX-Crossport, an exciting crossover concept that combines sports car styling motifs from the Mazda RX-8 with the more practical packaging of a Sport-Utility Vehicle (SUV) - taking Zoom-Zoom to an "advanced frontier" where Mazda Motor Corporation has never before ventured.
Mazda MX-Crossport has a low roofline compared to traditional small SUV-type vehicles and has an aggressive off-road look. Its sporty lower grille opening and powerful front bumper are similar to that of the Mazda RX-8 and achieve a unique balance between the evolutionary nature of the concept and Mazda’s recent sports car tradition.
The interior is surprisingly roomy with a "floating" seat construction, with each seat mounted to a "monorail" system in the floor, which allows slide adjustment fore and aft. Mazda MX-Crossport also features an advanced information and entertainment system, including a separate screen for the front passenger that shows four different views of the driving experience using five cameras.Published 1 September 2005
