Mazda Vision Coupe is Concept Car of the Year

The Mazda Vision Coupe wins another accolade as it’s been judged as Concept Car of the Year at the 11th Car Design Night in Geneva, Switzerland.

The Car Design Night Geneva is held each year to coincide with the Geneva International Motor Show and attracts car designers from all over the world. The annual event is hosted by Car Design News, an online and print publication established in 1999 to serve the international automotive design community.

Attracting the most votes from a panel of 18 judges, many of whom are current design directors at various automakers, this is the second honor bestowed on the Vision Coupe after being named as “Most Beautiful Concept Car of the Year” in Paris last month.

“Following on from Paris last month, we are delighted once again to have Vision Coupe recognized with a global design award. And it's truly an honor to have this model, which aims to express the essence of Japanese aesthetics, applauded by some of the world's top car designers,” said Ikuo Maeda, Mazda's Managing Executive Officer in charge of Design and Brand Style. “The essence of this design concept will be evident in the next generation of Mazda cars, the first of which is due for launch in 2019.”

Revealed in Tokyo in 2017, Vision Coupe is a design vision model for the next generation of Mazda cars. It represents the next phase of KODO – Soul of Motion design, in which the expression of vitality and dynamism has evolved in pursuit of an essential Japanese aesthetic. The concept's flowing and deceptively simple “one motion” form speaks of elegance and high quality.

  2. Ripped off a classic Ferrari and Jaguar cars

    1. Even if you cover the front grill, it still doesn't look like a Ferrari or a Jaguar. The italians have delicate lines and curves that no other automaker can make while Jaguar has an English flair to its design that is lacking in the Mazda.

  3. More like an Aston
