MAZDA CHANGE DESIGN THEME FROM `NAGARE`
TO `ALFA ROMEO`
Mazda’s Nagare design theme is soon to be put to rest. Peter Birtwhistle, Mazda of Europe’s British design boss has confirmed that the design language for the current Mazda look is set to be replaced very soon. The Nagare design theme, created by former design chief Laurens van den Acker, has only been applied in full to one production car, the Mazda5. According to Birtwhistle, Mazda’s new design chief, Ikuo Maeda, is aiming for a more “Japanese Alfa Romeo” look.
