Last month, however, Mazda achieved its best April since 1995 with 26,195 vehicles sold, an increase of 8.6% year-over-year and Mazda now expects strong sales through the balance of the year, said Robert Davis, MNAO vice president of operations.

Mazda will put the Kodo design language of the Minagi concept into production with the new CX-5.

Mazda’s Minagi concept vehicle made quite a splash at the Geneva Motor Show, earlier this year, which is good news for the maker considering the underlying design theme is set to return in a downsized crossover vehicle to be dubbed the CX-5.

Minagi served to preview an all-new design language Mazda calls Kodo, the soul of motion.  It “captures the energy of the moment,” explained Mazda CEO Takashi Yamanouchi, following the show car’s debut.

Back at the preview, Minagi was described as a “pure design exercise,” but while the Mazda CX-5 won’t be an absolute replica, it will carry over many of the basic elements of the concept crossover.

We’ll get a better look when the new CUV makes its formal debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show, this coming autumn.
