Mazda has released the first renderings of the Minagi concept, ahead of its debut at the Geneva Motor Show.

Featuring the new Kobo design language, the Minagi has sweeping character lines, chrome accents, and a grille that ties into the headlights. While Mazda is staying mum on specifics, they stated the crossover is "equipped with a SKYACTIV engine and SKYACTIV transmission fitted to a SKYACTIV-Body and chassis that merge comprehensive weight reduction with the assurance of ample safety features."

Despite being labeled as a concept, the company hinted the Minagi "is the forerunner to the launch of Mazda's upcoming next-generation products." This seems to imply we could be looking at Mazda's version of the Ford Vertrek concept, which will go into production, possibly as the CX-5, to the replace the current Escape and Kuga.
