There have been rumors going around for a while about a new Mazda Concept car being revealed at the Moscow International Automobile Salon in Russia, and today the Mazda confirms the rumors and has released the initial 3 sketches of the yet unnamed show car.

Mazda has been working on several ideas in their new design direction called Nagare, or 'flow', and this latest concept uses the 'crosswinds' theme. Mazda has not released any details except that the concept car will be a sporty, compact crossover SUV.
