MAZDA VISION COUPE
This swoopy four-door coupe showcases the next generation of Mazda’s Kodo design language. The Vision Coupe has a strikingly simple form, with subtle curves that help present a visual transition between light and shadow. Mazda says that the design “strips away all non-essential elements to embody a less is more” aesthetic. Indeed – this concept coupe doesn’t even have door handles.
DAIHATSU DN COMPAGNO
With its pretty styling and trendy orange, Daihatsu’s design study for a compact four-door coupe looks like something for junior drivers. But the car is actually targeted at active seniors in ageing Japan and intended to “provide colourful support for their post-retirement lives”. Said support includes a choice of engine – either a turbocharged 1-litre 3-cylinder or a 1.2-litre hybrid drivetrain. Daihatsu had a Compagno model range back in the 1960s.
