Its name is a mashup of the Japanese words for leaf and wind, and its styling evokes the movement of sand on a shoreline — says its creators. But the Mazda Hakaze is no zen gardener's weekend project. It's the latest in Mazda's Nagare ("flow") concepts, whose designs draw from natural influences (see also Nagare and Ryuga). Designed at Mazda's European Design Center in Frankfurt, the Hakaze is a crossover SUV with a removable top, about the same size as a Mazda3 and powered by that car's 2.3-liter DISI four. Mazda says it could hearken a future compact crossover vehicle, potentially to compete with the Scion xB. We'll see this botanical specimen in Geneva.
