Mazda Sassou concept hints at new small hatch

The Sassou was designed at Mazda's European Design Centre in Frankfurt, Germany and Mazda says it is "a lightweight, urban vehicle for young, first car customers".

Mazda's latest concept is a sleek, three-door hatchback and comes with advanced interior systems such as a USB stick key and an ingenious rear seat morphing system.
