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.

According to the carmaker the Sassou is definitely an indication of what to expect from a forthcoming small hatchback. Mazda also says that it needs a competitive model in this segment.

The name "Sassou" is a Japanese term that was chosen because it means having a positive state of mind, of looking to the future with optimism.
