That's not a typo! You've read correctly: 2027. We were introduced to two new concepts that, obviously, are more of a styling exercise than real, functional vehicles. Designers always like to foresee the future and give us a little glimpse. Their vision and their creations are often amusing. My colleague John LeBlanc already told you about the Acura Advanced Sedan Concept.

In the same mold, the new futuristic Mazda Nagare sedan was unveiled by Laurens Van den Acker, head of the automaker's California Design Center. The Nagare, which means "fluid", strikes with its slender lines. When looking at the car from the three-quarter angle, one can appreciate the flowy, wavy lines. The taillights look like a delicate woman's hand with long fingernails. The Nagare is without question one of the best executed concepts shown at the L.A. Auto Show.
