What’s Mazda’s KODO: Soul of Motion?

What’s Mazda’s KODO: Soul of Motion?

    

When our clients here at Steet Ponte Mazda peruse out lot, one of the first things they notice is the gorgeous design of Mazda’s vehicles. We know you’ll be in the same boat when you visit us here at 5074 Commercial Drive in Yorkville, NY. Until then, continue reading below to see how this manufacturer embeds an artistic spirit into each of their rides.

KODO: Soul of Motion

When a Mazda turns onto the street, folks from near and far automatically turn their heads. That’s because these vehicles are alluringly designed with an aura of spirit and personality. The engineers at this manufacturer are given free reign to develop designs that immediately appeal to the senses and evoke an emotional reaction. The philosophy that drives it all is called KODO: Soul of Motion. The goal is to create a sensory experience that captures movement, even at a standstill. Take a look at the Mazda3 Sedan, the Mazda CX-5, Mazda Miata, or any other set of wheels in Mazda’s lineup, and it’s hard to argue that they accomplished what they set out to do. With swooping body lines that dip and rise from the front to the back, these vehicles truly set themselves apart.

Craftsmanship

It goes without saying that creating new car designs is a long process. This is especially true for Mazda because they use more traditional methods than other manufacturers. While other engineers develop their new vehicles using 3D models and are aided by computers, folks at Mazda are committed to using clay. In fact, they use more clay than any other carmaker. The benefit of this is that it allows for a more tactile experience while allowing the shape of the design to slowly reveal itself to the artist. This organic process offers a greater degree of flexibility, which is why Mazda vehicles are always full of surprises.

Radiant Colors

When you swing by our dealership and examine some of our Mazdas for yourself, you’ll see that the same amount of attention that goes into the overall shape of these cars goes into the finer details as well. As an example, the collection of premium paints developed by Mazda are made with absolute diligence. Together, the color designer and maser painter create shades and then ensure that they transition seamlessly when applied to cars. When you visit us, be sure to ask one of our associates about the Soul Red Crystal Metallic color. As soon as you see it for yourself, you’ll realize that all the work that goes into it pays off in big ways!

If anyone asks you “What’s Mazda’s KODO: Soul of Motion?” you’ll have the answer. The best way to experience this design philosophy for yourself is to visit Steet Ponte Mazda during our accommodating business hours.

Just purchased my beautiful Mazda 3 Fully loaded. Bose system. Car starter. Moon roof!!!! Joel was nothing but professional. Soooo Funny. And catered to all my needs. Matt was new and I was his first sale. Hopefully I didn’t drive him too crazy. Ha! They took the time to explain to me all the features on the car, and made sure I left with a smile on my face.Definitely recommend Mazda. Joel. Matt. Best ride ever! And I have owned many cars all my life. This is my favorite!

Well I got to buy my first Mazda from Shane. I couldn’t be happier with the way he helped me pick out the right car for me. He was not pushy at all. He gave great advise. I love my new 2017 Mazda CX-5 If you want to buy a great car, go see Shane and the wonderful team at Steet Ponte Mazda. Thank you guys!

I brought my car in for a recall that should have taken a couple hours but the technician had trouble taking my dash apart (not his fault my car is old). The service advisor was quick to let me know that they had encountered an issue and offered to give me a free service loaner because they would need my car overnight. They even kept my 4 year old occupied while I moved his car seat from my vehicle to the other. When i returned to pick up my vehicle I was surprised by how clean it was. they didn't just hose it off, they also vacuumed, wiped down every surface, and threw out all of the garbage inside of it. I was beyond impressed.
