New MX-5 on show at Tokyo event

Dealers got their first glimpse of the new-look Mazda MX-5 when the carmaker took the wraps off a concept car at this month's Tokyo motor show.

The two-seater Ibuki looks set to replace the UK's best selling roadster in 2006 and was just one of a host of new models revealed. Nissan unveiled a concept car called the C-Note, which hints heavily at the design of the next Almera. It will use the new Renault Megane platform, and shares styling cues with that model, including a toned down but still funky rear end.

Styling was an important point for Subaru as it unveiled a range of concept cars all clearly displaying the new family face. Crucial to the design is a dominant front grille that aims to capture memories of the group's aircraft heritage with a fuselage-shaped centre.
