Re: Mazda's "Tribute" to the Vertrek Concept? Meet Mr. Minagi
I don't believe so...given the recent developments of Ford and Mazda separating ways. Ford has reduced its stake in Mazda to around 10%...leaving Mazda now independent and under the control of a Fund Manager it has established for itself. Ford and Mazda may share some technology and perhaps could share the platform if the concept was under development prior to Ford and Mazda parting ways...but I imagine that since there are mules of a sub CX-7 crossover being testes already in the US and abroad, I'd imagine that this new Mazda CX-5 would be built on a modified or shortened CX-7 platform...or more likely...based off of the current Mazda 3 platform. The future Kuga and Escape are being built off of the Ford Focus...so the Mazda 3 would be a good starting point for the CX-5.

Those are my two cents...what's yours?
