The Mazda KUSABI '03 is a Concept Car produced by Mazda. It first appeared in Gran Turismo 4 Prologue, and has returned in every main game since, with the exception of Gran Turismo Sport.

In-game descriptionEdit

"A multi-purpose sportscar with an innovative form and versatile utility."


The Mazda Kusabi concept car, unveiled at the 2003 Tokyo Motor Show, was billed as a "daily compact sports car". It was built on the platform of the Japan-market compact car called the Demio. The Kusabi featured a 3-door hatchback body measuring 149.6 inches long, 68.8 inches wide and 50.7 inches high. The car's design was truly unique, highlighted by a reverse-wedge shaped roof. Just as innovative was its "twin-lift hatchback" at the rear. Unlike normal hatches that only open upward, the two halves of the twin-lift hatchback can also open out like the wings of a butterfly, allowing easy access and storage.

Inside, the seats were laid out in 2+2 form. What was notable here was when passengers climbed into the back seats, the top halves of the front seats fold back into the cabin. While the Kusabi was a bit tall for a sports car, it possessed the kind of aggressive styling that exuded performance.

Powering the car was a variation of the MZR. The 1.3-liter DOHC inline-4 had upgrades like dual sequential valve timing, a supercharger, and a 4-barrel electric throttle that accounted for 148 HP. It came mated to a 6-speed automatic with manual shifting mode. The suspension system was similar to the Demio's, with struts up front and a torsion beam at rear. It made for an agile car, one that had the utility of a family wagon.
