Looks like just a facelift/mid cycle refresh?

Looks cool but would never buy a rustda

Very nice, but I am guessing this is a far cry from production model

I think they may produce front like that, but the rear is probably concept only, as well as wider fenders

Toyota 86 or Subaru BRZ?

EDIT:
Downvotes?
Because I don't think it is "special" or "unique"? Mazdaites are sensitive people LOL.

It should be very close to this since we are only 12 months away the production model.

Grill is so plain jane but looks a billion times better than the new Acura's.

30% better fuel efficiency but then again, I wonder how long the HCCI engines will last.

Yeah, other than small things like the side mirrors and door handles, this model looks production ready and an evolution of Mazda's Kodo styling. I'm not a huge fan of hatchbacks, but this looks beautiful. Interested to see what the sedan will look like.

Nice! This reminds me a lot of how Alfa's look (or used to look).

This one is more of a concept that Mazda is showing at the Tokyo Auto Show today.

Looks OK but obviously it's just concept. Though, the back looks like it came off a Benz or a Ferrari and the front looks like a copy of Hyundai/Lexus. Mazda is loosing it's normal edge, wake up Engineers!

Looks inspired by an egg.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more memorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.
