Looks nice! I like the elimination of the front fender bulges. That was the worst part of the RX8, and shouldn't have made it to the Mazda 6 in the first place.

Chris K. I agree. I hope the production 6 borrows heavily from this design but this time Mazda needs to make sure to have good MPG as well as more aggressive advertising. The last 6 was, not bad looking and was unagruably much more exciting to drive than a Camry but, was let down by sub-par gas milage (esp on V6 model) and it seemed no budget was set aside to marketing it.

If Mazda has any sense they will take this directly to production as it sits, minus the weird outside rear view mirrors...this is a great looking car, and it looks better, to me, than the Altima, certainly the Camry, and any indications, probably the Accord.

Yeah, the last 6 was a great car. I didn't like the front arches, but it had a nice rigid chassis, the V6 had plenty of power, it had an enormous trunk, and you got a bunch of tech goodies for a decent price. I'm a bit of an AWD fanatic or I might have bought one.

This looks great, a wake up call to bland midsized sedans like the Camry.

Pure Japanese Design, see the japanese letters how beautifully matches to the bak end design, Looks like a Kawasaki Ninja version of a Car. Feels the quality. Hope Mazda will keep the same paint and material quality. The Japanese companies should keep their design studios in Japan. See how bad the Californian studios of of some companies spoiled the original Japanese design elements from nineties and failed..
Jap design should be Jap and European should european.. no mixing will do good like races.
