They went from a smiley face to the Joker! It certainly does look good from that angle but it's not really showing much.

Maybe the rest of it looks just as good and they'll bring a diesel wagon.

Hey, it's an early photo, I'm trying to get my dreaming in quick before I find out the reality!

wait till later. Once you see the wheel gap and way-not-aggressive-enough-offset wheels that most midsize sedans have, it won't look as hot ;)

I see hints of Mazda Furai in that front view.

I think it will be stunning. But I believe that from a drivers pov the first gen still will be the best. Its that front suspension and feel. They nailed it on the first gen the second gen disapoint me.

looks-wise the speed6 still looks the best. They got the wheels nice and flush, dual exhaust, and the more muscular hood.

I hope it is great looking because Mazda is tanking due butt ugly design.

This, along with how many rear ends get mucked up, means that this doesn't really tell us anything.

CC

I saw it too.

And for me thats a good thing. CC was the coolest looking thing VW made over the last few years. But i think its a trick of the eye and it wont look anything like a CC once i see more pictures of it. Just something in the shape of the front fascia from that one angle is reminiscent.

Hopefully it comes with the diesel they keep talking about.

I think it looks more Volvo than anything else. Not to say it is a Volvo clone - but the feel is there.

Wheels and tires are almost always the first thing I do to a car. I don't really care what the stockers look like... they're not gonna be there long.

I see that too, minus the slash. But recent Volvo's are pretty good looking cars, IMO, so if it emulates that it may be good. But I still say this photo doesn't tell much.

Edit - Jav just popped in those photos as I was typing. The front does look a little like a Volvo, and the back looks a little like a Sonata. But overall I'd have to say it's pretty good looking.

It is decent. Not as nice looking as the new Fusion though.

I also saw that in it, I was trying to figure out the cross, it's like an S60 + a CC

It looks great. Way better than the current model.

I'm interested to see what the interior looks like and how they'll price it.

We really like our '05 and would consider this one after the used models hit the market in 2015 ish.

I hope hope hope hope hope that those red tinted tail lights above are coming to the US. But they will probably screw us with retarded clear ones.
