I hope the final production version will not have such a big five point hole/grille or whatever they called it. Yes the the five point grille is Mazda's new trademark, but it's not like the bimmer's twin kidney where it has to be on every car on their lineup.
The trunk seems to be longer than the one they showed at Tokyo motor show; or maybe it's just my eye.
Looks like a keeper. IMO there is no doubt Mazda has/is stepping up their game.
This could be nothing, or it could be something very cool that rhymes with "MazdaNeed"...
