      Did they change anything besides the nose? I prefer the smiley face.

      I think, if this is how it's gonna look........ that this is the best example of Mazda's latest design philosophy. This looks really good.

      All I see is a squished CX-5.

      this is a heavily chopped pic of the new 6. If the next 3 does indeed look close to this, it won't be a bad thing.

      It is a Car and Driver produced/commisioned rendering. As such, it is outside speculation and not the work of Mazda.

      Will there be a concept version of this coming up? The 6 and CX-5 concepts were so close to the production versions.

      Looks good and expected of KODO design. I wonder if it still rusts though.

      I would have expected Mazda to show the new 3 at L.A.

      Since we haven't heard anything concrete yet, I'm guessing we'll have to wait until at least New York.

      Not bad. I think the 3 will come out 2014 spring time as a 2015 model for North America. Mazda has followed that for the CX-5 and now the 6.

      Yeah, but it looks great!

      The current frontal just doesn't work for me. Not even so much the smile (which I hate), but the black plastic teeth protector hiding the bumper beam.

      I love the new CX5 and its face looks great here.

      Word has it the current gen 3 will be the last Mazdaspeed due to the company promoting all this sky active stuff. Anyway this car could look pretty good with the Mazdaspeed trim/ drivetrain.

      A more appropriate way to look at it would be that the Mazdaspeed3 will not be available immediately following the redesign, but may be reintroduced later with a slightly different formula.

      The DISI engine is done.

      I agree with a different formula. I always felt that the Speed 3 was a Japanese Caliber. Much nicer, but still just raw power.

      I like it a lot (better than the new Golf actually)... Should be interesting to see if it actually turns out looking like that, and if the rear looks less goofy than the current one.
