i showed my wife this picture of the new 6:
first thing she said was, "it looks like an altima."
i really love the look, and it definitely looks better in real photos compared to renderings. however, the same is true for the new fusion, which looks good, has better tech and is also available with their new 240hp 2.0T...
if i get serious about getting either of these cars in a couple years then it will probably come down to driving dynamics and my preference of fuel economy vs power

As a B5.5 Passat owner- I am even amused how this Mazda thread got hijacked for Passat love .
TCL- make up your mind. For years you have ragged on the Camcord manufacturers to quit making boring cars. Now Mazda is stepping up to the plate- with good looks reminiscent of an Austin Martin or Jaguar- but with Japanese reliability and perhaps Mazda DNA of good handling..... and let me understand this - you scoff at it?
Here is a car that underwent a Jenny Craig diet , is sexy as hell, will handle well and quite possibly will come with an amazing diesel when gas prices are going crazy.
There should be so many TCLrs lining up at the next car show to circle jerk at the 2014 Mazda 6 revolving car platform that Kleenex stock would skyrocket.

Well, when you don't really care much about cars, I'm sure you don't pay attention to some details. You must figure that since both designs are similar in size and overall shape, that they must be the same car.
I don't care much for flowers, so when I see a red flower, I think its a ... umm forget. That red flower everybody knows. I'm tuned to reality, but don't know sh!t about flowers. I guess it would be the same with cars for someone who doesn't really care.
The new 6 destroys the Passat in styling. I just hope its sexy wheel arches won't turn into a pile of rusty carnage like the older 3s have. But honestly, it's one of the most attractive family sedan on the market. Drivetrains are interesting too, but lack of a wagon kinda sucks.
Given the amount of new subaru legacy outback that I see on the roads in LA and the new jetta wagon, and the allroad I dont understand why Mazda doesn't bring the wagon. I see a lot more wagons lately.

I agree about the interior. For such a large car, the area surrounding the driver seems very intimate (in a good way) and the dash is simply laid out. It's refreshing and reminds me somewhat of old BMW. I just wonder how it looks without the NAV screen. Hopefully better than the Fusion.
