Here’s something to make all Mazda’s efforts in teasing the new 6 pointless! This is a rendering – and a fairly good one – of the new Mazda6, set for debut at the Paris Motor Show in September. It is the estate version, of course, but the front-end design is the same in the estate and sedan versions. And it’s looking pretty good. Not as lavish as the teasers led us to believe, but good nonetheless.
The new Mazda6 is based on a new design philosophy the Japanese car maker is applying these days called the Kodo. The main feature of this design language is the signature grille with Mazda logo in the middle and chrome surrounds. The side profile looks pretty simple and featureless. It is OK though. After all, there is only so much you can do with a family saloon. It should not be radical. Just subtle touches here and there are enough to make it look interesting.
Still, we hope the actual new Mazda6 will have more Takeri in its design that this speculative rendering.
