The CX3 designer has clearly left.

Indeed, I really like the CX3 but it is simply too-small, the CX4 is perfect but sadly not brought here. The CX5 is already a bit of a bus but quite nice, I still think this is an improvement though.

For some reason that reminds me of Boba Fett's helmet.

I'm a big fan of the Current CX-5 looks wise and this is nearly as nice but with a better interior. Not a bad job to these eyes.
Blarno

Yawn.

Does look a bit better but the grille seems somewhat excessive.

It only felt like yesterday that the first CX-5 was launched though.

Nicer looking than most of its type, but my reaction is a bit like Blarno's

Ditto. I actually went and looked at one and really liked it, too, until I had a look in the boot and saw how tiny it was. I have two dogs, but only one of them would've fitted in the Mazda.

Never heard of the CX4. I'm off for a Google!
Frank Bullitt

I don't think the dogs will be too chuffed!

That's a really smart upgrade of the current CX-5 shape. The interior looks good too - Mazda seem to be on a roll at the moment.

Especially about having to move to China. Might end up on a menu!

It's an odd looking thing, isn't it. Sort of a jacked up Mazda 6 hatchback. Back on topic, though, I think I prefer the outgoing CX-5 to this new one. This one is a bit on the bland side.

This.

Tad bland but agree Mazda have got their styling guru's working well

Because it's red and shiny?

Pink and bulbous.

Nothing to see here.

Erm, is it to ignore posts about it so as to not lend them any credence?

Very good!

I thought that the first rule was not to mention it in any other of the forums, so that those not in the know never knew of its existance......

I don't know what the Doc is going on about Chris.
