I was expecting a bigger exterior change O.o . Regardless, I do like the new headlights, and the grille! That interior.. that's stellar though! I like how the floating display is more integrated vs the 3 too . I'm curious how different the non-GT trim will be though....

Looks like they got LED headlights, nice, I wonder if the lower trims will get the same. The chrome wing on the front looks thick, gotta see it in real life to really justify how it looks. Interior looks very promising

Agreed, the interior turned out better than I thought it could with the monolith display.

Is it just the lighting or is the main grill completely chrome now?

Mazda needs to learn one more design trick: More, skinnier slats in the grill = more luxury; less, thicker slats in the grill = more sporty. For how sporty the rest of the design is the grill should have at least 1 less slat maybe even two, that goes for 2014-2015s as well. JMO

Smile A step closer to Takeri...

Truth be told, the interior refresh is getting closer to the TAKERI (imo)...with some practical improvements:

It looks like (and reads like) they've gone to a brushed aluminum for all of that trim, and I agree it does look like the grille as well.

I also agree that it's a bit confused between sport or luxury lol

If the LED headlights are available in the lower trims, I wonder if it'll be possible to swap them in my 2015.

I doubt that. Considering headlight units are usually the first thing they "refresh" during the mid-cycle changes, I wouldn't bet that the Gen 3.5 would swap with the current model.

Just by looking at the images of the sales handbook, you can tell the headlight shape is different where it meets the end of the grill swoop.

Burns my Britches.

This is my first brand new car and they change it this drastically after two years? Not to mention the changes seem like changes I can't live without! Electronic parking brake?! Updated Nav?! Non moving armrest?! ARG!
