2018 Mazda CX5 Tease! Could Mazda 6 Pics Be Far Behind?

The Los Angeles International Auto Show is just weeks away, and Mazda is getting people ready with a sneak peek of the 2018 Mazda CX5. There are definitely some major changes in store just from the vague silhouette shown. The front end in particular looks completely reworked. Could this offer some hints about the future of the Mazda 6?

Check out the teaser shot here

Looks like a longer CX-3...maybe even carrying over the plastic fenders?

there was picture posted a while ago of an road test CX-5: http://media.caranddriver.com/images...-s-429x262.jpg

It looks more like a mini CX-9 .. I wonder if the rumors are true and it got a third row now, too.

I think it can go either way... either a stretched CX3 or a mini CX9. Hard to tell. I would doubt the CX5 would be a 3-row. That would be awful cramped and it'd pinch cargo space, which is a big gripe with the CX3.

Almost looks like a miniature Jag F-Pace, not that there's anything wrong with it ! I know looks is so subjective, but i always thought the gen 3 Mazda3 was not a very good looking car especially the deep 'U' grille, I am glad Mazda has reworked the front for 2017. On a side note, i recently saw the new KIA Forte5 or whatever the hatch is called as, it looks pretty good for the price, very european hatch like, not surprising considering Hyundai/KIAs design chief Peter Schreyer was with Audi before.

Mazda recently said they want to go more "premium" with their models. So I think the CX-9 direction is likely what we will see with the new CX-5. I am more interested to see if they improved the 2.5L engine for the new CX-5.

“We’re driving ahead to ‘Mazda premium,’” Russell Wager, vice president-marketing at Mazda North American Operations, says at an automotive conference here.

The Japanese automaker has no intentions of debuting “a premium, pricey model,” he says. Instead, Mazda wants to reach out more to affluent consumers.

I am also thinking that the Mazda6 is next in line for a redesign, likely for fall 2017 as a 2018 model.
