Awesome pics, matt!! Thanks! I especially love the red hatch!!

If I were to call the refresh "mature," I would equate that more to "sophisticated" rather than to mean "old." I think it brings the look more in line with Audi than Honda or Nissan as others have postulated.

Although I like the aggressive look of my '04, it is borderline "ricey." (apologies to those offended by the term) I almost feel a bit immature driving it. Sort of a "hey, look at me!" feeling. I think the refresh, even for the US models, will tame that a bit and appeal to buyers turned off by the Fast and Furious stigma.

Those black-out "euro" taillights will be a hot item, though! RPM, you better get ready for the volume of group buy requests you're gonna get!!

Sophisticated... I was looking for that word. That&#39;s the right word for the refreshed Atenza/6!

I actually love the 03+ models. The 06 models look like they&#39;re for older peeps. This is why I got the 05 a few weeks ago. The 05 looks sportier than 06. The peeps just love my car at work!

the 06 looks kind of like a Saab 9-3... More flushed and less sharp angles... Not liking but not hating either
