The back end looks all business. I don't care for Mazda's current styling flavor in front of the A-pillars, and that goes for the new 3 as well. Looks a little over-styled to me, but that's just personal preference.

I'm sure the mechanical bits underneath will be all good, though.

Looks better than current version. Seems like its all about gadgets these days. Lets hope it still delivers where it really counts.

The interior looks cleaner and more serious than the current 3 - in the footsteps of the 6 - I love the styling 95%
That large grill looks great on the larger 6, but it looks a bit too large for this compact 3 hatch. But overall, one of the best looking hatches right now, I think.

Totally agree. The long curve on the front fender is too much. Makes the hood look too long and low.

The front end looks terrible. Looks appropriate on the CX-5 with high belt line but not this.

The back end is well a really nice hiney.

THe Navigation system looks like an iPod dock accessory otherwise nice job on the interior.

Gorgeous car. I rented a Mazda 6 that had 30K on the clock, in a city with pretty bad paving. That thing did not rattle even a little. It handled very well and got about 28 mpg city. I hold Mazda in high esteem.

I like their "minority report" point of view that the way to go is with high output naturally aspirated engines and light weight.

Still hate the front end.

Rest of car is good, I'm a big fan of the Mazda interior lately...

I am sure the base model don't come with it - probably some option on the higher/st trims...
