Wow. I'm liking what I see so far. That's a pretty bold and elegant front fascia for a mainstream Japanese sedan.

So looking forward to this. If the new 6 can do for Mazda in the midsize segment what the 3 did in the compact, they would be on quite a roll.

now that is refreshingly different and very nice.

take that, CAMRY and ACCORD.

its a very nice aero form that does not appear blobbish. The new Accord is postively dreadful in comparison.

automakers have gotten very ballsy on putting the hood seam right on a major sculpted character line. look at how tight it is on this mazda. wow.

BTW, km77.com has a high res version of that photo.

i don't even need to read a review. this is already superior to every other midsize, assuming the duratec 35 or 37 is included in the deal. A new mazda6 with a duratec 35 or 37 and a 6 speed manual and I'd have my soulmate back.........

:nono: :nono: I just don't understand why you guys are getting excited over a GAS with YAT.

I am thinking the same. It is bland with snorkel nose. With eyes bloated from the Mazda3.

look at an 08 accord, an 07 camry, or a sonata, and you'll understand why we would get excited about an asian sedan that doesn't look like puke on a stick

IMO, the '08 Accord is by no means puke on a stick (at least compared to what predates it), but I see what you're saying.

I think it looks pretty good, too.

Very nice looking vehicle. Very luxurious looking as well. Something that this segment is currently missing.

I wonder how much influence there was from the guy who designed the Solstice on this baby?

Puke on a stick. The comments on C&G are the lol-erest :P

That said, I want to see the rest of this car before I pass judgement. Remember the excitement over that Malibu teaser? And when we saw the rest, it was OK, but a big nono on the rear.

As for the greenhouse and interior, it looks like everything else, but there isn't much room for variation in this segment, is there? I hope it's roof is flowing, unlike the Camry, with it's flat roof, reminiscent of a Crown Vic.

I need some of whatever kool aid is being consumed by you people. The '08 Taurus has more originality that this!

A big block of chrome and altezza-style taillamps (not to mention tacked on fender vents) slapped onto one of the most derivative-looking sedans on the market is what you call original?

From what we can see, the Mazda's front fascia is at the very least a cohesive, dynamic design with tastefully-executed details. The Ford Taurus is a failed attempt to inject some kind of life into a hilariously dull design. The result is a mish-mash of tacky (and tired) design cues added on as afterthought. Not originality.

yes... because the Taurus is not another generic asian sedan with yet another trapezoid for a grill. While the Taurus isn't exciting in a "zoom zoom" sorta way, Are you really going to mistake it for anything else?

scrape the logo off and I doubt any of you would have been able to identify the brand.

My first thought when I saw it was that it would make a good Galant refresh.

That incorrectly presumes that enough people buy the Galant now.
