Mazda's Nagare design theme has infiltrated nearly every model in its lineup, with only a few lone hold-outs. Here in Geneva, one of the last unmolested models has finally gone under the knife and the result is the 2011 Mazda 5.

In addition to the new smiling fascia, five-point grille, deeper chin spoiler and flared front fenders, the new 5 gets a trio of dramatic, wave-live character lines sweeping from the front door and terminating into the deeply drawn rear tailamps. The combination ditches the somewhat anonymous profile of the previous model, it's just a shame the rear looks disproportionately top heavy.

The interior gets a quick once over, with thicker, wider seats, power sliding doors and a reworked center stack, and the standard seven seats carryover.

The only question is what engine will power the Mazda5 when it makes it to the States. Mazda could continue using the 2.3-liter four cylinder, but it's just introduced a direct-injected 2.0-liter four that boosts similar power and reduced emissions. Expect official details on the U.S.-spec model soon, but in the meantime, get an eyeful in the gallery below.
