    I think it's pretty nice. Kinda looks like it should be named as a cx-3 (mini version of cx-5).

    Anybody else notice it will be built in Mexico?
    That's a deterrent for me.

    I doubt entire production will be in Mexico. That is likely for the South American market. The exact same concerns were raised when the 2010 first articles were out.

    Not a fan of how it looks. I like the looks of the cx5 but this mini looking cx5 just looks awkward. I was hoping they would adopt something similar to the aggressiveness of the new 6. The diesel speculation could be interesting though.

    The front does look a bit too big. However, everyone HATED on the current generation of 3. I'm assuming we'll all warm up to it as well.

    Remember how I "Saved" the current Mazda 3?

    i'd have zero inclination to buy cars made in Mexico, Eastern Europe or China. probably one reason I never went for a VW or Nissan

    I don't mind it, almost looks like a mini truck. And yes, it does look very similar to the cx-5, which I also dont mind. But for my next car, well it's definately not going to be as small as the 3.... movin up in size

    It doesn't look too bad, better then the current gen. I could see myself in one down the road possibly. Something that couldn't have been said from the current gen lol.

    I would be very excited to see something like that. We finally opened up our GTR Down payment savings account last week but I would be more than happy to dump that cash into a new super mazdaspeedspeedspeed.

    I think it looks great. As always though reserving final judgement until I see it in person.

    Older Skoda Octavia was built on VW Passat platform if I remember right. They were decent cars I suppose, I don't know how are they now though. I was just joking anyways.
