Always liked the look of these and the next version looks seriously cool.

Also bear in mind that the next Spider will be an MX5 so We had better get used to Mazda.

I had a 323 once - the long one. Quite a nice car.

No. Uncool.

I had one of the previous version (2004 model) and it was spacious and worthy enough but not cool at all. I'm sure my owning one only further reinforced that fact.

I can't recall seeing one on the road. Are they brand new? I really liked the previous model and still have very fond memories of the 626 we had. I've no doubt I would like this as well. But does that mean it's cool? Nah.

If its an older model it must be virtually invisible.

It's new . The side glass does not extend into the pillar (6thlight) and the grille is more vertical with a chrome horizontal strip running into the headlamps. They are so excited there have been two show cars leading up to its intro!

The previous one was a decent looking car (but wasn't remotely cool). That's unremarkable and inoffensive but with a layer of grime and a few supermarket dings it'll just blend into the scenery.

Seriously cool How anybody could describe a Mazda 6 as unremarkable or that it could blend in to the scenery is talking rubbish! I think it is a cool car for someone who wants something a little different to the norm.

I've just taken delivery of a Hyundai i40 rental car. Impressive. Reminded me of the 6 a bit.

..and whilst I love my daughter's '98 MX5 (it was her Mum's we bought it new) I would have my 916 Spider of the same age every time.
Thankfully we are all different. I rate Mazdas but with the odd exception of the MX6 and early MX5's none are remotely cool. Just IMHO of course

The 156 and 159 are far, far better and that without driving any of them Seriously they are pretty cars and the Mazda 6 just plain dull.

Every one is entitled to their opinion but, the 6 is definitely not dull
