After three years of wearing the same clothes, Mazda's anti-minivan minivan, the Mazda5, has been spotted trying out a new look.
This spy shot shows the six-seater with a revised grille, redesigned headlights that extend a bit beyond the fenders, a more rounded front bumper, flashy chrome trim around the fog lights and LED taillights.

Possibly the most interesting thing on this lightly-camouflaged car are the 17-inch wheels. They are much sportier than what the 5 wore previously, and, dare we say it, hint at MazdaSpeed possibilities. (Actually, they're more typical Ford of Europe wheels.) World Car Fans says the 2008 version of the family hauler won't be getting an engine change, though, so maybe it's just wishful thinking on our part. WCF, however, does say the 2007's 4-speed automatic gets upgraded to a new 5-speed auto in 2008, and the 5-speed manual will still be an option.
