Mazda is only giving us tapas-sized video bites of its upcoming Mazda6, but at least each bite comes quickly. Just days after the second teaser came out, our third view of the sedan reveals some unexpected inspiration from the Takeri concept: its paint. The Takeri show car was a deep, lustrous red; the Mazda6 in the videos is called Soul Red, said by Mazda to use "an innovative new paint process... to capture both the deepness and vividness of the colour, highlighting the cars sleek design."

Its color and its shape are still looking good. Have a look for yourself in the 27 seconds of teasing in the video below.

      This is my #1 reason for NOT buying any other car at the moment! Show me the full thing and lock me in ...I'm waiting!

      The Takeri concept was beautiful, and this could stand up to the Fusion in its own unique way. Hopefully the Mazda6 isn't too big--I think the current 6 alienated buyers because it tried too hard to be an Accord.

      I really hope they put a diesel into this car...would love a 40+mpg competitor to the Passat and a great alternative to the hybrids

        If they put the SkyActiv-D in it, made it a true hatch (not a wagon), and painted it in a color befitting a proper *****, I'd beat down women and children to buy it.

      It looks like they stayed true to the concept, which will give the Fusion a run for its money in the looks category. There really no reason why the current 6 doesn't sell. It's looks good, offer performance better than the average family sedan and offers what the average buyer in that segments wants. I would've considered one if the more powerful v6 came with a manual, but that's an enthusiast choice not the average buyer.

        The reason the current gen 6 doesn't sell is because they tried to hard to make it, and market it to, the Accord/Camry buyer. Instead of giving us the same car they sell everywhere else in the world, they gave North America a bigger, uglier, less efficient car that only resembles the real 6 the rest of the world got. If they would have simply grown on the 1st gen (which I still drive) the 2nd gen would have been a winner. Instead they tried to be what they are not, but only to the American buyer, and failed miserably because of it.

      Just called the local dealer for fun and asked him when the next Mazda6 was coming out.....and the reply? Dead air..... he had no clue what I was talking about and started talking about a 3....! When the hell are dealers going to conduct secret shopping tests on their salesmen to see if they are up to par with the buying public as far as some product knowledge? WTF!

        Personal experience has been that most dealer salespeople don't really know as much about what they're selling as they should.

        The dealer wants to sell you a car on his lot, not talk about one that he doesn't have or can't sell you.

      I really hope it comes with a manual transmission on the high-end engine, whether it's a turbo 4 or a V6. With the death of the Legacy GT, there aren't any manual transmission midsize sedans available in the US with a turbo 4/V6. At least we still have the Passat VR6. DSG is better than a boring old slushbox. Weight savings in this generation of the 6 would also help. The current gen is a pig.

        I think they said previously that it's going to be CVT only.

          Incorrect. This will have an in-house built 6spd auto. Should have a manual option on certain trim levels, every model If they are smart.
