The painfully slow striptease of the next Mazda6 continues unabated. Fortunately for us, the Japanese automaker has seen fit to reveal the car's full profile, albeit in a video that never shows the car in its entirety.

We've gone ahead and created a composite image based on screen captures – it's far from perfect, but hopefully it gives us an idea of how Mazda's swoopy new family sedan is shaping up. Click on the image above to see it in high resolution.

As before, we see clear evidence that Mazda is using the Kodo "Soul of Motion" design language of its Takeri Concept as the starting point for the 6's shape, and that's a good thing. We're expecting four-cylinder power relying heavily on Mazda's Skyactiv fuel-saving technology.

Fell free to have a gander at teasers one, two and three, then satiate your voyeuristic notions by scrolling down below for the latest video.

      Nice, I like how the metal window seal creases at the c-pillar. Really creative. I see Mazda is still the only Asian manufacture with a design Mojo.

        Agreed! I really hope this thing shakes the competition up a little.

      Those are some pretty sweepy curves over there. This car has quite a bit of potential. I really like how the curves that we can see seem to wrap around the features of the car (like around the wheels). I am not a fan at all of the current trend with some automakers (like Mercedes and Nissan) where they add creases and arcs seemingly at random on the sides of their cars to add excitement. Having bulging wheel arches makes sense. Putting some kind of weird horseshoe-shaped accent line in the middle of the door does not.

      I like where this is going.

      if they could get 85-90% close to the Takeri concept, this thing will rival/lead others in its class on design.

      It's official. I'm all burned out on teasers.

      That character line over the front fender makes me think of cars from the 40's when the spare tires used to be mounted behind the fenders. I can dig it.

      I was hoping the C-pillar was going to be exactly like the concept. I guess we're due for some more plastic filler attempting to mascarade as a window.

      Nice looking car. If it comes in as the takeri, it will be a winner.

      Holy upright windshield, I hope that isn't an official picture or video!

      video shot was taken at an angle. That's why it looks like it has long nose and short front door
