More Mazda6 Teasing (Video)

Mazda is passing the long, hot summer afternoons by teasing its upcoming Mazda6. The Takeri concept whetted the world's appetite for the new flagship sedan, and a series of teasers are keeping anticipation high. With more than two months left before the official Paris Motor Show debut, we expect to see a few more teasers. Number 2 and 3 are officially here.

The first Mazda6 teaser focused on the driver side front. Number 2 takes the tour to the profile by way of the front fender, and number 3 pulls us around back.

Mazda hasn't released much information about the Mazda6 yet. Instead, it's focused on each slice of styling by quoting interpretations from chief designer Akira Tamatani.

Of the side view showcased in teaser 2, Tamatani mentions the "well-toned, lean muscles that firmly hug the road." Of the rear view, he says: "The car's form manages to convey both a dignified tension and suppleness at the same time, and Soul Red is brilliantly vivid with a deep luster. It's the way these two elements complement each other which produces the charm of the new Mazda6."

Mazda explains that it developed a new paint process in churning out the new "Soul Red" color, a process that it says brings out the deepness and vividness of red.

Mazda labels all its teaser videos with a "not the Takeri" disclaimer, but the actual Mazda6 doesn't fall that far from the Takeri tree. So far, the grille, big fenders, profile lines and plentiful chrome trim appear transplanted from the concept. The main differences that have emerged include subtleties like a more traditional set of rear-view mirrors and more softly styled taillamps.

Teaser 2 and 3 in order below:
