Looking at the sedan it seems the rear side window has no accessory pillar for the roll down window, present on the current car. So does this mean the photo is wrong and missing the pillar, or will Mazda actually release it without the pillar? I checked in photoshop, and if the window were to roll down diagonally and not straight down, it might fit in the door but going straight down, it won't fit, so I feel we are looking at a few more details on that side window missing in this photo? Or is the lighting hiding it that well?

Yeah that image of the sedan window line looks odd.

Anyway, actual spy pics of the hatch now: https://www.caradvice.com.au/703365/...-3-spy-photos/

Yup just saw those, looks like the window pillar will be put into the rear side window after all.

Staying very close to the concept. I wish the rear glass were more upright and didn't slope so much into a shoe-shape. But I love how thick the C pillar is. Gives some nice weight to the rear, could-be-RWD-look (it's not).

The front is looking stellar. LOVE the slim headlights. Mazda is killing it with their grille detailing. Such nice depth and surfacing.

The interior again looks like it's in a price bracket above what it really is.

For me, I think the pillars are FAR too thick, esp on something that's supposed to be as functional as a compact hatchback. Make a sport sedan as sexy as you want (w/ all the design compromises that entails). A hatch, though....

Agree that the interior looks fantastic. I think Mazda has really been knocking it out of the park in that regard, for the last few yrs.

This is going to look fantastic, maybe even better than the already very pretty current gen. My only concern is rear visibility, but eh...it probably has standard blind spot monitoring anyway. Interior looks great and definitely more interesting and upscale than the class norm.

Curiously it looks like the sedan will have a completely different exterior this time, like the first gen. Kind of surprised a small company like Mazda would splurge on something like that.
