Lol, the font is from the publication that posted it, alongside other future cars. Has zero to do with the accuracy of the vehicle itself...take a look at the Honda Fit thread for proof.

Fair enough but theres a crease in the roof near the rear that's very evident in the promo pic and that's not on the fake.

Perhaps the Mazda will have that style of door config but I'm certain it won't look quite like this.

I’m not sure. If you watch the video, some of the details that show up very briefly like the top of the headlight and the front wheel arch look like they could be a match, but it’s hard to say. The picture certainly looks like it could be real, though I was hoping for (and expecting) something more adventurous.

That's been the plan for quite some time. At least for an entire year if not two. I can't say right now where I read it though.

That magazine cover shows off this in addition to the new Fit and that Nissan concept. All seem believable. The Nissan is the biggest tell though because how and why would they publish something with so few details prior to an unveil (if it's a fake)?

Seems legitimate to me.

Magazines do that ALL THE TIME.

I'm well aware of all the predictive illustration magazines. This one is too specific and reasonable given there was absolutely no info about it before.

Again...magazines are well known for publishing all sorts of unsubstantiated things in order to sell paper and make money. They tell you it's a rumor and you fall for it hoo, line, and sinker. I don't know where you get the nonsensical idea that magazines report truthful information as their default. Because that so obviously isn't the case.

I am choosing to believe this leak is real based on what I've already pointed out. You are more than welcome not to.

Thanks for being typically pedantic.

It could be a photoshop but I have yet to find the original base image or major parts like the hood and rims.

If anyone is able to find the original image or at least a photo of the rims, that could indicate it is a render.

Some parts match the video, ie front fender and the plastic angled back, but the rear part of the roof does not. I don't know if this is because of the different angles or maybe small size.

It might leak before the show, if not then we'll wait for the debut.
