However, the Mazda6 is receiving a facelift, one that will probably soon be officially revealed, since it was just revealed via the leaked content posted below.
Known as the Atenza in Japan, the look of the facelifted 6 doesn’t seem to differ all that much from that of the current car. The grille looks different and is more prominent, though subtly so, and it would appear that the headlights also have a different design inside; their shape remains the same, though. The design of the bumper has also been altered somewhat, though not dramatically.
Inside is where the 6 could have benefitted more from a facelift. The interior was never bad, but some design elements like the position of the infotainment screen could have been (looked) better. With the facelift, it appears they’ve changed the way the screen sits, now resting atop the dash with no cowl.
The dashboard looks to be more different in other areas too, like the heating/ventilation controls; the steering wheel may also be different, though we can’t state that as a fact.
