Some carmakers are hell bent on teasing us. This time, we have Mazda announcing a “A BIG reveal in the BIG apple” through a video that could pose more questions than it answers.
We’ll admit that our first thought goes to the facelifted 2018 Mazda6, especially since the lighting units seem to match those pictured in the video, but that’s already been announced and detailed. Not that we’d be surprised one bit, as we’ve seen worse teaser-tactics from manufacturers.
What else could it be?
Recently, we found out that Mazda listed the ‘6’ with all-wheel drive on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, so unless it was a mistake, we think that might be the best answer.
We also know for a fact that Mazda is preparing a brand-new ‘3’ hatch, with leaked images of its digital instrument panel making headlines last week. From the other models in its range, the only one that is approaching an update is the CX-3 small crossover that was presented in 2015, but that seems like a long-shot.
Perhaps it’s something different altogether. Either way, we’d love to hear what you think in the comments.
