Photos of a heavily disguised 2008 Mazda 6 MPS have surfaced on the internet thanks to Auto Express. Auto Express claim that this is the MPS as there are tell-tale features such as twin exhausts, large alloy wheels a pronounced bulge on the bonnet and what appears to be an intercooler behind the central vent in the front spoiler.

Call me a cynic but I am not 100% convinced. These photos could easily be the regular Mazda 6 seen in earlier spy shots. The intercooler could simply be the air-conditioning condenser and the bonnet bulge is being accentuated by air being forced up under the bra/disguise as the front is open and not air-tight. But then again?

Assuming that this is the Mazda 6 MPS then the main points to note are that it continues to use AWD and shares its platform and running gear with the latest-generation Ford Mondeo.

Mazda is believed to be upgrading interior materials to improve cabin quality and feel. The standard Mazda 6 will include a wagon (estate) variant and the engine line-up will include 1.8, 2.0 and 2.5-litre petrol engines as well as a diesel unit, no doubt for the European market although it would be nice to see it come to Australia?

Expect the new generation Mazda 6 to make its first official appearance at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September this year with Australian Mazda dealers expected to receive their first allocation in 2008.
