Just hours after a telling new teaser image surfaced online, Mazda has released a trio of revealing new photos for its new 2013 Mazda6 family sedan.
There are differences, of course. The Takeri's complex headlight internals have been swapped for a conventional lens and projector arrangement, and a BMW-like 'halo' LED light ring is also featured.
The grille of the new car is a smidge shorter top-to-bottom, the metal garnish along the grille and headlights has been dialled back a little, and the front bumper - at least on this variant - also takes on a less aggressive look.
The release of the new images follow spy photos of a lightly-camouflaged 2013 Mazda6 Touring wagon, revealing the car in its final form. Previous test cars had used the body of the current-generation Mazda6.
Technologies in the new Mazda6 will include the carmaker's new SkyActiv engines, transmissions and lightweight construction techniques, along with a new i-ELOOP capacitor-based kinetic energy regenerative braking system.
The Mazda6 that will be shown in Moscow will be a Russian-spec sedan, equipped with a direct-injection SkyActiv-G 2.0 petrol engine and six-speed SkyActiv-Drive automatic transmission.
The 2013 Mazda6 will be unveiled at September's Moscow Motor Show. Watch for an Australian debut to occur early in 2013.
