And they are late. If you are going to do a streaming reveal, you need to start on time. Otherwise, people will click and leave...

Resolution is s***, but I have zero issues with the stream.


*Derp. I had to switch to 1080 in the drop- down. No issues here.

**WTF!? Who detailed those cars? That windshield on the grey one! ROFL!

***We get it...light and shadow, use of negative space for optical properties, blah blah...but do it has AWD and 200+hp and many mpg!? Can we get a stickshift?

****AWD Badge Spotted!!!! That hatch looks pretty darn swift!

Wait...what? This was all about paint and body panels and "has X and AWD"? Say what you want about GM, but they know how to unveil a performance (what Mazda brands the Hatch as) vehicle. Real 0-60 times by a real driver. Talk of clutch and synchro engagement/feel, etc. etc.

I want data. I can look at the car for myself and see if it appeals to me visually.

That type of conversations usually comes from this one guy who works for Mazda. I cannot remover his name right now, but he talk about the nuts and bolts in multiple videos. He's an American white guy, I couldn't find any of his videos on a quick search through the Mazda Usa page on youtube.

From the sounds of it, they are doing that tomorrow at the press conference.

Looks like sky-x ain't happening until 'late 2019', maybe why they didn't talk much of it.. smart money: 2000-never(2thumbs)

I actually think the sedan looks a bit better- definitely most improved of the 2.

Nice!!! So i can get awd, manual, 2.5SA-G (proven tech). Thats damn tempting 2020ish calendar year (pick up used, no way id go new).

Yep, and you can tune it. Corksport is supposedly working in a turbo kit too.

What worries me is the promise of a diesel like engine by the end of 2019.... Mazda does not have a good track record of actually delivering promised engines...

Yeah, but if they stuffed a 2.5SA-G and AWD with a 6-speed manual in the thing...they also could stuff a 2.5SA-T in the thing...and that opens the door to MazdaSpeed product.

Based on what? The lack of a CX-5 diesel? Hear a lot of complaining about that on these forums, seemingly from a lack of recognition that changes in US regulations and the market damage caused by the VW scandal probably were the cause. Not really a broken promise if the rug got pulled out from under Mazda by outside factors.

No, the fact that it was promised and never un-promised. All they had to say was that because of regulations, it is no longer a feasible option for them. It is still on their fricken web-site as a car that is coming. I will believe in the Sky-X when it is on the ships.
