Actually, the design is similar to Mazda’s latest CX-30 and 3 models. Basically, all models are sharing the same sharp creases and angular surfaces. On the back, the rendering model features an ‘angel eye’ LED tail-lights and the new dual exhaust tips. However, plenty of camo on the spied model doesn’t allow us to see closer changes.
