That's the Euro version of the '09 6. The US version could be quite different (and not as good looking).
That is incorrect. Have you not seen the spy photos of the masked Mazda6 driving around Detroit? Even Mazdausa.com has posted the same car that you are looking at now, on their website.
The next Mazda6 will be a 2009, offered in mid 2008.
I went to a Mazda function this week, and they confirmed that the Mazda6 you are seeing at the Frankfurt Autoshow, IS that Mazda6 we will be getting. With little differences here and there. But, the body will bew the same.

The fleet statistics were taken from www.fleet-central.com when industry stats. for 1st half of 2007 were reported.

Then C&D and a few other outlets must have the story wrong. We'll know soon enough.

Remember, they were going on rumors, no facts. Edmunds seems to think that the new Mazda6 is an 08 going on sale this fall. That is totally not true. I have 08's on order, and it's the same as the 07.

If mazda were not changing out the six early then and keeping the same model as a carryover why did they not then update the web page to show the current model as a 08 offering. For example, notice how the information on mazdausa.com for the 3 is now posted as 08 with no changes to the model for this year.

Because the 2008's are not totally out yet. I have had 2008 Mazda3's in my inventory for over a month and a half. I just received my first two 2008 Mazda6's today, and they are no different then the 2007's. With the exception of a few features.

From what I can see in spy shots from the Detroit area, the only differences will be:
- front/rear fascias; likely for NA crash standards
- headlamp/taillamp design; likely to keep family resemblance with CX-9, etc.; perhaps Mazda's design direction
- exhaust tips; NA version are contoured like CX-9, not round like the Frankfurt pics
We can only hope that all three versions make it to North America. That wagon is so hot!

I noticed the rear exhaust tips, they are very similar to the CX-9.
As for the front and rear fascias, the camo really hides it, but I think it will basically be the same.
#99 of 2226 car looks great
Sep 20, 2007 (12:01 pm)
but it has a strong hint of lexus is/ current nissan altima to it. But still very nice looking.
if it drives how it looks, it seems that the current cushy ride camry, best balanced accord, and best handling 6 will keep their themes.
Dunno who it was who said the new camry is sportier than the new accord, but that simply makes no sense. In what way is it?
the design also has some strong hues of the 3.

The Camry definitely LOOKS sportier than the Accord, especially the SE. The Accord is as conservative as they could make it. The Mazda doesn't have that problem.
The humps (fender flares) work much better on the Mazda than they do on the S-Class.
