2013 Mazda CX-9 - front three-quarter view

Mazda is slowly but surely wiping its smiley Nagare design language from the faces of its automobiles, and it appears that the seven-passenger CX-9 is the next to get the bolder Kodo-influenced treatment. The 2013 CX-9 you see here will officially bow at the Australian International Motor Show in mid-October, but Mazda has released a few preliminary images and details regarding the big CUV’s refresh.

Now, as much as we like the design of the new CX-5 crossover and Mazda6 sedan, we aren’t quite sure if we love the way the new Kodo lines flow onto the CX-9′s larger body. The more we stare at the images in the gallery above, the more we start to like it, but this is indeed a case where we’ll need to see the finished product in person before making any final judgments. We can’t yet see what sort of changes have been applied to the rear end or the interior, but new details up front include LED running lights in the headlamp clusters and bolder, more pronounced lines around the foglamp housings.

Mum’s the word about any other new-for-2013 changes, and Mazda states that the current CX-9′s 3.7-liter V6 and six-speed automatic will carry over, likely mated to both front- and all-wheel drive.

We’ll no doubt receive more details closer to the car’s official unveiling in Australia next month, but for now, scroll down to read the official press blast and scroll through the high-res image gallery to take in the Niner’s new schnoz for yourself.

Mazda has given the world a glimpse of the 2014 Mazda6 Wagon ahead of its debut at this year’s Paris Motor Show. The slinky five-door will bow in Europe and Japan with a Skyactiv-D 2.2-liter diesel engine in both standard and high-output configurations. Buyers who prefer a gasoline engine can opt for either 2.0-liter or 2.5-liter direct-injection four-cylinders. Mazda hasn’t said what we can expect to see in terms of transmission options, but the company has made it clear the 2014 Mazda6 Wagon will make use of a new brake energy regeneration system called i-Eloop.

The new Mazda6 Wagon will show off under the lights of the Paris Motor Show starting on September 27. Public days run from September 29 through October 14. In the interim, you can check out the images above and the brief press release below for more information.

Facelifted 2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata leaked?

 2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata

It looks as if the current generation Mazda MX-5 Miata will stay on for a while longer. (Note: We are not complaining.) Images clipped from a Japanese brochure show a newly facelifted version of the NC platform, designated the NC3.

The roadster wears an all-new front fascia, complete with a five-point grille opening and a pair of redesigned fog lamp housings to to either side. The fascia looks more than a bit like the one found on the Mazda Spyder Concept we all know and love, and softens the current car’s always-happy-to-see-you grin.

Word has it the 2013 MX-5 Miata will come with a new pedestrian-safe hood designed to pop up in the event of a collision. Step indoors, and the interior boasts new blacked-out gauges, as well as a new dash cover. It’s unclear whether there are any mechanical changes on hand, though we do know the NC3 will bow with a new range of paint color and wheel options.
