Interesting, I thought this was the new interior. As you can see it still looks similar to the current model but there are some welcome changes, especially the cup holder situation

Amazing! I had assumed the Merc AMG GT, but who actually originated this style?

Cupholders ... this appears to have some U.S. influence, given that all good U.S. designs begin with cupholder placement, and then add the accessories: steering wheel, gear change, seats ...
Note also yet another, the four ring variation on the Matsuda logo

Every time I see cupholders in a car (particularly in the front cabin area) I shake my head. This is a recipe for disaster - not just spilled coffee on your favorite jacket, but inability to maneuver in an emergency situation with a hot mug of coffee in your hand. So for me the cup holder is merely a place to stow things and I'd much rather that it was replaced by a more practical use of space.

Do people actually drink hot coffee from a mug while driving? Do mugs even fit in cup holders? I commute daily with a lidded stainless tumbler of coffee and a decent cup holder is appreciated.

At least the cupholders appear to be hidden on the AMG GT

Probably the difference it a 50k car vs 30k car, attention to detail, and probably listend to what customers actually wanted and the way they use them.

I wonder how long Mazda will still have a CD Player fitted ???

I wonder if this is what we can expect ???

See Below Image hope it works.

I Wonder if this is what we may see also, or maybe its a different model car.

'Don't know what that is ... but this IS a CX-3 ... even RHD, for the men with thunder :--)

Notice the Recaro's adjustable thigh support ... just checked these out at Super Autobacs ... I want!

with you on the Recaro Seats, very nice indeed and would also love to have them.

Maybe Mazda may come out with something as an option with Power upgrade also to compete against maybe the VW Golf, now that would be wicked.
