From what I'm seeing, it looks better. The first Mazda3 set the standard for how ~$25K (equipped) cars in this segment should look, and this looks like an evolution of that approach. It's looking relatively clean and classy, but sufficiently chiseled, substantial, and sporty.

I did not like the concept's looks at all, but love the "concept" (idea) itself. I had doubt as to whether or not Toyota could execute because they have violated my trust and expectations in a major way in recent years, but this looks promising...
