Several images of the Mazda6 / Atenza facelift have hit the web ahead of an imminent official reveal.

It seems Mazda is just about ready to apply a mild styling update on the JDM-spec Atenza in both sedan and wagon body styles as a few photographs of a sales handbook have emerged showing a few design changes which make the model look even more like the Takeri concept that previewed the current generation. Up front we notice the headlights have different graphics while the grille has received an elegant aluminum/chrome finish and its margins appear to be thicker, especially in the area connecting with the headlights.

Bringing a "big change", the revised Atenza has slightly smaller fog lights and above them on the front bumper are aluminum fins mirroring the grille's finish. Moving at the back, except for the slightly altered taillight graphics we don't notice any other tweaks but it's hard to spot them given the low-res quality of the pics.

Inside the cabin there's a two-tone black & white color scheme, a standalone touchscreen display, an electric handbrake and some chrome inserts on the dashboard and door handles.

A full reveal will occur later this month when the Mazda6 will debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show, alongside the CX-3 and CX-5 facelift.
