Excellent find. I find the side profile to look a lot like a Pilot which is most likely pure coincedence. Stop at 1:50 for that. The front is pure Mazda B-Series which is good I guess. The back looks just like its Mariner and Escape siblings. The interior should be more distinguishable from its siblings as it looks like they only tacked the Mazda badge on and nothing else. Overall, it's okay but looks dated a bit.

God, the exterior of this car is 10 years behind the rest of Mazda's lineup. They already have the CX-7, was a new Tribute really even necessary?

It somehow looks worse than the Escape, if that's possible.

How modern! T bar automatics!

CX7 kills this. The Tribute and BT50 bring Mazda's range and image down.

I don't know how that grille reminds me of 1997 626 with it's first current badge on it.

It's as if Ford rang the Mazda design department once they'd finished the Escape, and the Mazda guys were like "um, yeah, we're kinda busy, I'm sure whatever you guys come up with will be OK"

That's why I believe they'll ONLY sell the hybrid model shown in the video. I mean, the only point Mazda has to bring this into market is the fact that it's a hybrid...
