Mazda6 Refreshed From The Inside

2015 Mazda6 vs. 2014 Mazda6 Perhaps Mazda didn’t want the all-new CX-3 to feel lonely at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. So they brought in the Mazda6 and CX-5 to keep it company.  Aside from the introduction of the Mazda CX-3 the theme at the Mazda booth was subtle. Both mazda6 and CX-5 received a subtle exterior refresh to the modern and eye-catching design. The brand’s largest sedan gains LED fog lights encased in a restyled bumper.

Chrysler 300 Gets its Grill Back for 2015

2015 Chrysler 300 vs. 2014 Chrysler 300 2015 Chrysler 300 A facelifted 2015 Chrysler 300 was revealed at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. But this is in no way a nip and tuck as the sedan’s grill got noticeably larger, which seems to be a growing trend with many automakers these days. Actually, it was this oversized grill that propelled the 300 to iconic status when it debuted in 2005. The hype fizzled after the first redesign and Chrysler hopes the 300 will get its swagger back with the current facelift. Aside from the new grill, new bumpers and different layout...
