The market-specific tweaks and offerings are interesting.

I don*t think it*s any tackier than any of the other badges. I would debadge my car, other than the Mazda emblem on the rear, if it didn*t leave the holes. I would really like to have the front grill void of the large Mazda emblem if it weren*t for the radar.

It does look a bit tacky to me, I think because the numbers and letters are all connected by that "underline". It looks cheap and out of place considering the "CX-5" and "AWD" badging don't have that line. It's also in the new font that is not italicized, which again makes the emblem look out of place with all of the other italicized emblems. JMO
