All-New Mazda6 Sedan and Wagon Arrive in Paris, get Priced in the UK [89 Photos]


Mazda’s new-generation mid-size model series in both saloon and estate (Tourer / Wagon) flavors are the focal point of the brand's exhibit at this year’s edition of the Paris Motor Show.

Redesigned from the ground up, the new Mazda6 brings a sportier design language along with a lighter chassis that promises to deliver in the handling department, new and more fuel efficient engines and transmissions, plus fresh technologies such as the i-ELOOP, the Japanese company’s brake energy regeneration system.

The new Mazda6 will begin arriving in European dealerships later this year with a choice of three gasoline and two diesel units.

The four-cylinder gasoline range comprises the 2.0-liter SKYACTIVE-G available in two outputs with 143Hp (107 kW / 145PS) and 162Hp (121kW / 165PS), and the 2.5-liter SKYACTIVE-G producing 189Hp (141kW / 192PS).

Diesel options include a 2.2-litre SKYACTIV-D offered in two states of tune, with 147Hp (110kW / 150PS) and 173Hp (129kW / 175PS).

Besides the 2.5-liter unit that is coupled exclusively to a 6-speed automatic, all the other powertrains are offered with a choice of a 6-speed manual or an automatic with the same number of gears.

In the United Kingdom, the new Mazda6 will go on sale in January of 2013 priced from £19,595 to £28,045 (see the list below for details), with engine options including the SKYACTIV 2.0-litre petrol and 2.2-litre diesel with the choice of six-speed manual and automatic SKYACTIV transmissions.

I like it! Mazda is really on a good track since the CX5
I hope it will be packed with driving high tech features very soon (adaptative cruise control)

Wow those emissions are really low (sorry to sound so boring!).

These numbers (in both the petrol & diesel) are extremely competitive with the euro manufacturer offerings, as well as our US partner offerings from Ford & GM. And these figures far beat the weak offerings from the rest of the Jap pack (including the top funded boys at Toyota, Nissan & Honda) in this vehicle size range (and below too!).Mazda clearly are realising a sustainable strategy to survive for the long game in Europe. You only need to look at Subaru, Mitsubishi, Suzuki & Daihatsu, to see the lack of scalable future direction from fellow small-outfit Jap players in Europe. Even the Korean new wave have yet offer models with such low emissions....
