2018 Mazda6: Watch Reveal Of The Redesigned And Turbo’d Sedan

Mazda is bringing the 2018 Mazda6 and CX-5 at this year’s LA Auto Show, with the highlight being of course the addition of a turbocharged engine in the four-door sedan.

All we know so far is that Mazda has re-engineered and redesigned the 2018 Mazda6 which now gains a host of new technologies and a cleaner styling inspired by the brand’s latest concepts.

Mazda has also updated the interior with a new dashboard that looks less cluttered, following the design theme set by the company’s latest models, including the MX-5 and the CX-9.

Speaking of the CX-9, the 2018 Mazda6 is finally getting the new Skyactiv-G 2.5T petrol unit we first saw in the firm’s seven-seat SUV. This engine makes up to 250hp and 310lb-ft under the bonnet of the CX-9 so expect similar figures in the 6 too. Mazda says it offers “an effortless performance feel that is equal parts composure and excitement”. The naturally aspirated 2.5-liter unit is also updated with a cylinder-deactivation system for better fuel efficiency.

Join us in Mazda’s LA Auto Show live press conference which is set to begin at 1:30 PM ET.

    This is the terrible part about buying cars, especially new ones. You have to watch as better versions come out while you spend 5+ years paying yours off.

    • Tumbi Mtika

      Don’t buy new then. Plenty of awesome cars used, still. I agree, though. It is pretty annoying.

      • pjl35

        Or lease.

        • LJ

          Leasing is for higher income people who don’t mind always having a car payment.

          • pjl35

            Well, if you’re upset about your car being outdated by a newer model, that’s the price you pay.

      • LJ

        Buying used is such a gamble though. You never really know what you’re getting.

        • Tumbi Mtika

          Yep. But that makes it all the more sweeter when you strike gold.

    • John

      that’s just how it is with everything in general… phone, PC, house, TV, wife…
      especially true with car because the tech are advancing so fast… just need to get over it or do extensive research before you buy.

        wife…? LOL
