Yesterday the Japanese newspaper, Nikkan Kogyo claimed that the slow selling Mazda6 would soon get the axe, but now Mazda is refuting those reports.
Mazda recently told Car and Driver that “there is no intention to discontinue” the Mazda6. Mazda’s U.S. CEO, Jim o’Sullivan also stated that the current generation Mazda6 will be around for the next several years. Although the Mazda6 is here to stay, there are no big changes planned for the sedan in the next two years, beyond the addition of the new four-cylinder SkyActiv engine.
Mazda has no plans to discontinue the Mazda6, but it may change where it’s currently built. The Mazda6 is built in a facility in Flat Rock, Michigan, that Mazda shares with Ford. Mazda may move production to Mexico, where it would be cheaper to produce the Mazda6.
