Mazda has unveiled the all-new 2014 Mazda6 sedan at the Moscow Motor Show. The Mazda6 is the second new generation of Mazda models that adopts the full range of Mazda’s new Skyactiv technology and KODO design language.
The new Mazda6 was previewed by the Mazda Takeri concept that was unveiled late last year. “The new Mazda6 has a robust framework and a low, wide stance that expresses strength and stability, creating the impression of amazing vitality without detracting from the universal aesthetic appeal and beautiful form it displays as a CD car,” says Chief Designer Akira Tamatani. Inside the new Mazda6 features a driver-oriented cockpit.
In Russia, buyers will be able to choose between a 2.0L four-cylinder with 147 horsepower or a 2.5L engine with 189 horsepower. The 2.0L engine can be mated to either a six-speed manual or automatic, while the 2.5L can only be combined with the six-speed automatic transmission. The Mazda6 with the 2.5L engine also gets Mazda’s new “i-ELOOP” brake energy regeneration system, which improves fuel efficiency in real world driving situations. According to Mazda, the Mazda6 is the first passenger car brake energy regeneration system in the world to utilize a capacitor. The Mazda6 also gets “i-stop,” Mazda’s start/stop idling system.
Mazda hasn’t released the specs for the US version, but has stated that the new Mazda6 will go be introduced to global markets starting in late 2012.
