Once we got behind the wheel of the Mazda CX-5 a few weeks ago, we instantly became proponents of the car company. While they may not be the most opulent, or luxurious, there is something to be said about the Japanese manufacturer’s attention to detail that is paired with a simplicity that evokes excitement.
Now, continuing their new KODO “soul of motion” design language in 2014, is the all new Mazda6 with their SkyActive technology. With it comes Mazda’s unique new regenerative braking system called i-ELOOP and soon-to-be-available clean diesel technology. Sitting in the center stack is a 5.8-inch infotainment system backed with TomTom navigation. Under the hood will reside your choice of a direct-injection 2.5-liter gas engine or a 2.2-liter turbo diesel, with the petrol version cranking out almost 200 horses of power – the diesel will produce a remarkable 175hp with a whopping 309 lb-ft of torque. 0-60 figures are said to be 7.5-8.0 seconds in the direct injection model – expect a slower time in the diesel.
We’re hearing that the new Mazda6 will hit dealerships as early as January or February of next year, and will be officially unveiled at the LA Auto Show on November 29th. In the meantime you can enjoy the above video, which shows off the car’s beautiful curves and all new design language.
