Many people consider the third generation new Mazda 6 to be the epitome of the dynamic and stylish car. The Mazda 6 continues the trend of its predecessors with a well-equipped and stylish package which set a high standard in the medium sized car niche.
The new Mazda 6 is the second range in the company line up to be adapted with the new design philosophy of KODO which was launched with the CX 5. This new family resemblance creates a bolder and sharper design which is far more dynamic than the aesthetic appearance of the previous model. The new styling creates more daring lines at the front and rear of the vehicle to create an overall striking appearance.
Within the Australian market, the new Mazda 6 is available in two different body types with a choice in engines. The option of a diesel automatic is available on the Mazda 6 for the very first time, with no manual variant provided due to the insignificant level of demand in the marketplace. The 2.5 litre petrol engine is a debut for the Skyactive within the Mazda 6. It offers 138 kW power and 250Nm torque. Official figures quote that its fuel efficiency is 6.6 litres per 100 kilometres using standard 91 RON.
The 2.2 litre diesel has its power output rated at 129 kW but this produces an amazing 420Nm torque. It has relatively modest fuel efficiency with 5.4 litres needed per 100 kilometres. Both the petrol and diesel engines are complemented with the six speed automatic option for transmission. The diesel is almost ranked as having the best fuel efficiency in its class. Official figures have the Camry Hybrid from Toyota consuming 5.2 litres per 100 kilometres. However, road tests may dispute these figures and cause great debate.
The new Mazda 6 is not only aesthetically pleasing and packing a power punch. They are also equipped with a great number of technologies and innovations to increase functionality and driver experience. The i-Activesense range offers a number of features, which boosts the safety of the vehicle.
