There are three engine choices for the recently upgraded Mazda6 as well as a choice between sedan and wagon.

The SkyActiv-G 2.5T turbo petrol is the “performance” model in the line-up offering up to 183kW of power (on 98) and 420Nm that, combined, make this stunning looker a goer.

The engine is only available in the two top models, GT and Atenza.

It is also fitted to the new Mazda CX-9 and utilises a clever exhaust system with a variable outlet shape and size to boost efficiency. They did some work on the intake side too.

Exterior

The shark face stands out in a crowd accentuated this time around by a honeycomb grille and new, LED headlights along with other styling changes to the bumper, bonnet, rear bumper and lights.

Though easily identified as a Mazda6, the new model looks a lot like a Jag especially around the frontal area.

It looks lower (but isn’t) and rolls on big 19-inch alloys.  The arcing coupe style roofline remains along with a coke bottle side profile. Kodo design exemplified.
