Mazda6 serves as flagship model of new generation Mazda vehicles
The all-new 2013 Mazda6 recently held its world premiere at the 2012 Moscow Motor Show and is the second Mazda vehicle to adopt the Skyactiv technology and the 'KODO - Soul of Motion' design language.
The all-new Mazda6 now has several technologies that will improve fuel economy just like the i-stop idling stop system which was first seen in the 2009 Mazda3, and the i-ELOOP(intelligent energy loop) which is Mazda's unique brake regenration system that helps to free some load from the engine to power up the electrical components throughout the car, thus yielding better fuel economy. In addition, a variety of advanced active safety technologies have been adopted for new Mazda6.
"In developing the third-generation Mazda6, we pursued Mazda's intrinsic core value: 'driving pleasure'.We wanted to create a car that reacts and behaves exactly as you expect it to" says Hiroshi Kajiyama, the new Mazda6 program manager.
During its unveiling at Moscow, the all-new 2013 Mazda6 was shown with the 2.0-liter Skyactiv-G engine creating an output of 150 PS with 210Nm of torque and is mated to either a six-speed Skyactiv-D automatic or a six-speed Skyactiv-MT manual gearbox. Meanwhile the 2.5-liter Skyactiv-G engine has an output of 192PS with 256Nm of torque and is only available with a six-speed Skyactiv-D automatic gearbox.
The all-new 2013 Mazda6 is set to build on the momentum created by the success of CX-5 and will serve as the flagship model for Mazda's new generation of vehicles. It is slated to be introduced to global markets starting late this year.
