Mazda previously announced the revelation of its new flagship sedan, the Mazda6, at the LA Auto Show. The show has kicked off on 29 November and Mazda has provided more information on the new Mazda6.
Mazda’s human-centred design philosophy provided the basis for the latest version of the brand’s flagship, which features new powertrain technology and more premium design details. The powertrain line-up includes the SKYACTIV-G 2.5-liter direct injection petrol engine with a cylinder deactivation system that seamlessly switches between four and two-cylinder operation to further improve real-world fuel efficiency at no cost to performance. The turbocharged SKYACTIV-G 2.5T petrol engine that debuted with the Mazda CX-9 crossover SUV, meanwhile, will also be added to the range of powertrains offered in North America.
As for the styling, designers have enhanced the feeling of quality inside and outside the new Mazda6, adding maturity and composure to its award-winning look. The top package features exclusive trim elements like the Japanese sen wood used for traditional musical instruments and furniture. The design is simply more elegant and dignified overall.
New Mazda6: Wider scope on safety technology
An even wider range of advanced i-ACTIVSENSE safety technology is available to help the driver identify potential risks and reduce the likelihood of damage or injury, thus delivering a more relaxing and confidence-building experience behind the wheel. Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC) can now bring the car to a standing stop and take off again when the preceding vehicle pulls away. The new Mazda6 also adds the carmaker’s latest 360° View Monitor.
Other highlights of Mazda’s exhibit in Los Angeles include the highly acclaimed Mazda VISION COUPE, a four-door design concept recently unveiled in Tokyo, the Mazda RT24-P prototype racer and the Mazda MX-5 “Halfie”, a fusion of race car and production model.
