New Mazda6 Wagon takes center stage at 2018 Geneva Motor Show

The Mazda stand will be one of the very busiest at the 88th Geneva International Motor Show next month. It will feature the world debut of the new Mazda6 Wagon, the European debut of the new Mazda6 Sedan, and two stunning concept vehicles (Mazda Vision Coupe and Mazda KAI Concept), as well as showcasing Mazda’s revolutionary SKYACTIV-X next-generation gasoline engine.

 

 

 

 

 

The latest update of the Mazda6 is the most comprehensive yet, offering enhanced quality in almost every detail of Mazda’s flagship model. It features a more mature, elegant and refined exterior design, extensive interior revisions including completely new seating, boosted SKYACTIV powertrain performance, enhanced driving dynamics, greater aerodynamic efficiency, reduced NVH and an even broader range of i-ACTIVSENSE safety features, such as a 360° view monitor and an intelligent speed assist system.

The Mazda Vision Coupe, recently crowned ‘Most Beautiful Concept Car of the Year’, adopts the basic form of a flowing four-door coupe. It forgoes the rhythmical motion that prior iterations of KODO design emphasized in body styling, opting instead for a simple form that strips away all non-essential elements to follow the principle of ‘Less is More’. Tremendous time and care have been invested on the bodywork, especially the play of light across its surfaces.

Its name Kai meaning ‘Pioneer’, the Mazda KAI Concept compact hatchback sets the stage for the future of the Mazda brand, showcasing the company’s breakthrough technologies and the latest evolution of its KODO design. Within next-generation SKYACTIV-VEHICLE Architecture which maximises the human body’s inherent abilities to effect the ultimate connection between driver and car, it adopts Mazda’s revolutionary SKYACTIV-X powertrain.

SKYACTIV-X engine showcase

Exclusive to Mazda, SKYACTIV-X is a ground-breaking engine which introduces an innovative combustion method called Spark Controlled Compression Ignition (SPCCI). Set to become the world’s first commercial gasoline engine to use compression ignition*, SKYACTIV-X combines the benefits of a spark-ignition petrol engine -expansiveness at high rpm and cleaner emissions- with those of a compression diesel engine -superior initial response and fuel economy- to produce a crossover engine that delivers the best of both worlds.

Mazda exhibit begins with a press conference on 6 March, the first of two press days, at its stand (no. 5150 in hall 5) in the Palexpo convention center. The 2018 Geneva Motor Show opens to the public from 8-18 March.
