Mazda rolls out the new Mazda6 sedan
|   Tuesday, February 05, 2013
Mazda has finally come out with the Mazda6 sedan and this vehicle was long overdue. The company had announced the launch of the vehicle at the Paris International Auto Show in 2012, however there was no official news about this vehicle launching. The Mazda6 is a step forward in terms of innovation and technology and the Japanese car making giants have gone a long way off from the conventional field to design this vehicle.

The Mazda6 has a territory of its own and with the new Sky Active technology.
The vehicle has all the features that a person would expect from a flagship model. However, the vehicle is large and packs in enough space as compared to the other sedans in the segment and the Mazda6 also features a notable decrease in CO2 emission along with an increase in fuel efficiency.

The concept of the vehicle made it quite unlikely for mass production, but Mazda being as unpredictable as always, went ahead with the concept design. In fact the Mazda6 is designed in a totally complete manner than the other vehicles in the stable and this makes the Mazda6 completely unique in its appeal. Mazda could in fact use this design base to create vehicles in the future, although no such remarks have been made by the authority as of yet.

The mazda6 is 27 mm longer than the Skoda Superb and this makes the vehicle sit out at exactly 4865 mm. The Mazda6 is 125 kg heavier than the petrol version of the car tested half a decade ago. However, Mazda did not have the Sky Active technology installed in their vehicle at the time. Mazda considered the use of Sky Active technology as it would reduce the vehicle of the vehicle and make it stand out in the crowd.

Sky Active was first used on the Mazda CX 5 and it turned out to be a phenomenal addition to the vehicle. A 4 cylindered 2.0 liter engine has been installed to the vehicle along with a 2.2 liter diesel power train and the engine features a high compression ratio of 14:1. Even as this is surprisingly low for a diesel vehicle, it is sufficient for a petrol engine and as a result the petrol variant is more energy efficient and produces greater power than the CX 5.

The 2.0 liter engine on the Mazda6 displaces 163 BHP in the Sport trim while the 2.2 liter diesel engine displaces 148 BHP, which is the fun part about the vehicle. CO2 emission climbs up to 119 g/km while Mazda is not ready to compromise on efficiency and environmental friendliness as of yet.

There has been no significant changes to the interior than the one showcased before, although new functions have been included to improve the overall ride quality. Additional safety measures have been installed in the Mazda6 and the multimedia and entertainment features have been enhanced. The overall wheelbase is same and there have been no significant changes in that department.
