The Mazda6 has had an update for 2018
Added: 03 May 2018
The newest model within the Mazda range presents us with a fantastic opportunity to further evolve our image as a manufacturer of elegant, stylish and luxurious vehicles that offer responsive driving dynamics. New Mazda6 has undergone significant revisions with further attention to detail and craftsmanship of the highest level.
Improvements to the engine range include our updated SKYACTIV-D 2.2 clean diesel engine. Available in 150ps, power has increased on the high power to 184ps (+9ps), the engine now produces stronger torque levels even at low rpm with power the instant the driver needs it for even better all-round performance. In addition to the diesel particulate filter, the SKYACTIV-D clean diesel engine is now also equipped with a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system, which reduces nitrogen oxide emissions to a minimum.
Our SKYACTIV-G 2.0 petrol engine (available in 145ps and 165ps) also see improvements resulting in more power in the lower rpm range and an increase in torque. We also see the introduction of the anticipated SKYACTIV-G 2.5 petrol engine, mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox. Featuring cylinder deactivation, fuel consumption is reduced by up to 20% at constant driving between 25-50mph.
Available in four trim levels: SE-L Nav+, SE-L LUX Nav+, Sport Nav+ and GT Sport Nav+, the + symbol within the grade name denotes this model has been WLTP tested. All models come with generous levels of equipment including a windscreen projected Colour Active Driver Display, Mazda Radar Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist, Blind Sport Monitoring and Rear Cross Traffic Alert as standard to achieve the highest level of Euro NCAP safety ratings.
Inside the cabin, new Mazda6 has been designed to offer further refinement with a new instrument cluster, dashboard and door trim designs. An all-new seat design adopts new materials to provide support to maintain an ideal posture, and to provide enhanced levels of comfort that supports the body when driving for long periods of time.
The introduction of our new flagship model, the GT Sport Nav+, offers the highest quality interior package to date. Features include Nappa leather seats, Satin Chrome, real ‘Japanese Sen Wood’ trim and Ultrasuede® materials. Additional features include an electric sunroof, front and rear heated seats, front seat ventilation to provide cooling, and 360-degree View Monitor to provide an overview of the vehicle's entire environment on the MZD Connects central display.
Available in 8 colours, we also introduce our newest colour, Soul Red Crystal Metallic, an evolution of Soul Red created with a three-layer structure. The fresh, lustrous transparency of this new red better highlights the quality of KODO design’s contours.
