New Mazda6 saloon unveiled

Mazda’s flagship model for a “new generation of vehicles” is revealed at the 2012 Moscow Motor Show.

The new Mazda6 – the latest car to incorporate Mazda’s SKYACTIV engine technology and KODO design language – is 105mm longer than its predecessor, adding extra room in the front and back of the car. Exact engine specifications and options are yet to be announced, but the models on show at Moscow sported 2.0-litre and 2.5-litre petrol engines, returning 149bhp and 190bhp, respectively.

It also comes with 19-inch wheels, a bigger boot with a 32mm wider opening for easy loading, fully adjustable front seat and steering wheel, plus centralised controls for the radio, sat-nav and windscreen wipers.

Inside, trip information is displayed on a 3.5-inch screen on the dashboard, while sat-nav info is displayed on a 5-inch screen in the centre panel. The Mazda6 will also use brake energy regeneration, stop-start and sci-fi-sounding nanotechnology in the catalyst to improve emissions, all as standard.

The car also offers improved visibility, better mirror placement, high-beam control, adaptive front lighting, hill start assist, an emergency stop signal system that blinks the hazard lights under hard braking, rear vehicle monitoring and blind spot detection, lane departure warning and low-speed collision avoidance systems.
