THE MAZDA PHILOSOPHY
Mazda is a motoring brand like no other. Each car is built on the philosophy of Jinba Ittai – the Japanese term for the connection between a horse and its rider. This is infused into every Mazda model to build a strong relationship between car and driver, and it is evident in the New Mazda6.
Offering space and luxury, the interior of the New Mazda6 has been treated to a full revamp. As well as a leather, hand-stitched steering wheel and auto-dimming rear view mirror on both models, the Tourer also offers a tonneau boot cover.
Premium upholstery materials such as Nappa leather and Japanese Sen wood are available for top-level trims, creating a decadent feel. UltraSuede trim lines the doors and dashboard, which has been widened, making the cabin appear more spacious.
When it comes to flawless design, the exterior of the Mazda6 ticks all the boxes. KODO Design is present in every detail of the body, with both the Tourer and the Saloon exquisitely presented. Features include 17” alloy wheels, LED headlights and privacy glass on the rear windows of both models. The Tourer also has roof rails, boosting the functionality of this model.
There is a choice of eight body colours. In addition to the brand-new Soul Red Crystal, there are silver, grey and blue shades available, such as Machine Grey and Deep Crystal Blue.
An eight-inch touchscreen sits at the centre of the dashboard, offering an infotainment system that includes Bluetooth, DAB radio and the Mazda Navigation System. i-ACTIVESENSE – Mazda’s safety tech – incorporates a variety of detection systems. These include Blind Spot Monitoring, Mazda Radar Cruise Control, and Advanced Smart City Brake Support.
Forward-thinking tech can also be found in the 360º view monitor and the touchscreen menu on the dashboard. But it’s the engine where Mazda’s modern technology shines. Jinba Ittai is present in the SKYACTIV Technology, used in the development of the Mazda engine. This tech enhances performance and produces a dynamic, efficient driving experience.
You can take your pick from the SKYACTIV-D diesel and SKYACTIV-G petrol engines. In addition to introducing the impressive SKYACTIV-G 2.5-litre, 194bhp petrol engine to the UK market with this new Mazda6, there is also the 2.0-litre SKYACTIV-G petrol engine. This has either 145 or 165bhp, offers lower emissions and potential improved fuel consumption.
If you want a diesel, the 2.2-litre SKYACTIV-D engine is available with 150bhp or 184bhp, making it ideal for long journeys or for those who tow heavy loads. It has Ad Blue, a liquid additive that is designed to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions.
