Alan Gibson unveils the new Mazda6
Over the weekend of 26-27th January, a nationwide event was held across Mazda dealerships to mark the launch of the all-new Mazda6. While the celebrations may be over, Alan Gibson is pleased to announce the inclusion of the new Mazda6 in Basingstoke in our line-up this year. If you’re looking for the ultimate driving experience and a comfortable, economical ride, now is the ideal time to test drive the Mazda6.
Design-wise, the new 6 features the so-called “KODO – Soul of Motion” body shape and build, which will influence all future Mazda designs from this point onwards. Based on the design of the highly successful CX-5 SUV, the Mazda6’s flowing form and subtle contours create an instant impression. The front grille, in particular, grabs the attention of anyone who lays eyes on it. Thanks to the new design, the body itself is constructed from extremely lightweight materials, leading to increased cornering capability and overall responsiveness.
The interior of the Mazda6 is just as luxurious as the elegant exterior would suggest. In redesigning the cabin so that the controls are laid out unobtrusively and easily within reach, Mazda have created more space on the inside for both the driver and passengers. Thanks to safety features such as airbags and the award-winning Rear Vehicle Monitoring System, you know that your passengers are secure and that the driver is in full control. That’s why the 6 has been awarded a five-star safety rating from NCAP, and it’s why anyone who drives a Mazda6 has peace of mind on the road.
With a choice of either Saloon or Tourer, the Mazda6 is a powerful vehicle. The engine range (comprising a choice of 2.0-litre petrol or 2.2-litre diesel) gives a top speed of up to 139mph, and a 0-60mph acceleration of 10.5 seconds, which is very lively for a family car. There is also a choice of six-speed gearbox, either automatic or manual. Whichever you choose, though, you’ll feel the benefits of the SKYACTIV fuel technology, which has been implemented across the engine range. SKYACTIV is largely responsible for the Mazda6 winning the What Car? Car of the Year 2013 Ultra-low-carbon award, and with a combined fuel consumption of 67.3mpg and CO2 emissions of only 108g/km (saloon version), it’s easy to see why.
A representative of Mazda commented “The all-new Mazda6 Saloon is the 2nd of our new generation of cars to feature the full range of our pioneering SKYACTIV Technology and ’KODO - Soul of Motion’ design. With this new flagship model we’re celebrating the pleasure of exhilarating driving experiences and the importance of emotionally appealing design. And with our SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY, this saloon also combines the most advanced safety features with outstanding fuel consumption. So once again we’ve defied convention in achieving environmental and functional excellence without compromising your enjoyment of exciting, powerful driving and eye-catching aesthetics.”
