The all-new Mazda6 with its unique SKYACTIV technology
Following the success of the Mazda 6 it continues to impress perticularly with its new SKYACTIV technology
The beginning of a new year is always a popular time amongst car manufacturers, and this January Mazda chose to launch its all-new Mazda6. With its SKYACTIV technology giving it a competitive edge in the area of fuel economy, and with low CO2 emission levels, What Car? magazine voted the Mazda6 its Ultra-low-carbon Car of the Year award for 2013.
Mazda has demonstrated its faith in the new “Kodo – Soul of Motion” design concept, first seen in the CX-5 SUV, by building the Mazda6 around it. Based on the appearance of the cheetah, the Mazda6 aims to replicate the sleekness and agility of the animal. Its bold front grille and prominent bumpers combine with strong-looking shoulders and sleek rearward-leading body lines to give the impression of power and speed, even when the car is at a standstill. The Mazda6 is built around an ultra-high tensile steel body shell which, due to its added strength and lightness, greatly improves the car’s manoeuvrability and fuel economy.
For those looking for an executive car, the four-door Saloon model will prove ideal. For those with a family, or perhaps more luggage to carry, the five-door Tourer estate allows 506 litres to be loaded with the rear seats upright, and up to 1,648 litres with the rear seats folded. With three equipment grades, the SE, SE-L and the Sport, there is a model to suit almost all tastes and budgets. With safety in mind, the multiple airbag and Rear Vehicle Monitoring systems help to ensure the Mazda6 was given the maximum five-star EuroNCAP safety rating.
Under the bonnet drivers will find a 143bhp or 163bhp, 2.0-litre petrol engine, or alternatively a 2.2-litre, 148bhp or 173bhp diesel engine. The SKYACTIV powertrain includes a six-speed gearbox, either manual or automatic, and the new technology ensures a combined fuel economy of up to 67.3 MPG. The 2.2-litre 148bhp diesel engine has an award-winning CO2 emission level of just 108g/km, whilst the 173bhp version of the same engine will accelerate the Mazda6 from 0-62mph in 7.9 seconds.
Those motorists who enjoy building number plate messages should be aware of the fact that cars registered before the end of September will get a coveted “13” (“B”) licence plate.
