Officially unveiled in Frankfurt last month, Mazda took the wraps off their new 6 for an admiring Australian audience at this years Sydney Motor Show and it looks just as good in the flesh. As the cover was being peeled back Mazda revealed that Australian pricing for the 6 is expected to start at around $30,000.
Mazda will be offering a sedan and wagon version of the Mazda6 and it will feature Mazda???s 2.5-litre engine producing 125kW and 226Nm almost a 10 percent increase over the outgoing model.
While final specifications and pricing have yet to be confirmed, the all-new Mazda6 will be equipped with air-conditioning, remote keyless entry, power mirrors and windows, remote central locking, six airbags, ABS anti-lock brakes and MP3 player connectivity.
Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and Traction Control (TCS) will be available across the range, which combined with a stiffer body shell ensures that the new Mazda6 promises to be more than just a pretty face. We will update pricing and specifications as soon as the details are released.
As with the new Mazda2, Mazda have managed to increase the size of the new 6 while reducing weight (when compared to the outgoing model) achieved through the use of high-tensile, lighter weight steel in the construction process.
