Displaying style and functionality in equal measure, the Mazda6 has been a flagship family car ever since its inception. With a fresh makeover and a host of new, award-winning technologies, the Mazda6 looks set to continue its dominance of the UK family car market.
The lean exterior design, with angular headlights and athletic bodylines, gives an indication that performance is prioritised, and the wide stance ensures well-balanced handling. The new model will feature pioneering ‘KODO – Soul of Motion’ design to enhance its sporty appeal even further, and ultra high-tensile steel reinforcements to the body frame increase rigidity by up to 30 percent whilst lowering the vehicle’s overall weight.
At Johnsons Cars we appreciate a premium interior design, and the Mazda6 has a spacious cabin, with plenty of legroom and high quality upholstery. Motorists can select the Tourer model of the new Mazda6 for up to 1,648-litres of cargo volume, and whether you choose the Tourer or the Saloon, there are three equipment grades to choose from: SE, SE-L and Sport. This allows you to pick out the interior and exterior styling that suits your requirements. The new Mazda6 also has an improved audio system to increase drive enjoyment, which includes at least four speakers as standard.
Performance and efficiency is where Mazda’s latest offering really impressed us, however. The choice of a 2.0-litre petrol engine, or a 2.2-litre diesel, is supplemented by a manual or automatic six-speed gearbox. For extreme speed, on the motorway or from a standing start, the 2.2-litre diesel 173bhp diesel engine in the Saloon Sport can accelerate from 0-60mph in an unmistakably rapid 8.4 seconds, with a high speed of 134mph. For those who look for more than blistering speed, all-new SKYACTIV technology is built into each engine. Systems like i-ELOOP can save money and reduce a driver’s carbon footprint by recycling energy. The resultant fuel economy, as efficient as 67.3mpg combined, shows just how efficient the new Mazda6 can be, and CO2 emissions can be lowered to just 108g/km.
Certain to be one of 2013’s standout cars, Johnsons Cars is excited about the new Mazda6. If you are similarly interested, contact our dealerships today to book a test drive.
