2014 Mazda6 estate
It all comes down to relationships. This is the spirit of the all-new Mazda6, a car built to be an extension of its driver and in harmony with the road. A car that begs to be driven from the very first time one lays eyes on it.
Mazda is reaching for greater heights in a flagship for a new generation and a new level of driving pleasure. With the distinct design, intuitive functionality and exceptional responsiveness that are essential elements of every Mazda. But also blending a dynamic, emotional appeal with the composure mandatory for Mazda’s top model. This, of course, posed challenges for designers and engineers as they sought to balance potentially conflicting attributes like form and function, performance and efficiency, comfort and practicality, uniqueness and mass appeal. And in the all-important reputation-making CDsegment, no less.
Always ready to fulfil the driver’s every wish, the SKYACTIV powertrains provide unrivalled linearity and responsiveness. They’re a perfect match for the new Mazda6’s equally precise handling, founded on agile yet stable steering and suspension feedback that puts the driver in absolute control. This model marks the latest evolution of Sustainable Zoom-Zoom, Mazda’s long-term vision to develop technology for exceptionally safe and environmentally friendly vehicles that also provide the greatest possible driving pleasure. To deliver top-class fuel economy, the all-new Mazda6 combines the lightweight design common to all SKYACTIV components with uniquely innovative engines and transmissions and Mazda’s unique i-ELOOP brake energy regeneration system.
It’s remarkably safe thanks to the SKYACTIV-Body, whose highly rigid structure absorbs impact energy and channels it away from the cabin for segment-leading crash protection. Add in the enviable range of active safety technology, and you have an environment where the driver can concentrate on the driving experience while passengers relax and enjoy the ride.
And they’ll be comfortable, too. Despite its compact look, the rear-leaning cabin – an integral part of the uniquely bold KODO design – exudes strength and vitality – offering a spacious interior with a refreshingly ergonomic layout in which controls and features are cleverly positioned for the utmost in convenience and flexibility.
In short, the all-new Mazda6 is a stunningly fashioned car that’s both safe and efficient, uniting a smooth, refined drive with precise, linear handling to a degree that most CDsegment models in Europe can only dream of. And it’s here, today.
