Mazda6 update to benefit from turbo power, smarter active safety technology and more refined styling
Mazda will reveal a Mazda6 update at this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show. Perhaps one of the biggest highlights of this revision is the introduction of a 2.5 litre turbo petrol engine, which has been borrowed from the highly acclaimed CX-9 SUV.
Mazda says the engine will have the efficiency of a four-cylinder motor, but with the torque and performance of a 4 litre V8. Interestingly, the engine will feature cylinder deactivation technology to help save fuel.
A revised Mazda CX-5 which will have the same engine technology will also break cover in LA.
There’ll also be improved safety kit too, with the car now able to identify and react to potential hazards and the flagship Atenza will get 360 degree camera system. Mazda has also upgraded the adaptive cruise control system so that it can automatic move and stop with car with the flow of traffic.
Mazda is also said to have tweaked and refined the styling, further enhancing the Mazda6’s quality and sophistication inside and out.
The Mazda6 update will be unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show on the 29th of November.
