Last week Mazda gave us a preview of its new Mazda6 wagon before it makes its debut in Paris. Of course, it’s the practical twin to the stylish new Mazda6 sedan.
We like the current Mazda6 estate’s proportions and general shape and, now, we like the new model even more.
World Premiere of All-New Mazda6 Wagon at 2012 Paris Motor Show
Mazda Motor Corporation will hold the world premiere of the All-New Mazda6 wagon at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.
The All-New Mazda6 sedan, currently making its debut at the Moscow Motor Show, will be exhibited alongside the wagon.
Both models displayed at the Paris Motor Show will feature Mazda’s new SKYACTIV-D 2.2 clean diesel engine.
The SKYACTIV-D 2.2 diesel engine is available in Europe in either Standard Power or High Power versions, both compliant to Euro 6 emissions standards.
Additionally, the new Mazda6 will also be available in Europe with the SKYACTIV-G 2.0 and SKYACTIV-G 2.5 direct injection petrol engines. The powertrain line-up for Mazda6 models in Australia has not yet been announced.
The All-New Mazda6 is the flagship model for a new generation of Mazda products. It incorporates the very best of Mazda’s craftsmanship and technical expertise across all domains, from dynamic performance and design, through to environmental performance and safety.
It is the second of Mazda’s new generation of products which incorporate both the full range of SKYACTIV technologies and the new ‘KODO – Soul of Motion’ design theme.
It also features a range of advanced safety technologies and Mazda’s unique brake energy regeneration system, i-ELOOP.
Sales of the All-New Mazda6 will begin in Europe later this year and in Australia during the first quarter of 2013.
The 2012 Paris Motor Show, officially named Paris Mondial de l’Automobile 2012, begins on 27 September and runs through to 14 October.
Press days are 27 and 28 September, and the show will be opened to the public from 29 September to 14 October.
Mazda will hold its press conference from 12:45pm to 1:00pm on September 27, 2012 (local time).
