“With SKYACTIV Technology and the SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter gasoline engine, Mazda has showcased that improving engine and vehicle efficiencies can still produce a dynamic-performing driving machine, as evidenced by the 2012 Mazda3 and 2013 CX-5,” said Don Romano, President, Mazda Canada. “The all-new 2014 Mazda6 will be the latest Mazda to break out of its segment’s monotonous mold and be fiercely competitive versus the current sales leaders.”
For North America, the 2014 Mazda6 will feature a SKYACTIV-G gasoline engine and be available with two transmissions, the SKYACTIV-MT six-speed manual and SKYACTIV-Drive six-speed automatic. Best-in-class fuel economy also is targeted, as was achieved on the CX-5 compact crossover SUV. Final specifications and pricing will be announced closer to the vehicle’s sale date. The global lineup of the all-new Mazda6 is expected to make its world debut at the upcoming 2012 Paris Motor Show in late September.
