The New Mazda 6 Represents the Ultimate in Refinement
The exterior design further accentuates the essential elegance of the new Mazda 6. Features such as the new front grille contributed to a settled nature of a low centre of gravity, creating a look of horizontal movement that emphasize breadth and maturity. This image of powerful motion flows from the front to the rear combination lamps, featuring a sleek, sharp, and power physique, refining the look of the new Mazda 6 dignified beauty.
Exciting New Design
The new front grille design accentuates the look of depth, a strong framework, a low center of gravity and a wide stance.
The new headlamps adopt a sleek, wide shape and present lines of light that create a bolder expression.
A new design for the rear-facing section of the trunk lid and the horizontal line of its extended garnish lend a refined air befitting a sedan.
Further refinement to the instrument panel and door trim designs better highlights the breadth of the cabin, creating a sense of speed from front to rear. The use of new materials such as the aluminum film layered over a sculpted acrylic base or the authentic Japanese Sen wood for the luxury variant has redefined interior luxury. The result is a luxurious cabin that provides superior comfort to all occupants.
Highly Efficient SKYACTIV-G 2.0/2.5 Direct-Injection Gasoline Engine
This 2.0-liter engine features a balance between the spirited drive of its powerful low- to mid-range torque and excellent fuel efficiency. New air intake port, new shapes of piston in the areas of its top/edge of top/skirt, new piston rings, new fuel injection system and Water Flow Management system are incorporated. These changes increase low-end torque by 6.2 percent, while also reducing real-world fuel consumption and particulate matter formation during combustion. The result is enhanced levels of dynamic performance, fuel economy, and environmental friendliness. With a high 13.0:1 compression ratio, the reduced weight of an aluminum-alloy cylinder block, and a balancer unit that reduces low frequency rattling, the SKYACTIV-G 2.5 engine achieves high levels of dynamic performance, fuel economy and quietness.
CYLINDER DEACTIVATION [SKYACTIV-G 2.5 ONLY]
The system shuts down two of the engine’s four cylinders in light-load situations, such as when cruising at a constant speed. Running on two cylinders reduces pumping loss and mechanical resistance. Deactivation is achieved via a switching mechanism in the hydraulic lash adjusters (HLA) of the ﬁrst and fourth cylinders. When running on all four cylinders, these serve as the fulcrum (pivot point) for each rocker arm, and the arms operate the intake and exhaust valves. Automated releasing of lockpin in HLA switches the fulcrum to the valve side, stopping the movement of the valves to deactivate the outer two cylinders. Airﬂow intake volume, fuel injection amount and ignition timing are precisely controlled to allow the engine to switch smoothly between two-cylinder and four-cylinder operation. Cylinder deactivation is more effective at low speeds, improving fuel economy by approximately 20 percent when driving at a constant 40km/h, and by approximately 5 percent at a constant 80km/h.
360° VIEW MONITOR
[SKYACTIV-G 2.5 ONLY]
Using four cameras on the front, sides and rear of the vehicle, this system shows the area around the car on a central display. Eight parking sensors at the front and rear detect proximity to obstacles, and an alarm sounds. The system also assists with the perception of blind spots. Because the driver can see blind spots and the distance to obstacles can be seen when pulling into or out of a garage, approaching T-shaped intersections or passing an oncoming car on a narrow road, the system greatly contributes to the prompt avoidance of danger.When displaying the view in front of or behind the vehicle, the surroundings can also be seen at a glance with the separate overhead view. At 177 degrees, the front and rear wide–angle views display an extensive area. The front wheels are visible in the side views. After the cameras have been turned on, each type of view can be controlled with the touch screen or commander control.
