2014 Mazda 6 – Details and Costs

by SpeedLux

The much Anticipated car from Mazda is all set to come up by 2014, and it was reportedly launched yesterday at the Mosocw Motor Show, It is a fresh Entrant into the midsize sedan Segment. Mazda is on a big push to improve the efficiency of all its new vehicles by using a suite of technologies called SkyActiv. The company already dropped a new 40-mpg SkyActiv four-cylinder engine into the 2012 Mazda 3, launched the efficient 2013 CX-5 crossover, and now is following up with the 2014 Mazda 6 sedan.

Powertrain-

The Russian-spec Mazda6 is powered by a SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter gasoline engine that makes 134 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 155 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm. The engine can be mated to a SKYACTIV-MT 6-speed manual transmission or SKYACTIV-Drive 6-speed automatic transmission. When the 2014 Mazda6 goes on sale in the U.S. early next year, it will be powered by a SKYACTIV-G 2.5-liter gasoline engine (will also be available in the Russian market) that makes 189 horsepower at 5,700 rpm and 189 lb-ft of torque at 3,250 rpm.
While the 2014 Mazda6 is the second vehicle to get all the SKYACTIV technologies, it is the first to get the brand’s new ‘i-ELOOP,’ the world’s-first capacitor-based regenerative braking system. Mazda says that in real-world driving conditions, the i-ELOOP will improve fuel economy by up to 10 percent.

FEATURES-

Exteriors-
While on th Out side, the 2014 Mazda 6 follows Mazda’s new Kodo design philosophy. The semi-circle front grille, angled headlights with chrome eyebrows, and angular lower fascia are all reminiscent of the CX-5. As on the Takeri concept, aggressive flares over the front wheels taper softly into the front doors. The headlights get Mazda’s first-ever use of LEDs, for a halo ring illumination. While the front half of the 2014 Mazda 6 has plenty of styling drama, the rear is much more sedate. The roofline and rear glass slope gently into a stubby trunk with an integrated spoiler. Narrow taillights wrap onto each fender, and a silver chrome strip connects the lights above the license-plate indentation.

Interiors-
Inside the cabin is Understated,The instrument cluster has a three-binnacle design, with the right-most spot occupied by 3.5-inch LCD trip computer. The tidy center stack, large touch-screen radio, and clear three-dial climate controls are all familiar from the CX-5 version. The interior is composed mostly of dark plastics, but satin metal trim pieces help break it up and keep the design from being too dull. Not bad we should say.

Safety Conditions-
While talking about safety in the new 2014 Mazda 6, the 2014 Mazda 6 receives an array of new active safety gadgets. Automatic high-beams and adaptive headlights help with night visibility. A new feature called Emergency Stop Signal makes the taillights flash rapidly when the driver brakes especially hard. Designed to attract attention from other drivers, the system is unlikely to be legal under America’s strict lighting standards. A lane-departure warning system and Smart City Brake Support, which can apply the brakes to prevent collisions at speeds up to 19 mph, are more likely to be sold on the American-spec Mazda 6. Hill-start assist and a blind-spot warning system also are available.

Details about the price aren’t out yet, but we suppose that they will be soon brought to our notice,
and what we would like to comment about the new 2014 Mazda 6 is that, as such Mazda has been struggling in its competitive midsize sedan segment, in the US market,and now that the 2014 Mazda 6 has come in, its going to face a tough competition ahead.But Mazda hopes its blend of daring design, improved fuel economy, and an engaging driving experience will make the 2014 Mazda 6 sell in greater numbers than its predecessor ever did.
So lets hope for the best of Mazda 6. Stay Tuned for More Updates guys.
