Paris 2012: Mazda 6 [Live Photos]
We were really pleased that Mazda did not alter the lines too much when making the estate version, and we would just as happily drive either. The pick of the engine range has to be Mazda’s new SKYACTIV 2.2-liter diesel engine, which is good for 173 hp. The diesel, along with the other engines a 2.0-liter and 2.5-liter, both of which are petrol-powered, are all Euro 6-compliant.
We can’t wait to get our hands on one of these, and give it a thorough test, because if it is good to drive (and we expect it to be, if the old model is anything to go by), then we expect it to be top of its class as a package.
