Facelifted Mazda6 Now in UK Showrooms

The facelifted Mazda6 range has already arrived in UK showrooms, as the company has introduced it earlier than it was originally planed to meet the strong demand for the model.

The 19 model line-up comes with a revised interior and exterior, important technical improvement that reduce fuel consumption by up to 6.4 percent and cut CO2 emissions by up to 6.1 percent. Customers can choose between a hatchback and an estate model (the saloon and the Sports Luxury are no longer brought to the UK), can opt for one of the six engines (three petrol and three diesel) and are offered four equipment levels (S, TS, TS2 and Sport).

The upgraded Mazda6 has been given a make-over that is much more than a cosmetic exercise. While the car has more aggressive front styling, the engines, suspension and steering have been fine-tuned, enhancing refinement. Mazda6 remains among the best-in-class for CO2 emissions and its ownership experience is underpinned by reduced costs and Mazda’s outstanding build quality and reliability,” said Mark Cameron, Sales Director, Mazda UK.

The Mazda6 engine line-up now includes a new 2 liter DISI petrol engine that offers 155hp (up from 147hp), while its 2.2 liter diesel unit now generates 129 hp (up from 125hp). In addition to that, the Sport 2.0 liter petrol model can now be ordered with a five speed automatic gearbox, while the top of the range diesel engine (2.2 liter) has had its power downgraded by 5 hp, but offers improved torque delivery and cut emissions.

With a continuing list price advantage versus the competition and lower rates of depreciation, we expect the revised Mazda6 to retain its leading position in the fleet market and provide a springboard for further fleet sales growth as it appeals to even more company car drivers. During the next 12 months, we expect to sell more than 10,500 new Mazda6 models in the UK – a rise of approximately 1,500 units compared with last year – with about 72 percent destined for fleet buyers,” added Cameron.
