Even in a fiercely contested market, Mazda’s innovative KODO:Soul of Motion design language makes the Mazda6 Saloon stand out for its sleek, emotive and athletic looks. Using award-winning SKYACTIV Technology, the Mazda6 Saloon delivers an exhilarating driving experience with assured performance and outstanding fuel economy. The inclusion of the MZD-Connect infotainment system and sophisticated technologies in the optional Safety Pack, make the Mazda6 Saloon a highly potent rival to its closest competitors.
Sporty, powerful and refined, the styling of the Mazda6 Saloon will be sure to stir emotions. Embracing Mazda’s KODO: Soul of Motion design language, which is modelled on the movement of animals in the wild, the Mazda6 Saloon conveys a sense of forward motion at all times, and shows the influence of Mazda’s acclaimed “Takeri” concept car. The wide purposeful grille, narrow headlights, LED fog lights* and daytime running lights are flanked by powerful shoulders that give the front profile a hugely assertive character. At the same time the athletic, muscular bodywork ensures that, from whatever angle it is viewed, the Mazda6 Saloon leaves a lasting impression.
Hugely rewarding performance and driving dynamics
The advanced SKYACTIV Technology has an unerring focus on creating a true feeling of unity between driver and machine – or jinba ittai, as it is known in its native Japan. With exhilarating power, responsive handling, and leading aerodynamics, you will be able to experience a truly thrilling drive each and every time.
Buyers can choose between the SKYACTIV-G 2.0 litre petrol engine with 145PS or 165PS, and the SKYACTIV-D 2.2 litre diesel engine with 150PS or 175PS. Both engines deliver an extraordinary amount of refinement, especially taking into account the performance they offer. The 175ps engine, when fitted with a six-speed manual transmission, can accelerate from a standing start to 62mph in just 7.9 seconds. Even the 145PS petrol can achieve the same feat in a very respectable 9.5 seconds. SE-L specifications and above offer you the choice of an impressively responsive six-speed automatic gearbox.
Luxurious and refined interior
Engineered to offer the utmost in luxury interior design, the Mazda6 Saloon pays close attention to even the smallest detail, optimising the driving experience so that you feel at one with the car. From the leather seats* to the intuitive, ergonomic design, each feature has been developed with the driver in mind. Front and rear passengers can enjoy an overarching impression of space thanks to the abundant headroom and legroom. Meanwhile, the head-up display on Sport Nav models places information right in the driver’s eye line and the backlit instruments and large dials accentuate the sporty and contemporary ambience. Loadspace is also plentiful at 489 litres.
Stay connected – and comfortable
Modern driving is about so much more than just the performance and appearance. The Mazda6 Saloon looks to establish a connection with the driver through providing as much information and driver-convenience equipment as possible. Through the 7” colour touch-screen of the MZD-Connect infotainment system, you will be able to access navigation (where fitted) and entertainment options safely and easily, along with a high-quality DAB radio. Plus, with USB Connectivity and Integrated Bluetooth®, taking command of your smartphone while on the move ensures you can always stay in touch, no matter where you’re headed.
For drivers using the Mazda6 Saloon on long journeys the cruise control, height-adjustable seats and air-conditioning that feature on every model will be a particular relief to keep refreshed and comfortable during long hours at the wheel.
Exceptional fuel economy and low emissions
Innovative i-Stop technology keeps emissions low by cutting the engine when idling in traffic, and restarting again using combustion energy. This is complimented by Mazda’s SKYACTIV Technology featured in the engine, transmission, body and chassis to deliver enhanced efficiency without compromising driving pleasure. The 150PS diesel engine is particularly impressive in this regard, achieving exceptional fuel economy of up to 68.9mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 107g/km, meaning exemption from Vehicle Excise Duty in the first year of ownership and an annual duty of just £20 thereafter.
Outstanding safety measures
With the new SKYACTIV-Body reinforcing the strength and rigidity of the vehicle by approximately 30%, the safety and durability of the Mazda6 Saloon has been achieved using advanced lightweight materials. The superb safety is enhanced by a host of advanced features, resulting in a five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP. Among the advanced active safety features available is Smart City Brake Support, a system designed to avoid or reduce the impact of low-speed collisions. An Electronic parking brake is standard to all specifications, along with a Thatcham category 1 alarm and immobiliser.
On Sport Nav models, an optional safety pack is available containing further safety features for that added peace of mind including Adaptive LED Headlights, Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Rear Smart City Brake Support, Lane-keep Assist System with Driver Attention Alert.
