All-new Mazda 6 Range on sale January

The all new Mazda6 range will go on sale in January offering company car drivers a choice of two diesel and two petrol engines in Saloon and Tourer bodystyles

The all new Mazda6 range will go on sale in January offering company car drivers a choice of two diesel and two petrol engines in Saloon and Tourer bodystyles. Company car drivers can achieve top performance with the benefit of excellent fuel economy. Engineers have been able to deliver upper medium-segment leading environmental-friendliness without resorting to the smaller engine displacements of some rivals due to Mazda’s breakthrough SKYACTIV technology. The diesel engines are the 2.2-litre SKYACTIV-D 150ps and 175ps and the petrol engines are the 2.0-litre SKYACTIV-G 145ps and 165ps

Mazda Head of Fleet Steve Tomlinson said “the all-new Mazda6 is the no compromise choice for company car drivers. They can have power, performance and driving fun with low emissions and excellent fuel economy due to our SKYACTIV technology. That cannot be obtained from rival manufacturers who have resorted to smaller engine displacements in pursuit of emission and fuel economy improvements. On top of all that company car drivers’ save themselves money with the 2.2-litre SKYACTIV-D 150ps engine powering the all-new Mazda6, having the lowest CO2 emissions figure in the class. That also translates into Class 1A National Insurance savings for employers.”

The Mazda6 will be offered in six trim levels; SE, SE-Nav, SE-L, SE-L Nav, Sport and Sport Nav. Standard specification on the all-new Mazda6 SE Nav is generous and includes satellite navigation with TomTom technology, 17-inch alloy wheels, daytime running lights, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) with Traction Control System (TCS), cruise control, air-conditioning, integrated Bluetooth® and Mazda Multimedia system with a 5.8-inch colour touch screen display.

The all-new Mazda6 will be the second of the manufacturer’s new generation models to be launched with SKYACTIV technology following the arrival earlier this year of the all-new Mazda CX5. The CX-5 was the sixth generation vehicle for Mazda and embodies both Mazda’s sophisticated new SKYACTIV technology and the Japanese company's head-turning new KODO Soul of Motion Design direction.

Many manufacturers have introduced smaller engines into their diesel range to win over company drivers, fuel costs and low emissions is top of the list, but then these cars noticeably lose power and performance. Mazda’s unique SKYACTIV technology delivers major fuel savings and emission reductions without any power or performance compromise. The all-new Mazda6 Saloon SE Nav with a P11D value of £22,340 has lower emissions than the equivalent Passat priced at £21,710 and the rival Ford Mondeo priced at £21,740.
