Mazda has announced UK pricing and specification for both the Saloon and Tourer versions of its flagship model. Featuring an upgraded cabin, revised styling and enhanced technology, plus the UK debut of Mazda’s cylinder deactivation SKYACTIV-G 2.5-litre petrol engine, the updated Mazda6 also sees the popular SKYACTIV-D 2.2-litre diesel engine benefit from a power upgrade to 184ps.
Priced from £23,195 to £33,585 the combined Saloon and Tourer range features 25 models across four trim levels: SE-L Nav+, SE-L LUX Nav+, Sport Nav+ and GT Sport Nav+. Matched exclusively to the new range-topping GT Sport Nav+ trim, Mazda’s 2.5-litre SKYACTIV-G engine makes its UK debut in the new Mazda6. With a cylinder deactivation system, this direct-injection four-cylinder engine seamlessly switches between four and two-cylinder operation to improve real-world fuel economy at no cost to performance.
Fitted in the large Mazda CX-9 SUV, and the award-winning CX-5 in certain global markets, the 2.5-litre SKYACTIV-G makes its UK debut in the new Mazda6 where it’s paired with Mazda’s SKYACTIV-DRIVE six-speed automatic gearbox in both Saloon and Tourer models.
“With new powertrain technology, fresh premium design details inside and out, revised model grades and more standard technology, the new Mazda6 is a thoroughly re-engineered and refined update of our stylish flagship,” commented Jeremy Thomson, Managing Director Mazda Motors UK.
