The Mazda6 Is Finally Getting A Turbocharger

The Mazda6 Is Finally Getting A Turbocharger

The third-generation Mazda6 has been around since 2012, with this revision marking its third in a six-year span. The vehicle maker is not yet ready to talk price, but the former MPS carried a $6K premium over the highest-priced 6 at the time.

Mazda didn't clarify what those power figures would look like, but if the outputs remain the same from the CX-9 (227 horsepower and a truly silly 310 lb-ft of torque) then I'd say we're in good shape.

The styling updates will bring the Mazda 6 further in-line with the brand's latest offerings like the new CX-9 and CX-5 SUVs, and Mazda has worked to refine the interior and exterior with new lines and more premium materials.

Aside from the new turbo engine, the 2018 Mazda6 will be "thoroughly re-engineered", according to Mazda.

Mazda says the engine offers "an effortless performance feel that is equal parts composure and excitement", which sounds just as pleasant as can be, and nearly too good to be true. It benefits from cylinder-deactivation which allows it to seamlessly switch between four and two cylinders operation for better fuel economy. The midsize sedan also gets Mazda's latest 360-degree View Monitor.

An example is the use of Japanese Sen Wood, often used in Japanese furniture, giving the Mazda6 a more premium feel that sits in line with the model's position in the line up. "Overall the design is more distinctive, premium, lovely and dignified, as befits the flagship of Mazda's passenger auto lineup", Mazda said in a statement. The tweaks include a restyled grille, new headlights and a revised bumper, and we can pick out a new wheel design based on the teaser photo.

Note the simplified reorganization of the vents and controls.

Mazda has confirmed it will soon be introducing a sporty turbo version of the humble Mazda6, confirming the plans in the lead up to the new model's debut at the LA auto show.
