Mazda has finally revealed the face of the all-new 6 a month before the car is to make its first public appearance at the Moscow Motor Show on August 29.
The all-new Mazda 6 is the second of the Japanese carmaker's new generation of products that incorporate both its Skyactiv technologies and 'Kodo' design language.
It will also be the first model to be equipped with Mazda's i-ELOOP brake energy-regeneration system. Derived from the term "Intelligent Energy Loop," the i-ELOOP system is the world's first capacitor-based regenerative braking system, which, according to Mazda, can improve the car's fuel economy by up to 10 percent in real-world driving conditions.
Mazda added that the all-new 6 midsize sedan that will be on display at the Moscow Motor Show from August 29 to September 9 will be a Russian-specification model equipped with a direct-injection Skyactiv-G 2.0-liter gasoline engine and a six-speed Skyactiv-Drive automatic transmission.
The complete lineup of the Mazda 6 will reportedly be revealed in September at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.
