New 2018 Mazda 6 Previewed Ahead of Official Reveal in LA
And it Looks Better Than Ever
Mazda announced it will be revealing the new Mazda 6 at the 2017 Los Angeles show on November 29th. You should be excited about it as the 2018 Mazda 6 is most likely to go a bit upscale. At least considering the latest information and two photographs released about the car.
Moving upscale isn’t an easy job for anyone, but Mazda turned out to be a reputable brand with fun and reliable cars. Now, they have to add a bit of refinement to their design as well as more powerful engines.
Which, by the way, brings us to the most important novelty for the Mazda 6.
It is already announced that the car will be getting two new motors. The 2.5-liter unit will gain cylinder deactivation system and maybe a bit more power. Actually, this engine will most likely debut for the 2018 Mazda CX-5 as well. Another drivers sweetheart, may I add.
The other motor is more important though. The 2.5-liter Mazda CX-9 unit will be deployed for the 2018 Mazda 6 as well. It may not be in the same state of tune as in the SUV, but it will be the most powerful for the car. Honestly, this is what we have been waiting for. Mazda reported earlier that this engine will deliver torque to the levels of V8 naturally aspirated motors with double the capacity. That is huge.
New 2018 Mazda 6 Safer than ever
As for other important novelties, please take a peek in the cabin. It features a slightly redesigned interior with a sleeker dash and finer center portion. The display, apparently, remained the same as before.
However, staying true to the design philosophy that has worked so well all these years isn’t a bad thing at all. On the other hand, Japanese engineers found a way to additionally improve the safety features by adding Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC), a 360-degree camera system and other advanced safety technology from Mazda’s i-ACTIVESENSE suite.
We better wait for the full reveal of the car that could potentially mark an important evolutionary step for the company. Hopefully, they’ll confirm some of our suspicions and bring us some exciting news, to boot.
