The new Mazda6 is actually The latest generation of the popular Mazda6 was launched in China earlier this year with the Olympic hero Michael Phelphs at the helm of the advertising campaign which showed his powerful swimming stance compared to the Mazda 6?s front end. Its not entirely clear if his face has lead the new Mazda6 to success in China, however FAW-Mazda are going ahead with the launch of a 2.0L version which FAW-MAzda head man Mr. Hong Yu Jiang claims will sell at least 5000 units per month.

The new Mazda 6 is known as the Mazda Rui Yi in China to distinguish it from the previous Mazda6 which is still in production and is aimed at the price conscious consumer, where as the new Mazda6 (the Rui Yi) is seen as a more premium product. The 2.0L Rui Yi will sell for 176,800rmb to 190,480rmb depending on specification, and comes with a choice of six speed manual or 5 speed automatic gearboxes. FAW-Mazda are boasting that the fuel consumption for the Rui Yi is among the lowest in the 2.0L class, and a top bhp figure of 146bhp and max torque of 184Nm at 6500rpm.

Hopefully the 2.0L Rui Yi will have a bigger strike on the mid size sedan segment than its 2.5L counterpart.
