LA Auto Show: 2018 Mazda6
The re-engineered 2018 Mazda6, powered by either the four-cylinder SKYACTIV-G 2.5 naturally aspirated engine or, for higher-grade models, also available with the 250 horsepower (on 93-octane) or 227 horsepower (with 87-octane) SKYACTIV-G 2.5T gasoline turbo engine paired to the six-speed SKYACTIV-DRIVE automatic transmission. Mazda6’s front seats are wider, with high-density, vibration-absorbing urethane foam designed to help keep front passengers’ spines in the natural S-shape humans use when standing. Available are ventilated front seats, 360⁰ View Monitor, a reconfigurable 7.0-inch TFT gauge display in higher-trim models and a new 8.0-inch MAZDA CONNECT infotainment display with sharper color contrast. The re-engineered, refined Mazda6 is expected to go on sale in Spring 2018.
