Mazda 6 Wagon

After the recent debut of the Mazda 6 Sedan comes the all new Mazda 6 Wagon. Its design is based on the stylish Mazda 6 Sedan. However few modifications at the rear make it into a classy wagon. This is thanks to extended roof and raised tailgate. It also comes with a large spoiler located on top of its rear windshield.

It also comes equipped with similar SKYACTIV engines. There is the SKYACTIV-G 2.0 petrol engine. This has an output of 156hp and 210Nm of torque. Next is the SKYACTIV-G 2.5 petrol engine with 256Nm of torque and 192hp. Both engines are paired with either a 6-speed SKYACTIV-Drive automatic transmission or a SKYACTIV-MT (manual transmission) gearbox. Precise and nimble driving performance is supported by both SKYACTIV-Drive, designed to control driving force and gear speed in order to give the car a responsive acceleration, and SKYACTIV-MT that offers a light and crisp shift feel. Both engines also have low vibrations and low noise output, giving the car a quiet and smooth feel.

A new system called i-ELLOP employs brake energy regeneration technology to charge the cars battery while another called i-stop cuts of an idle engine and re-starts it when the driver places his foot on the accelerator pedal. Both systems help boost overall fuel efficiency and are fitted as standard on the SKYACTIV-G 2.5 models. However the new 6 Wagon gets an all new SKYACTIV-D 2.2-liter four-cylinder, dual-stage turbocharged clean diesel engine. The SKYACTIV-D 2.2 diesel engine is available in either Standard Power or High Power versions. Power to the wheels is managed by finely tuned SKYACTIV-Chassis while an all new robust SKYACTIV-Body that uses ultra-high tensile steel that is not only lighter but also improves the overall rigidity of the body. 

Posh interior

Inside it has room for five occupants just like its sedan sister. The driver sits on a comfortable adjustable front seat and can also adjust the tilt and telescoping steering wheel to find a suitable driving position. The front dashboard has also been restyled to give the interior a posh look. The restyled instrument clusters glow in a white light while a third 3.5-inch multi-information display shows important vehicle information to the driver. Stylish air vents, chucky buttons and the classy leather interior further improves the overall feel of the car. It also comes with the new 5-inch display located in the center panel. The screen also functions as a display for the Bose audio system that comes with an in-dash six CD changer.
