2012 Mazda 6 – The end of 2012 represents the next generation of Mazda Mazda 6th The midrange model is easier to get a more dynamic look and the new, up to 20 percent more fuel-efficient engines Sky Active. Now the new model was still under the old body shot as Erl King. Have aside from the hybrid technology, Toyota as a leader in the space in the Hall of Fame of the development car safely, Japanese brands are not just as a major trendsetter. For many years it was mainly the good quality image that convinced the customer. But times have changed. As Hyundai and Kia from Korea to attract up to seven-year warranty, and even the French cars now noticeably more reliable than they were ten years ago. This development is mainly smaller Japanese manufacturers like Mazda in a tight spot.
But with the Japanese can obviously handle stress well. The exit of major shareholder Ford in 2008, the brand seems not slow down, but rather inspired to have. For since the development department to top form. Example Mazda CX-5: The compact SUV Mazda launches in early summer of 2012 not only a very modern design language, but also highly efficient engines and a new platform. On the so-called Sky Active architecture that is flexible in length, width and wheelbase, and the next is based Mazda 6, the Japanese think the end of 2012 and early 2013 to bring into the trade.
2012 Mazda 6 sedan version of the coupe-like surprise – Especially the very coupé-like saloon drawn dynamically therefore comes as a surprise. It is longer than its predecessor by almost four inches, but is slightly flatter and wider. The stretched by the same amount wheelbase means that the new Mazda 6 is particularly tired of standing on the street. The same goes for the wagon version following later, the remains but with a length of approximately 4.80 meters in approximately the same length and thus is shorter than the sedan. Both versions of the Mazda 6 offers over 500 liters of luggage capacity. Whether it will also reflect a hatchback version with a large tailgate has not yet been determined. At Mazda, they are thinking, instead, a crossover model based on the same hang up – a strategy, as they also pursued with the Citroën DS5.
Get the new 2012 Mazda 6 because of the lush dimensions a weight problem? Quite the contrary: In comparison to the predecessor, it is slim, according to our information about 100 kilograms. When saving an additional new brake energy recovery system helps with two generators. A load coasting special capacitors that supply the electrical system. In combination with Mazda’s proprietary start-stop system brings a reduction in fuel consumption between five and twelve percent, depending on driving conditions.
Gasoline engine with 165 hp and 180 hp diesel with a maximum – On the drive side to the market launch of the Mazda 6 are end 2012, a two-liter four-cylinder with around 165 hp and a 2.2-liter diesels with outputs ranging from 130 to 180 hp (standard consumption only four L/100 km) available. Later, additional engines with smaller displacements follow.
What makes the new Sky Active engines is the same compression ratio of 14:1, which is very high for the gasoline and diesel for the very low. Thanks to the low compression-ignition engine creates the Mazda 6 in the future emission standard Euro 6 without NOx aftertreatment. The gasoline that we could drive already in the prototype stage, with strong likes and even pulling power delivery.
