Pricing and CO2 revealed for facelifted Mazda6 Saloon and Tourer
The facelifted Mazda6 Tourer and Saloon go on sale this week, introducing new engine technologies, styling upgrades and cabin updates.
Previewed at last year’s LA Motor Show, the 2018 Mazda6 marks the UK debut of the carmaker’s Skyactiv-G 2.5-litre petrol engine, previously only sold in North America, Australia and Asia. The unit features cylinder deactivation that will switch off two cylinders between 25 and 50mph to improve fuel efficiency without impacting performance. It’s only available with the top-end Sport Nav+ Auto trim and brings CO2 emissions from 153g/km for the saloon.
In addition, Mazda has updated the 2.0-litre Skyactiv-G with new intake ports, new pistons and revised fuel injection and cooling while the higher-powered 2.2-litre Skyactiv-D diesel now offers 182bhp, up from 173bhp, with emissions from 124g/km.
The Mazda6 also introduces suspension fine tuning and component upgrades to improve ride comfort, bringing smoother driving and improved ride quality while engineering upgrades also bring steering improvements. In addition, the steering knuckles have been lowered for more neutral steering
In total, 24 models will be offered across the two bodystyles with four trim levels on offer – SE-L Nav+, SE-L LUX Nav+, Sport Nav+ and GT Sport Nav+.
The facelifted Mazda6 is available to order in petrol form from 20 July, with diesel models to arrive later. Prices range from £23,195 for the 2.0 145ps SE-L Nav+ petrol saloon to £33,585 for the 2.2 184ps GT Sport Nav+ Auto diesel tourer.
