Mazda 6 (2008 - 2012)

Mazda6 facelift to be unveiled in Geneva

26 January 2010 - A new facelift version of the Mazda6 will make its world premiere at this year's Geneva Motor Show in March. This new, upgraded version enhances the strengths of its predecessor, while improving refinement, cabin ambience, environmental compatibility and safety performance.

The new Mazda family face is introduced, along with new headlamps and rear lights, for a more sporty appearance and a clearer, premium identity. Six power units will be available for the Mazda6 facelift, including a new 2.0-litre DISI petrol engine that uses less fuel and produces fewer emissions than the 2.0-litre engine it replaces.

Its five-speed automatic transmission was fine-tuned especially for this new petrol engine to deliver an optimal combination of acceleration and fuel economy. Updated versions of the Mazda MZR 1.8 and 2.5-litre engines complete the petrol line-up. The MZR-CD 2.2-litre turbo diesel engine is available in three power derivatives: from 129 to 180ps.

The Mazda6 facelift also features new chassis settings and several new active safety features, like a new pivoting adaptive front lighting system and hill-launch assist. Upgraded versions of the new Mazda6 facelift will go on sale in Europe this spring.
