2012 Paris Auto Show - 2014 Mazda 6

Mazda 6 Sedan - @CarConnection
Mazda showcases its 2014 Mazda 6 at the 2012 Paris Auto Show, boasting new technology and styling. Mazda has also taking the show as an opportunity to broadcast their new Skydrive campaign.

Skydrive is Mazda's initiative to make efficient cars, incorporating technology in weight reduction, drive train, aerodynamics and engine performance. In South Africa we have already seen the Skydrive technology in the CX-5.

New styling and design is evident in the layout of the front with angled flat front grille and headlights, making the 6 look sporty and classy at the same time. The rear is also redone, but is very similar to other manufactures, such as the Hyundai Sonata. Overall the design is simple yet attractive.

Safety is also one of the key selling points in the new 6. Night driving is improved with auto high-beams and headlights, flashing break lights when an emergency stop is done and Smart City Brake which is similar to park assist technology that will detect collisions at low speeds and automatically apply the brakes.

The Mazda 6 will be available in sedan and station wagon and I predict that it will due well in the South African car market due to the long standing Mazda support here. Looking forward to it.

  2. Hi, it's a lovely blog. I'd like to share. This vehicle is absolutely gorgeous. However... I don't like the low ride of sedans. While the CX-5 is also a very well-rounded vehicle, I really do wish they had put some more styling cues from the 6 into it! thanks, @Linda:)

    1. thanks for that, it's a very good point.

  3. I think the Mazda 6 is still a great ride. Call me a sucker for low-riding driver seats but it's a completely different feel when you feel your near the road while you have fantastic handling and turning capabilities. Regardless what people say, it is so beautiful, I sometimes forget it's a Mazda and think that I'm sitting in a European luxury car... but then again, the Mazda is known for producing fantastically beautiful machines.
