To reflect an atmosphere of sporty sophistication combined with powerful dynamism, the front of the car bears a new version of Mazda's five-pointed grille as well as an air intake design similar to the one featured on the RX-8 sports coupe. The enlarged front bumper and the rear spoiler both play an aerodynamic role in improving dynamic stability while enhancing the overall appearance of the concept car. Flared wheel arches all round and 18-inch Michelin Pilot Sport tyres also underline the pronounced character.
An all-new traction system is employed, effortlessly transmitting the power of the Mazda 6 MPS concept car onto the road. The 4WD system used in the Mazda 6 is combined here with an active torque control. The result is an electronically controlled torque-split 4WD system that is suitable for high performance cars and gives precise tyre-to-road contact even at high revs. The active torque control both front and rear ensures exceptionally smooth running and safe stability control. In addition, the torque responsive LSD (Limited Slip Differential) improves cornering ability by eliminating power loss during manoeuvring. The Mazda 6 MPS concept car is also equipped with a six-speed manual transmission that makes it responsive to plenty of torque. Appropriately for a high-performance car, the shift distances have been shortened to allow fast and accurate gear changes.
The interior has been designed with specific attention to material quality, having 'genuineness' as its theme. Based on black, the speedometer combines deep blue and a metallic texture to express 'functional beauty'. Aluminium is used for the interior switches to create authenticity, while the high quality leather seats in a fashionable black and white colour combination give it an elegant flair.
