Mazda 6 (3rd gen) 2012-

That's a superbly good looking 4 door family saloon.

And it has a distinct Japanese styling. It's not trying to look European. And that's a good point. I like it.

Don't like it at all but it fits squarely into the boring sedan class.

Much better than the current 6 version the US gets. Any info on dimensions?

There isn't a Mazdaspeed of the current 6 and I doubt there will be of this one although there's suppose to be a diesel version.

The previous Mazdaspeed 6 did not sell well.

Wish it was a bit more like the concepts.

It looks plain next to those two. But I suppose that's to be expected, it does a pretty good job of looking like them.

Supposedly there is some partial regen through super cap to power the electrical system to take load off the alternator....

I wonder if this car will be quick, so far all the comments for these Skyativ Mazda is that the engine is nice, good mileage, but slow....

I don't think they are that slow, just not turbocharged and performance isn't as lazy as on those engines.

It has a kerb weight of just 1340 kg, that's not bad

Not bad indeed, especially for a car of this size.

It also retains normally aspirated engines.

And looks this good.

Seems like it may be a great car.
