Great Things Ahead!
You can't improve on perfection, but it looks like nobody's told that to Mazda! Although the Mazda6 will be leaving the U.S. market after its 2021 iteration, drivers can expect to see it make a glorious return further down the road. Next year will see it undergoing an evolution into a rear-drive, inline-six sports sedan. This change represents a serious increase in power, performance, and--of course--style.
Let's start with the obvious: equipping the upcoming Mazda6 with a rear-drive chassis translates into a vastly different driving experience. Drivers will be able to harness an incredible amount of acceleration that comes tethered to responsible, breezy handling. Of course, its body will undergo a slight design to optimize its aerodynamics and capture the raw power that's waiting under the hood.
Drivers can expect this model to drop with all three of Mazda's combustion engines: a traditional four-stroke gasoline one, along with turbodiesel and Skyactiv-X spark controlled compression ignition options. While no formal announcement has been made (yet!) about pure-electric options, they're sure to come!
Retiring a car as storied and successful as the Mazda6 from its current vehicle segment is always bittersweet, but there's a lot to be excited for on the horizon. In the meantime, if you want to see why the Mazda6 is such a celebrated vehicle, then swing by McDonald Mazda West today!
