The upcoming 2014 Mazda6 will make its global debut at the next month’s Moscow International Automobile Salon, the Japanese automaker said on Wednesday.
The model follows the CX5 and Mazda5 in offering the new Kodo “soul of motion” design language, which made its debut at the2010 Paris Auto Show and later the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show.
Under the hood, the 2014 Mazda 6 will likely employ its 2.0-liter Skyactiv inline four-cylinder engine mated to six-speed transmissions.
The vehicle will also feature “i-ELOOP,” the world’s first capacitor-based regenerative braking system. In real-world driving conditions, Mazda claims i-ELOOP will improve fuel economy by up to 10 percent.
We’ll have to wait until the Moscow Motor Show in August to see the car in the flesh and wait even longer to buy one as it will not go on sale in the U.S. until next Spring.
The complete lineup of 2014 Mazda6 vehicles will make their global debut in late September at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.
