Mazda comparing the Takeri Concept and the new Mazda6 image

The Japanese based automaker Mazda has recently released a couple of images where the Takeri Concept and the new Mazda6 generation are being compared.

After the new generation of the Mazda6 has been officially presented to the public at the 2012 Moscow Motor Show and the Takeri Concept has been revealed at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show, the two models are being placed into the spotlights once more, this time by the car manufacturer, which is comparing the two vehicles.

“If you view the two cars next to each other it is easy to see just how strongly one resembles the other. While some manufacturers tend to heavily camouflage their teaser show cars – creating a coupe concept when in reality the production version will be a five-door hatch – we took the decision with Takeri to base it as closely as possible to the final production car”, said Peter Birtwhistle, the Chief Design for Mazda Europe.

As a quick reminder, the new generation of the Mazda6 is coming with a choice of two petrol engines in Russia, the SkyActiv-G 2.0, generating 148 HP (150 PS / 110 kW) and 210 Nm of torque (155 lb-ft), and the larger SkyActiv-G 2.5 liter, which is producing a total output of 189 horsepower (192 PS / 141 kW) and 256 Nm of torque (189 lb-ft). The 2013 Mazda6 has been inspired by the Takeri Concept and the model has a Kodo design with LED infused headlights and a signature wing grille. Expect more on the 2013 Mazda6 at the Paris Motor Show this week.
