The very first Mazda6 Estate of the new generation has recently rolled off the assembly line at the company’s Hofu plant.
The new generation of the Mazda6 Estate is once again being placed into the spotlights, this time with the Japanese based automaker announcing that the very first model has just rolled off the assembly line at the company’s Hofu plant. According to the car manufacturer, the model has been revealed during a ceremony for the production start of the vehicle at the Hofu facility, which was celebrated by the president and CEO Takashi Yamanouchi, by a representative of the Mazda Workers Union and by executives and employees.
Even if the new generation of the Mazda6 Estate has just rolled off the assembly line in Japan, details on the model remain limited for the moment. Mazda says that the new generation of the Mazda6 will share the same engine lineup with the regular version of the model, the sedan, and this will include the new 2.2 liter four-cylinder turbo diesel with 148 BHP, along with the 2.0 liter Skyactiv engine in two outputs, 164 BHP and 184 BHP. More details on the new generation of the Mazda6 Estate will be announced at the 2012 Paris Motor Show in September, where the model will be officially presented to the public.
