Hiroshima, Japan — Mazda Motor Corporation will hold the world premiere of the all-new Mazda6 sedan (known as Mazda Atenza in Japan), totally redesigned for the first time in five years, at the 2012 Moscow Motor Show. The Moscow Motor Show begins August 29 and runs through to September 9, 2012.
The new Mazda6 is the second of Mazda’s new generation of products, which incorporate both the full range of SkyActiv technologies and the new Kodo ‘Soul of Motion’ design language. It will also be the first model equipped with Mazda’s brake energy regeneration system, i ELOOP. The introduction of i-ELOOP marks stage two of Mazda’s Building Block Strategy for environmental technology development. The strategy calls for thorough improvements in base automotive technologies before the step-by-step introduction of electric devices to improve fuel economy and reduce carbon emissions.
The new Mazda6 draws on Mazda’s technical expertise and craftsmanship across all domains, from dynamic performance and design, through to environmental performance and safety. It will be the flagship model for a new generation of Mazda products. It features a sense of dignity, style, luxury feel and comfort expected from a vehicle in the mid-size segment while offering the pleasure of responsive and agile driving, which is at the core of the Mazda brand.
The model to be exhibited at the Moscow Motor Show is a Russian specification sedan equipped with a direct-injection SkyActiv-G 2.0 gasoline engine and six-speed SkyActiv-Drive automatic transmission.
