It was a funny read until the end. Canadian 6s will not get the 2.0L Skyactiv engine, at least not initially. It'll get the 2.5L Skyactiv engine, Mazda probably heard the critics, but personally I'd wait for the 2.0L engine, I never cared about zooming off from a start, I love taking corners fast on a mountain road however.
But the 2.0L Skyactiv engine produces the same power as the old 2.3L engine that sat inside the first gen Mazda 6 and Ford Fusion. Why the hate? And the 6 barely weighs over 3,000 lb, lighter than pretty much every midsize sedan out there from what I know. In the US, the Mazda 6 with the 2.0 was slated to AVERAGE 40mpg, when most compacts were rated 40MPG but only on the highway.
