New Mazda6 to premiere at Moscow Motor Show


Mazda 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 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
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

The automaker says the Mazda6 draws on the “best of Mazda’s technical expertise and
craftsmanship across all domains.”

It stands as the flagship model for a new generation of Mazda products. 

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.

The show begins August 29 and runs through to September 9, 2012.
