2010 Mazda6 facelift revealed

2010 Mazda6 facelift revealed

Mazda has just announced that its facelifted version of the 2010 Mazda Atenza would go on sale immediately in Japan. The car will be officially introduced internationally at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show as the 2010 Mazda6.

The mid-size car comes in body shapes, a four-door sedan, five-door liftback, or five-door wagon.  Its “grinning” front end, including a new front bumper, brings the Mazda6 inline with the Mazda3 but the grinning front styling isn’t crazy happy like the 3, more mildly chuffed. More significant changes are at the back, where the car now sports a completely remodeled bumper, light clusters, and tailpipes. Inside, the car now has a single color interior instead of the contrasting tones in the 2009 model, giving the interior a more serious look.

Powerplant options include a new, more efficient petrol 2.0-liter DISI1 unit replacing the current 2.0 engine. Mazda’s MZR 1.8- and 2.5-liter petrol engines have also seen some tweaking.  The MZR-CD 2.2-liter turbo diesel, on offer ranging from 127 to 178 horsepower, has modifications to make it more efficient and clean.

Some new features include adaptive lighting, hill assist, and an adjusted chassis. The Mazda6 will get its international premiere at the Geneva Motor Show in March, and will go on sale in international markets soon after.
