The all-new Mazda 6 has stayed true to last year’s acclaimed Takeri concept, as these first official pictures of the production car reveal.
Mazda has been selective in not showing the new 6 from all angles ahead of its Moscow motor show launch later this month, but the images reveal the Takeri’s basic design themes have carried over for production.
These include a front-end inspired by the CX-5, including a large grille, a curvaceous, stepped bonnet and sleek headlights. Mazda calls its latest design theme ‘Kodo, Soul of Motion’.
The car has not yet been revealed in profile, but the rear shot shows that the Takeri’s sloping roofline also carries over to the 6 saloon. Indeed, Mazda believes the saloon looks sleek enough not to have to offer a five-door hatchback version of the new 6.
The new 6 follows the CX-5 crossover in ushering in Mazda’s new SkyActiv technology. It is based on a lightweight new modular chassis that can underpin anything from a Mazda 3 family hatchback to a Mazda CX-9 full-size SUV in size.
