Updated styling and interior for Mazda's 6, which will go on sale in the UK early next year with prices starting from £19,795

Mazda has revealed that its facelifted 6 will cost from £19,795 when it goes on sale in the UK early next year.

The model made its debut at the recent LA motor show, where Mazda also showed its new CX-3 crossover and the facelifted Mazda CX-5.

Like the updated CX-5 SUV, the main exterior changes to the 6 revolve around its front grille, which takes on a more fluidic shape. New LED headlight designs also feature at the rear alongside a new shark fin radio antenna, while the colour range has also expanded.

Inside is where the 6's updates are most evident. Adopting a more luxurious look, Mazda has redesigned the instrument panel and lower console. New features include an electronic parking brake, a free-standing seven-inch infotainment screen running the firm's MZD connect service, and a rear seat heater.

The 6's engine range, which includes 2.0 and 2.5-litre SkyAtiv-G direct-injection petrol engines as well as a 2.2-litre SkyActiv-D diesel, has been carried over, but the diesel is now available with Mazda's latest all-wheel drive system.

Additions to Mazda's suite of safety technologies include adaptive LED headlights, plus lane keeping and driver attention assistance systems. 

Set to go on sale in both saloon and estate forms, prices for the range start at £19,795 for the 2.0-litre SE SkyActiv-G saloon, and rise to £28,795 for the top-spec 2.2-litre Sport Nav Auto estate.

I can't agree with the

I can't agree with the comments below about how beautiful this car is. Mazda's age really badly and the 6 already looks dated. Add that to the interiors which are pretty cheap and nasty and Mazdas are less than the sum of their parts. Shame because they drive fantastically well.

So much better than the Germans. This is how you do curves - flowing and elegant, not the contrived Mercedes way.

Agreed. Plus I find the 6 so much more sophisticated and desirable looking that either an A4, 3 Series, Passat or C Class while the quality and reliability of the Mazda beats all of them hands down. That the 6 also drives very well and has fabulous engines is just an added bonus. The A4, 3 Series, Passat or C Class are nothing more than overpriced, unreliable and cheap feeling tat.

Quite nice

However, Mazda really should develop a small V6 for the American market. No matter how much power they can develop from the four it will always be considered a downmarket option compared to the Accord and Camry which have Hybrid and six bangers available, even if a lot of those get sold with fours.
