Diesel saloon models come in TS2 or SL trim at £18,420 and £21,320.Finally, the all-important estate arrives in March 2008 with a reduced premium of £700 over hatchback prices, from the current £1000. So the new Mazda 6 estate starts at £17,330 for the 2.0-litre TS and stops at £20,330 for the 2.5 Sport, with the diesel range beginning at £17,940 for the 2.0D TS and ending at £22,040 for the range-topping Sports Luxury diesel.
