Mazda 6 Estate will arrive in Britain with the saloon in early 2013
Premium for the Estate will see prices start at around £22k
Mazda 6 Estate will be powered by a 2.2-litre diesel or 2.0-litre petrol engine
Mazda's i-ELOOP brake energy recuperation system will be fitted to both variants
SkyActiv technologies could reduce emissions to as little as 105g/km
The estate's looks are down to the Kodo design language
Both the petrol and diesel engine are Euro-6 compliant
At launch, the Mazda 6 estate will be available with a 2.2-litre SkyActive-D diesel engine, developing 148g/km. The engine, which will also be installed in the saloon, could deliver emissions as low as 105g/km. The design remains close to the Takeri concept, a fact that Mazda CEO Takeo Yamanouchi says is very deliberate because the company "knows that styling is a number one priority to Mazda customers, with efficiency and safety as the other important elements."
A SkyActiv-G 2.0-litre petrol engine, which promises torque levels in excess of what’s usually expected of a naturally aspirated unit, will feature in the line-up. Both engines are Euro 6 compliant.
Like the Mazda 6 saloon, the estate has been influenced by the brand’s Kodo design language and employ’s the full range of SkyActiv technologies including i-ELOOP regenerative braking system, in an effort to drive up efficiency.
