2014 Mazda 6 Diesel USA Release Date Release
2014 Mazda 6 Diesel USA Review
Previously in 2012, Mazda, subsequent inside the footsteps of many some other automakers which were close to introduce a diesel towards the U. S. market, entered 2 Mazda6 diesel sedans inside the grueling Rolex 24 (additionally referred to as 24 Hours of Daytona) race.
Mazda can start selling the actual oilburner in the direction of finished of 2013 like a 2014 design so we made a decision to turn out to be a little more acquainted with the actual line by traveling the actual gasoline-powered variant.
The actual 2014 Mazda Mazda6 itself is really a headturner. I can’t think about a car along with an MSRP which starts in roughly $21, 000 which generated as much feedback – all favorable– like the Mazda6. Based mostly on the actual automaker’s Takeri concept car, the actual Mazda6 continues the actual Kodo Soul of Motion design language which first appeared on the actual Shinari concept. The front fascia, maybe drop overwhelming, provides the actual car substantial presence and also the handsome roofline and sweeping character lines provides it an elegance not common from the pricepoint or market segment.
2014 Mazda 6 Diesel USA Powertrain
The new 2014 Mazda6 goes without a V-6 engine, but there is an alternative that provides the relaxed muscle of a V-6′s low-rev torque. An alternative that makes vastly better fuel economy. It’s the 2014 Mazda 6 Diesel, which the company said definitely will come to the U.S. this year.
It seems crazy to compare the refinement of a V-6 with the reputedly rough and vibratory nature of a four-cylinder diesel, but bear with us. For one, diesels are getting more refined — and this is a good one. More than that, its ample torque reserve means you seldom have to wring it out just to gather a few mph. With 310 lb-ft at 2000 rpm, it’ll get the job done without breaking a sweat.
In Europe, we’ve been driving one equipped with Mazda’s own six-speed automatic transmission. Compared with the 2.5-liter, I-4 gas engine version, it not only has that extra torquey shove in the mid-ranges, but it’s only half a second slower to 60 mph, Mazda says. Yet, in the European fuel cycle, it goes an extra third on a gallon.
2014 Mazda 6 Diesel USA Exterior and Interior
As for the rest of the car, it’s like we’ve said before: a rigid body, agile handling, good grip, resistance to understeer, nice styling, decent interior, and strong ergonomics. Certainly, a more interesting sedan then most of the mainstream options.
Features and Safety
This latter feature is part of the 6’s “i-ActiveSense” safety package, and applies the brakes automatically if the driver in front of you does something stupid. We experienced it first hand during our drive around Austin, and it works.
