The Mazda6 Saloon and Tourer range has been revised for 2018. The 2018 Mazda6 goes on sale in Ireland priced from €31,945.

The new Mazda6 has been refined inside and out and offers a suite of new technology and safety features.

According to Mazda, the cabin of the 2018 Mazda6 is now more refined, quiet and comfortable than ever, but has also been updated with the very latest in multimedia connectivity on an 8-inch centre screen.

To improve refinement the new Mazda6 has thicker body panels, natural sound smoother technology and noise absorbing materials.

Engines have been improved to maximise efficiency and power. The new Mazda6 will offer a choice of two SKYACTIV-G 2.0 litre petrol engines available in either 145PS or 165PS. A new SKYACTIV-D 2.2-litre diesel engine with 184PS will accompany the 2.2-litre diesel with 150PS option.

Both petrol and diesel engines are available in either manual or automatic transmissions.

The range of i-ACTIVSENSE safety systems has also been broadened with features such as Mazda Radar Cruise Control, Projected Active Driving Display with integrated Satellite Navigation, Adaptive LED Headlights and Blind Spot Monitoring all as standard. Intelligent Speed Assistance and 360° parking view monitor are available on higher spec grades.

John Perry, Managing Director of Mazda Ireland commented; “The outgoing Mazda6 has been such a successful car it has continuously received praise as one of the leading cars in its segment, aesthetically and as a driving experience. Refinements to the new Mazda6 raise its profile as a segment leader and a true alternative to premium rivals. Not only has the design, engine line up and technology been upgraded, driving dynamics have also been improved to further strengthen the engaging driving experience provided by Mazda’s unique, Jinba Ittai, car-and-driver-as-one philosophy. The new Mazda6 should be a genuine consideration for any driver looking for a premium yet fun to drive offering, even in the era of SUV and crossover dominance.”
