Here are the first images of the redesigned 2014 Mazda6 sedan. It will debut at the Moscow International Motor Show next month for that market; all other markets, including the U.S., will see their versions at the 2012 Paris Motor Show in September.
The U.S. on-sale date hasn't been announced, but the 2014-model-year designation means it couldn’t go on sale here until Jan. 1, 2013. We expect its actual on-sale date will be even later than that. It will be powered by the efficient 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that’s found in the Mazda CX-5 and Mazda3 .
Right about the time the shrouds are ripped off the Mazda showcars in Paris, the new
will debut in the U.S. and go on sale shortly thereafter. The
, which has a starting price of $22,495, including a $795 destination charge, has garnered praise for its sharp-looking redesign; it will go on sale about the same time as the Accord.
With all this new sedan-shaped sheetmetal to choose from, will Mazda miss out on a slew of a shoppers before its 6 hits the U.S.?
