Mechanicals are shared with Ford’s new Mondeo sedan and a new 3.5L V6 will also be available in some markets. The new Mazda6 will also be slightly larger than the model it replaces, promising more room for rear seat passengers. A wider track should also see performance enhanced.
The new model will see a significant leap in quality levels as Mazda engineers are well aware of tough new competition. Also planned for the Frankfurt show will be Opel’s new Vectra sedan as well as the Ford Mondeo.
