The popular Mazda D-class sedan may change its generation soon. According to the Japanese portal Spyder7, the new Mazda6 will debut no later than the end of the first half of 2022.
The source confirms the rumors that with the change of generation, Mazda6 will indeed be transferred to a completely new rear-wheel drive architecture, providing for the use of both classic internal combustion engines and their electrified versions. A similar chassis will form the basis of the new generation Mazda CX-5, which will premiere in late 2022 – early 2023.
According to preliminary data, the engine lineup of the new Mazda6 will include in-line 6-cylinder engines, including a 3-liter “diesel”, which is part of the mild hybrid power plant (it will be paired with a 48-volt electric makeweight).
Later, the sedan may have a full-fledged hybrid version with the ability to recharge batteries from an external power source, as well as a version with an all-electric engine.
What the car will look like is still unknown, but most likely, its design will use the developments that debuted in the Vision Coupe concept at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show. The saloon featured a long bonnet, an oddly shaped grille, and an H-shaped rear diffuser.
