It seems that Mazda has an ambitious plan for their upcoming 2022 Mazda 6 because they want to make it a ‘Beemer’. There have been several images on the net display some possible engines for the new Mazda 6, which includes the hybrid plug-in, novel four-cylinder, and also incline six engine. It may not be a rumor anymore, considering that the info comes from the company’s third quarter (financial) presentation.
The Upcoming Updates
According to the company, the upcoming inline six engine would be made ready after 2022. For Mazda 6, the offered engines would be diesel, gas, and Skyactiv X. Mazda has a plan to install it with all wheel drive and longitudinal layout. The presentation doesn’t mention anything about rear drive system. In short, the company plans on modernizing their ride – bringing more life and vibe to it.
Mazda even makes a plan that they are going to make a (full) luxury model without hefty price tags. With the plan that it goes on full Beemer, the new Mazda 6 would be completely Bavarian – making it a rear wheel driving system with inline six and also longitudinal engine platform.
Engine and Performance
The engine won’t be the new thing in 2022 Mazda 6 new plan. Aside from the refreshed design, new engine arrangements would be one of the main focuses. In engine department alone, the gas compression ignition Skyactiv-X technology will be combined with electric hybrid system with 48V of power. It is possible that the output would be 350 hp of power.
The engine adoption may be shared with Toyota – as Mazda and Toyota are tightening their bonds together. It is possible that Toyota may also adopt the Skyactiv-X six cylinder engine for their Lexus RC and IS.
If everything goes as planned (like the Vision Coupe concept from Mazda from their Tokyo 2017 Auto Show), the car would have short deck showpiece with long-hood design. The design alone projects rear-drive wheel system that includes the inclusion of seductive styles – with subtler forms and softened lines.
Considering the tight bond between Mazda and Toyota, there are possibilities that Mazda would imitate the look of Lexus and install the inline six engine into its two-door and also four door construction. It may be impossible to have others than the sports rear drive coupe, but starting off with a sport sedan and rear drive system would be a good idea too.
Price and Availability
Unlike other companies and their products, it is highly likely that the new Mazda would be coming even at the end of 2022. According to the company, buyers shouldn’t expect any of their products to come before 2022 as 2022 would be their earliest launch. But they assure everyone that the new launch would differentiate this sedan from other models, such as Toyota Camry and Honda Accord.
Unfortunately, there haven’t been any updates about the company’s newest rides – and that includes the price range. So, if you want to know more about the upcoming 2022 Mazda 6, you will have to wait for more updates and info.
