2018 Mazda 6 - First photos/renders

Next Generation All-New 2017 Mazda 6 To Feature HCCI Tech | Carlist.my - Malaysia's No.1 Car Site

These renders are starting to circulate in Asia. If this is accurate, it looks like they're moving stylistically in the direction of Acura. Personally, I'm not a fan, and think the current generation car looks better. I hope we have at least one more model year with the current design.

The article makes it sound like the next version won't see a huge improvement in engine technology or power output. It's more evolutionary than revolutionary, which is disappointing.

The biggest question in my mind is whether the next 6 is going to be positioned as the 2017 Mazda 6 (which would explain why no 2017 model has been announced in the nearly 17 months since the 2016 refresh came out), or whether it's going to be presented as a 2018 model (which lines up better with the 5 year model cycle the author mentions in the article).

The former would suggest the 2017 model could be announced any time between July 2016 and early Spring 2017. The latter suggests it won't be out until the second half of 2017.
UNLTD1487 and ZackDickey like this.
