MazdaUSA's website does not confirm the touring will be offered with MTX - This doesn't mean that it WON'T be offered eventually, but I'd be willing to think this will be the case.
The previous models did the same thing, where only the base model was given the MTX option. This isn't a choice I'm a fan of, or many others, but it's supply and demand for the company to make money, and the world just isn't buying MTX as often any more.
That is incorrect. The Sport might show up then, but not a Touring MT.
This is what Mazda emailed me recently.
Thank you for contacting Mazda,
Mazda’s decision to include a manual transmission for the Touring edition of the 2014 Mazda6 was fairly recent. As a result, this trim level will see a delay of approximately 3-4 weeks before they arrive at dealers. We anticipate having this version of the 2014 Mazda6 in stock at all authorized Mazda dealers by mid to late February. Pricing for this trim level should be available during the first week of February.
We do appreciate the time that you took to contact Mazda and for allowing us the opportunity to respond to your inquiry. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to give us a call at the number below and reference file #XXXXXXX

Mazda confirmed the Touring getting the MT and this Mazda rep is saying February. I will wait until the first week of February where hopefully the pricing gets updated. So I don't see how I'm incorrect.
