With the indifference to wagons and hot and cold attitude on hatches, I think Mazda could have a major player in the CX4//6/7. Almost an SUV, but not quite, not so tall as to kill handling, stylish and somewhat unique looking. There really won't be anything similar. So if the styling works and Mazda hasn't really missed there since the smiley face; this could be a major asset to their lineup.

This is exactly the trigger circumstance around my ordering a 6T, and trading in my (non-diesel) VW CC. VW lost all future capex and opex revenue from me, regardless of gasoline flavor, because of ethics.

Found this article this morning with quotes from actual Mazda employee's not just "inside sources" like what was found a couple years back when they first mentioned the new Speed3.

It's from motoring.com.au which I know has to be taken with a grain of salt. But like I said I made this thread for speculation.

Mazda rotary to go turbo - motoring.com.au

Read about how the "Senior Power Train Engineer" mentions more models receiving AWD etc. to surprise consumers.

I agree. The difference is Mazda would market the Koeru concept as an SUV. The Accord Crosstour, the M6GT and the Venza were never really SUVs to begin with, just wagons that were made to look like SUVs. I think people saw through all that . The Koeru has a very good chance to be the next success story for Mazda.

Found this again from Motoring.com

I know trim options vary per market but to think the minor updating to the 6 for 17' may only be safety features more standard across the full line of Sport, Touring, & Grand Touring.

Also, will we be seeing Reverse SCBS here in the states? Not to be confused with RCTA which is just a warning indicator. Is it a possibility that we may see a 2016.5 M6 as well? I just wish they would add heated seats standard in Touring models.

Mazda6 safety and value enhanced - motoring.com.au


"Mazda has taken the Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), Rear-view mirror with auto dimming function and Smart City Brake Support – Forward (SCBS-F) from the options column and made those features standard across the Mazda6 range. Touring and GT variants also score Smart City Brake Support – Reverse (SCBS-R) as standard."



Side not: BSM, RCTA, and SCBS, are not available in any rendition of the Sport model in 16'. BSM & RCTA have been standard on Touring models since 15' though.

Looks like we'll be waiting awhile for a power train refresh after all.

What still gives me hope for the 17 model update is that these may only be applied to M6's in Australia.

It sounds like the motivation was to simplify production, so the factory does not have to deal with the "without" versions. So probably the US versions will have the same standard safety features as Oz. Hard to say about Reverse SCBS or other options.

Hot hatches have been around for nearly 30 years now. Low fuel prices may have slowed sales a tiny bit, but i strongly doubt the market research folks would have green lighted BOTH the focus RS and the return of the civic hatch to the US market if medium-term prospects were poor.

The market for hot hatches will probably always exist, but it's also true that the market is rather saturated with choices right now. So a turbo 6 makes more sense than a turbo 3.
