2014 Mazda Mazda6 Live Photos: 2012 Paris Auto Show

September 28, 2012
Mazda revealed the 2014 Mazda6 in Moscow back in August, but the Paris Auto Show is the first time we are seeing the new mid-size sedan with our own eyes. We must say, the new Kodo styling looks terrific on the next-generation Mazda6.

The new 2014 Mazda6 is the first model to be equipped with Mazda's new i-ELOOP brake energy regeneration system. Similar to a mild-hybrid system, energy is recovered while braking but instead of being stored in batteries, the system utilizes capacitors.

If you are looking for a V-6 engine to power your next mid-size sedan you'll have to look elsewhere. The 2014 Mazda6 will be powered exclusively by SkyActiv four-cylinder engines. The base engine is the same 2.0-liter SkyActiv four-cylinder that you'll find in the Mazda3 and CX-5. For those looking for more punch, there will be a 2.5-liter SkyActiv four-cylinder as an option. Mazda hasn't announced which of these engines will be available in the U.S. spec Mazda6. There is also a diesel engine rumored to be coming in the near future.

Mazda expects to produce 120,000 units globally, and we have no trouble believing they'll achieve that goal. There seems to be quite a bit of excitement surrounding the new Mazda6.
