The 2014 Mazda6 just "debuted" in Russia at the Moscow Auto Show. Everyone's already seen the car so the "debut" is sort of like a born-again virgin having sex again… for the first time! Still, we'd hit that.
The current generation is a bit plain compared to the original and much beloved Mazda6. This new iteration appears to return the car to its mission of having the most fun in a boring segment.
Because it debuted in Moscow of all places, the details are Russia-specific. They get the SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter available over here in both the Mazda3 and CX-5, and it's reasonable to assume we'll get the same car and its mix of the brand's stellar six-speed manual and decent six-speed automatic. Russians also get the 2.5-liter engine found in most of the Mazda line.
No mention of a V6, which just goes to show how forced-induction and direct-injection are making those engines increasingly obsolete.
Is this the car that'll finally get the Mazda diesel engine? We hope.
