The turbocharged 2018 Mazda 6 will likely be one of the best-value sporty sedans you can buy new. On Tuesday, weā€™ll be spending some time with the 250 horsepower four-door and the people who built it. So what do you want to know?

The updated 6 doesnā€™t look radically different, but its new boosted 2.5-liter engine is supposed to give the car the legs it always deserved. That engine will be the modelā€™s premium option, rated at 250 HP and 310 lb-ft of torque on 93 octane gas. Interestingly, Mazda disclaims that the engine will only make 227 HP on 87 which is ā€œregularā€ in most states. No word yet on what it will make on Californiaā€™s 91 octane ā€œpremium.ā€

The new 6, or at least the top trim variant, is also supposed to be upmarket inside with fancier wood and leather than weā€™ve seen in the past.

For those who would rather have something simpler, a non-turbo 2.5-liter with 187 HP and 186 lb-ft (and an available manual transmission), will be available as well. The base car starts at very modest $21,950.

Mazdaā€™s official launch event for the 2018 Mazda 6 is Tuesday, at which weā€™ll be able to speak with engineers and planners who brought the car to life. Afterwards, weā€™ll have one to ourselves for over a week so we should be able to dig into it pretty darn deeply.
