Following on from the 2013 Mazda6 video teaser trio released last week, yet another video and a leaked static image have surfaced – giving us the best look yet at the new third-generation sedan.
The still image clearly shows the new mid-sized car’s links to the Mazda Takeri concept, seen at the 2011 Tokyo motor show, with the Kodo design language heavily influencing the styling. Bold lines and an aggressive front bumper give the new Mazda6 a more purposeful look from the front.
The video highlights the car’s profile with a slow pan down the side of the vehicle, tying together the previous moving teasers that showed the front end, side mirror and rear end.
The sedan will make its world premiere at the Paris motor show in September, potentially following the unveiling of the recently spied Mazda6 wagon, which will reportedly debut at next month’s 2012 Moscow motor show.
The new Mazda6 will become the Japanese manufacturer’s second model designed from the ground up using SkyActiv technologies and will feature fuel efficient petrol and diesel engines, a newly developed six-speed automatic transmission, engine stop-start, and Mazda’s ‘i-ELOOP’ regenerative braking technology.
The range will be sans a hatch variant, however, with the liftback body style having been dropped from the third-generation Mazda6’s line-up.
