2014 Mazda6 production begins! Mazda6 Wagon shows up!

Article by Christian A., on August 6, 2012

The next-generation Mazda6 mid-sized sedan has started production in Japan. From official photos of the launch, we see that the production version has retained the sleek, sculpted lines of the Takeri concept seen at the Tokyo auto show last year. This year, the new Mazda6 will start selling in Europe and Japan. It will start to arrive in U.S. dealerships in early 2013.

The car is expected to make its debut on August 29 at the Moscow auto show. Mazda hopes to produce 120,000 Mazda6 units annually at its Hofu plant in southwestern Japan. Building the mid-sized sedan abroad is being frowned on by the AutoAlliance International Inc., an assembly plant in Flat Rock, Michigan, owned jointly with Ford since 1985.

Mazda is consolidating production of its third-generation successor in Japan. At the Aug. 2 ceremony, Mazda rolled out the first vehicle from the Hofu line. This is a red Mazda6 wagon produced to European specifications and powered by Mazda's new Skyactiv 2.0-liter gasoline engine. There’s a profile photo of this car being draped in silver and gold garland.

We can see the bulging front and rear fenders of the concept as well as the narrow greenhouse that provides a sporty appearance.

The next-generation Mazda6 is the second model to take on Mazda’s new design language, dubbed kodo, which is Japanese for "soul of motion." Elements like the grille, the car's cab-rearward proportions and muscular fenders were introduced on the Mazda CX-5 crossover that started selling in April.
