For the 2011 model year, is more fuel efficient and a new headlight and fog light design, as as a new 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheel Touring Plus and Grand models receive new side mirrors with turn lamps.

The new 2011 MAZDA6’s is based on the sporty design of the model, but these updates a clearer premium identity and refined character. Inside, a new wheel design and premium accents on the center instrument greet the driver upon Two new exterior colors are added for the model year – Ingot and Techno White Pearl.

A new Multi-Information Display for audio and controls and a rearview camera are now on Grand Touring models. A camera is also added to the Navigation System on Grand models which features an 7-inch touch screen with real-time traffic Bluetooth hands-free phone and are added as standard equipment to the model.

Program Engineer Kajiyama established ambitious and high standards in the development of the To be widely recognized as the best available in the mid-size market, the underlying concept rests on three fundamental pillars:

• A appearance integrated with a dynamic character

• A unique

• An insightful package


Chief Designer Sato summed up the opportunity by a new sport sedan with reach as “Time to be Japanese.” design is defined by three key

• Evolve the Zoom-Zoom spirit to the level.

• Infuse the new MAZDA6 a dignified sports appearance.

• that the design reflects culture, aesthetics, and spirit.

The exterior design of the MAZDA6 a front fender reminiscent of the one on today’s RX-8. Sculpture flows from the front through the headlamp, over the top of the opening, and into the side ahead of the front door two aims: it accents the importance of to the MAZDA6’s athletic character and it trims the length of the front

The harmony of sharp edges richly curved surfaces to the MAZDA6’s visual appeal. wheel arches, attached wings to an airplane’s fuselage, an athletic stance and instill a character. Large areas of doors are perfectly smooth and to exhibit blank-space beauty. attention to detail is clearly in the taillights’ intricate LED components.

All nestle jewel-like within surrounding surfaces.


While a few Mazda interior design such as round instruments and a steering wheel accompanied by a instrument panel, were a from the start of this project, new priorities called for an fresh approach. The quality of had to be the highest Mazda had ever in any US production. Surface textures, levels, parting lines, and areas all received careful

The interior needed an expansive without losing its focus on fun for the combined with comfort and for all passengers. To achieve that, a theme was adopted: a roomy zone with solid and upper areas.

Blacked-out faces with brighter markings, needles, and trim the MAZDA6 interior an exquisitely look. Seats are highly with soft-look volumes with comfortable cushions and effective side bolsters. curved surfaces blend the into the instrument panel.

shapes combined with control panel areas the desired contrast between and celestial beauty. Crisp abut gently curved surfaces. Unique patterns and give the MAZDA6’s interior a original appearance.

Use of black provides a rich, sporty that’s unprecedented in the mid-size High-mounted audio system and controls enhance functionality. A new wheel design is added for along with new premium accents on the instrument panel.

The entry-level interior benefits brightly plated metal and a choice of black or beige upholstery with a contemporary pattern. Available Touring-level adds a leather steering cover. The Grand Touring uses leather only for material in a choice of black or tones.


Mazda’s for providing world-class powertrains – engines and transmissions – is deeply Quick throttle response, acceleration, and outstanding flexibility are to Mazda’s spirit. Guaranteeing MAZDA6 customers enjoy the performance they expect, two choices are offered on the sedan.

engine choices receive fuel economy for 2011.


A 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine is delivering 170 horsepower at 6,000 Its peak torque of 167 lb-ft at rpm tops nearly all competitors’ EPA fuel economy is 22 city/31 hwy on and 21 city/30 hwy on manual transmission.

features include chain-driven overhead camshafts, four per cylinder, counter-rotating balance located in the oil pan, and aluminum and head construction to save The crankshaft is forged steel for durability. Forged connecting minimize reciprocating weight.

intake valve timing a smooth idle, low emissions, and high-rpm power. An injection-molded, intake manifold provides internal passages with weight. Fuel is delivered to the ports by an electronically controlled injection system. Ignition are modular units positioned above the spark plugs.

bucket tappets require no Light-weight pistons are coated a special anti-friction compound and with low-tension rings for gas mileage.

Several features especially for maximum power in the i application include a cylinder with improved intake and flow, a low-restriction exhaust and a two-mode intake manifold a center entry and an electronically-controlled body.

To minimize noise and the damper at the forward end of the crankshaft is with two tuned masses. At the end, a flexible flywheel diminishes NVH. The deep-skirt is engineered for extra stiffness and caps are integral with a ladder-type reinforcement.


The 60-degree 3.7-liter V6 designated MZI, will to be utilized on the 2011 MAZDA6.

a stirring 272 horsepower available at rpm and 269 lb-ft of torque at 4,250 the MZI V6 is the most powerful engine in its As power is nothing without Mazda engineering tests that it’s also than its competitors at full EPA fuel economy is 18 city/27 hwy its standard-equipment automatic transmission.

The of advanced features includes and stiff aluminum construction for the and cylinder heads, a forged-steel with induction-hardened journals, and intake-valve timing. Dual-overhead are chain-driven and equipped with direct-acting bucket tappets.

To achieve best-in-class smoothness and the MAZDA6 s’s 3.7-liter V6’s has a full complement of counter-weights and a damper. The aluminum cylinder-head are rubber isolated to minimize the of radiated valvetrain noise.


To maximize and driver involvement, the MAZDA6 is equipped with a close-ratio manual transmission capable of all the performance provided by the 2.5-liter MZR MAZDA6 Sport customers who an automatic transmission with a shift mode can opt for an electronically-controlled automatic with overdrive for the top two gears.

A six-speed automatic manual shift mode is in the MAZDA6 s.

One Zoom-Zoom feature directly from the Mazda sports car is called Active Shift (AAS) control. AAS winding road conditions and a gear ratio (usually with optimum acceleration exiting a corner. Decelerating a bend, AAS quickens down-shift to provide maximum engine

During passing maneuvers a merge into traffic, AAS lower gears longer to acceleration.

Providing customers with a that’s utterly dependable, designed and manufactured, and pleasing to a spectrum of customers is every dream. Achieving these goals requires a deep and the willingness to sweat innumerable Elevating the MAZDA6’s quality so it becomes the mid-size segment’s star was a monumental undertaking.

To the highest level of quality, a of MAZDA6s were driven for than one million miles in 2008, prior to the launch of the model. Today at AutoAlliance (AAI), a sample of cars are on a track to test the steering for drift, and pull with a meter. In addition, every MAZDA6 is run on a chassis dynamometer to shift quality, electrical and other functions.

When the car was in 2009, major revisions made to the front suspension and valve in the power steering to help improve straight-ahead over a wide variety of surfaces. To verify that and road noise are lower a specific limit, an Aachen audio recorder is belted the vehicles for inspections. While inspection procedures primarily visual checks, today are more hands-on and dynamic for the MAZDA6 than ever

Painting each car is a 34-step that begins with primers and continues with base and color coats, coats, and a trip through a bake oven.

To minimize noise while improving economy, ambitious aerodynamic were set early in the MAZDA6’s process. A large panel the powertrain, plus air deflectors the front tires, and two covers in the floor area, smooth air flow. Computational fluid (CFD) analysis helped noise-causing turbulence observed in the rear-view mirror mounting

Wind-tunnel tests reported a low coefficient of 0.27, a 10-percent over the original MAZDA6, and a better than a Porsche Very low lift at high and in cross winds improves directional stability and driver


Tremendous strides been made in avoiding with contemporary safety such as ABS and DSC. To safeguard when a collision cannot be the MAZDA6 has been engineered energy absorbing and intrusion zones in its body structure.

A stopper device keeps the pedal from moving and into the driver’s survival in the event the engine and transmission are during an accident. The fuel is mounted ahead of the rear and surrounded by high-strength-steel side and two crossmembers capable of resisting and leakage in the event of a high-speed or rear impact.

A special structure consisting of roof door pillars, sill and floor crossmembers does an job of resisting side-impact intrusion. doors have dual beams and energy-absorbing material into their trim

All MAZDA6s are equipped with six air The side-curtain bags cover all the and rear door glass to the chance of injury. Standard bags built into the seats are optimized for both and hip protection.

Front seat are engineered to automatically take up when the air bags are triggered and to pay out to lessen chest loads as the moves forward.

To guard under-riding high-mounted SUV bumpers, the front bumper beam’s has been increased by 0.79 In order to minimize fender-bender costs, the scope of damage by a low-velocity collision has been reduced in the MAZDA6. Additionally, substantial latches and a more rear seatback structure do a job of resisting cabin intrusion from trunk cargo forward during a frontal
