Just hours ago, a high-resolution teaser shot of the 2014 Mazda6 leaked onto the internet, giving us a very clear glimpse of the new sedan’s front fascia. Not to be outdone, Mazda has responded by releasing three more high-res images of the new car, which we’ve learned will officially debut at the 2012 Moscow Auto Show next month.
After looking at the new quartet of images, along with the series of teaser videos – all one, two, three, four of them – there’s little to be left to the imagination when it comes to the design of Mazda’s rakish new sedan. From what we can see so far, this thing looks mighty handsome. The company’s new Kodo design language is certainly flaunting its stuff here, with a more aggressive front fascia and upswept profile line that, like the CX-5, gives the car the impression of being “up on its haunches,” as one Mazda representative described it to us once.
Right now, all we know is that Mazda plans to debut its new midsize sedan with a 2.0-liter Skyactiv-G gasoline four-cylinder, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The Japanese automaker has also stated that the 2014 Mazda6 will feature the company’s new i-ELOOP (short for Intelligent Energy Loop) capacitor-based regenerative braking system that will, according to Mazda, “improve economy by up to 10 percent.”
Following the Russian-spec car’s debut on August 29, the rest of the world will have to wait until the Paris Motor Show in late September to see exactly what’s in store for each individual market. Scroll down for Mazda’s official press blast.
