The Japanese carmaker Mazda has officially unveiled the allnew Mazda6 at the 2012 Moscow Auto Show. The third generation of Mazda6 is heavilyinspired by the Tackeri Concept a prototype revealed in 2011. 

The Mazda6 follows the "KODO - Soul ofMotion" design language and it encompasses the full range of SKYACTIV technologies. "We have created a design in which the wild and dynamicexpressions of motion artistically realize a powerful presence. Simply lookingat the car heightens one’s expectations about the driving experience evenbefore actually riding in it", says chief designer Akira Tamatani.

The Mazda6 is 4,865 mm (191.6 inches) long, 1,840 mm (72.4inches) wide and 1,450 mm (57.1 inches) tall and rides on a 2,830 mm (111.4inches) wheelbase. In the cabin the Japanese sedan comes with higher qualitymaterials and a brand new center console.

In Russia the mid-sized sedan will use two powersources. Wetalk about the SKYACTIV-G 2.0 which produces 150 PS (110kW / 148 HP) and 210 Nm(155 lb-ft) of torque and the SKYACTIV-G 2.5 which develops 192 PS (141 kW /189 HP) and 256 Nm (189 lb-ft) of torque.

Both units will have Start/Stop technologyand the all new i-ELOOP regenerative braking system. This innovative systemuses a capacitor which is charged when the driver takes the foot off theaccelerator. The electricity stored is used to power other electric componentswhich mean that the car will use less fuel. 

The European version of the Mazda6 will be revealed at the2012 Paris Motor Show scheduled to take place at the end of September.
