The new Mazda6 Saloon and Tourer go on sale on the 25th January 2013 priced from £19,595 rising to £28,045.

The entry-level petrol Mazda6 starts £19,595 for the 2.0-litre 145ps Saloon SE, rising to £24,865 for the 2.0-litre 165ps Tourer Sport Nav. The diesel models start at £21,795 for the 2.2-litre 150ps Saloon SE through to £28,045 for the 2.2-litre 175ps Tourer Sport Nav Auto.

There is the option of SKYACTIV 2.0-litre petrol and 2.2-litre diesel engines with the choice of six-speed manual and automatic SKYACTIV transmissions. The powertrains includes two petrol engines and two diesels mated to six-speed automatic or manual transmissions. SKYACTIV-G petrol engines include the 2.0-litre 145ps and the 2.0-litre 165ps both producing 210Nm at 4,000rpm. SKYACTIV-D diesel engines include the 2.2-litre 150ps producing 380Nm at 1,800rpm to 2,600rpm and the 2.2-litre 175ps producing 420Nm at 2,000rpm.

The diesel 2.2-litre 150ps officially is capable of 67.3 mpg on the combined cycle with CO2 emissions of 108 g/km. Yet will achieve 0-62 mph in 9.0 seconds and has a top speed of 131 mph. Which compares to the petrol 2.0-litre 145ps which records 61.4 mpg on the combined fuel cycle with CO2 emissions of 129 g/km.

The majority of the new Mazda6 range features the i-ELOOP brake energy regeneration system. It claims to boost economy by up to 10 per cent, depending on driving conditions. There is also the 'i-stop' idle-stop system and SKYACTIV powertrains, chassis and body control, which promise to make the Mazda6 more engaging and rewarding to drive.

All-new Mazda6 SE-L and Sport models feature Smart City Brake Support (SCSB) which helped to score a significant drop in their insurance group rating - up to five groups lower for diesel-powered models and six groups lower for petrol-powered versions than the previous model.
