2018 Mazda6 facelift gets 2.5L turbo mill and new interior

Mazda has announced it will unveil the facelifted 2018 Mazda6 sedan at the Los Angeles Auto Show which opens from Dec 1-10.

This will be the Mazda6’s 2nd facelift that besides incorporating a nip-tuck here and there for a more premium look also brings new technology and more efficient powertrains.

The existing SKYACTIV-G 2.5-litre petrol will adopt a cylinder deactivation system that promises better fuel efficiency and performance, while the SKYACTIVE-G 2.5-litre turbocharged direct injected petrol that debuted in the CX-9 has been added to the engine lineup.

On the technology side, Mazda’s i-ACTIVSENSE safety system will now incorporate a radar cruise control that automatically bring the car to a standing stop and take off again, and a 360-degree camera.

From the teaser images, the exterior receives the usual tweaks to the front bumper and grille, while the interior gets the bulk of the change, with a thoroughly updated dashboard for a more premium feel.

More details to come from the LA Auto Show.
