The Mazda 6 or Mazda6 (known as the Mazda Atenza in Japan and China, derived from the Italian attenzione ) is a mid-size sedan produced by Mazda since 2002, replacing the long-produced Capella/626 in 2002. The car was popular among consumers, selling faster than all previous Mazda models.
The Mazda6 was marketed as the first example of the company's "Stylish, Insightful and Spirited" design philosophy,followed by the Mazda2 in December 2002, the RX-8 in August 2003, the Mazda3 in January 2004, the Mazda5 in the summer of 2005, the MX-5 in October 2005, and the CX-7 in November 2006. The 2003 Mazda6 is essentially the sixth-generation Mazda 626, as the Mazda6 continues on the G platform, progressing from the GF-platform 626/Capella to the GG-platform Mazda6.

The first-generation Mazda6 was launched in Japan as the Mazda Atenza in May 2002. The model lineup consisted of a four-door sedan, a four-door hatchback and a five-door wagon, marketed in North America as the "Sport Sedan", "5-Door" and "Sport Wagon", respectively. — and Luxury Sports trim, as a liftback. In New Zealand, the lineup consisted of 2.0L GLX (sedan only), 2.3L GSX (sedan, liftback, and wagon), and 2.3L Limited (sedan and liftback).In Australia, the lineup was first available in Limited trim, as a sedan; in Classic trim as sedan, hatch or wagon and in Luxury trim as a sedan and liftback
The first generation was marketed as a 2003 model in the United States and as a 2004 model in Canada. In Europe, the luxury sports model was available as a 120 hp (89 kW) direct injection turbodiesel ("DITD") estate up until 2007. As of 2008, the European Mazda catalog listed only the "Sport" version of the 146 hp (109 kW) turbodiesel estate, while the "Luxury Sport" version had been dropped.
Drivetrain combinations included the Mazda MZR engine in configurations of 1.8 L (L8-DE), 2.0 L (LF-VE) and 2.3 L (L3-VE), initially with a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission (with a sequential-automatic option, dubbed the "Four-Speed Sport AT"). In the US domestic market a 3.0 L Duratec 30 V6 engine was also available with a five-speed manual or five-speed automatic (with a sequential-automatic option, dubbed the "5-Speed Sport AT"). European and Australian versions also feature a four-cylinder turbodiesel that comes with a six-speed manual transmission and produces significantly more torque than the V6, with much improved fuel economy.
In North America, the 5-speed automatic optional on the V6 models were replaced by an Aisin 6-speed automatic for the 2005 model year. The four-cylinder model received a Jatco five-speed automatic in the following year. Power was directed to the front wheels in most markets, although full-time all-wheel-drive models were available in Japan, Europe, and Australia. Not all configurations were available in all areas – for example, the Mazda 6 as released in Australia was available in 2.3L four-cylinder guise only, when the 626 it replaced had been available with a choice of four- or six-cylinder engines. The MZI V6 engine was only fitted to vehicles manufactured at Mazda's Flat Rock Assembly Plant and destined for the U.S. and Canadian domestic markets.[ citation needed ]
Mazda's Hofu Plant in Yamaguchi Prefecture produced the Mazda6 for international markets from February 2002 to August 2007. In North America, Mazda6 production was handled at the AutoAlliance International plant in Flat Rock, Michigan. The first Mazda 6 rolled off the AAI assembly line on October 1, 2002, one month after 626 production ended. There are also satellite plants building Mazda 6 models in China and Thailand for local markets.
In September 2005, the Mazda 6 received a facelift which introduced 5-speed auto and 6-speed manual transmissions, standard 16- or 17-inch alloy wheels, and minor bodywork upgrades.
In China, the Mazda6 was introduced by FAW Mazda in 2003. Despite the release of its successors, the first generation car, known locally as the Maliu (马六, "Horse 6"), continues to be manufactured at FAW's Changchun plant, having sold over 770,000 units as of 2014.This model is also used as the base for the FAW Benteng, also known as Besturn B70 or Hongqi C301.

The 2006 Mazdaspeed6 (known as Mazdaspeed Atenza in Japan and Mazda6 MPS in Europe, South Africa and Australia) was a high-performance version of the first generation Mazda6. Its mission statement was written with the help of Peter Birtwhistle, chief of Mazda's advanced design studio in Germany at the time. It was initially unveiled as a concept at the 2002 Paris Motor Show. It features a turbocharged version of the 2.3 L MZR inline-four which produces 272 PS (200 kW) (European version is detuned to 260 PS (191 kW); the North American version, at 274 hp (204 kW), revised to 270 hp (201 kW) for 2007). All models have 280 lb⋅ft (380 N⋅m) of torque. The 2.3 L DISI turbocharged engine features direct fuel injection and conforms to the new Euro 5 emissions standards. All markets received a revised front fascia with a raised hood, a 6-speed manual transmission, and all-wheel drive. The all-wheel-drive system uses Mazda's Active Torque Split computer-based control, which can route between a 100/0 to 50/50 front/rear torque split depending on driving conditions. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a limited-slip differential.
Originally scheduled to be launched in June 2005, the Mazdaspeed Atenza was delayed until November. In North America, the Mazdaspeed6 comes in two trim levels; the "Sport" trim with cloth interior and standard key entry and ignition; and the "Grand Touring" trim with leather interior, keyless entry/ignition, and optional DVD navigation. Automatic climate control is standard, as is a 200 W Bose stereo system featuring seven speakers and a 9-inch subwoofer in addition to an in-dash six-disc CD changer. A sunroof with moonroof feature is optional on the Grand Touring trim.
The Mazdaspeed6 was released to generally positive reviews, and was noted for impressive power and handling.

The second generation Mazda6 made its premiere at the 2007 Frankfurt Auto Show in September.
The new Mazda6 is based on the Mazda GH chassis platform, a revised version of the GG chassis which Ford also still uses as their CD3 platform. Mazda continues to provide three body styles, including 4-door saloon (sedan), 5-door hatchback and wagon. A number of journalists have already praised its electrically assisted steering for being considerably improved compared to the previous generation, providing more feedback to the driver. The hatchback model even has a trunk space which beats the larger rival Ford Mondeo and Opel/Vauxhall Insignia (hatchback) by 200 liters with rear seats folded down.
This model of the Mazda6 was awarded 2010 Family Car of the Year by What Car? magazine.
At the 2010 Geneva Motor Show, Mazda announced their new 2011 Mazda6.
In China, over 680,000 Mazdas, including Mazda6 made between September 2008 and January 2016, were recalled due to faulty air bags. An earlier recall involved 280,000 Mazda6 models made between 2003 and 2008 for a similar issue.
The North American version was redesigned for the 2009 model year, with the wagon version being dropped there. It is a widened and lengthened version of the model sold elsewhere, with larger engines. Reviewers have noted its coupe-like roofline and sportier style. mph acceleration time of 6.1 seconds for the Mazda 6 V6.North American engine choices include a new 2.5-liter 4-cylinder and North American versions get the 3.7-liter V6 which is also available in the Mazda CX-9. Motor Trend recorded a 0–60
In America, only a sedan model was available (In the Middle East, USDM Mazda 6 known as Mazda 6 Ultra is sold alongside the JDM Mazda 6). A Mazdaspeed 6 variant was not offered. Despite the North American version's increase in dimensions, Mazda maintains that the 6 retains the overall driving experience is still sportier than rivaling Honda Accords, Toyota Camrys, or Chevrolet Malibus. Early reviews have been favorable.
On March 3, 2011, around 50,000 Mazda6 vehicles from the 2009–10 model years were recalled in the United States, with another 15,000 in Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico after it was found that Yellow Sac Spiders were building nests in the fuel line of the vehicles.The Mazda6 has two pipes coming from its gas tank, an extremely rare configuration. The amount of gasoline vapor in the fuel line is just strong enough to draw the spider in but not strong enough to kill it. On April 5, 2014, Mazda reissued the same recall for spiders against all 2010–2012 Mazda6 vehicles with 2.5 liter engines.
Production for North American market would be transferred to Hofu, Japan, when Mazda ceded production at Flat Rock Assembly Plant.
The last Mazda 6 rolled off the line at Mazda's Flat Rock Assembly Plant on Friday, August 24, 2012, with Mazda discontinuing production on American soil, effectively ending the 20 year joint-venture between Mazda and Ford.Mazda moved production of the Mazda 6 back to the Hofu factory in Japan.
In 2007, Mazda won its first manufacturers championship in the Touring Car class.In 2009, they finished 2nd in the manufacturer's championship with 65 points, behind Acura.
The Mazda 6 has also been used in the KONI Challenge Series Sport Touring class. It was last used in 2008 by the Baglieracing team with Dennis Baglier, Chris Gleason, and Marty Luffy as drivers.
The Mazda 6 also gives its name to a stock car in the NASCAR Corona Series.

The third generation Mazda6 sedan was unveiled during Moscow International Automobile Salon on 29 August 2012, and the station wagon version followed during the 2012 Paris Motor Show in the following month. In this generation, there are only 4-door sedan and 5-door station wagon versions available.The design was previewed by both the Takeri concept, unveiled at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show, and the Shinari concept from 2010.
The wagon is no longer offered in the North American market due to low demand for wagon models. Mazda is not alone in pulling their wagon variants from the North American market, as Volkswagen, BMW, Audi, and Mercedes-Benz have removed at least some or all of their wagon models from their North American lineup — the currently-sold (2016) VW Golf Sportwagen is an exception to the drought of import station wagon availability in North America.
Its design has been extremely well-received, and was a finalist in the "2013 World Design of the Year".
In July 2019, the "Atenza" nameplate was dropped in the Japanese market as part of Mazda's new global naming structure.
The Japanese-market Mazda Atenza went on sale from 1 November 2012. Early models include 20S (sedan/wagon), 25S (sedan/wagon), XD (sedan/wagon), XD L-package (sedan/wagon).
For 2014, the changes include SCBS (smart city brake support) become standard for the Atenza 20S and XD, increased efficiency for Skyactiv-G 2.5 engine models to 16.0 km/L (JC08 mode), new slide glass sunroof option for Skyactiv-D 2.2 engine models, addition of XD L-package (6-speed manual transmission, leather seats), Bose 11-speaker sound system with Centerpoint 2 surround sound become standard in XD L-package models, addition of deep crystal blue mica body colour to total of 7 body color options.
In China, the third generation is sold under the Atenza nameplate, to differentiate it from the first generation Mazda6, which is still being produced in China.
In the Philippines as Mazda's local distributor, Berjaya Auto Philippines has unveiled the all-new, third generation Mazda6 sedan are went on-sale by the end of 2013 as a 2014 model year, and followed by a 5-door station wagon variant, the Mazda6 Sports Wagon in late 2014 for 2015 model year (for gasoline engines in 2015 and a diesel engine for 2016 to 2018). In October 2018, Mazda Philippines has revealed the newly refreshed Mazda6 sedan and wagon (for diesel and gasoline variants) during the 7th Philippine International Motor Show on October 24 to 28.
The Atenza Sedan design concept 2014 is a version of Mazda Atenza Sedan with Skyactiv-D engine, Skyactiv-MT 6-speed transmission, original aero parts, Brembo brake caliper, Soul red body color, roof, aluminum wheel, aero parts; semi-bucket seat and Alcantara interior upholstery.

In Australia 138 kW (185 hp) and 250 N⋅m (180 lb⋅ft), a turbocharged 2.5L Skyactiv-G petrol four-cylinder engine producing 170 kW and 420 Nm, or a 2.2L Skyactiv-D twin-turbo diesel four-cylinder engine producing 129 kW (173 hp) and 420 N⋅m (310 lb⋅ft). The 5-door hatchback version of the first and second generation models is no longer available, in favour of sedan and wagon versions (both available in Sport, Touring, GT SP and Atenza trim ). The only available transmission is Mazda's 6-speed Skyactiv-Drive automatic. Notably, Mazda's Skyactiv technologies have reduced the petrol model's fuel consumption from an official figure of 8.9 L/100 km (26.4 mpg‑US) (5-speed auto) for the previous generation to 6.6 L/100 km (35.6 mpg‑US), a 25% improvement. The diesel's fuel economy gain was less marked, from 5.9 L/100 km (39.9 mpg‑US) for the previous manual transmission-only diesel model to 5.4 L/100 km (43.6 mpg‑US) for the new automatic-only offering.and New Zealand, the Mazda6 is sold with a 2.5L Skyactiv-G petrol four-cylinder engine producing
Germany is one of the countries in Europe where Third Generation is offered with AWD system.
The third-generation, 2014 Mazda6 was unveiled at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show. North American models with the Skyactiv-G 2.5-liter gasoline engine went on sale in January 2013. Models with the Skyactiv-D diesel engine were originally planned for the second half of 2013, but the introduction of the diesel variant of Mazda6 to the U.S. market was delayed due to emission issues.In 2014, the diesel engine was delayed again, effectively cancelling the program for at least this generation of the model. The diesel engine is available on both the Asian and European models of the third generation Mazda6. The North American models are no longer offered with a V6 engine.
The 2.5 L produces 184 hp (137 kW) and has an EPA rating of 26 mpg‑US (9.0 L/100 km; 31 mpg‑imp) City and 37 mpg‑US (6.4 L/100 km; 44 mpg‑imp) Highway (with the 6-speed automatic).
In the United States, the Mazda6 is available in three models: Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring, and is offered only as a four-door sedan. While all three models offer their own distinct features, all of the models offer these features as standard equipment:
The Sport and Touring models are offered with the choice of either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission, while the top-of-the-line Grand Touring is only offered with a 6-speed automatic. In Canada, GX, GS and GT trim levels are offered and all have a 6-speed manual transmission standard.
The Grand Touring model with Technology Package and Advanced Package added features such as radar cruise control, forward obstruction warning, lane departure warning, and automatic high beam control. For 2016, the Grand Touring introduced LED Headlights in lieu of bi-xenon HID headlights, new LED daytime running lights, and LED fog lights. The 2016 Grand Touring with Technology Package also introduced Smart Brake Support (SBS)which is different from Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) which was introduced in earlier Mazda models such as the CX-5. Although the two systems are similarly named, they perform different functions at different speed ranges.
The 2015 Mazda6 was named a Top Safety Pick Plus by the IIHSwhen equipped with available Smart City Brake Support. It was also named as a 2015 Car and Driver 10 Best pick, a "rare car that looks like it drives and drives like it looks."
In May 2021, Mazda announced it would discontinue the Mazda6 as well as the CX-3 in North America for the 2022 model year. Mazda cited shifting consumer preferences to larger crossover SUVs as the reasoning, adding that the similarly priced CX-5 outsells the Mazda6 by a margin of 9-to-1.
The North American 2014 Mazda6 Grand Touring trim with Technology Package introduced the Mazda i-ELOOP (intelligent-Energy Loop) technology. i-ELOOP is a regenerative engine braking system that uses the free wheeling alternator to capture energy when coasting.
The captured energy is stored in a capacitor, and that stored energy is then used to power the car's electrical components—from the AC to the power steering—and in turn, improves real–world fuel efficiency by as much as 5 percent. The i-ELOOP equipped cars, which also use active grill shutters at highway speeds, claim an EPA mileage rating of 28 mpg‑US (8.4 L/100 km; 34 mpg‑imp) City/40 mpg‑US (5.9 L/100 km; 48 mpg‑imp) Highway, 2 mpg better EPA mileage ratings than the standard gasoline engine Mazda6 with 26/38. The capacitor can store in seconds enough energy to run the car electronics for several minutes. The capacitor system offers large weight and space savings over batteries. i-ELOOP also achieves better gas mileage by disengaging the alternator during acceleration.
A mid-cycle refresh for the 2018 Mazda6 was unveiled in November 2017 at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show. Changes to the 2018 Mazda6 include new front and rear fascias, new aluminum-alloy wheel designs, standard i-Activsense driver assistance technologies on all Mazda6 trim levels, new interior fabrics and upholsteries, and two new trim levels, Grand Touring Reserve and Signature. While the base Sport and Touring trims receive the previously-available 187-horsepower, 2.5L Skyactiv I4 gasoline engine, the Grand Touring, Grand Touring Reserve, and Signature trims receive a 2.5L Skyactiv turbocharged I4 gasoline engine that produces 227 horsepower (250 horsepower on high octane fuel). A six-speed automatic transmission is standard on all trim levels except the base Sport trim, while a six-speed manual transmission remains available only on the base Sport trim level. A diesel engine for the North American market has not yet been announced for the Mazda6, although it has been announced for the 2019 Mazda CX-5 compact crossover SUV. As before, the facelifted Mazda6 continues to be produced at Mazda's assembly plant in Hiroshima, Japan.
The 2018 Mazda6 was Mazda's first vehicle to receive both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.A software update was available for 2018 Mazda6 owners that added these capabilities, and newer Mazda6 models are equipped with these features from the factory.
The manual transmission was discontinued for the 2019 model year, though Mazda hinted that it might be available as a special-order option in the future.
In 2013, Mazda entered the new GX class of the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series, with Mazda6 cars powered by its 2.2L diesel Skyactiv-D engine.During the first race at Rolex 24 At Daytona in January 2013, all three cars had to retire in the first few hours due to engine failure. Mazda ultimately won the 2013 GX class championship, beating rivals Porsche and Lotus. It was the only year for the class before the series rolled into the United (now WeatherTech) SportsCar Championship.
The Mazda6 is also presently used as a racing vehicle for the GTS class at SCCA Pro Racing World Challenge. Mazda finished first in the manufacturer's championship standings.Mazda6 drivers also finished first and second in the Touring Car driver points.
The Mazda6 was second place in the 2003 European Car of the Year awards and made Car and Driver magazine's Ten Best list for 2003. The Sport Wagon won the Canadian Car of the Year Best New Station Wagon award, while the Sport sedan won the Canadian Car of the Year Best New Family Car award for 2005. The Atenza Wagon also won What Car?'s Best Estate award in 2004. Also the Mazda6 won the 2003 Semperit Irish Car of the Year.
The Mazda6 won the 'Best Mid-size Car (over $28,000)' title in Australia's Best Cars in 2002 and 2003. [ citation needed ]It came second in 2004, behind the Subaru Liberty, and fifth in 2005 (the Honda Accord Euro was first in 2005). Wheels magazine also awarded the Mazda6 winner of its Active Safety Program in July 2005. In December 2007 the Mazda6 won the Carsales Peoples Choice award for its class in Australia.
The Mazda6 also won "Best Family Sedan" in MotorWeek's 2009 Driver's Choice Awards.
The Mazda 6 was praised for its edgy handsome design, communicative steering, and tight suspension. However, as it was designed as a world car in order to fit the needs of Europe and Japan, it was smaller than its North American contemporaries in the midsize segment, being criticized for its reduced passenger space. Its acceleration, particularly the V6 engine models, lagged behind that of its rivals as well.
The hatchback's liftback/notchback styling was considered a clever design to disguise it as a four-door saloon, as North Americans generally considered trunks more elegant than hatches. The estate had an early demise, but the hatchback was somewhat successful in Canada, especially in Québec, though it would not have a 2009 refresh, as both models were unpopular in the US.
The Ford Laser is a compact car, originally a subcompact car in the first three generations, which was sold by Ford in Asia, Oceania, and parts of South America and Africa.

The Hyundai Elantra or Hyundai Avante, is a compact car produced by the South Korean manufacturer Hyundai since 1990. The Elantra was initially marketed as the Lantra in Australia and some European markets. In Australia, this was due to the similarly named Mitsubishi Magna Elante model; similarly, in other markets, the name Avante is not used due to its similarity with Audi’s "Avant" designation, which is used for their line-up of station wagons. The name was standardized as "Elantra" worldwide in 2001.
