The current V-6 engine is rated at 272-hp, while the new four-cylinder Skyactiv is rated at 155-hp. ?Mazda would not say if a V-6 Skyactiv engine was in the works, but that it would not rule out such an engine. There are also rumors of a Skyactiv diesel for some future U.S. Mazda products.
The new generation Mazda6 design is based on the Takeri concept (shown here), which debuted at the Tokyo auto show in 2011 and again at this 2012 New York show.?
