2012 Paris Auto Show

Just the Facts:
  • The Mazda 6 wagon officially launched at the 2012 Paris Auto Show.
  • The wagon is not confirmed for the U.S. market, nor is the diesel engine that powers it.
  • The Mazda 6 will go on sale in the U.S. in early 2013.

PARIS — Despite an appearance at the Moscow auto show, the 2012 Mazda 6 made its official mainstream auto show debut at the 2012 Paris Auto Show and did so with a wagon variant in tow.

The Mazda 6 should look familiar to anyone who's diligently followed the auto show circuit, as the (Euro) productionlike vehicle is nearly identical to the Takeri concept that debuted at the Tokyo auto show in 2011. This slick, new sedan proudly wears Mazda's new family face, which debuted in production form on the Mazda CX-5.

Like the Mazda 5, the new Mazda 6 sedan and wagon are powered by Mazda's Skyactiv powertrains. More than just engines, Skyactiv is, along with zoom-zoom, one of Mazda's new core philosophies that focuses on reducing weight and improving efficiency without sacrificing fun or what Mazda calls "oneness" with the car.

More specifically, the Mazda 6 carries either a 2.2-liter Skyactiv diesel, a 2.0-liter or a 2.5-liter gasoline-powered inline-4. Transmission offerings are six-speeds all around, manual or automatic.

Yeah, that's right, you'll be able to get a diesel wagon with a six-speed manual...if you live in Europe. The wagon is yet to be confirmed for the U.S. and if it is, don't expect it to be offered with the diesel engine.

Edmunds says: The 2014 Mazda 6 goes on sale here in early 2013 in sedan form, giving drivers a family-friendly alternative to the Camcord.

    The photo on the front page of this article is of the Mondeo (gag) not the Mazda6. Some sort of satire on your editor's part?

    You may want to remove the pictures of the Ford Fusion from the Mazda6 gallery. Really, Edmunds? Get it together. They don't look that similar.

    I didn't know Mazda were selling the new Mondeo as the 6.

    Yes, because both car are RED, and unexpectedly the Mazda also have a toothy grill. This makes sense.

  • You got me. Half those pictures are of a Mondeo.

    Bring that wagon here. It is amazing! I have a 2004 Mazda 6 wagon that I love with 180k on it & is still running strong but will have to eventually replace & I don't want a SUV, Crossover or Van! I carry just as much in the wagon & has the looks & handling of a sports sedan! Mazda, please listen, it will sell here!
