The First Reviews Of The 2018 Mazda6 With Turbo Engine

Announced last year, the new 2018 Mazda6 has many new things to offer consumers. For starters, the 2018 Mazda6 is now powered by a powerful, fuel-efficient turbocharged engine that still features SKYACTIV technology. With this engine and a host of other enhancements, the new 2018 Mazda6 has even more to offer consumers looking for a sporty, dynamic and fun car to drive.


Let's see what journalists think of the new 2018 Mazda6.
Since the stylists were tasked with cleaning up the interior, just about everything has been touched up. The dashboard feels slimmer and slender, mostly due to the air vents which are a bit more stretched out and blend better into the dashboard. Instrumentation has also been minimized and in the case of the Signature version, a digital screen in the center allows you to customize the display to your liking. The contour lines are more harmonious and the design overlaps from front to back. If you choose the two-tone accents, as well as the suede-trimmed door panels and lower dashboard, the interior becomes simply stunning and the luxury effect is assured.


What's new is the arrival of the turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder that is also found in the CX-9. With its 227 horsepower - 250 horsepower if you feed it super fuel - this engine gives the vehicle its nobility back. Hard not to recommend it, as its excellent 310 lb-ft of torque makes the car much more responsive to our every need. On the road, the car takes up the torch of the old generation, its handling remains the most dynamic of the lot, and only the Ford Fusion Sport comes close to the Mazda in terms of dynamism. - The Car Guide

The real big news is what's going on under the car's sculpted hood. The 2018 Mazda6 will be the second car in the lineup to take advantage of the SKYACTIV-G 2.5T turbocharged 2.5-liter direct injection engine after the CX-9. The 4-cylinder produces 227 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. The increase in horsepower shouldn't influence fuel consumption too much, though withstanding all that torque is difficult. Those who don't want to take any risks can always opt for the normal 2.5-liter which now enjoys cylinder deactivation. - EcoloAuto
