2018 Mazda6 getting more power, concept-inspired looks

2018 Mazda 6 treated to power boost, more features

At the end of November of the current year at the motor show in Los Angeles will host the debut of the new Mazda 6 sedan.

Aside from the new turbo engine, the 2018 Mazda6 will be "thoroughly re-engineered", according to Mazda.

The Mazda6 has seen only moderate upgrades since its well-received, current-generation debut in 2012. A new 2.5-liter gasoline engine with cylinder deactivation will be the standard offering for the auto.

The Mazda6 sedan is finally getting something we've wanted for quite some time - more power. Under the hood model is a turbocharged engine of 2.5 liters, the performance of which is 231 a horse with a torque of 420 Nm.

AT&T is advising customers to restart their smartphone or put it in and out of airplane mode and that should fix the issue. Users have reported on social media that they can not make or receive calls, according to the Dallas Morning News .

Also interesting is the second engine option, which will be familiar to those who have read about the new Mazda CX-9 crossover. So much so that the torque output is on par with some V8 engines with nearly twice the displacement, Mazda says.

Beyond that, an array of advanced safety features and amenities from i-ActiveSense will be available on the 2018 Mazda6. The adaptive cruise control system has been revised to be capable of bringing the vehicle to a complete stop and take off again when the auto in front moves, and there's a new 360-degree parking camera option. The adaptive cruise can now function in stop-and-go situations without driver input to the pedals.

The styling updates will bring the Mazda 6 further in-line with the brand's latest offerings like the new CX-9 and CX-5 SUVs, and Mazda has worked to refine the interior and exterior with new lines and more premium materials.
