An award-winning model, Mazda6 Tourer represents a celebration of exciting driving. It incorporates an emotionally appealing design with cutting-edge cabin technology, and marries impressive performance and refinement with outstanding fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Mazda’s SKYACTIV Technology and KODO: Soul of Motion design language make this model, (like the “Takeri” concept car that was its original inspiration) a truly convention-defying vehicle.
Mazda6 Tourer can be discovered in more detail on a test drive with Lansdown Mazda in . Experience for yourself a luxurious cabin bursting with technology, the striking aesthetics of the exterior, and responsive, agile performance.
Soul of Motion design language takes inspiration from the power and agility of
wild animals, and the athletic looks of Mazda6 Tourer ensure that it stands out
from its closest competitors. Pronounced shoulders and a deeply contoured
fascia emphasise the authoritative front profile, whilst the streamlined body
and character lines endow the Tourer with an abiding sense of forward motion
even when it is stationary.
At the rear, twin exhausts and wide taillights enhance its profile, along with 17” alloy wheels. The SE-L Nav trim adds specification including auto-power folding door mirrors, privacy glass, front and rear parking sensors and dual-zone climate control air-conditioning, while the range topping Sport Nav features 19” Bright alloy wheels alongside LED headlights with daytime running lights, as well as LED fog lights. A notable exterior feature for Mazda6 is coming home / leaving home lights, which remain illuminated for a short time after stopping the engine; useful for those occasions when you reach your destination in darkness.
A lightweight body combined with SKYACTIV engines and transmissions mean that the Mazda6 Tourer is capable of performance that will both excite and impress. Buyers have the choice of a responsive 2.0 litre SKYACTIV-G petrol engine in 145ps or 165ps, or a punchy 2.2-litre SKYACTIV-D diesel engine with 150ps or 175ps.
Each variant delivers excellent responsiveness as well as reduced CO2 emissions and excellent fuel economy, because of both the low drag, aerodynamic bodywork and the advanced i-stop technology (placing the engine on standby when stationary in traffic, instantly restarting as soon as you are ready to go). The 150ps diesel emits as little as 116g/km, meaning that owners pay only £30 of Vehicle Excise Duty a year (and nothing in the first year), and consumes up to 64.2mpg of fuel (combined). The more powerful 175ps diesel, meanwhile, can achieve 0-62mph acceleration in eight seconds flat, and reach a top speed of 137mph.
Sporty and elegant on the outside, Mazda6 Tourer is equally refined when you get behind the wheel thanks to the supportive, reclining and height-adjustable black cloth seats (or leather in Sport Nav models), whilst the heated steering wheel of the Sport Nav provides comfort on those cold mornings. The clear and simple dashboard puts controls for a variety of functions within easy reach, and the electronic parking brake adds to the level of sophistication. Abundant headroom and legroom for front and rear passengers is complemented by superb build quality and detailed craftsmanship, with great attention paid to even the smallest components.
Air-conditioning is standard on all models to keep occupants refreshed, whilst the quiet and refined feel offers a peaceful environment. The vast storage space in the rear extends from 522 litres to a generous1664 litres when the split-folding rear seats are folded flat, while the karakuri tonneau cover hides luggage from prying eyes.
