Mazda has finally revealed the long-awaited 2014 Mazda6 at this years Moscow Auto Show. The all-new Mazda6 boasts every essence of the Takeri sedan concept vehicle, inspired by the KODO “soul of motion” design language which first made its debut in the new 2013 Mazda CX-5. This new Mazda styling encompasses not only elegance and grace, but also the strength, performance and efficiency of Mazda’s SKYACTIVE® Technology.

Mazda says the American market specifications will be released at a later date. However engine options revealed at the show include a 148-hp SkyActiv-G 2.0-liter four cylinder and a 189-hp 2.5-liter Sky-Activ-G four cylinder. However that doesn’t give any additional insight as to Mazda’s plans to cast aside the 2012 model’s 272-hp 3.7-liter V6 which helped excel previous models farther upmarket.

It should be noted that previous Mazda6 offerings have received respected industry awards including the 2009 MotorTrend Car of the Year. With the 2014 model’s exciting reintroduction with a more muscular face and smaller body size we should expect a great response to Mazda’s latest KODO “soul of motion” offering.
