If we can trust those reports on the internet, the 2020 Mazda 6 New Generation based on Shinari Concept is about to come. The famous mid-size sedan is definitely one of the most anticipated Japanese cars for the near future.
The excellent family car is present for about 15 years. The original model came in 2002, while the current third generation is present since 2012. All this indicate that redesign should happen pretty soon. According to some reports, we will see it somewhere in 2019, while the production model will come as 2020 Mazda 6.
So far, the company didn’t release any official information about the new generation. However, there are many of rumors around, so we must rely on them. There are various amazing predictions about the new model, including some completely new design solutions, but there are also some little more realistic reports about the famous sedan.
2020 Mazda 6 New Generation will be based on Shinari Concept?
This is something that can find in many places on the network. According to these reports, the new model will resemble the amazing 2010 concept in many aspects, mainly in terms of visual appearance. Since this concept is for about seven years old, it is questionable can this work at all. Meanwhile, the company presents a completely new concept called Vision. The new car definitely continues in a similar manner, but it is hard to even compare these two cars.
The new concept comes with a more attractive design. It looks like a true premium car, in many aspects even exotic. It does mix some details from another carmaker, but it definitely has a strong personality. So strong that we can say this is one of the most amazing concept cars we have seen in the last couple of years. So, the 2020 Mazda will more likely resemble this one.
2020 Mazda 6 New Generation gets an RWD?
It is clear that the 2020 Mazda 6 will ride on a completely new architecture. However, some reports go even that far to suggest a completely new layout. According to them, we will see a new, highly modular platform that can be configured both to FWD and RWD, which sounds pretty unrealistic. On the other side, many believe that the new generation will use an RWD architecture from Toyota. The company will do some modification on the platform and use it for both new 2020 Mazda 6 and new RX-9. Furthermore, this leads us to the relationship with the new BMW 3 Series. However, we can hardly imagine something like this on the new sedan, if we consider that pretty much none of the mid-size cars doesn’t go on rear wheels nowadays. Also, a development of such architecture will cost a real fortune, which even biggest carmakers can’t afford nowadays.
2020 Mazda 6 New Generation – New Technologies
The new generation of this amazing sedan will include various new technologies. As we already mentioned, the company will introduce a completely new architecture. It will utilize a whole bunch of new technologies. Besides expected things like weight reduction, we are about to see a completely new generation of new engines. It is already known that the next-generation Mazda 3 will get a completely new SkyActive X HCCI engine. It will bring many benefits, both in terms of power and economy.
The first engine of the new generation will have a displacement of 2.0 liters and it will find its way to the new 2020 Mazda 6 as well. Also, we expect to see a bigger 2.5-liter engine with new technology, which will bring even more amazing performances. The company also works on a completely new generation of diesel engines. They will come in early 2020’s.
2020 Mazda 6 New Generation production
It is still early for some more precise release date. However, we are pretty sure that the new 2020 Mazda 6 will come somewhere in 2019, or maybe in early 2020.
