Mazda could introduce a RWD Mazda 6 powered by an inline-six in 2022

Mazda could introduce the next generation Mazda 6 next year

  • Mazda has been working on a RWD platform and an I6 engine for a while

  • The Mazda 6 is no longer available in North America, but the new generation could return

  • Rumours say the next Mazda 6 would use that new platform when it will be introduced in the first half of 2022

Mazda is quite secretive when it comes to its plans for the future, but we know to automaker is working on an inline six-cylinder engine and a rear-wheel-drive platform, both of which will underpin the next generation of Mazda 6 that will be introduced in early to mid-2022, according to rumours.

The next generation of Mazda 6 will take inspiration from the Vision Coupe Concept that was showed in 2017, and its proportions definitely hint at a RWD configuration, with its long hood and large rear fenders.

The new Mazda 6 will also have a new grille design that will be the next corporate identity used by the automaker across all of its models.

The new sedan will be powered by a new generation six-cylinder engines, a first for Mazda since the 2015 CX-9’s Ford derived V6 was put to pasture.

There will be a diesel 3.0L engine paired with a mild hybrid system, and a gasoline variant tha tis also expected to be a hybrid.

The diesel version is unlikely to reach North-America, and there is a possibility that the Mazda 6 itself will be reserved for Europe and Asia since the company announced the end of the current generation “6” earlier this year, but we will definitely see the RWD platform and the gasoline inline-six on our roads, perhaps in the next generation of the CX-5 which is also due to arrive in a couple of years.
