Mazda is planning to launch a four-seat coupe based on the next generation Mazda6, previewed by the Takeri concept.
The next Mazda6 lineup will be rather extensive with a sedan, a hatchback and an estate version. The coupe will be added in 2014. So is Mazda thinking of a rival for Toyota’s new 86?
We certainly hope so. That simple yet stunning sportscar has a very good recipe which could be spiced up with Mazda’s natural charm, sportiness and driving fun. What’s more, Mazda has always been generous with power so their sports coupe would get a damn sight more than Toyota’s 200 hp.
The Mazda6 coupe will get 2.0-litre petrol or 2.2-litre diesel Skyactiv engines, and the new i-ELOOP system regenerative braking for great fuel economy.
This car’s definitely something to look forward to.
