Outdoor adventurers who enjoy longer road trips, as well as commuters looking for a better fuel economy option, will be interested in what Mazda will soon be bringing to the streets of South Overland Park.

Visit Premier Mazda of Kansas City to learn more about the responsive Mazda6 diesel and its anticipated arrival at the end of the year.

Performance

A 2.2-liter twin-turbo inline four-cylinder SKYACTIV®-D diesel engine is set to be the newly available powertrain in the 2020 Mazda6. This diesel engine, expected to be exclusively available on the Signature trim level, will be paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel drivetrain to generate 168-hp and 290 lb-ft of torque. The combination of the athletic handling of the Mazda6 with the low-end torque of the diesel engine will benefit drivers who want or need to carry heavy loads.

Features

The Mazda6 Signature trim will include sport-styled, leather-trimmed seats which will embrace you as you cruise down the streets of Blue Springs, Shawnee, Leewood, and Belton. The rear passengers will stay warmer on cold-weather days with comfortable heated seats while the front passengers can adapt to all temperatures with both heated and ventilated seats. Mazda’s i-ACTIVSENSE® safety system will keep all occupants safer by employing leading-edge technology focused on averting collisions before they happen. For instance, the 360-degree view monitor, which utilizes four cameras, will make maneuvering more manageable and will also help spot any obstacles.

Technology

The Mazda6 Signature model will incorporate advanced technology such as a MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment system with an 8.0-inch touchscreen display and voice command, Bluetooth® capability, HD Radio™, Aha™, Pandora®, and Stitcher™ integration, a six-speaker sound system, two USB ports, remote keyless entry, and push-button start. Additional features will include SiriusXM® satellite radio, SiriusXM® Traffic and Travel Link®, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility, navigation, a Bose® Centerpoint® 2 surround-sound audio system with eleven speakers, and a full-color head-up display.
