This is the striking face of the new Mazda6 which makes its world debut at next month’s Frankfurt Motor Show.
Due to go on sale in the UK in December, the 6 is a crucial car for Mazda as it replaces a model that first catapulted the brand into fleet managers’ minds.
Details of the range are sketchy at present, although the range will include saloon, hatchback and estate bodystyles. Expect the range of petrol and diesel engines to carry over.
Mazda is promising gains in quality, as well as improved environmental and safety performance with the new model.
