Mazda has revealed the 2014 Mazda6 and with it some details about the changes to the midsize car. The 2014 Mazda6 will be on display at the 2012 Moscow Motor Show from August 29 to September 9. Mazda has not announced all of the 6’s specs yet, but will be holding a press conference at the auto show to explain most of the features. The 2014 Mazda6 is easily recognizable as an evolution of the current car, but looks a lot more slippery and follows what Mazda calls the Kodo styling more.
Don’t be surprised if we don’t get U.S.-specific specs until later on though, the engine in the Russian version is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that won’t be available in the United States. According to Automotive News, via The Truth About Cars, the U.S. 2014 Mazda6 will have a 2.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine with a full setup of Mazda’s Skyactiv technology.
The 2014 Mazda6 will use a brake energy regeneration system, similar to the ones found on hybrids. Mazda will call the technology i-ELOOP, and it won’t use an electric motor but will instead store the energy from the brakes in capacitors that will power the electrical systems of the vehicle and save engine power that way.
