Bearing the name KODO – Soul of Motion, the design philosophy behind Mazda’s vehicles focuses on instilling life to the automobiles it shapes. A car, in the eyes of the Japanese manufacturer, is not simply an inanimate amalgam of metal, plastic and wires, but a creature in its own right. In order for a vehicle to be ready for production, an emotional bond must be created between it and the driver.
Does that sound peculiar? Perhaps, but to an automotive enthusiast it shouldn’t; a car is not just a car – it has a soul, a name, it must be taken care of and respected. Perhaps from this very reason, the Mazda 6 has become a worldwide success. Sold in more than one million examples since its introduction on the market in 2002, the car has evolved through its third generation.
Originally, the Mazda 6 came in three configurations – sedan, wagon and hatchback, but the latest generation featured only the first two, as the hatchback body style was reserved for the Mazda 3. Both front and all-wheel drive variants are available, while engine choices come in gas and diesel form. With displacement ranging from 2.0 to 2.5 liter, all motors feature an inline, 4 cylinder architecture. As a curiosity, the 2.2 liter SkyActiv-D engine is shared with LMP2 racing cars from Lola.
