Leverkusen, 25 July 2012. Mazda Motor Corporation will hold the world premiere of the all-new Mazda6 sedan at the 2012 Moscow Motor Show. The Moscow Motor Show begins August 29 and runs through to September 9, 2012.

The new Mazda6 is the second of Mazda’s new generation of products which incorporate both the full range of SKYACTIV technologies and the new KODO-SOUL OF MOTION design language. It will also be the first model equipped with Mazda’s regenerative braking system, i-ELOOP.

It stands as the flagship model for a new generation of Mazda products. It features a sense of dignity, style, luxury feel and comfort expected from a vehicle in the CD segment whilst offering the pleasure of responsive and agile driving, which is at the core of the Mazda brand.

The model to be exhibited at the Moscow Motor Show is a Russian specification sedan equipped with a direct-injection SKYACTIV-G 2.0 gasoline engine and six-speed SKYACTIV–DRIVE automatic transmission.
