    All-New 2014 Mazda 6 Is Coming Soon

    The ceremony devoted to the beginning of production of the all-new 2014 Mazda 6 was held at Mazda's Hofu Plant in Hiroshima, Japan, where the company is planning to produce nearly 120,000 units per year. According to Mazda, the design of the vehicle will be strongly influenced by the Mazda Takeri Concept that was unveiled at the fall 2011 Tokyo Motor Show.

    The Mazda 6, the midsize sedan, will feature the company's ''KODO – Soul of Motion'' design and Skyactiv Technology, offering 2.0-liter Skyactiv-G gasoline engine. The customers will be free to choose either the Skyactiv-Drive six-speed automatic or the Skyactiv-MT six-speed manual transmission. In comparison with the Mazda Takeri, the 2014 Mazda 6 is said to have reshaped door mirrors, tail lights, headlamps, and smaller wheels. The interior, in its turn, will be less fanciful than the Takeri’s with the more conventional controls and gauges and seating for 5 passengers instead of 4.

    The details are vague, but the all-new Mazda 6 is supposed to debut at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, and it's scheduled to be introduced to the U. S. market at the beginning of 2014. The company hopes the vehicle will break out of its segment's monotonous mold and become increasingly competitive versus the current sales leaders such as the newly redesigned Nissan Altima, Honda Accord, and Ford Fusion.

    Mazda Motor Corporation has just announced its decision to terminate the production of Mazda6 model in the Unites States. Currently, Mazda builds its midsize sedan at the AutoAlliance International facility, established in 1985 in Michigan. The automaker intends to transfer production of the next version of Mazda6 to Hofu Plant, an automobile manufacturing complex in Japan.

    "The decision was made after carefully assessing all risks and opportunities, including global needs, changing demand in North America, and exchange rate exposure. Going forward, Mazda will strive to maintain and grow our business in America”, said said Takashi Yamanouchi, Representative Director and Chairman of the Board, President and CEO of Mazda Motor Corporation.

    The AutoAlliance International factory is a joint venture of Ford Motor Company and Mazda Motor Corporation. Both automotive giants are focused on the future partnership. At present the plant in Flat Rock, Michigan, produces the current-generation Mazda6, unveiled in 2007, and the Ford Mustang. The profitability of the factory is estimated to be sufficient, with 240,000 units built per year. The figures of the last year showed a substantial decrease. Mazda may move production of the Mazda6 to Mexico, where it would be cheaper to produce the vehicle.
