Midsize sedan sales are a big deal in America, and competition is fierce. Succeeding requires forward thinking in terms of both technology and style, which is why we think the new 2014 Mazda6 is going to be a sales hit. The sleek new sedan made its big debut at the LA Auto Show and will reach our Maine Mazda dealership early next year, but that’s not the only big news – it’s going to be available with a diesel engine!

Mazda’s SKYACTIV technology offers incredible fuel economy, as has been seen in the Mazda3 and Mazda CX-5, but the Mazda6 will be the first model available with the SKYACTIV-D diesel engine. While fuel economy numbers have yet to be released, we expect this diesel-equipped model to really expand how far Maine drivers can go between fill-ups, and the ample torque of the diesel engine should also make for a sedan that’s a joy to drive. We expect the diesel engine to become an option in the second half of 2013, but those looking for great fuel economy will surely be pleased with the 2014 Mazda6′s 2.5-liter SKYACTIV-G gasoline engine.

We won’t have to wait long to welcome the new model to our showroom, but if you can’t wait to get your hands on a top-notch sedan, come see why the current Mazda6 is so popular with discerning Maine drivers.
