Improved Economy For New Mazda 6 at SG Petch
The award-winning new Mazda6 is now available with improved fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions at SG Petch, in Darlington and Durham – enhancements that make it one of the most frugal cars in its class.
Emissions levels on the SKYACTIV-D 2.2-litre diesel saloon models, with its powerful 150ps four-cylinder engine and manual gearbox, have been lowered by four per cent, from 108g/km to 104g/km. The corresponding improvement in fuel economy takes the combined cycle figure from 67.3mpg to a remarkable 72.4mpg.
“The new Mazda6 has already proved popular, but these improvements to emissions and economy mean buyers do not have to downsize to a smaller engine in order to achieve a higher mpg figure,” explains Sam Petch, Dealer Principal at SG Petch.
The changes have been made without compromising Mazda’s renowned driveability, and also strengthen the new Mazda6’s credentials as a true no compromise car for motorists looking for the perfect blend of performance, economy and safety wrapped up in a highly competitive package,” adds Petch.
For the new Mazda6 Tourer with the same powertrain, emissions are reduced by five per cent to 110g/km from 116g/km and economy improves from 64.2mpg to 67.3mpg, moving it from band C to the lower band B for road fund licence purposes.
The improvements – the result of production modifications – also reinforce new Mazda6’s award-winning credentials. Since its launch in January, new Mazda6 has won numerous awards including ‘Best Large Family Car’ (saloon) and ‘Best Estate Car’ (tourer) from the influential website CarBuyer linked to the weekly Auto Express magazine, as well ‘Best Family Car’ in the Auto Express New Car awards, and most recently the ‘Eco Car Award’ at the Scottish Car of the Year awards.
New Mazda6 buyers are offered a choice of 36 saloon and tourer models with three equipment levels (SE, SE-L and Sport – with or without Satellite Navigation) and four high-efficiency SKYACTIV diesel and petrol powertrains. Prices range from £19,595 to £28,295 (on-the-road).
