    The six-speed auto variant will be priced from £24,845, while the higher spec SE-L LUX Nav+ models will also be part of Mazda's initial offering, priced from £24,445.

    At launch there will be only one diesel engine, the 2.2-litre Skyactiv-D unit producing 148bhp. The entry level diesel will be the SE-L Nav+ at £25,445, rising to £26,845 for the higher spec LUX car.


    The range will also include a more powerful 181bhp 2.2-litre diesel in Sport Nav spec. Also arriving in the UK will be a new 2.5-litre petrol, delivering the same power, and boasting cylinder deactivation technology. It will, however, be limited to range topping GT Sport Nav+ trim. It’ll be priced from £30,695. (Related: Mazda lifts the wraps from limited edition MX-5)


    Externally there are minimal styling changes to the 2018 Mazda6 range. Most noticeable is the front grille, which has been updated with a new mesh design, while the headlights gain some chrome detailing.


    There’s also a new shade of metallic red paint, and the Mazda6 range can be specced with 17 and 19-inch wheels.

    There are bigger changes inside the cabin, where a new eight-inch infotainment screen dominates. Higher-spec trim levels also gain a seven-inch digital instrument cluster. The eagle-eyed amongst you will also notice the buttons on the centre console have been simplified and downsized, as have the air vents above.


    The Japanese car maker also claims the tweaks it’s made to the new Mazda6’s chassis and suspension geometry deliver a smoother ride and improved agility.


    Mazda’s i-ACTIVSENSE safety technology too has increased on the 2018 model, with Mazda Radar Cruise Control, Advanced Smart City Break Support, Lane Keep Assist, and Blind Spot Monitoring with rear cross traffic alert all standard on the new high-spec cars.
