In 2012, the first iteration of the Mazda 6 was released. After 6 years, a facelift was released. The new version was met with enthusiasm by drivers all over the world. Mazda purists are now very excited at the news that this facelift is about to get some upgrades. After that, it is highly likely to be released as the 2021 Mazda 6. Here is all we know about it.
To indicate that it’s an upgrade, the exterior of this Mazda 6 could receive a number of adjustments. The dimensions of the car will most likely be increased by a few inches on the length and the breadth. Its grille is also highly likely to be more aggressive. It is also quite possibly going to have substantial chrome on it as well. The Mazda emblem is also posted smack in the middle of the new model’s grille. The new car is likely to have more aggressive sculpting on its body panels. This is so as to make sure that it has a sporty appearance. The front and rear lights are also quite possibly going to have LED technology embedded in them. This technology is also most likely going to be extended to the indicators which are located on the rear view mirrors.

From what we’ve uncovered, we can expect that the 2021 Mazda 6 will come with a Personal Clip. This is where drivers get an opportunity to determine the comfort amenities in the cabin. We predict that the new model will have a collection of premium features. From all the information that is currently available about the car, they could include Ultrasuede décor or natural Nappa leather on the seats and armrests. The dashboard could also be equipped with various types of hardwood.
Another feature which we hope that the 2021 Mazda will have is ventilated seats. They could also have heating elements, a hot-stone massage function, and 24-way electronic adjustment. For infotainment, the new model could have an 8-inch infotainment touch screen display. To deliver maximum entertainment, it could have Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as well as Mazda Link Up. In this way, the occupants of the crossover can receive their information from various sources at all times.

Another convenient facility in this new car that we expect to find is some automatic windscreen wipers and de-icing system. It is also quite likely to have a heads up display system. Working together, these features increase the convenience and ease of driving this car. Just like its previous model of this car, it will have room for 5 passengers on 2 rows.
Chassis and suspension changes
In the Mazda 6, there could be some substantial changes in its chassis and drivetrain. From what we know, this new model could have a modular SkyActiv chassis. The suspension could also be electronically adjustable from its driver-centric cabin. This allows the driver to pick the suspension tightness depending on the current terrain or driving conditions. With this new setup, drivers can actually make the car highly sensitive to steering, terrain, and speed.
Engine and specs
In the 2021 Mazda 6, we expect that there’ll be a new engine under the hood. This is highly likely to be a 2.5-liter turbocharged engine. When fed with 93 octane gas, it is expected to produce a total of 227 horsepower. Power from this engine is delivered to the wheels through a 6-speed automatic transmission. We are quite confident that drivers will be able to manage fuel economy in this new car much more easily. That’s due to the cylinder deactivation feature that is highly likely to be contained in the car.
Price, Release Date and Availability
The 2021 Mazda is most likely going to be released in 2019. It was already teased in showrooms towards the end of 2018. Seeing as it is an upgrade, this estimated release date is fairly accurate. That’s because not much change is being performed from its chassis going up. The base version of this upgrade is expected to cost $23,000. With the extra features, the premium trims of this car are bound to have a price of $35,000 going upwards upon release!
