The exterior has been updated with new, more angular headlamps, new front bumper and a revised grille on “6s” Sport models. High-intensity-discharge headlamps are standard on the V-6 Grand Sport. Fog lamps are now incorporated into the front spoiler on Sport and Grand Sport editions, while new side sills increase the ground-effects appearance. A deck-lid spoiler also is standard on these models. The Mazda6 lineup moves into the high-performance category with the introduction of the MazdaSpeed6 sedan. It is powered by a turbocharged direct-injection 2.3L engine that delivers its 274 hp to the road through a 6-speed manual gearbox and an all-wheel-drive system that can deliver torque to the front and rear wheels in any ratio from 50:50 to 100%. The lowered suspension also has been re-engineered to improve handling. Engine-speed-sensing power steering, 18-in. wheels and upgraded 4-wheel disc brakes also are part of the package. The exterior appearance has been modified with front fenders flared to clear the wider wheels and a hood bulge to clear the top-mounted intercooler.
