What’s New for ’09
- )The Mazda6, completely redesigned for ’09, is powered by either a 2.5L I-4, mated to a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission, or a 3.7L V-6, which transmits its power through an 6-speed automatic. Both engines are larger and more powerful than the 2.3L and 3.0L powerplants they replace.
- Unlike its predecessor, it is only available as a 4-door sedan and available in two trim levels, which are differentiated by engine displacement; both trim levels generate increased horsepower and return improved fuel efficiency over the outgoing models.
- The ’09 6 is larger all-around, gaining over 6 ins. (15.2 cm) in length and 2.3 ins. (5.8 cm) in width, while trunk volume increases by 10%.
- Touring and Grand Touring trim levels feature automatic proximity keyless entry with remote starting capability, while a blind-spot monitoring system, rain-sensing wipers and a Bluetooth hand-free phone interface all are optional.
