The Spyder7 report claims that the car will draw inspiration for its styling in Mazda’s Vision Coupe Concept, which was an open-air car that had a ridiculously long hood and sleek greenhouse. The car is said to have a brand new grille design that will be the next trend in styling for the company, along with having an H-shaped diffuser.

Mazda’s powertrain line-up will comprise the 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel inline engine coupled to the 48-volt mild hybrid system. The gasoline-powered inline-six is likely to be hybrid. Spyder7 also claims about the possibility that Mazda6 will also come with a plug-in hybrid as well as an all-electric version later on in its lifecycle. It’s not known if the rear-wheel-drive Mazda6 will be sold in the US since the automaker had announced earlier in the year that the sedan, as well as the CX-3, will not be offered within the US. But, the new Mazda6 could bring the model’s triumphant return.
