Mazda6 will lose a diesel engine in Europe

October 10, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Mazda is going to remove the diesel engine from the engine range of the Model 6 this month. And this applies not only to the sedan, but also the station wagon.

Thus, the Mazda6 will be sold on the European market exclusively with a gasoline engine. Note that Mazda’s own 2.2-liter diesel engine will disappear from the line due to new emission standards in Europe.

According to the representative of the Japanese company in the UK, the British can still buy a model 6 with a diesel unit from the remaining stocks until the end of this year.

Despite the fact that the Mazda6 will lose a 2.2-liter diesel, in Europe you can still buy a diesel model of this Japanese brand – it’s a crossover CX-5. It is unknown how long such a car will be available. Interestingly, the Skyactiv-D diesel engine will be offered for the Mazda6 2021 model year in the US, although the exact release date is currently unknown. This model is now presented on the Mazda website in the “Upcoming cars” category.

In addition, it was recently noted that the Mazda officially plans to return its rotary power unit. It should be emphasized that this was stated in a video published by the press center of the Japanese company.
