2014 Mazda6 Receives Top Safety Pick+ Rating

Sunday, September 29th, 2013

Safest Family Cars of 2013

2014-mazda6-top-safety-pick

On top of the most elite safety rating possible, the 2014 Mazda6 is capable of travelling 38 mpg on the highway.

Last year, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety decided to up their standards. This means that new cars flaunting a Top Safety Pick rating are no longer the safest cars available. IIHS has added a new small overlap front test and those who are able to pass it with nothing less than an acceptable score, are getting a Top Safety Pick+ rating. The plus rating has already been awarded to the 2014 Mazda6, making it one of the safest family cars of 2013. (more…)

Mazda Concept Cars

Many of the redesigned features of the 2014 Mazda6 were pulled from the Shinari concept car.

It’s always interesting to look at the concept car designs that manufacturers are releasing, and with Mazda always focusing on the design of their vehicles, their concept cars are usually among the most interesting. An exact replica of a concept car will almost never be available for mass production because they’re not really made for practical use. Rather, the Mazda concept cars focus on showing off new design elements or technology. (more…)

2014 Mazda6 Diesel Engine to Hit U.S. Next Spring

2014 Mazda6 U.S. Release Date

2014-mazda6-diesel-release-date

The 2.2-liter Clean Diesel engine will be capable of 310 lb-ft of torque.

For those of you who have been anticipating the 2014 Mazda6 Diesel U.S. release date, there is some bad news. The manufacturer announced earlier this month that the fuel-efficient engine will be postponed until the end of next spring. Instead of the end of the year—when the official release was originally planned—it will arrive in April when the final stages of emissions testing and certification are completed. Mazda will be the first Japanese car manufacturer to have a diesel engine powering a car in the states. Here at Mazda of Lodi, we can’t wait to allow our customers the chance to reap all of the benefits of diesel engines.

It’s believed that the cause of the delay is the strict emissions standards for diesel in America. They are some of the toughest emissions tests in the world to pass, which is why many manufacturers have strayed from putting the engines under the hood of their U.S. models. However, Mazda has gone out of their way as usual to make sure that their customers get what they want. (more…)

Zoom-zoom. As the recognizable Mazda catch phrase, zoom-zoom signifies much more than the manufacturers’ proclivity for producing high-performance automobiles. Nested in the popular slogan is a defining characteristic, a philosophy indicative of the way Mazda views the automotive experience. Simply put, Mazda strives to not only make quality cars, but make them fun to drive as well. (more…)
