    Rumor: Next Mazda6

    From Japanes Best Car mag.
    Mazda and Toyota are co-developing a new RWD platform and a new inline-6 3.0L Skyactiv-X engine targeting 345hp. This platform and engine will be used on next Mazda6, Totota Crown and Toyota Mark-X.

    Some drawings were also included.

    I'd love to see some AWD sooner rather than later on a Mazda 6!

    Heck, Toyota is even going to provide an AWD option for the 4 cyl. Camry. I hope Honda responds and does the same with the Accord.

    I'd like a relatively inexpensive option for an AWD family sedan once the lease on my CX-9 ends in the spring of 2021. My wife got an SUV and so we're not seeing much reason to have two SUVs in the family anymore and I wouldn't mind having something more fun to drive.

    Mazda added AWD to the Mazda3, but not Mazda6 yet.
    That might happen if Mazda sees enough demand for that.

    Is it too early to start wishing for an AWD option?
    I wouldn't pay much attention to the drawing...
    It is too early to guess now.

    Probably be a couple years before it comes out Internationally, let alone North America
    NA is still waiting for the Skyactive-X to come over.

    Mazda cares very much about its *image* of reliability in US.
    They don't want to take risks.
    Reliability perception takes long time to rebuild...
