The 2014 Mazda6 Delivers Impressive Performance and Fuel Economy

July 13th, 2013 by

2014 Mazda6For a long time now, keen auto buyers have had their eye on the Mazda6 for its sophisticated combination of style, economy, and responsive performance. The total redesign that this model has just undergone will undoubtedly make the 2014 Mazda6 a popular option for buyers everywhere, and it has now arrived at Biggers Mazda in Elgin. Honing in on perfecting the performance and efficiency of the internal combustion engine, there’s plenty of reason to get excited about this model’s impressive powertrain.

The Power

The 2014 Mazda6 gets its power from a 2.5L four-cylinder engine matched with a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. This powertrain delivers a solid 184 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque and goes from 0-60 in just 7.6 seconds, making it one of the fastest four-cylinder engines in a competitive midsize sedan segment. The Mazda6 adds more thrill to the ride with incredibly responsive driving dynamics that keep the car running tight through quick turns.

The Efficiency

While other auto manufacturers move toward expensive and less fun-to-drive hybrid and electric powertrains, Mazda has set its sights on modernizing the old-fashioned combustion engine. The results have been impressive. Mazda’s patented SkyActiv engines work through a combination of direct injection fuel and variable valve timing to maximize both power and fuel economy. There’s no doubt they’ve succeeded with the Mazda6, which gets a standard estimated 38 mpg highway and 26 mpg city.

The i-Eloop System

Drivers looking to up the efficiency even more without sacrificing any power can opt for the GT Technology package available with the Grand Touring trim. This package attains 40 mpg highway and 28 mpg city with the same powertrain by using the i-Eloop system. This system takes energy from the braking system and transfers it to a capacitor, which uses the energy for temporarily charging power electronics in the cabin like climate control, stereo, and infotainment.
