Model overview

The Mazda 6 or Mazda6 (associated as the Mazda Atenza in Japan and China) is a mid-size automobile manufactured by Mazda as 2002, following the long-produced Capella/626 in 2002. The vehicle was successful amongst customers, selling quicker than all former Mazda models.

The Mazda6 was sold as the initial model of the company's "Stylish, Insightful and Spirited" design conception, accompanied by the Mazda2 in 2002, the RX-8 in 2003, the Mazda3 2004, the Mazda5 in 2005, the MX-5 in 2005, and the CX-7 in 2006. The 2003 Mazda6 is the sixth-generation Mazda 626, as the Mazda6 remains on the G platform, growing from the GF-platform 626/Capella to the GG-platform Mazda6.

The initial-generation Mazda6 debuted in Japan as the Mazda Atenza in 2002. The model list included a four-door sedan, a four-door hatchback, and a five-door wagon, sold in North America as the "Sport Sedan", "5-Door" and "Sports Wagon", each. 

The Mazda 6 is available in five trim levels. The base model Sport and the Touring each are powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine (187 horsepower, 186 lb-ft). The Grand Touring, Grand Touring Reserve, and  Signature trims are equipped with a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder producing 250 hp and 310 lb-ft. All are paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.
