August 8, 2023, Manila Philippines--Mazda Philippines is celebrating two decades of Zoom-Zoom with the release of the new Mazda6 range, bringing with it a series of design, dynamic, safety, and connectivity updates, including the availability of the special 20th Anniversary Edition model.
For 20 years and across three generations, the Mazda6 mid-sized sedan has constantly evolved to embody Mazda’s Zoom-Zoom brand DNA. Through a series of updates, it has matured in tandem with the brand’s journey towards a heightened sense of premium and refinement.
Commemorating this milestone, the Mazda6 20th Anniversary Edition features special badging on each front fender, a high-gloss front grille, and high-gloss silver 19-inch alloy wheels. Further enhancing its KODO design, it is exclusively offered in the latest, newly-developed Takuminuri Colors: Artisan Red Premium and Rhodium White Premium.
Mazda considers color as an integral part of its design form and has developed Takuminuri Colors—a precise, high-quality finish—for that purpose.
Rhodium White Premium is a pure white color inspired by Japanese aesthetics that find beauty in simplicity. The paint’s fine grain accentuates the shadows on the Mazda6’s surface, complimenting the underlying metallic texture.
Meanwhile, Artisan Red Premium conveys a deep, lush red found in mature red wine. This color accentuates the strength and beauty of the Mazda6’s lines. It exudes a fine-grained transparent red shining brightly, while the dominant shade produces a profound depth and richness, rendering a high level of contrast.
The Mazda6 20th Anniversary Edition showcases Mazda’s high level of craftsmanship where a tan color palette accentuates the sophisticated cabin. Luxurious Leganu suede runs through the length of the dashboard, while full-grain Nappa leather seats give the entire cabin a rich, dignified feel. The front seat headrests are also embossed with the 20th anniversary logo.
Guaranteeing its exclusivity, only 40 units of the Mazda6 20th Anniversary Edition will be made available in the Philippines—20 units in Rhodium White Premium and 20 units in Artisan Red Premium.
Across the new Mazda6 range, updates to the electric power steering provide more tactile feedback at medium and high speeds.
The improved dynamic performance is complimented by the 2.5-liter Skyactiv-G engine. Offering a balance between performance and refinement, it now delivers 190 PS at 6,000 rpm and 252 Nm at 4,000 rpm. The new Mazda6 also has cylinder deactivation for improved fuel efficiency. Depending on engine load, it automatically switches between four- and two-cylinder modes at no cost to performance.
Emphasizing Mazda’s commitment to offering the highest levels of vehicle safety, the new Mazda6 comes standard with Mazda Radar Cruise Control, Smart Brake Support, Front and Rear Smart City Brake Support, and Driver Attention Alert. These features are on top of the i-ACTIVSENSE features already previously equipped: Adaptive LED Headlights, Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist, Blind Spot Monitoring, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. This makes it the safest Mazda6 ever.
The new Mazda6 now boasts of black Nappa leather seats with front seat ventilation and black Leganu suede interior inserts. It has high levels of appointment as well with a 10-way power driver’s seat with memory, 6-way power front passenger’s seat, dual-zone climate control, an 11-speaker BOSE® sound system, and an electric sunroof. Improved connectivity is delivered through Android Auto, wireless Apple CarPlay, and wireless charging.
“Since its introduction in the Philippines, the Mazda6 has captivated driving enthusiasts with its blend of style and dynamics. Up to now, it retains a loyal following, and the 20th Anniversary Edition is a special nod to those customers who share our passion for driving,” says Steven Tan, President of Mazda Philippines.
