Introduced in 2006, the MAZDASPEED 6 is the fastest accelerating, best handling and most advanced sport sedan Mazda has ever built. The heart of the MAZDASPEED 6 is the MZR 2.3 DISI (Direct Injection Spark Ignition) Turbo engine. Turbocharged and intercooled, the 2.3L aluminum I-4 engine produces 274 horsepower. Taking advantage of the inherent cooling and efficiency of direct gasoline injection, Mazda applied a fast-spooling single-scroll turbo to supply up to 15 psi of boost, resulting in 280 lb-ft torque at only 3000 rpm.

To accommodate the powerful engine, an Active Torque-Split All-Wheel Drive system is utilized, capable of delivering up to 50 percent of the power to the rear wheels. From the outside, the MAZDASPEED 6 is easily distinguished from MAZDA 6 sedans due to extensive use of unique body panels, including front fenders, front and rear fascias, hood, grille, rear spoiler and side sills.

Once inside the cockpit, drivers will find exclusive sport bucket front seats, a standard BOSE ® audio system, scuff plates with stainless-steel inserts and aluminum pedals. The MAZDASPEED 6 also features an available Advanced Keyless Entry and Start System that allows vehicle entry and ignition without handling the key fob.

Completely new for 2006, there are no significant changes made to the 2007 MAZDASPEED 6.
