New GT SP model highlights updated Mazda6 range for 2021

By January 14, 2021 Manufacturers

Mazda Australia has announced key updates to the stylish Mazda6 Sedan and Wagon ranges for 2021.

Featuring the turbocharged 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, the new GT SP Sedan and Wagon take the previous GT line a step further.

Two efficient, powerful petrol engines are available for the Mazda6. Sport and Touring Sedans and Wagons feature the renowned 2.5-litre four-cylinder Skyactiv-G petrol engine, powering the front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission. 

Both GT SP and Atenza variants utilise a turbocharged 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine to generate an impressive 170kW power peak at 5,000rpm, backed up by a strong 420Nm torque figure produced at only 2,000rpm.

Impressively, the turbocharged engine can also run on 91-octane unleaded, and records 7.6L/100km fuel consumption on the combined cycle.

On the safety front the Mazda6 range features a five-star ANCAP safety rating, ensuring Mazda continues to put safety first with a wide range of passive and active safety features.

Key range-wide safety technologies include Smart City Brake Support with Pedestrian Recognition, Lane Departure Warning, Lane-Keep Assist System and Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go function. Front airbags for driver and front passenger combine with front Side and front/rear Curtain airbags for further peace of mind.

“As our passenger car flagship, Mazda6 holds strong appeal in its segment with its advanced specification and option of Sedan and Wagon body styles,” said Mazda Australia Managing Director, Vinesh Bhindi.

“This latest update is highlighted by the new GT SP model, which brings a distinctly sporty characteristic to the Mazda6 range and builds on the local GT SP portfolio alongside the CX-9,” he said.
