In Japan, the Mazda6 is known as the Atenza (a much cooler name if you ask us) and it is through this car that we’re getting a sneak peak at the new face of the 2016 Mazda6.
On the French car forum WorldScoop, someone posted some photographs from an Atenza sales handbook. The pictures of a picture (we’re getting a little inception-y here) show both the interior and exterior. Inside it seems the new Mazda6 will get an updated instrument panel and a standalone infotainment screen (similar to the Mazda3).
If this new system works like the Mazda3’s does, it will be a welcome change to the Mazda6’s current system and will bring the larger sedan up to speed with the rest of the Mazda lineup.
Outside, it appears the Mazda6’s front end will gain some new bodywork on the lower body and minor tweaks to the swept-back headlamps.
We won’t have to wait long to get a real look at these updates, as the 2016 Mazda6 is expected to make its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show later this month along with the all-new CX-3 and updated CX-5.
While we wait for the debut of the next generations, you can still come to Parks Mazda and see all of the award winning Mazda’s on our lot!
