A facelift doesn't usually include new models but Mazda are giving us more to think about.

The new Mazda6 range now features four CBU variants. The 2.0L litre SkyActiv sedan, which is priced at just under RM160,000, the 2.5L SkyActiv sedan and touring which are just under RM190,000 and finally, the 2.2 litre SkyActiv diesel sedan for those who either like a different fuel choice or want to hang out at the distant pumps at the fuel stops!

The cars feature a more premium and refined exterior design and extensive interior revisions. These include new seating, boosted SKYACTIV powertrain performance, enhanced driving dynamics, greater aerodynamic efficiency, reduced NVH and an even broader range of i-ACTIVSENSE safety features.

The KAI CONCEPT and VISION COUPE are a look into the future of the Mazda brand.  Recently crowned 'Most Beautiful Concept Car of the Year', the Mazda VISION COUPE's four-door body is styled as a simple form that strips away all non-essential elements to embody a 'Less is More' aesthetic, in line with the Mazda KODO Soul of Motion design philosophy, with a particular focus on the way light plays across its surfaces.

Exclusive to Mazda, SKYACTIV-X is set to become the world's first commercial gasoline engine to use compression ignition*. This ground-breaking engine introduces an innovative combustion method called Spark Controlled Compression Ignition (SPCCI), which combines the benefits of a spark-ignition petrol engine with those of a compression diesel engine to produce a crossover engine that delivers the best of both worlds.
