 Good Evening, Ladies and Gentlemen!!
It is indeed an honor and privilege for me to welcome all of you again after the launch of CX9 with another brand new Mazda.
We are a 77 year old company and are proud of our 44 year association with Mazda Motor Corporation, Japan.
Let me tell you a story today about a car company based in Hiroshima, a city whose people rose from the ashes nearly 70 years ago.The heart of Mazda is in Hiroshima. Mazda is a 93-year-old car company that thrived over the years due to the passion of its engineers, to always build the best.

Everyone associated with this brand, including ourselves, shares the desire to be the best. They maybe a small company but will not be outdone by bigger companies.
40 Years ago they were the only car company to succeed in commercializing rotary engines.
Everyone at Mazda, deep in their hearts, has a romance with building cars and a romance with engineering.
Their Engineers do not think about limitations, they defy convention and dare to challenge.
That spirit led to the birth of the all new Mazda6 , 2014 model, powered with the world’s best SKYACTIV engine that has hybrid-like efficiency.
The aspiration of every engineer at Mazda is combined in each car they make.
The story has just begun. Mazda’s romance with engineering will continue, to keep building cars that are worth building and fun to drive.Thank you for sparing your valuable time to be with us today.

Let’s watch more on the story of the Heart Of Mazda.



The name SKYACTIV has its origins in the term “The SKY is the limit” and it expresses the spirit that is driving Mazda engineers in their development work. They developed SKYACTIV with a belief in unlimited possibilities.




High-efficiency SKYACTIV-G direct-injection petrol engines are your passport to a world of driving that is both exciting and eco-friendly, SKYACTIV-G 2.0 engines do more than just set new standards for fuel efficiency and emissions control, they also actively enhance the Zoom-Zoom performance.  To accomplish this, Mazda engineers achieved a technical breakthrough to deliver an extraordinary compression ratio of 13.0:1 while suppressing the knock usually caused by such high compression.   Taken together, the technical breakthroughs in SKYACTIV-G engines realize an astonishing increase in fuel efficiency – up to 15% – as well as more satisfying everyday driving thanks to the ample torque available at low- to mid-engine speeds. 





The SKYACTIV-BODY is engineered to achieve two conflicting aims: lighter weight with better safety performance and increased rigidity.  It`s achieved through innovative engineering, and optimized structures and materials.  In total, SKYACTIV-BODY is 30% more rigid, lighter, and able to meet the world`s most demanding crash safety tests, at the same time as giving better handling thanks to its enhanced rigidity.




The SKYACTIV-CHASSIS delivers even more of Mazda`s famous feeling of oneness between car and driver.  Total re-engineering of the basics of suspension and steering systems achieved both lighter weight and superior rigidity.






All Mazdas are about the driving experience.  And an important part of the experience is feeling secure in knowing what`s going on around you at all times.  Mazda6 is equipped with a host of features engineered to keep you informed, and to help you anticipate and aboid hazards on the road.  Mazda call this integrated suite of of advanced active safety technologies i-ACTIVSENSE.  i-ACTIVSENSE uses the latest sensing devices to assist your perception and decision-making so you can concentrate on driving.  But no matter how safely or skillfully you drive, accidents can always happen.  So Mazda6 also includes a wide range of passive safety features to protect you and your passengers, including the AKYACTIV-BODY that meets the highest collision-safety standards of the world`s major assessment programmes.




i-ACTIVSENSE is Mazda`s integrated suite of cutting-edge active safety technologies, designed to inform, support and protect.  The Rear Vehicle Monitoring (RVM) system, High Beam Control System (HBC) and Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS) keep you informed of what`s going on around you, even in the blind spots to the side and rear.  The Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) and Forward Obstruction Warning (FOW) system support you in split-second decision-making.  Better yet, unlike some other makers` systems which rely on a single sensing system such as a camera, i-ACTIVSENSE uses a smart combination of the latest sensing devices including milliwave radar, near-infrared lasers and cameras to cover the widest range of situations and weather conditions.





Mazda6 is a concrete statement of inspired craftsmanship, with every detail – inside and out – designed and developed to heighten your driving pleasure.  From the newly-developed Soul Red Metallic body colour that captivates the eye to the advanced R&D and studies in ergonomics, Mazda6 is a triumph of craftmanship and attention to detail.
