A new coupe variant would act as a halo car for the brand, and would be the third body style for the Mazda 6, joining the wagon and the sedan.
When asked about a new Mazdaspeed 6, program manager Hiroshi Kajiyama said, “there is a high potential for this, and it would be helpful to the brand.” Currently, the most powerful engine Mazda offers is a 2.2-litre turbodiesel in the Sport model of the 6 that makes 173 hp. A Mazdaspeed variant could use a tuned up version of that engine, or a new engine all together.
