Mazda6 Coupe in the Works as BMW 4 Series Fighter

Mazda6 Coupe in the Works as BMW 4 Series Fighter

Mazda might be mulling a two-door variant to its mid-size sedan that could help elevate it to a more premium place in the market.

According to a report by Auto Express, the Japanese automaker is planning to add a sleek two-door coupe variant of its Mazda6 meant to poach sales from cars like the BMW 4 Series. With the Mazda6 sedan and wagon doing well worldwide, Mazda is confident that it can compete with premium German brands like BMW, at least to a certain extent.

Rumor has it that the Mazda6 coupe will make its debut in 2016, sitting alongside the new MX-5 Miata. But expect a more aggressive stance compared to the traditional sedan with a sleeker roofline and a more distinct front bumper design. One only needs to look back to 2010 to get a hint at how the Mazda6 coupe will look with the company’s Shinari concept that debuted the brand’s current “KODO” design language.
