The all-new Mazda6 midsize sedan debuted in Moscow this week looking much like the Takeri concept seen at several auto shows and now the company’s first commercial is showing the car in motion.

In the footage, you see the new sedan rushing across a salt flat while two cellists play a rendition of “All Day and All of the Night,” by The Kinks. The video also has a wireframe rundown of the car’s SkyActiv engine.

It still isn’t clear which engines will make it to the North American version of the car, but each will feature Mazda’s SkyActiv technology. Hopefully, the SkyActiv-D diesel engine will be made available as it was shown in the Takeri concept the Mazda6 is based on.
