Mazda - 6 MPS Concept

Original name: マツダ 6 MPS コンセプト

 


 

Mazda6 MPS Concept

Sophisticated athletic design and functional, high-quality interior

To reflect an atmosphere of sporty sophistication combined with powerful dynamism, the front of the car bears a new version of the five-pointed grill as well as an air intake design similar to the one featured on the RX-8. Much more than a bold design statement, the enlarged front bumper and the rear spoiler both play an aerodynamic role in enhancing the overall appearance of the concept car, whilst also improving its dynamic stability. The sportiness of the car's body is emphasized by a new type of paintwork called "Silver Storm" to create a high quality feel with its subtle shine.

The interior has been designed with specific attention to material quality, having "genuineness" as its theme. Based on black, the speedometer combines deep blue and a metallic texture to express "functional beauty." The high quality leather seats in a fashionable black and white color combination give it an elegant flair. To improve convenience and to add to that sporty feel, the Mazda6 MPS comes with a keyless entry system and a simple button with which to start the engine.

Dynamic performance that provides a feeling of genuine high performance

The newly developed direct-injection turbo-charged 2.3-liter engine has achieved low emissions, excellent fuel efficiency, and high performance. Its total output of 206kW(280ps) at 6,500rpm and maximum torque of 360 Nm at 3,500 rpm qualifies the Mazda6 MPS concept car as a serious driving machine, while at the same time the engine meets all relevant low emission regulations. In Europe, the Euro IV levels are met; in the USA and Japan the respective ULEV standards are fulfilled.

An all-new traction system is employed, effortlessly transmitting the power of Mazda6 MPS concept car onto the road. The 4WD used in the Mazda6 is combined here with an active torque control. The result is an electronically controlled torque-split 4WD system that is suitable for high performance cars and gives precise tire-to-road contact even at high revs.
