The Mazda 6 Sedan (GJ) is the third generation sedan model of the Mazda 6 midsize family car. It was introduced in 2013.
The Mazda 6 (known as the Mazda Atenza in China and Japan) is a large family car produced by the Japanese car manufacturer Mazda since 2002. It replaced the long-serving Mazda Capella (616, 626) in 2002. The Mazda 6 has sold over one million units worldwide since its introduction, hitting this sales milestone faster than all previous Mazdas.
The Mazda 6 was the first example of the company's new Stylish, Insightful, and Spirited design philosophy followed by the Mazda 2 in December 2002, the RX-8 in August 2003, the Mazda 3 in January 2004, the Mazda 5 in the summer of 2005, the MX-5 in October 2005, and the Mazda CX-7 in November 2006.
The third generation Mazda 6 was unveiled during Moscow International Motor Show in late August 2012. In this generation, there are only 4-door sedan and 5-door station wagon versions available.
Its design has been extremely well-received, and was a finalist in the "2013 World Design Of The Year".
The Japanese models Mazda Atenza went on sale from 2012-11-01. Early models include 20S (sedan/wagon), 25S (sedan/wagon), XD (sedan/wagon), XD L-package (sedan/wagon).
For 2014, the changes include SCBS (smart city brake support) become standard for the Atenza 20S and XD, increased efficiency for SKYACTIV-G 2.5 engine models to 16.0 km/L (JC08 mode), new slide glass sunroof option for SKYACTIV-D 2.2 engine models, addition of XD L-package (6-speed manual transmission, leather seats), Bose 11-speaker sound system with Centerpoint 2 surround sound become standard in XD L-package models, addition of deep crystal blue mica body colour to total of 7 body colour options.
The Mazda 6 has an unusually quick acceleration given its engine output and weight; this may be due to the game exaggerating the acceleration stat for the Mazda 6; in-game, it is now 3.20 s instead of 7.60. The Mazda 6's advantage over most Class D cars is its high top speed stat, even higher than the SUBARU IMPREZA WRX STI. Surprisingly, the Mazda 6 handles well for its vehicle class as it is capable of handling difficult curves like the infamous ending curve in Sector 8 without hitting a wall. The biggest downfall of the Mazda 6 is its poor nitro efficiency, which is a forced 10/15/20, just like with the BMW M3 Sedan. While the Mazda 6 can perform well on short tracks against similar cars, its performance is lowered on long tracks like Tokyo and Azure Coast.
While the Mazda 6's low rank can allow the car to be tuned for low rank Multiplayer races, it should be noted that it will not be the best car for Multiplayer, because much like the Volkswagen Beetle Turbo and the SUBARU IMPREZA WRX STI, its poor nitro efficiency will cause it to face stiff competition from the Renault DeZir and Range Rover Evoque Coupe HSE Dynamic. The Mazda 6 only works between ranks 850~1050.
The Mazda 6 originally was priced at 270,000 or 1,475 for purchase, but as of the Car Blueprints Update, it must be unlocked via the Car Assembly System, requiring 20 of its blueprints. It costs 1,701,760 or 9,865 to max out. Owning the car counts towards the Japanese Dragons collection.
