Please read below to find out what makes this car so unique and rare. I believe the Mazdaspeed 6 is the highest-performing, best-handling sedan Mazda has ever built.
Starting with the basic Mazda 6 structure--a unibody with good rigidity credentials--Mazda added a cross brace behind the rear seats and a hefty cross-body beam under the dash, heavied up the mounting points for the front and rear suspension subframes, and beefed the A-pillar anchor points. The net of the foregoing, according to Mazda, is a 50-percent gain in torsional rigidity.
As you'd expect, the suspension--unequal-length control arms in front, a multilink rear--has been stiffened, with higher spring rates, firmer shock damping (monotube at the rear), harder bushings, and heftier anti-roll bars fore-and-aft. Heftier also applies to the brakes, which spin behind 7.0-by-18-inch alloy wheels (versus 7.0-by-17 on the Mazda 6 s).
Power is supplied by a revised Mazda MZR 2.3-liter DOHC 16-valve four, said revisions including a block cast from higher-density aluminum alloy; a reduced compression ratio (9.5:1 versus 9.7:1); a steel crankshaft with enlarged crankpins; direct (versus port) fuel injection, a first for a U.S. Mazda; and a Hitachi turbocharger compressing the air-fuel mixture to the tune of 15.6 psi via an air-to-air intercooler mounted squarely atop the engine.
Aisin six-speed manual gearbox to Mazda's equally new Active Torque Split All-Wheel Drive. It's a computer-automated system, delivering up to 50 percent of the engine's power to the rear wheels contingent on variables such as wheelspin, yaw, and steering angle, with a limited-slip diff up front and an electric clutch at the rear. There's no center diff. The system has three operating modes--normal, sport, and snow--but unfortunately, the computer decides which is appropriate for conditions and driving style. There is no manual preselects.
Cosmetic distinctions are subtle. The most visible, aside from the wheel design, is the hoodline, which has been raised 1.8 inches to accommodate the intercooler. The grille is a little bigger, with an opening above its central trim bar to gulp intercooler air. The rear spoiler is less visible than the rear wing on the 6 s. The front fenders and the bumper fascia are also new, as are the slightly deeper rocker extensions. Interior has dark trim on the center stack, a higher-grade leather wrap for the steering wheel, rear-seat headrests.
