In recent years, rumors about Mazda have often focused on two things – the return of rotary engines and the launch of in-line six-cylinder units. None of these “secrets” are obviously kept well enough, because we know that Wankel generators will return in early 2022. However, the start of production of regular “sixes” has been shrouded in mystery, until now. According to the latest report from Japan, the production of this engine will also start at the beginning of next year.
As they write Hot Tires, the report cites Mazda-related components as the source. According to them, production of the vehicles in question will begin at the factory in Hof Yamaguchi Prefecture, in early 2022. Rumors continue to point out that the unit in question will be available in petrol, diesel and Skyactiv-X variants. The beginning of 2022 is indicative because it is considered that new units will not arrive until new models of rear-wheel drive cars are ready.
The Japanese manufacturer is working on the development of large and small production categories, according to the report, with the fact that large products include SUV models. The two will succeed the Mazda CX-5 and CX-8. According to a report from November, the next generation of the CX-5 will go into premium water, where it will compete with Mercedes and BMW chickens, and will also get a new name – CX-50. It will be offered with new six-cylinder engines with a displacement of 3.0 and 3.3 liters.
Mazda is a small manufacturer within the automotive industry that is going through rapid changes. Sales have remained consistent over the past decade, with 0.2 percent better in 2020 than in 2019. However, the fact is that the competition will only be tougher, and it is best for Mazda to try to position itself appropriately for that. “New reality”. The introduction of in-line six-cylinder engines goes hand in hand with a shift to rear-wheel drive to achieve better driving dynamics. It is not known when exactly we will see Mazda’s new models, although rumors are circulating that there will be no new products until 2022.
