Mazda’s new sedan, the Mazda6, promises to keep going from where the successful old model left off. With its combination of newly-found refinement and power, it’s sure to win over a slew of new consumers. Now, Mazda has finally released the official pricing scheme for this new model.
The 2009 Mazda6 sports sedan will start at $18,550, equipped with a 170-horsepower, 2.5-liter, I-4 engine and a six-speed manual transmission. Pricing for the 2009 Mazda6 S, powered by a 273-horsepower, V6 engine and six-speed Sport AT automatic transmission begins at $24,130. Destination charges for all 2009 model-year Mazda vehicles are $670 and $715 in Alaska.
The 2009 Mazda6 will be available as a four-door sedan and in four trim levels: SV (I-4 models only), Sport, Touring and Grand Touring, and with varying levels of standard and optional equipment. All models will come with these features as standard equipment: air-conditioning, power windows, mirrors and door locks, anti-lock brakes (ABS), dynamic stability control, traction control, frontal and seat-mounted airbags for driver and front passenger, side air-curtain airbags for front and rear seat passengers and a tire-pressure monitoring system.
Jim O’Sullivan, president and CEO of Mazda North American Operations (MNAO) says, “this is the most important new vehicle Mazda has launched in a decade. Bringing any new car to market at a competitive price has always been critical, but seldom more-so than today. Customers are looking for that rare combination of style, dynamics, economy and a great price, and the all-new 2009 Mazda6 delivers on all levels.”
The 2009 Mazda6 arrived at dealers across the country in August. All the cars are sold and badged as 2009 models.
