The Mazda6 MPS, flagship model of the very successful Mazda6 range and the most powerful Mazda production sedan of all time, will be launched across Europe at the beginning of this year. It is Mazda’s entry into the growing market for high-performance sedans. In developing the new Mazda6 MPS, the primary goal was to create a vehicle that takes Mazda Zoom-Zoom to a new level for spirited dynamic performance. And in this Mazda has succeeded. With its turbocharged MZR 2.3 DISI* petrol engine, Active Torque Split All-Wheel Drive and a chassis optimized for the increases in power and torque, the Mazda6 MPS is Zoom-Zoom driving enjoyment at its very best.

Petrol direct-injection and turbocharging are the primary power sources for the new four-cylinder engine from Mazda’s MZR family of petrol powerplants. It produces a maximum of 260 Hp at 5,500 rpm and maximum torque of 280 lbs-ft is available from as low as 3,000 rpm. As a result, the Mazda6 MPS accelerates from 0 to 60 miles in just 6.6 seconds with a top speed of 149 mph, making it one of the fastest sedans in the segment, and couples this with a combined fuel consumption of 2.69 galons per 62 miles. A newly-developed six-speed manual transmission makes the MPS driving experience even more enjoyable. Its compact, three-shaft design has a wider gear ratio setting, which allows the driver to exploit the engine’s power to the fullest.
Depending on road surface and driving situation, Mazda6 MPS’s Active Torque Split All-Wheel Drive system applies up to 50 percent of engine power to the rear wheels. Using information about steering angle, yaw rate, lateral G-force and engine status, an electronically controlled active torque coupling mounted in front of the rear differential distributes power between the front and rear axles for just the right amount of torque in every driving situation. The system uses three different all-wheel drive protocols, chosen automatically by the car’s engine control module so the driver can concentrate on the road ahead: “Normal,” “Sport” and “Stability” for slippery driving surfaces like snow.
Local reinforcements to the body shell were made at sub-assembly level to deliver a stiffer body and chassis to handle the increase in power output of the new Mazda6 MPS. These new features resulted in a 50 percent increase in torsional stiffness compared to the standard four-door Mazda6 sedan. Besides giving the car a more rigid body, the engineers of the motor sports division Mazdaspeed tuned the chassis to be sportier without sacrificing Mazda6’s already high levels of ride comfort. A double-wishbone front suspension system and a multi-link rear suspension are employed. Both are equipped with stronger dampers, coil springs with higher spring rates and thicker stabilizer bars. In addition, the brake system has been enhanced with larger front and rear disc brakes installed in large 18-inch wheels with a unique design.

The exterior design is now sharper and even sportier, while the cabin is more comfortable with even higher levels of craftsmanship. Mechanically, the V6 engine is more tractable and economical, while a new five-speed automatic transmission on the four-cylinder imodel delivers better performance and gas mileage. Suspension is retuned for even more dynamic handling, while new larger 18-inch wheels, for improved handling and road holding, are offered as well.
The MAZDA 6 is available in three body styles: Sports Sedan, Sport Wagon and 5-Door. It’s the most extensive line-up in the mid-size category and all three body styles benefit from the 2006 upgrades.
“The freshening and mechanical improvements will further improve the customer’s perception of style and quality,” says Eiji Oyama, MAZDA 6 vehicle line manager for Mazda North American Operations. “The MAZDA 6 ’s unique competitive advantage is its sports-sedan position, and updates for 2006 further emphasize that advantage over the competition. Thanks to three different body styles, and the availability of four-cylinder and V6 engines, manual or automatic transmissions, the car that delivers the sportiest driving experience in its sector is even more desirable.”
The MAZDA 6 set new standards for performance, driver appeal and styling when it was launched three years ago. As a vehicle that married sports performance with refinement and practicality, it has proved a huge sales success and picked up more than 70 awards for automotive excellence.
There are two MAZDA 6 models: the four-cylinder i version and the V6-powered s. Each is available in one of four different packages: entry-level, Sport, Grand Touring and - new for 2006 - Grand Sport. Another new model for 2006 is the entry-level V6-powered s, giving value-conscious buyers the opportunity to drive Mazda’s superb V6 engine at the most affordable price ever.
Also new for 2006 is a top-of-the-line MAZDASPEED 6 sedan powered by a turbocharged 274-horsepower four-cylinder engine offering all-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission. (See separate release.)
No other manufacturer offers a more complete lineup of luxury and performance sedans, sport wagons and five-door models in the midsize class.
A GREAT LOOKING CAR NOW LOOKS EVEN SPORTIER
Customers loved the look of the 2005 MAZDA 6 , so Mazda designers were cautious about making too many changes.
The familiar pointed nose and sharp styling has been accented with a new sport grille on some models and angular new headlamps across the range. The headlamps on the Sport and Grand Sport packages use dark gray bezels. New for 2006 on MAZDA 6s Grand Sport package are High Intensity Discharge (HID) lamps for superior illumination and lower maintenance. The front bumper also is new, and helps give even more edge to the styling. Foglamps are incorporated into the front spoiler. New side sills highlight the “hug-the-road” quality of the MAZDA 6 ’s style, while a trunk spoiler is standard on Sport and Grand Sport versions.
Revised tail lamps - using black bezels on the Sport and Grand Sport - and a new rear bumper on all models underline the sports-oriented changes. For the first time on a MAZDA 6 , 18-inch wheels are now available on the s Grand Touring and Grand Sport packages, further improving the sporty appearance and also improving traction and road holding.
With the 2006 model year also come three new exterior colors: Dark Cherry, Bright Island Blue and Tungsten Gray.
IMPROVED PERFORMANCE ACROSS THE SERIES
The range-topping 3.0-liter V6 engine has been noted for its strong performance and refinement, and now gets a torque boost from 190 to 199 lb-ft (at 5,000 rpm). The change makes the engine even more tractable and the car easier to drive, and also will improve off- the-line performance. In addition, fuel economy is improved by one mile per gallon on both manual and automatic vehicles. Because of changes to the exhaust system to boost torque, maximum horsepower is reduced slightly from 220 horsepower to 215 horsepower (at 6,000 rpm).
As before, the V6 is mated to either a five-speed manual gearbox or six-speed Sport A/T automatic with manual shift. The MAZDA 6 is in the only vehicle in the class to be offered with a six-speed automatic transmission. The wide number of ratios improves performance, drivability, smoothness and gas mileage. The tall top gear also improves comfort and quietness on the freeway, while a short first gear gives aggressive off-the-line performance. These are all examples of MAZDA 6 ’s sports-first philosophy.
The 2.3-liter four-cylinder (I-4) engine used on the MAZDA 6i models continues as before, producing 160 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 155 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm. This highly sophisticated engine is all-aluminum (like the V6 engine), uses double overhead camshafts and 16 valves (for excellent engine breathing and smooth revving). Smoothness and refinement are enhanced by the use of a balance shaft, helping make this four-cylinder engine almost as smooth as a reliable six-cylinder unit.
The 2.3-liter engine is specified with Partial Zero Emission Vehicle (PZEV) equipment in the four states that require California emissions (NH, Mass., NY and VT). This makes the 2.3-liter engine 90-percent cleaner than the average new car. Evaporative emissions are completely eliminated by re-engineering the exhaust plumbing, repositioning the first catalytic converter and eco-friendly Electronic Control Unit (ECU) programming.
For 2006, i models are available with a new five-speed Sport AT automatic transmission with manual shift mode, replacing the previous four-speed unit. The extra gear ratio improves acceleration, cruising refinement and fuel economy (24 mpg city, 32 mpg highway - which is 1 mpg and 4 mpg respectively better than the 2005 model). Of course the MAZDA 6 i also is available with a five-speed manual gearbox.
Other improvements for the MAZDA 6 for 2006 include bigger ventilated front disc brakes - up from 11.1 inches to 11.8 inches - to further cut stopping distances, resist brake fade and improve pedal feel. Solid 11.0 inch disc brakes are used at the rear. As before, anti-lock brakes (ABS) are standard - to cut stopping distances, allow drivers to steer when braking hard, and to stop skids. Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) automatically balances front-to-rear braking forces, irrespective of the vehicle’s load. Electronic traction control, which minimizes wheel spin in poor weather or slippery conditions, is standard across the range.
Secondary safety features include Triple-H body construction, which gives superb strength to the unitary construction body, front and rear side door beams, three-point seat belts for all five occupants, dual front airbags, and front and rear whiplash-reducing head restraints. Side airbags and side-curtain bags are standard on all models apart from the entry level iversion, on which they’re optional.
The keyless entry has remote locking/unlocking, automatic opening and closing of the front windows (a new feature for 2006), a trunk release and a panic button.
"Triangle" could not withstand even the volley of my two purple spheres, soundlessly swelling with domes of explosions, crushing the gigantic ships from inside and. Outside, killing all life on board. But I no longer even looked in that direction - the detonation of the ammunition load would complete the rest. At that moment my eyes were attracted by an inconspicuous point in space.
Endless, but such an alluring darkness.

For some reason, grandmothers like to call bitches girls, and males boys, and Vovka decided to support the old woman in. This delusion. But the word "bitch", in his opinion, sounded much more weighty.
