It may just make it in time for the next facelift.
Afew months ago, we told you that Mazda had once again pushed back the Americandebut of the Mazda6 diesel, claiming it wanted to make the oil burner perfect for ourmarket by offering a combination of low emissions and the "Mazda zoom-zoomcharacter." Now, it seems the company has been forced to fit the SkyActivdiesel earmarked for this model with an additional after-treatment emissionssystem to make it compliant with federal standards.
Originally planned to launch in the fall of last year, the Mazda6 dieselis still at least a year away. This means that it will likely miss the currentmodel altogether, and, hopefully, make it to market along with the refreshplanned for the 2016 Mazda6.
