Luxury coupe will arrive by 2016.
Thoughthis used to be standard operating procedure for most Japanese manufacturers, it'sbeen a long time since Mazda offered a large sedan-based two-door coupe model. Butnow, it seems that the company wants to go back to the good ol' days, whenfamily sedans were easily chopped into sporty coupes, losing two doors andgaining some sportiness and sex appeal. According to Auto Express, the 6 Coupewill launch in 2016 with the ambitious objective of taking on rivals like theBMW 4 Series.
Joiningthe sedan and wagon (which is not offered in the US), the 6 Coupe will featurea similar design language, but will be differentiated by a low hood-line, distinctivestyling and a "racier" look. The 6 Coupe will sit lower to theground, and receive a sleek roofline. Some speculations suggest that it coulddraw its design inspiration from Mazda's 2010 Shinari concept.
