Mazda 6 Wagon (2011)
Saturday, July 17th 2010
Like the outgoing model, the new 2011 Mazda 6 Wagon is the facelifted version which is roomy and functional. The car has a host of small storage compartments and a large and flexible floor console between the front seats. To this the car adds a new storage compartment near the driver’s seat. The ashtray has been replaced by a box large enough for small items such as cards and the keyless entry and start system’s controller.
For the High and Mid-Power versions, engineers reduced the outlet diameter of the turbocharger’s turbine impeller from 41.5 mm to 36 mm, which reduces turbine inertia by 24 percent and increases torque. As a result, the High-Power version provides substantially improved sixth-gear acceleration from 80 to 120 km/h. The Mid-Power version now has 10 Nm more torque where it is most needed — in the 1,400-1,600 rpm range — for an exciting acceleration feel.
The Mazda 6 facelift Standard-Power diesel offers a great combination of lively power and low fuel consumption. To achieve this, torque was increased by reducing the outlet diameter of the turbocharger’s turbine impeller even further (from 41.5 mm to 32 mm), thereby reducing turbine inertia by approximately 51%, and by reducing the outer diameter of the compressor impeller itself from 57 mm to 47 mm, thereby increasing torque by 30 Nm in the 1,400 rpm to 2,400 rpm range.
This delivers high torque at low- and mid-range engine speeds, and great engine response. The Standard- Power version of 2011 Mazda 6 Wagon produces 95 kW/129 PS of maximum output at 3,500 rpm and 340 Nm of maximum torque while using only 5.2 liters of fuel per 100 km.
