2017 Mazda6 Coupe Rumors — Stylish Performance Coupe
The automaker has prepared a really interesting surprise — a coupe version of the upcoming hybrid powertrain. Of course, the rumors about the coupe’s powertrain aren’t very reliable, so we have to be cautious with conclusions. However, there’s no doubt that the 2017 Mazda6 Coupe will be a good-looking very efficient car which is expected to attract the people who are eager to own an elegant, modern and powerful sporty coupe.
2017 Mazda6 Coupe Appearance And Style
The exterior of the 2017 Mazda6 Coupe will be, of course, heavily based on the 2016 Mazda6 sedan. With similar lines and the same DNA, the coupe could look like a two-door iteration of the sedan, but thanks to the fact that the automaker found inspiration for the coupe in some other models, too, the car will have some styling cues borrowed from the Shinari Concept as well as the new Mazda MX-5 Miata. Needless to say, its Kodo design language will bring a dynamic and aggressive appearance. Sculpted with smooth curves and sharp lines, the body of the 2017 Mazda6 Coupe is probably going to be more attractive than the sedan. There’s no doubt that the coupe will have the recognizable brand’s grille and a big front bumper. However, the coupe’s hood, roofline and overall body length will make it very distinctive.
Possible Powertrain Options
As we mentioned earlier, the exact powertrain of the 2017 Mazda6 Coupe isn’t known yet. The speculations claim that there will be a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers approximately 320 horsepower. If they decide to go with this engine, the 2017 Mazda6 Coupe will come with amazing performance. Another powertrain option could be a diesel-electric hybrid setup. This hybrid powertrain has great autonomy, so don’t be surprised if the 2017 Mazda6 Coupe Hybrid comes with 30 miles all-electric range. Bear in mind that there’s still a lot of time until the official release of the 2017 Mazda6 Coupe, so a lot of it can be changed meanwhile. What seems to be certain, according to various sources, is that the 2017 Mazda6 Coupe will have standard all-wheel drive.
2017 Mazda6 Coupe Release
The 2017 Mazda6 Coupe will be released after its sedan sibling, but not immediately. They will probably wait a little bit and introduce the coupe next year, but the first production units could hit the showrooms sometime during 2016. If you like what’s expected of the 2017 Mazda6 Coupe, perhaps it would be a good idea to wait for its release.
