Kodo Story

BREATHING LIFE INTO DESIGN

Created to transform ordinary sheet metal into something that embodies the vitality of a living being, KODO: “Soul of Motion” is the inspiration behind the design of every Mazda vehicle. And the Mazda6 is no exception. Its simple but dynamic lines express energy and movement. Even at a standstill.

VISIBLY BETTER

To make the Mazda6 more visible to drivers ahead of you, the side mirrors feature integrated turn signals. And the tapered width of the mirrors gives it an even sleeker profile. Small details that can make a big difference. Especially in a stylish mid-size sedan.

THE WHEEL REINVENTED

When it comes to wheel design, the more flashy and dynamic, the less likely it is to perform. But when designing the Mazda6, we pushed the boundaries without compromising. In the end, more than 20 designs were tested—and rejected. The end result is a wheel that looks beautiful, while also being strong and light.

SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS WITH G-VECTORING CONTROL

Mazda’s latest technology, SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control, helps achieve a smoother, less fatiguing drive for you and your passengers. It’s a highly efficient vehicle movement control system that operates in the background during a spirited drive. When cornering, the system works seamlessly by adjusting power delivery, shifting vehicle weight on initial turn-in and throughout the corner. The effect is subtle, but how you feel after a great drive isn’t. Why go to these lengths? Because we believe no detail is too small when it comes to making driving better.
