The special 6 is based on the TS model, but adds a sports grille, 17-inch gunmetal alloy wheels and privacy glass, while Dolphin Grey Mica paint is available exclusively to the Venture Edition.
Inside, there’s a TomTom satellite-navigation system, an integrated Bluetooth system, plus heated front seats with part-leather trim.
As it's based on the TS model, the Venture Edition also gets front, side and curtain airbags, parking sensors front and rear, auto wipers, a leather multifunction steering wheel and a six-speaker stereo with six-disc CD changer and Aux jack.
Only 257 Venture Edition models will be made, and it will be offered in either hatch or estate bodystyles. Two engines are available: a 161bhp 2.2-litre diesel which returns 53.5mpg and 140g/km of CO2, or a 153bhp 2.0-litre petrol engine returning 40.9mpg and 159g/km of CO2.
The Mazda 6 Venture Edition is on sale now from £21,000, with prices ranging from £340 to £480 over the equivalent TS model.
