The all-new Mazda 6 is to go on sale in January, with prices ranging from £19,595 to £28,045

The new Mazda 6 Estate has been unveiled at the Paris Motor Show – and the company has revealed that prices for the new car will start from £19,595. Mazda also claims this will be the most efficient car in its class when it goes on sale next January.

The 6 will come with a choice of either a 2.2-litre diesel or 2.0-litre petrol engine, both featuring the company's SkyActiv technology.

Both engines will also be offered with two power outputs and a choice of six-speed manual or automatic gearboxes.

The £19,595 entry-level SE-spec saloon features the 2.0-litre petrol with 143bhp and 210Nm torque. The same engine will also be available with 163bhp and 210Nm torque.

The diesel will be offered with either 148bhp and 380Nm torque or 173bhp and 420Nm torque. The lower-powered version will return 72.4mpg and emit only 104g/km CO2 when mated to a manual gearbox, which will make it the most economical car in its class.

These class-leading figures are thanks to Mazda SkyActiv technology and the introduction of its i-ELOOP stop-start and brake energy recuperation system.
