The Mazda Motor Corporation has just unveiled more details about the 2021 Mazda6 and its Carbon Edition. The limited-edition variant brings with it an exclusive Polymetal Gray paint job along with blacked-out trim and black metallic finish for its wheels. On the inside, the vehicle also gets a red leather interior, with black accents present in the cabin. The new trim will officially go on sale in the United States later this September.
Under the hood of the Carbon Edition Mazda6 is a 2.5-liter Skyactiv-G turbo engine. The motor makes 250 hp and 434 Nm of torque on premium gasoline. While the horsepower numbers remain the same, torque has increased by 14 Nm over the previous year. Accompanying the limited edition color is a new “Turbo” badge on the trunk giving the variant a distinct look to help separate it from the rest of the normal variants.
While the turbo motor is definitely the one to get the Carbon Edition Mazda6 can also be had with a naturally aspirated gasoline engine. Similar in displacement to the turbo motor the 2.5-liter Skyactiv-G produces 187hp and 252 Nm of torque. While it has significantly less power than the turbo engine, it still has more than enough grunt to get the vehicle going.
Aside from the limited edition interior red and black color scheme, all trims of the 2021 Mazda6, at least in the US, will now get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities as standard. The Grand Touring and higher variants of the vehicle will also be getting wireless CarPlay as well.
The new Carbon Edition will be slotting in between the Grand Touring Reserve grade trim-level and the range-topping Signature variant. Prices have yet to be revealed for the US market and there is no official news yet if the limited edition trim will be available in wagon form. Mazda Philippines has yet to release any information with regards to it bringing in the Carbon Edition models into the country.
