People planning on buying a car in 2009 will be able to pick up a Mazda6 for less than £15,000, it has been revealed.
The manufacturer announced the entry-level version of the vehicle – which goes on sale in the UK in January – would be available for £14,891 on the road.
Commenting on the 26-strong line-up, Mazda pointed out changes to the range would include the introduction of the new MZR-CD 2.2-litre turbo diesel engine with a choice of three power output options, a number of specification upgrades and an extra diesel car.
The manufacturer also revealed 15 models – from the £17,563 TS2 upwards – will feature its lane-change rear vehicle monitoring system.
Capable of detecting road users approaching from behind, the device warns drivers if it is unsafe to change lanes.
Sales director Mark Cameron said: "I’m certain that with the new Mazda6 we have the right car at the right time."
Meanwhile, the updated Mazda3 is due to be launched in Europe during spring next year.
