Inside, the Mazda 6 20th Anniversary special offers a unique tan interior trimmed in Leganu suede and Nappa leather. The front headrests are also embossed with 20th anniversary logos.

Under the bonnet is the Skyactiv-G 2.5-litre turbo petrol engine, now developing 173 kW (up 3 kW) at 4250 rpm for 2023. Maximum torque remains at 420 Nm (2000 rpm), but Mazda says the engine will produce an extra 8 Nm at 4250 rpm compared to before.

According to Mazda, the six-speed automatic has also been updated to “provide a more direct upshift response and a more exciting driving experience”; while “accelerator pedal reaction force has been increased for a more direct and intuitive connection to the engine’s torque”.

For the wider range, the 2023 model year will bring an updated power steering system.
