The first official photos of the revamped Mazda6 have been released.  The revised Mazda 6 will go on sale in the UK early next year priced from £19,795 to £28,795.

Exterior changes include a re-profiled front end with a new grille and signature wing design, plus new LED headlights, LED fog lights and LED tail-lights on Sport Nav models.

Sport Nav models also now receive a new adaptive headlight system that allows the high beam pattern to adjust automatically to prevent dazzling oncoming traffic.

The bulk of the changes are reserved for the cabin, which has been revised to echo that of the rest of the Mazda range.

That means a new high-resolution touch-screen in the centre stack for the MZD Connect system that now also incorporates DAB digital radio for the first time.

The instruments are also new, the Multimedia Commander controller has been revised to include a dedicated volume control, and there’s a new electronic parking brake on some models.

A head-up display, first seen on the Mazda 3, also makes it onto the Mazda 6.

Under the skin, changes include improved sound insulation and a revised suspension set-up.

New safety systems include an enhanced Lane-keep Assist System that now vibrates the steering wheel if the driver strays out of lane, while a Driver Alert system operates at speeds over 40mph to warn the driver to take a break if it detects driver fatigue.

The Blind-Sport Monitoring System now features a larger detection area, while the Rear Cross-Traffic Alert system can now detect pedestrians and cyclists.

Meanwhile, a new system, Rear Smart City Brake Support, operates at speeds between two and 5mph in reverse and can automatically apply the brakes if detects an impact is imminent.

Five grades will be available – SE, SE Nav, SE-L, SE-L Nav and Sport Nav – and the company says each has had standard equipment levels increased.

Two 2.0-litre petrol engines are offered with outputs of 145 or 165PS, plus two 2.2-litre diesels with either 150PS or 175PS.

The 2015 Mazda 6 goes on sale early next year priced from £19,795 in a choice of saloon or Tourer body styles.
