Mazda is banking on attractive styling, greater refinement and increased practicality to give the latest version of its family estate added appeal. In its new guise, the load-carrying version of the popular Mazda6 model mixes sporty lines with premium trim, yet also provides more load space. As an added convenience, it comes with a novel tonneau cover that operates automatically The nine-strong range carries a smaller premium than is usually charged over hatchback bodywork and comes with the choice of four trim levels.

Under the bonnet is a choice of two-litre and 2.5-litre petrol and two-litre diesel engines.
