Now that the new generation Mazda6 has officially hit the streets, it’s time to switch focus to the next great thing to come out of Mazda. According to AutoExpress, the Japanese company is considering a performance version of their brand new sedan - something in the spirit of the company’s MPS models.

The announcement was made by Hiroshi Kajiyama, program manager for the car, who said that such a model is being looked at: "There is a high potential for this, and it would be helpful to the brand." He also said that the new version could be even lighter than the standard Mazda6, which is already 110 lbs lighter than the previous generation. As for the engines to be used for the MPS version, turbocharged versions of both petrol and diesel engines are being considered.

The new Mazda6 targets models like the Audi A4 and the BMW 3-Series, making their performance versions the primary targets for the Mazdaspeed6. If built, the future Mazdaspeed 6 will arrive on the market sometime in 2014.

Having it lighter than the standard Mazda 6 only means that this is more promising to give our desired performances.

It really has a performance of a good car, but I’m more interested on its cabin and the components they have.

I’m fond on every model car that uses the same red exterior. They want to make it sportier, but it’s not based on the colors. It’s on the appearance and components.

The looks are very intriguing. What more will I see on its interior.

I am still a fan of the classic Mazda 6. I love the way the car is built. The looks and handling performance were all great.
