Mazda Canada on Friday announced that it will no longer offer the Mazda 6 mid-size sedan, which will end in July after the end of the 2021 Model Year production run.
The decision taken in a particularly unfavorable case for the category is not surprising. In 2020, 1,049 Mazda 6s found buyers in Canada, 24,946 units of the compact CX-5 SUV, the most popular model in the family.
Mazda’s Canadian branch said in a statement that “this change to crossovers provides an opportunity for our brand growth.”
The most efficient sedan, the Mazda 6 was launched in 2003 (2004 Model Year) to replace the aging 626. It takes three generations. The current QV was launched in 2013 (Model Year 2014) and has undergone lifelong sustainable improvements to ensure its competitive role, making dynamic rendering more successful than most rivals.
Note, however, that Mazda has for many years operated on two materials used to produce the rear-wheel drive chassis and the in-line six-cylinder engine, the luxury sedan. Does it get the name Mazda 6? Nothing less for now.
