In terms of its look, the Mazda 6 2018 puts on the same exterior as the gasoline model. The new grille attains thicker borders. The changes also come from the slightly revamped headlights and wheel options. Speaking of the interior, it comes equipped with new air-conditioning vents, an upgraded infotainment system, and a redesigned center stack.

All station wagon and sedan models will come with all-wheel-drive and the new SkyActiv-D engine. However, while the stronger diesel engine may be welcome in the Philippines, the AWD system likely misses the market.
