The Frankfurt Motor Show in September is to feature the all-new Mazda6 debut, it emerged today.
As a complete redesign of the original Mazda6, the new version has been updated to include improved safety and environmental performance.
It is set to be shown off to visitors at the event next month, where a number of other marques will showcase their forthcoming models.
And according to Mazda, the new design embodies the "Zoom-Zoom" brand philosophy, which it says offers a "thrilling drive" to reflect the enjoyment felt when experiencing motion as a child.
"The result is an exciting and delightful experience that only the all-new Mazda6 can deliver," a statement from the company maintained.
In related news, the Mazda MX-5 recently came first in a poll to find the most reliable convertibles.
Warranty Direct placed the model in front of competitors such as the Peugeot 206CC and the BMW Z3.
