For the past couple of weeks, Mazda has been teasing us with short Youtube videos showing off the new Mazda6 that will be shown at the Paris Motor Show in September.
But a Russian site called AutoWP has released a high-resolution image of the new 6 onto the web.
The new 6 looks to be a carbon copy of the Takeri concept, right down to the grill. This will be Mazda's second vehicle that will use the Kodo design language, the first being the CX-5 crossover.
Engines will include 2.0L Skyactiv inline four-cylinder engine and a 2.2L Skyactiv-D engine, both going through six-speed manual and automatic transmissions.
The new 6 will make its official debut at the Paris Motor Show in September.

Update: Earlier this morning, Mazda let loose some official pictures of the new 6 and announced the new 6 will premiere at the Moscow Auto Show next month. You might be scratching your head and wondering why Mazda picked Moscow as the place to launch the new 6. The reason is due to Russia emerging as a automotive market.
For the Russian market Mazda6, that will be a equipped with a SKYACTIV-G 2.0L gas engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
Mazda will still show the new 6 at the Paris Motor Show in September, likely announcing what each market will get when the 6 is launched.
