Is the 2019 Mazda6 AWD?

The 2019 Mazda6 is the most fun-to-drive vehicle in its segment, as any Mazda-branded machine should be. It boasts a plethora of impressive performance specs and optimizing features. But is the 2019 Mazda6 all-wheel drive?

All-Wheel Drive Availability on the 2019 Mazda6

Two hands grip the steering wheel inside a 2019 Mazda6.No, the 2019 Mazda6 is currently not offered in an all-wheel drive configuration. As of this writing, every trim of the 2019 Mazda6 comes with a front-wheel drivetrain.

However, it is said that a diesel Mazda6 with all-wheel drive is on its way. Car and Driver predicts that it will be released before the end of the year. Whereas the current engine on the 2019 Mazda6 is known as the SKYACTIV-G, the diesel option from Mazda is referred to as the SKYACTIV-D. Pages on the Mazda website showed a Mazda6 with this latter engine. Meanwhile, Mazda representatives confirmed the Mazda6 is getting an all-wheel drive option in the near future.

The diesel 2019 Mazda6 is expected to use a 2.2-liter turbo-diesel inline-four engine. Car and Driver believes the forthcoming all-wheel drive option will be available with both the diesel and gasoline iterations on the Mazda6 Grand Touring Reserve and Signature trim levels.

Well, it has yet to happen, but we do hope they’re right.
