Besides a coupe program manager Hiroshi Kajiyama confirmed that the Mazda6 could also get an all-wheel drive system.

“There are no set plans, but we are studying the possibility of introducing all-wheel drive – it would be a good weapon with which to establish the brand,” said Kajiyama.

The 2014 Mazda6 is scheduled to go on sale in the U.S. early next year.
