Mazda reveals new all-wheel drive system for updated Mazda6…in Bosnia only…

Mazda’s latest Mazda6 sedan is probably one of the best things to ever happen to the midsize sedan market and since its debut in 2012, we’ve quietly been waiting for new variants to pop up.

For instance, we’re still patiently waiting for the Mazda6 diesel, which the brand promised to launch with the new 6 back in 2012. But it’s since been delayed due to some unspecified technical difficulties.

Additionally, we’re still waiting to see if Mazda will produce a successor to the original MazdaSpeed6 with this generation, or if they’ll add any significant changes such as the addition of all-wheel drive. Well, for starters, they just introduced an all-wheel drive version of the latest 6, but it’s only for the Bosnian and Herzegovinan markets.

A tip was shared with WorldCarFans, where a reader found that Mazda Bosnia and Herzegovina will now be offering an all-new Mazda6 with all-wheel drive, but in wagon form only. This isn’t just new to Mazda in Europe and Asia, but it’s new for the Mazda6 line for this generation, period. So this means, there’s a possibility the new all-wheel drive Mazda6 could at least show up in other Asian and European markets, and we can only hope for a version on our shores.

But for now, the Mazda6 all-wheel drive wagon remains a serious forbidden fruit since it even gets a six-speed manual and Mazda’s touted 2.2L turbodiesel four rated at 150hp and 175hp, the same motor we were supposed to get with our 6 a while ago.
