Mazda has released the first teaser video of the 2014 Mazda6, ahead of its debut at the Paris Motor Show.

The company declined to release details, but said the sedan will feature KODO styling which incorporates several cues from the Takeri concept. As Chief Designer Akira Tamatani commented, "The deeply sculpted face with sharp eyes gazing forward, defined by the chrome 'signature wing', instantly conveys to onlookers that this must be Mazda's new flagship sedan."

Additional information is limited, but the North American variant will be equipped with a SKYACTIV-G petrol engine. It can be connected to six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission which should enable the model to return best-in-class fuel economy.  

Sales are slated to begin early next year, so stay tuned for full details.
