Mazda is finally upgrading its midsize sedan. Spy photos show a development mule undergoing tests on the streets of Detroit. It’s wearing current sheet metal, but we suspect it’s riding on the chassis of the 2008 Mazda 6 sedan.
The next-generation Mazda 6 is going to be bigger. The current model’s narrow cabin and limited backseat room have been a constant source of criticism.

For 2008 expected the next-generation Mazda 6 will upgrade to Ford’s new 3.5-liter V6. This engine debuts in the Ford Edge and Lincoln Mark X crossovers this year as well as the Lincoln Mark Z sedan, a car which shares the Mazda 6’s CD3 platform.

Kia Sedona

Kia Sedona

Kia Motors has anounced Kia Sedona 2006-model redesign, arriving in dealerships this month.

Although the Sedona’s base price has increased significantly, so has the quality and content.

The basics: The 3.8-liter all-aluminum engine is shared with the Hyundai Santa Fe and Azera. The new engine is smoother than the underpowered 3.5-liter iron-block engine it replaces, and has considerably more power and torque.

Despite growth in nearly every dimension, the Sedona shed more than 400 pounds in the redesign. Most of it came from the lighter engine, high-tensile steel in the body, and a lighter-weight transmission and rear suspension.

Notable features: Standard features include cruise control, stability control, traction control, CD player, tire-pressure monitors, power windows and mirrors, keyless locking with alarm, tri-zone air conditioning, four-wheel antilock disc brakes and six standard airbags with a full-length side curtain for all three rows.

The base model stickers at $23,665, including freight.

Third-row seats fold into the floor. Second-row seats weigh about 60 pounds each, fold forward and can be removed. Second-row passengers have windows that go down.
