Mazda is releasing teaser after teaser of its upcoming all-new Mazda6. Its mid-sized sedan, which for a time was close to being axed, will be showcased at the 2012 Moscow International Automobile Salon which runs from August 29 to September 2, 2012.

Though details are still somewhat sketchy, it's been revealed that the all-new 6 will wear the "Kodo - Soul of Motion" design language pioneered by the CX-5. The 6 (at least in European spec) will feature a brake regeneration technology called "i-ELOOP". The 6 will also feature the a SkyActiv-G engine with 2.0-liters of displacement mated to a 6-speed SkyActiv-Drive automatic. Whether the 6 will see a power bump from the CX-5's mill remains to be seen.

While you're waiting for the all-new 6 to show itself, a preview video is available after the break straight from the folks at Mazda:

Now Mazda has also released a new video of the Mazda6 rolling off the production line. The video's in Japanese, but at least you'll get the first full car glimpse of Mazda's new mid-sized sedan.
