Feel incredibly connected to your vehicle by going with the 2017 Mazda6. Intuitive controls help facilitate this sensation, along with a powerful engine and taunt chassis. Just looking at the exterior generates excitement, while the interior has been designed to facilitate comfort and driver alertness. This is the midsize sedan of the future, available now.
Stepping on the accelerator pedal coaxes plenty of life from the standard 2.5-litre Skyactiv-G inline four-cylinder engine. It boasts improved efficiency and torque versus similarly-sized engines, while still running supremely quiet. Mated to it is the Skyactiv-Drive 6-speed automatic transmission, or a Skyactiv-MT 6-speed manual. Front-wheel drive is standard for all models, providing excellent control.
In the name of conserving fuel, the 2017 Mazda6 sedan has been designed with an i-Eloop regenerative brake system. Each time you stop or slow down, electricity is captured and stored for powering various electrical systems. The result is all the engine's power is put to use moving you forward, instead of running everything from air conditioning to the stereo.
A Skyactiv-Chassis has been designed to provide great maneuverability at low speeds, which is perfect in parking lots and other tight spots, while still being stable when traveling on the freeway. Part of the reason for this wondrous performance is the lightweight yet strong materials used in the chassis construction. Also helping to shed weight is the Skyactiv-Body, while being more rigid than on the previous model. With G-Vectoring Control seamlessly makes adjustments to engine torque, boosting weight transfer when powering through turns. As a result, you'll notice steering is more precise, while the ride quality is far improved.
You can be confident transporting even the most precious of cargo in the 2017 Mazda6, thanks to clever standard and optional safety systems. A wide-angle rearview camera comes with all models, giving drivers a clear video feed of what's going on behind the car. Traction control, dynamic stability control and hill launch assist automatically act to keep the sedan on the right path. Advanced technologies such as smart city brake support, traffic sign recognition, lane-keep assist and distance recognition can be added, further assisting the driver with avoiding dangerous situations.
Even the 2017 Mazda6 interior has been designed to be functional, while still couching up to five people in plenty of comfort. Functional storage is located on both rows, such as the front door pockets with bottle holders and standard fold-down rear armrest with integrated cupholders. Rich materials are used throughout, complementing options such as a heated steering wheel, soft leather upholstery and an 11-speaker Bose Centerpoint sound system. The standard 7-inch colour touchscreen for Mazda Connect puts many features at your fingertips, with user-friendly menus and easy-to-read icons. Two USB ports and an auxiliary audio input jack keep modern drivers' and passengers' devices powered and connected. Drivers stay informed of important details through the available colour multi-information display. Distraction is further minimized through the optional colour active driving display, which puts vital information right in the driver's field of view.
