Mazda has kept busy as of late with the redesign of most of their lineup. The Mazda6, big sister to one of the best selling models from the family, has received its own restyling in 2014, and the 2016 Mazda6 has been judged mature enough for a subtle refresh.
The new design of the Mazda6, introduced in 2014, is quite striking. It also marked the introduction of the third generation of the model, giving it back the dynamism that initially made its popularity back when it was first introduced. For 2016, the sedan looks slightly upgraded, with a thinner silhouette and a thicker chrome belt that underlines a more luxurious front grille, and stretches out towards upgraded headlamps. The sedan is beautiful from every angle and the same applies to the rear portion with a reminder of the chrome strip running the length of the trunk and into the line of the taillights, completed with a pair of exhausts. The redesigned Mazda6 is definitely a looker and easily stands out from the crowd of mid-size sedans as being one of the most dynamic and best looking offer on the market.
Nothing new under the 2016 Mazda6’s hood; it comes with the same 2.5-liter, 4-cylinder engine rated at 184 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque. When shopping for your brand new Mazda6, you will have the choice between three transmissions: a 6-speed manual, a 6-speed automatic and a 6-speed automatic with i-ELOOP technology with a regenerative braking system that produces and stores electricity in capacitor to help power the Mazda6’s electrical components. The latter offers the best fuel economy of the lineup with 8.5L/100km in the city and 5.9L on the highway. To further increase the vehicle’s fuel economy, the Mazda6 also comes equipped with Mazda’s very own Skyactiv technology.
Great looks don’t have to mean restricted space. In fact, the Mazda6 offers a generous cargo volume of 419 liters, that’s plenty to accommodate any active lifestyle. The 2016 Mazda6’s refresh applies to the inside of the car as well, with a reviewed dashboard that integrates better quality materials as well as a brand new 7-inch display screen. Features standard on entry level GX include cruise control with wheel-mounted controls, HUD display, push button start and heated front seats. When opting for the GS or GT trims, you also get the rearview camera, the navigation system, dual zone climate control, sunroof, and more.
The Mazda6 also offers plenty of safety features such as blind spot monitoring system, rear cross traffic alert and whiplash-reducing adjustable front-seat headrests. The technology package available on the GT version adds to the lot with lane departure warning system, radar cruise control, forward obstruction warning and smart brake support.
