Mazda 6 gets tech, interior updates for 2017
Mazda's D-segment sedan recently received its mid-cycle update in the form of added tech, along with an improved interior.
For 2017, Mazda claimed the midsize sedan now has better sound deadening after they installed a thicker front glass and new door seals. Meanwhile, Grand Touring models can now be specified with Nappa leather seats with color-contrast piping.
In terms of amenities, the Premium Package fits the Mazda 6 with several new features like: black headlining, heated steering wheel with Japanese chidori stitching, heated rear outboard seats and metallic finishes on the switches and cabin trim.
A full-color Active Driving Display will also be present in the 2017 Mazda6 while Grand Touring Models will even have a 4.6-inch TFT instrument panel. Standard safety features on the refershed midsize sedan include: Traffic Sign Recognition, Lane-Keep Assist and Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring.
The exterior design of the Mazda6 remains the same but is now available with a new color palette called Metallic Gray.
One of the key additions installed on the 2017 Mazda6 is the all-new G-Vectoring Control (GVC). According to Mazda, this will allow the Mazda6 to deliver better handling and power delivery.
First used on the 2017 Mazda3, it is the first in a series of SkyActiv-Vehicle Dynamics tech. It won't just be seeing service in the Mazda3 and Mazda6 as the automaker also stated that they plan to fit the new technologies in other models soon for an “enhanced Jinba Ittei feel”.
The 2017 Mazda6 will first roll out in the US market at around September this year.
