The Mazda6 received a major overhaul in the year 2014 and when something is already good, there is no need to change it again.
With the same policy, the manufacturers are going to make some minor changes to make the car more comfortable than it already is.
Instead of going for a revamp, the new 2017 Mazda6 has received some simple yet most important features. In their statement, the designers claimed that they have changed the interior to make it more spacious and give better legroom for passengers. The seats are now upgraded with Nappa leather stitching. It usually belongs to the top of the trimline like the Grand Touring with a premium package.
Along with other changes, 2017 Mazda6 now has heated steering wheel, metallic accents, black headliner and heated rear outboard seating for maximum comfort in cold weather. The car also uses regenerative braking for best control in slippery roads. The manufacturer has also upgraded all base models of Mazda6. All of them are now equipped with the Mazda Connect Infotainment system with all essential connectivity options and will keep you entertained on the road.
The door seals have been made tighter in the 2017 edition. It received multiple complaints from users for being lose and repeatedly opening when in motion. Sound insulation materials have been used in abundance in the 2017 Mazda6 model to keep the vehicle vibration and noise free. The front glass is thicker and the infotainment system is now upgraded with a 4.6-inch TFT meter full color display.
Safety features integrated in the next gen Mazda6 includes advanced blind spot monitoring, lane keep assist and traffic sign recognition. A bundled software in the car powers the G-Vectoring control. It automatically adjusts the car’s steer, minimize roll and reduces jerkiness to ensure a smooth ride. All the moves made by a driver can be fixed automatically on the go allowing them to relax when driving in long roads.
The new G-vectoring system has already been introduced in Mazda Axela in Japan. It is introduced to the U.S. audience with the Mazda3 and will now be found in Mazda6 models. The car is expected to hit stores this September. The automaker has not announced the pricing for the 2017 Mazda6 cars but with the release date close by, it is a matter of days before the list of trimlines available on launch and pricing be announced.
