2017 Mazda 6: It Has Upgrades But They Miss The Point

By  | 

The 2017 Mazda 6 may have had a refresh but you cannot tell that it has. This is due to the fact that there hasn’t been a need to mess about with a design on the exterior that is said to be perfect. Therefore the majority of the changes have been made to the cabin along with under the shell of the vehicle.

One of the biggest changes is the addition of the G-Vectoring Control system and this brings with it the Skyactiv Vehicle Dynamics series, to enhance the driving experience.

It brings together all of the parts of the car that are responsible for the driving, the transmission, engine and suspension, and puts them all under one brain so that the driving experience is stress free and improved.

The mid-size sedan was worked on and now the harshness, vibration and noise have all been reduced. We are also expecting to see more upmarket styling on the Mazda 6 and use of premium materials, which includes Nappa leather upholstery.

The Mazda 6 also comes with the Active Driving Display and it brings features to assist the driver, including Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring and Traffic Sign Recognition.

Even with some great additions though it is looking like consumers are holding back as they are waiting for the arrival of the 2.5 SkyActiv G-Turbocharged engine to arrive with four cylinders, which is in the Mazda CX-9.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support is missing and while the driver assistance features are a nice addition it seems that many people would like in-car infotainment on the Mazda 6.
