Mazda's highly acclaimed Mazda6 Saloon and Tourer models have been upgraded with technology updates, interior improvements, and G-Vectoring Control.

08 Sep 2016 | International News : U.K.

Already regarded as one of the best-handling and most engaging cars in its segment, the Mazda6's dynamic setup has been refined with the introduction of G-Vectoring Control (GVC), the first application of Mazda's new series of Skyactiv-Vehicle Dynamics technology.

An enhanced HUD features colour and Traffic Sign Recognition
GVC varies engine torque to optimise the load on each wheel by utilising integrated control of the engine, transmission, and chassis to enhance the connection between car and driver.

Retaining an unchanged engine lineup, the upgraded Mazda6 features a choice of four engines - 143bhp and 163bhp 2.0-litre Skyactiv-G petrol, as well as 148bhp and 173bhp 2.2-litre Skyactiv-D diesel. The 2.2-litre Skyactiv-D engine features two key improvements designed to increase responsiveness and reduce engine noise - Transient Control and Mazda's Natural Sound Smoother technology.

The Mazda6 is available in eight colours, including Mazda's new Machine Grey Metallic - which appeared on the all new Mazda MX-5 RF at the 2016 New York Motor Show - which goes into production on the Mazda6. Inside, the revised Mazda6 features a new leather steering wheel that on Sport Nav models, is heated.

Other premium upgrades to range-topping Sport Nav models include an enhanced Head-Up Display (HUD) that features colour and Traffic Sign Recognition for the first time, along with electric memory seats that are able to adjust the HUD. While from SE-L Nav models upwards, auto power-folding mirrors are standard; and Mazda's Smart City Brake Support low speed collision mitigation braking now features pedestrian recognition.
