Mazda has revealed that the Mazda6 Saloon and Tourer are getting an upgrade! Coming into effect in October 2016, the Mazda6 will include some exciting new enhancements to make your driving experience even more exciting.
Under the Hood
The Mazda6 will now include the first application of Mazda’s new series of SKYACTIV-Vehicle Dynamics technology with the introduction of G-Vectoring Control (GVC). This new system varies the engine torque to optimise the load on each wheel, making the car more responsive and reducing the need for steering corrections. Mazda have also made improvements on reducing turbo-lag. On top of this, the Mazda6 offers a more linear acceleration in their diesel model through Transient Control.
Diesel versions of the upgraded Mazda6 will also offer improvements on noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) thanks to Mazda’s Natural Sound Smoother technology. This works on reducing diesel knock at low-speed. In addition, Mazda have improved the insulation to reduce wind noise inside the car.
In the Cabin
The upgrade version includes several new features on select models. SE-L Nav models upwards will now include auto power-folding mirrors as standard. And the Sport Nav is receiving a whole host of enhancements, including a new heated leather steering wheel, enhanced head-up display, electric memory seats which will adjust the head-up display and a new colour TFT display dial. Mazda’s Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) has also had an upgrade, and now includes pedestrian recognition in it’s low-speed collision braking.
Finally, the upgraded Mazda6 will be available in Mazda’s new Machine Grey Metallic, as well as the seven colours available on the current version.
