While the new generation Mazda6 is still by no means outdated, Mazda has unveiled a facelifted version which adopts the new Mazda family face with a five-point front grille.
Available in three body styles – Sedan, Sport Hatch and Sport Wagon – the refreshed Mazda6 includes improvements to its environmental and safety attributes, driving performance, interior and exterior design, and quality levels.
In Japan, 2.0-litre models have been updated with Mazda’s direct injection MZR 2.0L DISI engine with both front and all-wheel-drive models qualifying as Super-Ultra-Low Emission Vehicles (SU-LEV).
Updated power steering and suspension settings have been integrated, resulting in better handling and straight-line stability at high speeds, as well as delivering a more premium quality ride and enhanced comfort.
Both the 17-inch and 18-inch aluminium wheels have new designs, and the range of eight exterior body colours has been augmented with two new colours – Clear Water Blue Metallic and Midnight Bronze Mica.
Inside, the centre panel stack has a smooth, glossy, piano-black finish while chrome plating adorns the climate control and audio dials, and other parts.
