2017 Mazda6 Updates and Changes

The 2017 Mazda6 Receives Some Upgrades Ahead of Its September 2016 Release Date

2017 Mazda6 Updates and Changes

It’s not easy to find a midsize sedan as affordable and upscale as the Mazda6. That’s why some may be surprised that things are getting even better for the 2017 model year, as the 2017 Mazda6 updates and changes are set to raise the bar for budget-friendly sophistication.

The Mazda6 was a midsize sedan at the top of its game for the 2016 model year, but somehow, Mazda has found some ways to make this model even more appealing. It starts with the vehicle’s G-Vectoring Control technology, which will offer drivers more precise control and a more comfortable ride.

New Features in the 2017 Mazda6

With such a great driving experience, of course, the Mazda6 needs great features to match. This is true for even the most die-hard driving enthusiasts, who are sure to be glad to hear that they can now get the 2017 Mazda6 with a manual transmission while still receiving the MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment system.

But the feature changes don’t stop there. Mazda is also bringing more available safety technologies to the model, such as Traffic Sign Recognition, Lane-Keep Assist and Advanced Blind Spot Monitor, in addition to a 4.6-inch color TFT meter display in Grand Touring models. The Active Driving Display, which has been seen in the previous model, receives font changes to make it more uniform with the rest of the Mazda6’s displays.
