Out with the old traditional (ratchet-type) handbrake lever and in with the new electric parking brake now fitted on all grades, the Mazda6's revised interior also includes a petrol ‘sport’ drive mode that really livens up the gear selection. Suspension and engineering has been further enhanced to ensure the car is now smoother, more stylish and blissfully quiet.
Safety and technology has progressed for the 2015 model, with a safety system that is essential in recognising hazards, avoiding collisions and reducing the severity of accidents. This is further enhanced with the addition of adaptive LED headlights for optimum night vision, Lane-Keep Assist, and Driver Attention Alert. Meanwhile, the GSX comes equipped with Mazda's Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM), Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Smart City Brake Support safety features.
Providing 3 SKYACTIV engine options, 2.0ltr (6.0/100km) and 2.5ltr (6.6/100km) petrol and 2.2ltr diesel (5.4/100km fuel economy), there is sure to be something to match every requirement and, cost-wise, the Mazda6 is priced from $46,745 for the 2.5ltr GSX sedan to $58,245 for the Diesel Limited Wagon.
