Mazda Australia has recently released its facelifted Mazda 6 sedan and wagon range – the updates, featuring revised powertrain offering and added safety equipment, also include a updated interior.
The Mazda 6 model line-up remains unchanged, featuring the Sport; Touring; GT and Atenza in both the sedan and wagon versions.
The Sport is offered exclusively with an updated version of the carryover 2.5 litre naturally aspirated petrol engine. And according to Mazda, the Sport and Touring variants now have $3000 worth of added value compared to the previous models.
Its worthy noting that in order to improve the on-road performance, Mazda has increased the chassis rigidity and revised the suspension geometry, while the electric power steering system has been further tuned.
The interior, as mentioned previously, has also had a significant update. With a new dash, updated centre console, seats and door trims.
Safety has also made a feature in the facelift. From radar cruise control as a standard to blind-spot monitoring, driver attention alert and emergency stop signal. Other features that round up this rather comprehensive safety suite include lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist, rear parking sensors, rear cross-traffic alert, auto-dimming rear-view mirrors, reversing camera and smart city brake support.
And if you are looking for an upmarket feeling, the top-of-the-line Atenza grade is treated to either white or walnut brown Nappa leather trim, wood door and dash trim, Ultrasuede door and dash trim, a sunroof, adaptive LED headlights, surround-view monitors, a 7.0-inch TFT LCD screen, ambient LED interior lighting and ventilated front seats.
