Refreshed Mazda6 on-sale now with no price change

The refreshed Mazda6 has gone on-sale now with a raft of safety, interior and NVH tweaks with prices unchanged.

THE REFRESHED MAZDA6 doesn’t look any different but it’s what’s taken place beneath the metal that counts. Practical Motoring attended the local drive last week and will have a review online shortly.

In the meantime, buyers can expect the addition of pedestrian recognition to the Smart City Brake Support with the speed detection range lifted from 30km/h to 80km/h. Similarly, the operating range for Mazda’s Smart Brake Support has been lifted from 15-160km/h, and Traffic Sign Recognition makes its debut on this refreshed Mazda6.

On the inside, key changes include matching fonts across all systems, a full colour display between the analogue dials. The top-spec Atenza gets nappa leather seats and nicer trim options, like titanium piping on the seats, and overhead console LED down lighting. GT and Atenza variants also have heated rear seats.

NVH has been improved on diesel models via systems designed to smooth out the noise of the diesel engine, as well as improved insulation and sealing, but we’ll go into this in more detail in our review. Stay tuned.

 “The Mazda6 is one of the best medium-sized passenger cars available in the market,” said Mazda Australia marketing director Alastair Doak.

“As it has continued to evolve, Mazda6 can rightly be considered as an alternative to luxury brand models, such are the standard features, safety inclusions and its on-road presence.”

Good to see them not taking a leaf out the European rip-off play manual with the requisite $2-5K price rises we expect.
