Updated 2019 Mazda6 on-sale now

The updated 2019 Mazda6 has gone on-sale in Australia boasting a simplified engine line-up and Apple and Android connectivity standard across the range.

Just one-year after launching the new Mazda6, Mazda has tweaked the line-up, making its G-Vectoring Control Plus system standard across the range, adding Apple and Android connectivity as standard, and just two engines available now.

Mazda has decided to drop the diesel engine from the Mazda6 line-up, with the Sport and Touring running a naturally aspirated 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine while the GT and Ateza variants get a 2.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine.

In addition to Apple and Android connectivity, Mazda said the performance of the radio had been improved. “A second antenna has been added to the vehicle, expanding the overall reception range and cancelling out noise generated by secondary wave interference, which occurs when radio waves from the broadcasting station are reflected by solid objects like buildings”.

Mazda Australia Managing Director, Vinesh Bhindi, said, “The 2018 redesign of Mazda6 saw significant improvements and equipment upgrades; this update is about fine tuning our flagship passenger car by adding the most advanced technologies available to us”.
