All-New 2016 Mazda6 Outperforms The Competition


Like a well-toned athlete, the redesigned 2016 Mazda6 family sports sedan is ready to outperform the competition in the hotly contested midsize car segment. The trendsetting sports sedan sets new benchmarks for quality, reliability, fuel efficiency, and that often elusive “fun-to-drive” quotient that has automotive pundits and consumers alike singing its praises. In fact, JD Power and Associates rated the Mazda6 the “highest vehicle appeal among midsize cars.” Car & Driver Magazine gives it five stars, rating it among their “10 Best” saying: “The ‘6 not only looks like a million bucks inside and out, it drives like it.”


A Stunning Addition To The Mazda Lineup.

The 2016 Mazda6 look sportier, sexier and more contemporary than ever. The sculpted, aerodynamic exterior features subtle design cues that are a stunning example of Mazda’s “Kodo – Soul of Motion” philosophy. From its sleek front fascia with available Active Grille Shutter and LED headlights to its finely tapered rear end, the Mazda6 exudes an attitude that is both playful and sophisticated at the same time.

Meticulously Crafted “The Mazda Way.”

From its finely honed, race-inspired interior to its superbly engineered powertrain, the all-new Mazda6 elegantly fuses a timeless Japanese philosophy with modern engineering. The award-winning combination results in a truly beautiful and thoroughly well-engineered vehicle without compromise.

High Tech Meets High Style.

This unique design philosophy is also clearly evident on the inside of this remarkable sports sedan. The Mazda6’s revamped interior has a decidedly upscale feel that seamlessly integrates a host of advanced technology.


Using premium materials throughout, Mazda engineers meticulously calibrated every gauge, pedal, and knob to both simplify and enhance the driver’s command and control. A slimmer central stack and refined dashboard contain HVAC controls while a seemingly floating, tablet-style display is situated above the dash. The large, comfortable, three-spoke sports steering wheel features an array of useful fingertip controls, including Bluetooth® connectivity for hands-free dialing, music, texts, and even voice command capabilities. This feature allows you seamlessly connects you to your smartphone to the audio system for making calls, managing your playlists, and more. It can even automatically dial 911 if you are involved in an accident.

A Commander Control Dial placed just below the shifter allows instant access to MAZDA CONNECT™, which includes a variety of key technology functions, including audio, navigation, infotainment options, and more. All these functions are also available via a responsive oversized touchscreen display. MAZDA CONNECT offers a full range of available “infotainment” features, including AHA™ Internet Radio, Pandora® and Stictcher™ Internet Radio, and available SiriusXM® Radio.

The available navigation system presents turn-by-turn instructions on the Active Driving Display nestled between twin analog gauges in the instrument cluster. The display also communicates a variety of important vehicle information so you can keep your eyes focused on the road ahead.

Engineered To Outperform The Best.
The 2016 Mazda6 takes full advantage of Mazda’s proven 2.5-liter SKYACTIV®-G four-cylinder engine that generates 184 hp and 185 lb. ft. of torque for spirited acceleration. Power is transmitted to the front wheel drive through either a six-speed manual or available six-speed automatic transmission.

The four-cylinder achieves an excellent EPA-estimated 40 mpg highway, thanks to Mazda’s proprietary and available i-ELOOP regenerative braking setup. This technology generates additional electric energy to augment the vehicle’s 12-volt electrical system to run the car’s various electrical components. Regenerative braking improves real-world fuel efficiency by up to 5 percent.


An Unwavering Commitment To Safety

The 2016 Mazda6 also gets outstanding marks for its advanced safety features, earning it a 2015 IIHS Top Safety Pick+ when equipped with available Smart City Brake Support This feature automatically applies the brakes between two and 18 miles per hour if it senses an impending collision.

This key safety feature is part of “i-ACTIVESENSE,” this suite of cutting-edge safety features consist of:

  • Mazda Radar Cruise Control automatically sets a safe speed and distance between other cars;
  • Forward Collision Warning detects possible obstructions;
  • Lane Departure Warning System alerts you if your car drifts out of its intended lane;
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert warns you if a vehicle, person or object is approaching while backing up;
  • Blind Spot Monitoring alerts you to a vehicle in your blind spot to avoid making an unsafe lane change.
  • Available Adaptive Front Lighting bends with the road improving visibility while cornering.
  • Distance Recognition measures the distance between you and the vehicle in front of you, warning if you are getting too close.

The new 2016 Mazda6 four-door sedan sports is the next evolution of an award-winning and race-proven car that continues to leave the competition and convention in its rearview mirror.  George Kennedy of consumerreports.org sums it all up: “If you don’t feel like following the pack with a family sedan—with options like the Honda Accord, Hyundai Sonata, or Nissan Altima just too boring for your liking—the Mazda6 is a young, individualistic choice that blends style, sportiness, and advanced features.”
