2017 Mazda6 midsize sedan continues to evolve

Our current-generation product lineup released since the launch of the Mazda CX-5 has earned customer support and high acclaim around the world for its powerful sense of vitality born of Mazda’s KODO—Soul of Motion design language and combination of driving pleasure and efficiency delivered by SKYACTIV Technology. I feel this shows our company-wide quest to deliver unique value transcending notions of class and segment is resonating with customers. Mazda is beginning to fulfill its dream of becoming an irreplaceable presence in the lives of our customers, connected to them through a strong and special bond. We strive to regularly update our products and continuously introduce the latest from Mazda to deliver greater value and refinement — because that is what customers expect from Mazda and that realizes the Mazda dream.

Mazda6 has been leading our product evolution with overwhelming appeal since debuting in 2012. It has earned high acclaim around the world, including being named the 2014 RJC Car of the Year in Japan and a Top 3 Finalist for the 2013 World Car Design of the Year. In January 2015, an exceptionally major update answered many customer requests, including the introduction of more refined exterior and interior designs and the latest safety technology and functions. This second update focuses on further advancing the high-quality touch to satisfy the desires of customers who seek the finer things in life.

To add premium value, a new interior package has been introduced featuring genuine Nappa leather and thorough refinement of every detail. The updated Mazda6 also adopts new technologies introduced with in the 2017 Mazda3. These include G-Vectoring Control (GVC), which enhances the Jinba Ittai driving experience, as well as state-of-the-art technologies. Furthermore, i-ACTIVSENSE advanced safety technologies now operate in a wider range of situations, with new functions such as pedestrian detection support added to the Advanced Smart City Brake Support (Advanced SCBS) system.

We are continuously taking on new challenges to evolve the Mazda6, aiming to strengthen our special bond with customers and develop into an irreplaceable presence in their lives. My hope is that this updated model will become a beloved partner that brightens customers’ active lifestyles.
