Evaluate Mazda 6 passenger car 2016
Improvements to Mazda’s long-term staple goods are both hidden and visible.
There are more Mazda6 updates than expected. Like other recent visits from Japan, it is an important hidden thing as the title changes in the 2016 model.
You can see it, touch it and feel it when you drive. That’s not a big change but a real worth improvement for a car that’s always close to the front of the mid-size package.
Australians can be infatuated with SUVs but the competition in the family car segment becomes ever more difficult, with great value in the locally produced Toyota Camry, more than anything in the latest Subaru Liberty, and even Honda becomes smarter by abandoning the Accord Sport. Mixture.
Mazda has done impressive work on the efficiency of engines and gearboxes through Skyactiv improvements.
Mazda Australia said six cars are the country’s most popular mid-sized imports under $ 60,000. It is sold only by the integrated Camry in Melbourne and the $ 60,000 C-Class.
Moving along, the official line on Mazda6 is all about improved safety, not just passive anti-collision protection but also an active device to help you avoid trouble from the start.
In addition to safety steps, Mazda has done impressive work on the efficiency of engines and gearboxes through Skyactiv improvements.
Safety change is a trick of what it calls iActivesense from leading Atenza models to Sport, Touring and GT models without price increases. Mazda actually claims that it saves $ 1200, although that’s not entirely true except Atenza is genuine cut to $ 1380 to maintain its position on the GT.
Blind spot monitoring, rear traffic warning, smart city brake assist and automatic rearview mirror are now standard on every Mazda6. Touring and GT add a reversing function in the city brake.
So the all-new Mazda6 line is slightly safer and available for under $ 50,000 before going on the road.
On the road
Mazda6 update – external safety equipment – is surprisingly good. The travel car to The Tick test is well equipped and well-equipped and well-driven.
It doesn’t feel as sporty as some of the Camry or Ford Mondeo rivals, or as spacious as a Volkswagen Passat. Compared to the Honda Accord or even the Subaru Liberty, it gives a significant and classy feel.
Electric parking brake shows that Mazda has been plying with hidden details in the car.
The number 6 reminds me almost immediately of its additional safety when the blind spotlight in the driver’s side mirror flashes and I receive a warning beep. It feels comfortable, similar to other models with a visual reminder of the right time to change lanes.
Thankfully, I’m not trying to support smart city braking, either front or rear, although I know it will warn me in the back and add brake pressure if I feel likely to have an accident. front.
So I can relax and enjoy the car, it’s quieter and more subtle than I remember from my last run in a Mazda6.
That is the reflection of improved plastic and upgraded sound insulation that Japanese manufacturers fit into these days, now when the hangover situation has been relieved, after the financial crisis global key.
There must be the appearance of Skyactiv engines to really take me to Mazdas without spinning, which is always a bit too harsh for my hobby.
The smoothness of the latest 2.5-liter four is something to enjoy. The stop-start fuel economy technology works well, has a good mid-range torque of 250Nm and, at the end, has 138kW to overcome. The six-speed auto is smooth and efficient.
The car is not particularly fast compared to the stopwatch but it doesn’t matter in class.
It has a drag rating that is worth the price but some people will be disappointed because the spare wheel is just a space saver.
On the front of the ride and handling, the Mazda6 has good grip and firm ride but still comfortable.
In the cabin, I like the seven-inch touch screen and the sound punch. Electric parking brake shows that Mazda has been plying with hidden details in the car.
Always good to come back to a car you like and discover genuine improvements. Especially when, thanks to the exchange rate, there is no price increase.
