An Undeniable Connection Between Driver and Vehicle.

From innovative engineering strategies that create a feeling of oneness between human and machine right on down to perforations in the leather upholstery that absorb road noise, every detail in the MAZDA6 is crafted to facilitate intuitive driver input and effortless vehicle response. Harmony has never been so invigorating. 

SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY

Engineering the Impossible.

At Mazda, creating a better driving experience is our first priority. So we did the impossible: Engineered a vehicle that never sacrifices performance for fuel efficiency. SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY is a holistic system of innovations that takes the entire car into consideration – from body construction and engine technology to chassis and transmission – to improve the overall driving experience.

SKYACTIV-G

SKYACTIV-G

The high-efficiency 2.5 L SKYACTIV-G engine delivers superb fuel economy, better torque than a conventional gasoline engine, and reduced noise and vibration.

SKYACTIV-Drive

SKYACTIV-Drive

Our engineers created a precise, high-performance automatic transmission that combines the direct, responsive feel of a manual transmission with the silky smoothness of an automatic. 

SKYACTIV-Chassis

SKYACTIV-Chassis

The SKYACTIV‑Chassis is engineered to be nimble at low speeds, yet stable at high speeds. We also engineered it to be light, allowing for a more direct and agile feel.

SKYACTIV-Body

SKYACTIV-Body

Because we crafted an efficient structural design and used ultra-high-tensile steel in critical areas, the MAZDA6’s body is lighter than normal, yet it’s stiffer and stronger.

i-ELOOP

i-ELOOP

The i‑ELOOP regenerative brake system‡‡ generates electricity to power the car’s electrical systems. That means that 100% of the engine’s power can be used for propulsion and you enjoy significant fuel savings.

SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control


Embrace S Curves.

Winner of the 2017 AJAC Best New Innovation Technology Award

Introducing our all-new technology called SKYACTIV‑VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control (GVC). Founded on our groundbreaking SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY, GVC works behind the scenes to achieve a smoother, less fatiguing drive for you and your passengers by subtly adjusting engine torque, intentionally optimizing  vehicle weight transfer during everyday commutes and spirited drives alike. The result is steering that is more precise and a ride that is more comfortable for drivers and passengers.

More Confidence

More Confidence

Due to irregularities and undulations in the road surface, your vehicle does not always travel along the expected line, forcing you to make steering corrections. With GVC, your MAZDA6 responds to driver inputs with fewer steering adjustments, so your vehicle behaves as you intend and you enjoy a more confident drive.

More Comfort

More Comfort

Fatigue steadily builds as you continue to make minor steering corrections. GVC helps alleviate these corrections, especially over long distances. Plus, smooth transitions between G‑forces, suppresses head and body sway, allowing for a more comfortable ride for you and your passengers. 

Enhanced Peace of Mind

Enhanced Peace of Mind

GVC enhances handling, stability and the feeling of the tires gripping the road. You’ll gain an even greater feeling of control and security during evasive manoeuvres as well as in rain, snow and on poor road surfaces.

Interior Refinements  

Immerse your Senses in Enjoyment. 

Richly appointed with premium materials that beg to be touched, subtle enhancements in the KODO design is behind the MAZDA6’s beautiful cabin, helping to elevate the driving experience. Whether it’s the available heated steering wheel that your hands will love during cooler months or dark metal satin accents that help create a calming environment, even the smallest details are designed to make driving better.

Safety

The 2017 MAZDA6 comes with a full complement of passive and active safety features to help keep you safe. We’ve taken into account the finer details, such as placing easy-to-read, uncluttered instrumentation within the driver’s sightlines. The available suite of i‑ACTIVSENSE safety features uses the latest innovations such as camera, radar and laser technology to give you a better sense of your surroundings. And even the SKYACTIV‑Body and ‑Chassis use ultra-high-tensile steel to help protect occupants in case of an accident.
