Now with four models to choose from, including a new Signature model, and a new, available turbocharged engine, the MAZDA6 offers new features such as available ventilated seats, Sen wood accents, a matrix of safety technologies and our legendary connection between car and driver. The MAZDA6 is an engineering and aesthetic marvel made for loving every minute of the drive.

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.

The Ultimate Responsive Drive
The Ultimate Responsive Drive

The MAZDA6 chassis has been thoroughly revised to deliver greater agility and a dramatic reduction in Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH).

SKYACTIV-G with Cylinder Deactivation
SKYACTIV-G with Cylinder Deactivation

The high-efficiency 2.5 L SKYACTIV-G now comes with Cylinder Deactivation. When you’re driving in steady speed situations, two of the four cylinders will deactivate when not required, but activate instantaneously when needed for maximum performance. Aside from maintaining superb fuel economy, you’ll also enjoy the reduced Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH).

SKYACTIV-G 2.5 T Dynamic Pressure Turbo Engine
SKYACTIV-G 2.5 T Dynamic Pressure Turbo Engine

Mazda’s industry-first Dynamic Pressure Turbo engine delivers a boost in both horsepower (227 hp) and torque (310 lb ft). Extra power is provided by using a small inlet port to force air into its turbocharger, akin to how water velocity increases when putting a thumb over a hose.

SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control

Embrace S Curves.

Winner of the AJAC 2017 Best New Innovation Technology Award, SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control (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, suppress 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 Luxury 

A Striking Vision of Elegance

The evolution of KODO design and a new mature elegance grace the MAZDA6 interior. Completely refreshed with new features such as a redesigned dash and instrument cluster, the MAZDA6 is crafted to inspire a love of the drive. From wider, sculpted seats with thicker padding and available Sen wood and Ultrasuede®◆ on the new Signature model to standard automatic dual-zone climate controls and even better sound insulation, every detail of the 2018 MAZDA6 makes driving a joy.

New Signature Model

New for 2018, the MAZDA6 Signature comes with Nappa leather seats, Sen wood and Ultrasuede® accents on the dash and door panels and premium cross-stitching on the steering wheel. Paired with the Dynamic Pressure Turbo engine, this new premium model captures the essence of perfection.

Sound Effects
Sound Effects

For 2018, Mazda designers enhanced exterior noise control, adding more sound-deadening materials, like thicker floor panels and rear wheel housing inner walls. The result is a quieter ride that lets you hear your music better – or just enjoy the peace and quiet a little more.

Automatic Dual-zone Climate Controls

Now standard on all models, automatic dual-zone climate controls create individual micro-climates for driver and front passenger. Set your preferred temperature setting and let the automated system keep you comfortable throughout your drive.

GS-L Luxury Model

With our new GS-L model, you’ll enjoy leather-trimmed upholstery, 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, heated steering wheel, front wiper de-icer and a suite of our i-ACTIVSENSE safety technologies.

Ventilated Front Seats
Ventilated Front Seats

Standard on the GT and Signature models, the new ventilated front seat system draws air through ventilation ports in the seats, drawing hot and humid air away from areas where the seat comes into contact with your body – and delivering a more comfortable driving environment.

Safety

The 2018 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. For 2018, more i-ACTIVSENSE features are standard on all models. And even the SKYACTIV-Body and -Chassis use ultra-high-tensile steel to help protect occupants in case of an accident.

Traffic Sign Recognition System

The Traffic Sign Recognition system†† uses cameras to read road signs such as speed limit, do not enter and stop signs. The Windshield-projected colour Active Driving Display shows this information so you can stay informed without taking your eyes off the road.

360° View Monitor

Using four cameras on the front sides and rear, and eight parking sensors the 360° View Monitor generates a surround view of the MAZDA6 from the top. An alarm sounds when near obstacles and also assists in monitoring blind spots.

Safety Promo 13
Front and Rear Parking Sensors

Front and rear parking sensors use ultrasonic sensors to detect obstructions around the MAZDA6 while parking and notify the driver of their approximate distance from the vehicle using a beep sound. Just one more safety measure for added peace of mind. 

Infotainment

Connections You Can Count On.

Our most technologically advanced MAZDA6 is also equipped with our most technologically advanced cockpit. Enjoy connectivity features to suit everyone’s preferences, starting with the HMI Commander that allows the driver to easily control everything from navigation to audio with controls placed at your fingertips. There’s also an audible SMS text readout feature, and USB and auxiliary audio ports come standard.

Infotainment
11-Speaker Premium Bose® Sound System

Custom-built for the MAZDA6, we worked with Bose® to devise a system that considered hundreds of factors, from cabin size and materials to seat positioning and the unique sound variances of today’s digital devices. The result is outstanding clarity, image and range.

Navigation

Our convenient, integrated navigation system offers the advanced features of today’s navigation devices, including voice commands and advanced lane guidance. Plus, getting around town – or out of town – has never been easier thanks to the system’s 3D interactive map with step-by-step audio directions.
