Introducing the New 2018 Mazda6
The 2018 Mazda6 is refreshed and reinvigorated with a stunning new design inside and out, more models and even more premium features. There’s also new Cylinder Deactivation‡ and an available new 2.5 T Dynamic Pressure Turbo engine for drivers wanting an extra boost of power. Finely crafted to deliver superb quality, soul-rousing aesthetics and an unmistakeably exhilarating drive, the Mazda6 is so striking and so well crafted, you’ll savour every moment behind the wheel.
SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
Windshield-projected colour Active Driving Display (ADD)
The new full-colour, windshield-projected Active Driving Display (ADD)▼ projects critical driving information directly in your field of view, allowing you to keep your eyes focused on the road. Now included is our Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR)▼††system which reads speed limit, do not enter and stop signs.
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.
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.
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.
