2017 Mazda6 Review
If you are in the market for the perfect mid-size sedan, we could not imagine why you wouldn't choose the 2017 Mazda6. At Moffett's Mazda, we have rarely encountered a car that brings together outstanding fuel-efficiency, obsessive engineering, and cutting-edge technology in one stylish package. Available in three trim levels — GX, GS, and GT — we strongly believe that once you get to know more about the 2017 Mazda6, the more you will want to drive one. Let's take a closer look at all this innovative mid-size sedan has to offer.
Every 2017 Mazda6 comes with a powerful and efficient SKYACTIV-G 2.5-liter, direct injection, DOHC 16-valve four-cylinder engine with VVT that produces 184 horsepower at 5,700 rpm and 185 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,250 rpm. Drivers will enjoy a high-level of control thanks to the six-speed manual or automatic transmission with SKYACTIV-Drive that is gives you the responsive feel of a manual transmission with the smoothness of an automatic. One of the unique aspects of the 2017 Mazda6 is the groundbreaking SKYACTIV-Vehicle Dynamics with G-Vectoring Control. This system gives you, and up to five passengers, a smoother ride by adjusting engine torque and optimizing vehicle weight transfer no matter the driving conditions. When combined with rack-and-pinion steering with engine-rpm-sensing variable power assist, the anti-lock brake system with Electronic Brake Force Distribution and front independent MacPherson strut suspension with coil springs and stabilizer bar, drivers will feel one with the road at all times. In addition, you will take fewer trips to the gas station due to fuel-efficiency of to up to 8.9 L/100 city and 6.7 L/100 highway.*
A smooth ride is great, but drivers in Central Ontario also want to remain comfortable, entertained, and connected at all times. The 2017 Mazda6 can do all three thanks a whole suite of standard and optional features. All trims come with a seven-inch colour touchscreen audio display with Mazda Connect, two USB ports and auxiliary audio input jack, steering-wheel-mounted Bluetooth and audio controls, and an SMS text message function. If you are demanding about your audio quality, the GT trim comes standard with an impressive 11-speaker premium Bose audio system with Centerpoint surround technology, AudioPilot noise compensation technology, and SurroundStage signal processing. We should also mention that for those who require luxury, the 2017 Mazda6 can also be outfitted with an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support and Nappa leather upholstery seats.
Since safety is always important to Moffett's Mazda and our customers, we were happy to hear about the amazing standard safety features on the 2017 Mazda6. No matter the trim level, you get a rearview camera, Dynamic Stability Control, a Traction Control System, Hill Launch Assist, and front and rear side-door impact-protection beams. As far as airbags, the 2017 Mazda6 offers a full complement of dual front and side airbags and air curtains. For even more safety, you can also add the optional Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring System, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, or the Lane-keep Assist System on some trims.
