Sometimes in 2018, Mazda decided that it would be prudent to moving up the market scale. This was a declaration that left enthusiasts with little understanding of the whole idea.
No one really knew what to make of it. The Japanese manufacturer has for a long time had a heritage of affordable, balanced performance cars that still maintain its profit margin as healthy.
Among beneficiaries of this newly found endeavor was the Mazda 6 line. Here, depending on which trim you pick, you will enjoy a well-deserved variety.
Lower Mazda6 trims use a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter I4 engine. As you move up to the Grand Touring and Signature models you get a big increase in power. This turbocharged 2.5-liter I4 is primarily the same engine found in the Mazda CX-9 crossover.
Laced with a six-speed automatic transmission the Mazda6 series fires off smooth shifts to deliver 250 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. It has fancied the front-wheel drive.
For technology abilities,the Mazda Connect infotainment system is housed in an 8-inch touchscreen. It is limited in that the screen only operates by touch when the car is stopped and in park.
For controlling Connect on the go, you’ll have to use the rotary knob on the center console. Perhaps the no-touching-while-driving rule as ridiculous as it may sound adds up to the safety elements by helping you to keep eyes on the road.
