The Mazda6 has long been regarded as one of the best-handling, most engaging vehicles in its segment. Mazda have once again pushed the boundaries of the handling and overall practicality of this premium car with the introduction of G-Vectoring Control (GVC). GVC is the first in a series of new SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS technologies that provide integrated control of the engine, transmission and chassis to deepen the sense of connection between car and driver that differentiates Mazda vehicles from others. Based on the revolutionary idea of enhancing chassis performance with the engine, GVC is the world's first technology to adjust engine drive torque in response to steering inputs.
Comprehensive improvements in sound insulation aboard the updated 2017 have really enhanced the appeal of this stylish and practical car. These improvements have been made with the adoption of improved door seals, tighter tolerances between panels, and sound insulation materials added to the underbody, rear console, headliner and doors. Laminated front side windows further suppress wind noise.
On board, design improvements to enhance the Mazda-unique, driver-focused environment include a new steering wheel design, a new Active Driving Display (Mazda's heads-up display) now with higher resolution, full-colour graphics for greater readability in diverse light conditions, and a new 4.6-inch, full-colour TFT LCD driver's multi-information display with enriched graphics.
In addition, the new Mazda6 is backed by outstanding passive safety levels with a full range of i-ACTIVSENSE active safety technologies available. These include a European first; a new, Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR) feature which identifies No Entry and speed limit signs, providing alerts should the driver exceed the limit, and the Advanced Smart City Brake Support system (Advanced SCBS), which replaces a near-infrared laser with a forward-sensing camera, widening the system's speed range for detecting other vehicles.
The new Mazda6 will be available to purchase from Pentagon Mazda in Lincoln from this September. If you would like to find out more information about the new model, then please head down to Pentagon Mazda or call 0333 222 0424.
