What’s new on the 2017 Mazda6
Like the 2017 Mazda3, the 2017 Mazda6 adds all-new G-Vectoring Control (GVC) in the North American market. GVC technology helps improve new SKYACTIV®-VEHICLE DYNAMICS that integrate control of the transmission, engine, chassis, and body to enhance the feel of the Mazda6.
How exactly does GVC benefit drivers? GVC is able to benefit drivers by providing more control over their cars. You’re able to navigate with more confidence since engineers at Mazda have lessened the need for steering correction and have enhanced sound insulation, providing a more enjoyable ride.
Updates to the 2017 Mazda6
While the 2017 Mazda6 stayed mostly the same, there’s a list of notable enhancements found on every trim level. Grand Touring models receive available Nappa leather seating surfaces in models equipped with Premium Package. That Premium Package includes a black headliner and heated steering wheel — similar to the one found on the all-new CX-9 Signature trim. Other Premium Package advancements include heated rear outboard seats, i-ELOOP regenerative braking technology and a new trim/switch finish throughout the interior.
