The 2016 Mazda6: Small Changes Make a Big Difference

Mazda6 Sport

The 2016 Mazda6 has been revised for the new model year, with a significant number of minor changes having been made for an all-over refresh of the vehicle. Mazda fans will be excited for the refresh, which features a new take on styling and adds up-to-date technology. Take a moment to explore how the 2016 Mazda6 improves upon an already top-notch vehicle.

Grand Touring Trim

The 2016 Mazda6 Grand Touring trim has been revamped in both the front and the rear. The front bumper intakes have been altered slightly, with an upscale-looking horizontal slate set on the grilles. The taillights have been redesigned with fresh internal lights, replacing the xenon headlights with LED bulbs. These changes give the Mazda6 a richer and sleeker aesthetic, with a sportier look than ever. This trim also includes uniquely designed 19-inch wheels, along with a rear spoiler for aerodynamics.

A New Interior

The interior of the 2016 Mazda6 features power front seats with leather upholstery and driver memory settings. The dashboard has been refitted, providing a fresh look and giving the feeling of a lowered hood without a hard redesign in the A-pillars or firewall. The central display has been modeled as a floating above-dash panel, styled after a tablet. The central stack has been redone for a slimmer pod, which holds the HVAC controls under thinner central air vents. The framework of the dash complements this sleeker center console, which sports an electronic parking brake.

A Different Take on Electronics

While much of the technology in the basic 2016 Mazda6 Sport model remains unchanged, the other trim levels have received some electronics upgrades. Mid and upper trims with a manual transmission are getting a 7-inch touchscreen, slightly larger than the size in previous model years. Those with an automatic transmission get a Sport mode, which allows for more spirited driving and handling. And every 2015 Mazda6 trim has been equipped with an electronic parking brake.
