2017 Mazda6 Gains Nappa Leather, Other Small Updates

Arrives in U.S. dealerships this September

The Mazda6 received a full redesign for the 2014 model year, and every year since then, it has added some thoughtful updates. The upcoming model year is no different, and the 2017 Mazda6 returns with just a few changes.

Mazda says the new model features an improved interior. Nappa leather seats with contrast stitching are available on Grand Touring models with the Premium Package, which also brings a black headliner, metallic accents, heated steering wheel, heated rear outboard seats, and regenerative braking. Meanwhile, all entry-level Mazda6 Sport models now come standard with the Mazda Connect infotainment system.

Other updates include tighter door seals, thicker front glass, and increased sound insulation materials to reduce cabin noise. An improved head-up display now features full color, and Grand Touring models also receive a 4.6-inch full-color TFT meter display. Drivers benefit from a host of new safety features, including Traffic Sign Recognition, lane-keep-assist, and Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring.

As we previously reported, the 2017 Mazda6 gains G-Vectoring Control, which uses the car's onboard computer to minimize steering inputs made unconsciously, correct understeer, minimize roll, and reduce jerkiness. The Mazda6, along with the updated 2017 Mazda3, will be the automaker's first model in North America to receive the technology, which first debuted in Japan on the updated Mazda Axela.

The new Mazda6 arrives in U.S. dealerships this September. Prices will be announced at a later date.
