The 2016 Mazda6 has been named one of “Ward’s 10 Best Interiors,” taking honors among a competitive set of 42 all-new interiors that includes cars, trucks, SUVs and crossovers at all price points.
Revised for the 2016 model year, Mazda6 features an interior befitting of a vehicle costing far more than its $21,495 entry price. Mazda6’s driver-oriented cockpit design has been upgraded for 2016 with a standard electronic parking brake and a redesigned dashboard and gauges for a heightened upscale atmosphere.
“When it launched two years ago as a ’14 model, we said the all-new Mazda6 was arguably the best-looking midsize sedan on the planet, inside and out,” said Tom Murphy, executive editor, WardsAuto World magazine. “Today, that statement remains true as a refreshed Mazda6 arrives with interior upgrades that put this sedan farther ahead of its rivals. The center console and instrument panel have been expertly redesigned to incorporate a new display screen and human-machine interface that works wonderfully. Overall, the new Mazda6 interior looks and feels state-of-the-art.”
In addition to its fresh interior design, the 2016 Mazda6 also has re-engineered front and rear seats for greater comfort and improved sound deadening.
Mazda6 Sport models equipped with an available six-speed automatic transmission, as well as manual- and automatic-equipped Touring models and the Grand Touring trim, come with the MAZDA CONNECTTM suite of infotainment technologies that are displayed through a seven-inch color touchscreen display.
MAZDA CONNECTTM also has a commander control knob for users who prefer using a scroll wheel for Mazda6’s connectivity functions. Features include Bluetooth® phone pairing and audio streaming, Pandora®/AhaTM/StitcherTM radio and available navigation, SiriusXM® radio and a Bose® audio system. If that weren’t enough, Mazda6 Grand Touring has an available head-up display when optioned with the Technology Package.
