2017 Mazda6 gains G-Vectoring Control as part of range updates
The Mazda6 Saloon and Tourer models have gained G-Vectoring Control as part of a number of updates across the range.
Marking the first application of Mazda’s new series of SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS technology, G-Vectoring Control varies engine torque to optimise the load on each wheel.
In addition, Mazda’s 148bhp and 173bhp 2.2-litre SKYACTIV-D engines have been updated to now include Transient Control and Mazda’s Natural Sound Smoother Technology (NSS).
Transient Control reduces turbo lag and boosts torque to provide an improved throttle response, while Mazda’s Natural Sound Smoother (NSS) technology enhances refinement by reducing diesel knock noise during starting and low-speed acceleration. This is accompanied by a comprehensive improvement in sound insulation.
The updated Mazda6 also brings interior revisions including a new leather steering wheel, with heated functionality on Sport Nav models. Range-topping Sport Nav models also bring an enhanced head up display that features colour and Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR) for the first time, plus electric memory seats that now also adjust the head-up display. Meanwhile from SE-L Nav models upwards auto power-folding mirrors are standard, and Mazda’s Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) low-speed collision mitigation braking now features pedestrian recognition.
Pricing for the new Mazda6 remains unchanged at £19,795 to £28,895 on-the-road and the updated models arrive in dealerships later this autumn.
