Mazda6 marks its 15th anniversary
Mazda6 has established itself in the midsize sedan segment with superb driving dynamics, handsome design that stands out among its staid competition and craftsmanship that goes a step above expectations.
Now in its third generation, Mazda6 celebrates its 15th anniversary since going on sale internationally, still setting the benchmark for its segment and for the Mazda brand.
In recent years, Mazda has made dozens of changes that further elevate it among its peers, no longer waiting for mid-cycle refreshes to make meaningful improvements.
For 2015, Mazda6 received subtle refinements to what was already a well-received third-generation model after adopting Kodo—Soul of Motion design and lightweight, efficient Skyactiv Technology in its third generation.
For the 2017 model year, Mazda6 added many of the premium touches that were introduced in the allnew Mazda CX-9, including additional sound insulation by way of thicker door seals and laminated front glass and luxuries like available Nappa leather seating surfaces and rear USB charging ports.
Mazda6 was also the first vehicle in the North America to include GVectoring Control, a Mazda-exclusive technology that uses throttle and steering inputs to smooth out steering feel, leading to greater confidence behind the wheel and more sure-footed handling.
The Mazda6 has now been in production through three generations for 15 years and counting.
