''If the new 2015 Mazda6 has charmed you into considering it as your next midsize sedan, the style, comfort, driving experience, fuel efficiency and list of features will surely seal the deal.''
The sophisticated and stylish 2015 Mazda6 will deliver an athletic driving experience to whoever is sitting behind the wheel. The sporty look and feel of the car is reflected in the way the vehicle handles. The new Mazda6 offers a smooth powertrain and quick acceleration. High-quality materials can also be found inside of Mazda’s charming sedan, and affordability and fuel-efficiency are other points to consider.
Earlier this year, the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada named Mazda’s 2014 model Canadian Car of the Year. The new 2015 version however, continues to provide drivers with the sizzle they are looking for in a midsize sedan, with a starting price of only $24,495 MSRP.
The Japanese automaker’s new “6” comes available in three trim levels: GX, GS and GT. All models are equipped with a SKYACTIV-G direct injection 2.5-litre, 4-cylinder engine. One aspect of SKYACTIV-G is that it has a particularly high compression ratio of 14.0:1, which translates into greater thermal efficiency. For consumers, this amounts to better performance with less fuel.
Those that intend on driving the sedan should also note the 184 horsepower and 185 lb-t of torque that is generated by the engine. There is also a choice of two SKYACTIV transmissions: a standard 6-speed manual, and an optional 6-speed automatic with SPORT mode and added paddle shifters depending on the model. Both transmissions are lighter than Mazda’s traditional ones, and will offer 4 to 7 percent better fuel economy.
As for fuel consumption, the automatic has a rating of 8.8/6.1 litres per 100 kilometres (city/hwy). For an even better fuel economy of 8.4 and 5.9 L/100km, buyers can combine the 6-speed automatic with i-ELOOP, Mazda’s regenerative braking system that captures and stores electricity.
Inside the stylish 2015 Mazda6, drivers can enjoy the comfort of heated front seats (standard), and the convenience of driver’s memory position, an advanced keyless entry system, a rearview camera, and a voice-activated navigation system, depending on the model. A moonroof is also available. The usual features like steering wheel-mounted audio controls and Bluetooth are standard, and satellite radio and an 11-speaker audio system are available on the top GT trim.
If you have a taste for more luxurious features, then leather-trimmed upholstery, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and the leather-like door trim are offered as of the mid-level GS model.
Finally, the automaker’s 2015 model was awarded a top 5-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The new Mazda6 includes safety features like traction and stability control, and available technologies such as a blind spot monitoring system, lane departure warning, forward obstruction warning, and so on.
If the new 2015 Mazda6 has charmed you into considering it as your next midsize sedan, the style, comfort, driving experience, fuel efficiency and list of features will surely seal the deal. After all, the new model is “streets ahead of all the rest.”
