The Mazda6 Saloon was updated for 2015 to build on the success of previous variants. A more aggressive new look, exciting and economical performance and even more of the latest in-car technology are some of the new model's attractions.
The saloon's dynamic form marks the evolution of Mazda's unique styling approach which is known as KODO: Soul of Motion design. Muscular shapes, sharp folds and a confident posture draw attention to the body and stir the emotions of any committed driver. Halogen headlamps with daytime running lights and front fog lights provide optimum illumination of the road and create a striking look day and night. Alloy wheels are standard fit and chrome trims around the windows hint at the luxury that is found within the cabin.
From the minute you take your seat, the Mazda6 Saloon's premium build quality becomes clearer still. The steering wheel and gear stick are both coated in soft-touch leather, while similarly refined materials stretch across the dashboard and doors. All of these areas have been arranged intuitively to make driving much easier and therefore enjoyable, as well as to maximise the space available. Up to 480 litres of luggage can be carried in the boot and when you fold the rear bench this amount increases significantly.
Mazda set out to make the saloon one of the most technologically advanced on the road, no matter which specification you choose, and the standard equipment list shows this aim. All variants come with a Mazda Multimedia System and DAB radio which you can operate safely via the Multimedia Commander positioned between driver and front passenger. Information is shown through a 7" colour touch-screen display mounted on the dash, and online services can be accessed when you link a compatible smartphone using the integrated Bluetooth® function.
Mazda's SKYACTIV Technology has been incorporated with the engines, body and chassis. Buyers have the option of a SKYACTIV-G petrol or SKYACTIV-D diesel engine. For the quickest response when you dip the accelerator, choose the 175ps 2.2-litre diesel which powers from 0-60mph in less than eight seconds. If lower running costs are your priority, opt for the frugal 150ps 2.2-litre diesel which returns up to 68.9mpg combined.
Safer motoring is a major strength of the 2015 Mazda6 Saloon. It has been designed to lessen the chance of an accident taking place and protects occupants extremely well if you were to be involved in a collision. The SKYACTIV-Body is a strong 'triple H' structure that absorbs impact forces to lessen the effect on you and your passengers. For extra assurance the manufacturer has added Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) with Traction Control System (TCS), Hill Hold Assist (HHA) and Emergency Stop Signalling System (ESS) at no extra cost.
