Aesthetically speaking, there is nothing different about the 2017 version

If it’s functionality you’re interested in, however, the Mazda6 offers a number of new features, such as the G-Vectoring Control (also known as GVC) system, for example - an electronic support system helps the driver to perform sharp turns naturally and concisely. The chassis, meanwhile, is slightly more rigid, but this can prove beneficial on motorways when it comes to driving pleasure.

Even the changes made within the passenger compartment are minimal, although they do help to improve comfort levels; indeed, the driver and front passenger are no longer the only ones that will find themselves comfortably seated, since those on the rear bench seat will also now get a comfortable ride. The front seats are comfortable, as confirmed over the course of longer journeys, but the rear bench seat is firmer. In any case, the interior of the vehicle is very well finished and we were certainly happy with it during the test drives; after all, what we’re talking about here is the height of elegance and aesthetic appeal.

No changes have been made to the controls for the infotainment system in relation to the previous model. It is similar to the BMW iDrive infotainment system but less easy to use.

Mazda has introduced a multitude of onboard aids with the Mazda6 to make day-to-day driving easier and above all ensure safety. The i-ACTIVSENSE technologies have been updated, but the most significant development is the new movement detection camera. The Mazda6 is available with a choice of 4 engines - 2 petrol and 2 diesel. We test drove the 175hp diesel engine, with the car consuming an average 6.8L/100km (on a mixed cycle) over the course of the test.
