Mazda6 - now available with an effortless brand of power that’s sure to elevate your mood.
The Mazda6 sets your mind and body at ease with reducing wind and road noise so you and your passengers can have clear conversation.
We want you and your passengers to feel the comfort. If you drive across long distances, your body will feel like you just went across short distances.
The Ultrasuede® trim that lines the doors and dashboard features is a subtle sheen derived from a similar technique used to make traditional Japanese kimonos.
Maneuvering in and out of tight spaces is a challenge for every driver. We’ve made it a lot easier with our available 360° View Monitor. It uses four cameras to display the car’s periphery on the center display. Additionally, parking sensors at the front and rear help detect proximity to obstacles. It’s all about giving you, the driver, a full picture of your surroundings.
This 2.0-liter engine features a balance between the spirited drive of its powerful low- to mid-range torque and excellent fuel efficiency. New air intake port, new shapes of piston in the areas of its top/edge of top/skirt, new piston rings, new fuel injection system and Water Flow Management system are incorporated. These changes increase low-end torque by 6.2 percent, while also reducing real-world fuel consumption and particulate matter formation during combustion. The result is enhanced levels of dynamic performance, fuel economy, and environmental friendliness. With a high 13.0:1 compression ratio, the reduced weight of an aluminum-alloy cylinder block, and a balancer unit that reduces low frequency rattling, the SKYACTIV-G 2.5 engine achieves high levels of dynamic performance, fuel economy and quietness.
Mazda’s Skyactiv-Vehicle Dynamics with G-Vectoring Control helps achieve a smoother, less fatiguing drive. When cornering, the system works seamlessly by adjusting power delivery.
The system shuts down two of the engine’s four cylinders in light-load situations, such as when cruising at a constant speed. Running on two cylinders reduces pumping loss and mechanical resistance. Deactivation is achieved via a switching mechanism in the hydraulic lash adjusters (HLA) of the ﬁrst and fourth cylinders. When running on all four cylinders, these serve as the fulcrum (pivot point) for each rocker arm, and the arms operate the intake and exhaust valves. Automated releasing of lockpin in HLA switches the fulcrum to the valve side, stopping the movement of the valves to deactivate the outer two cylinders. Airﬂow intake volume, fuel injection amount and ignition timing are precisely controlled to allow the engine to switch smoothly between two-cylinder and four-cylinder operation. Cylinder deactivation is more effective at low speeds, improving fuel economy by approximately 20 percent when driving at a constant 40km/h, and by approximately 5 percent at a constant 80km/h.
ALH offers the driver greater support for recognizing potential hazards when driving at night. The system improves night visibility and helps the driver avoid hazardous situations by combining the use of auto-controlled Glare-free High Beam (featuring an adjustable illumination range via a 20-split LED array) and Wide-range Low Beam.
A forward sensing camera detects lane markings and assists the steering to keep you in lane. The system also alerts you when it judges an unintended lane departure is imminent by vibrating the steering wheel or with an audible alarm. When the system determines lane departure is intentional (use of turn signals, etc) steering assistance is cancelled and no warnings are given. The system operates at speeds above approximately 60km/h.
BSM uses 24GHz quasi-milliwave radar sensors to detect vehicles in the blind spots behind and to the side, and using a turn signal while BSM detects a vehicle triggers visual and audio warnings.
AFS promotes safer driving by allowing you to see further at intersections or around curves at night. Taking inputs from the steering angle and vehicle speed, AFS predicts the shape of the road and directs the headlamps' beams in the direction of travel, illuminating the path Mazda 6 will actually follow.
LDWS senses lane markings on the road surface. When the system predicts departure from the lane it issues an audible warning similar to the noise a car makes when it runs onto a rumble strip to prompt timely steering corrections. The system assesses driver inputs such as use of the turn signals to weed out false alarms.
RCTA uses the same sensors as BSM to alert the driver when it detects vehicles approaching from either side during reversing operations. Warnings are given by a ﬂashing indicator in the door mirror and a beep.
With the high-performance forward sensing camera, Advanced SCBS detects vehicles and pedestrians* in front of the vehicle and automatically applies the brakes to help avoid collisions and mitigate collision damage while driving between approximately 4 and 80km/h (sensing a vehicle ahead) or between approximately 10 and 80km/h (sensing a pedestrian). *Detection of pedestrians and consequent automatic braking are not available in certain countries and regions.
Ultrasonic sensors mounted on the rear bumper allow SCBS R to detect vehicles and obstacles behind when reversing at speeds between approximately 2 and 8km/h. If an object is detected, the system automatically applies the brakes to help mitigate collision damage.
DAA uses information such as steering wheel angle, vehicle speed, and output from the forward sensing camera to assess the driver's condition and help prevent accidents caused by fatigue or lowered alertness. The system monitors and compares current behaviour with learned data on how the driver performs when fresh, and suggests a rest break when a significant difference is detected.
