2016 Mazda 6 diesel, interior, colors – The current model of the Mazda 6 has been around since the mid of 2013 so by all means, it is quite a new model. However, considering how fast the car industry is moving, it is only normal for Mazda to release a new model of the car once every few years in order to keep it fresh and on top of the competition. However, this is actually harder than it sounds and it has been certainly a challenge for them to make the new Mazda 6 2016 better than it was.
2016 Mazda 6 redesign
Just as we previously said, the entire interior of the new 2016 Mazda 6 is new. Mazda wanted this because the older car was okay but it was a bit too sporty for how it looked on the exterior. They now went for a more executive look with bigger seats which do embrace the passengers nicely and the dashboard now feeds all the information faster to the driver. There is a new infotainment system as standard with a 7 inch tablet-like screen as well as a dual zone automatic climate control system. As an option the buyer has the chance to get the optional aluminum trim or two-tone interior with real leather for the upholstery.
The exterior of the new Mazda 6 also received a small styling update with the new headlights which do seem to look like the eyes of an owl. The back also received a new bumper with an integrated diffuser and a dual exhaust system. There are six different 2016 Mazda 6 colors available: Deep Crystal Blue, Jet Black Mica, Snowflake White Pearl, Sonic Silver Mica, Soul Red Mica and Titanium Flash Mica.
Mazda 6 2016 specs
Under the hood of the new Mazda 6 2016 there is only one engine available for the US market which may come as a disappointment but this is likely going to change in the future. This is a 2.5 liter naturally aspirated inline 4 which is good for 184 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque. The fuel consumption is quite good as well with around 33 MPG for the usual model and up to 36 MPG for the car equipped with the regenerative breaking system. In the future it might also receive a 2.2 liter diesel with as much as 200 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque that would become the top of the range engine.
2016 Mazda 6 changes and price
The new Mazda 6 2016 seems to be quite a similar car to the older model at a first glance and for an untrained eye, it most certainly is. However, there are subtle changes to the car’s exterior and the interior is completely new. Mazda didn’t want to recycle a single button from the older car and those are always good news. The 2016 Mazda 6 price has been adjusted accordingly so it now costs around $24,000 for a base model and up to $31,000 for a fully equipped top of the range one which isn’t that much when you take into account how good it actually looks.
