Mazda announced the launch of new versions of their best-selling family cars in the American market with the 2017 Mazda3 and Mazda6. Well, maybe new is not the right word to use here as both vehicle get only slight touch-ups here and there in terms of design. But they do get some cool new features.
The visual tweaks on the 2017 Mazda3 include a bolder grille, available LED headlights and tail lights and a revised rear bumper, while inside the cabin you can now order perforated black or almond-colored leather seating and a new and improved steering wheel. Equipment-wise, the biggest highlight is the addition of standard G-Vectoring Control (GVC) which is a system that uses inputs from steering, throttle inputs and suspension to improve the handling of the car. You also get new storage spaces, an electronic parking brake, and optional Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring and Traffic Sign Recognition and Active Driving Display.
As for the 2017 Mazda6, the sporty sedan also gets the all-new G-Vectoring Control (GVC) as part of its suit of SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS technologies. But the car is also improved in other areas, such as improved door seals, tighter tolerance between panels and sound insulation materials for lower NVH levels and therefore more comfort. What’s more, depending on the model you can have Nappa leather seating, black headliner and heated steering wheel, heated rear outboard seats, i-ELOOP regenerative braking technology and a bright metallic finish as well as full-color Active Driving Display.
