3 Major Improvements to the 2018 Mazda6 GS
May 23rd , 2018
When Westowne Mazda got wind of the changes to Mazda6’s popular 2017 model, we were all ears. After promising to be a major upgrade from 2017’s already top-notch model, the 2018 Mazda6 GS has delivered: first with its subtle, sleek outer appearance upgrades, then with its stylish, enhanced interior and high-powered engine. After careful analysis of both last year and this year’s models, we picked out what we believe are the top three improvements to the Mazda6 GS below.
More Trim Options
For the past several 3 and 6 series models, Mazda has offered their sedans and hatchbacks in three main options: Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring. Designers of the 2018 model have decided to step it up a notch by adding the Signature trim, an all-new line of luxury unsurpassed by former Mazda models. The Mazda6 GS Signature upgrade options feature Nappa leather interior with high-end wood accents and UltraSuede® Nu-trim; an eight-inch MAZDA CONNECT™ touchscreen interface, a digital centre gauge cluster, and much more.
The Signature model isn’t the only upgraded Mazda6 GS trim in terms of luxury. All 2018 models have received quite the interior facelift, featuring upgrades on dashboard design, cabin insulation, safety systems, and the audio-visual technology on the touchscreen interface. Thanks to the plush leather interior option available for the Touring, Grand Touring, and Signature trims, your family’s daily commute and spontaneous excursions will become that much more comfortable and exciting.
More Powerful Than Ever
Arguably the most anticipated upgrade, Mazda6’s engine now comes in two options instead of one: Not only has the 2.5-liter SKYACTIV®-G four-cylinder engine been refined, but there is now a turbocharged 2.5-liter SKYACTIV®-G 2.5T four-cylinder powertrain option available, which features 250 horsepower, 310 pound-feet of torque, and standard G-Vectoring control technology. Performance enthusiasts can rejoice over the 2018 model’s thrills and efficiency, as it is, in our opinion, Mazda6’s best model yet.
