After being on sale for 12 months, Mazda Australia has announced running updates to the Mazda 6 range.
For 2019, every Mazda 6 variant is now equipped with tyre pressure monitoring along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The sound system has been updated to deliver clearer FM radio. Mazda has added a second antenna to the car, expanding the overall reception range and cancelling out noise generated by secondary wave interference.
The new G-Vectoring Control Plus (GVC Plus) technology, first seen on the CX-5,is also standard across the range. The system uses the brakes to add direct yaw moment control for greater stability. The system applies light braking force to the outer wheels and assists the steering to return to the straight-ahead position when exiting a corner for more stable high-speed driving.
For the range-topping Atenza, some extra luxury has been added by way of a heated steering wheel.
Diesel power is no longer available with Mazda dropping the 2.2-litre turbo oiler from the local range.
Sport and Touring grades are now offered with the 2.5-litre naturally-aspirated petrol that produces 140kW and 252Nm.
The GT and Atenza models get the new 2.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine as standard, it develops 170kW and 420Nm.
All models use a six-speed automatic transmission to sent power to the front wheels.
Depending on the variant, prices are up between $2000-$2400 when compared to last year’s pricing.
The updated Mazda 6 range is on sale now priced from $34,490 plus on-road costs.
