2015 Mazda 6 review

What is it?

Like the updated CX-5 SUV, the main exterior changes to the 6 revolve around its grille, which takes on a more rounded shape. New LED headlight designs also feature at the rear alongside a new shark-fin radio antenna, while the range of colours has also expanded.

The 6's updates are most evident inside. Adopting a more luxurious look, Mazda has redesigned the instrument panel and lower console. New features include an electronic parking brake, a free-standing 7.0-inch infotainment screen running the firm's MZD connect service and heated rear seats.

What engines can I choose from?

The 6's engine range, which includes 2.0 and 2.5-litre Skyativ-G direct-injection petrol engines as well as a 2.2-litre Skyactiv-D diesel, has been carried over, but the diesel is now available with Mazda's latest all-wheel-drive system.

What equipment does it come with?

Additions to Mazda's suite of safety technologies include adaptive LED headlights, plus lane-keeping and driver-attention assistance systems.

There are five trim levels on offer - SE, SE Nav, SE-L, SE-L Nav and Sport Nav.

SE comes with daytime running lights, electric door mirrors, keyless start, air-conditioning and a touch-screen infotainment system as standard. SE-L adds rain-sensing wipers, climate control and front and rear parking sensors. Both SE and SE-L also come with an electronic parking brake and headlights that stay on to show you the way to your door. They also get the 7.0-inch touch screen, complete with DAB digital radio and internet connectivity via a smartphone.

Sport Nav trim gets 19-inch alloy wheels, bi-xenon headlights, a reversing camera, leather trim and keyless entry.

How much will it cost?

The Mazda 6 prices have risen slightly with the increased equipment levels, but not drastically over the current model. The entry-level saloon with the 143bhp 2.0-litre petrol in SE trim has risen by Β£200 and now starts at Β£19,795. and goes up to Β£28,795 for the higher-powered 2.2-litre diesel Tourer in Sport Nav trim complete with the automatic gearbox.
