2018 Mazda6

Over the last few years, the Mazda6 has been one of the more head-turning picks in the midsize sedan segment among Mt. Holly area drivers, and now the 2018 Mazda6 is set to bring even more excitement to the mix, including:

  • More power
  • Better fuel economy
  • Stylish new looks

Check out what we learned from the unveiling of this new Mazda sedan at the 2017 LA Auto Show, and get ready for it to arrive here at Momentum Mazda in Gastonia, NC.

Performance Boost

The Mazda6 SKYACTIV®-G 2.5L four-cylinder engine will return to the lineup for 2018 with a variety of upgrades, including a cylinder deactivation system that helps improve output and efficiency. The biggest addition, though, is a tremendous bump in available power thanks to the introduction of an available SKYACTIV®-G 2.5T turbocharged inline-four, which, until now, was only available on the Mazda CX-9.

Updated Design Inside & Out

The 2018 Mazda6 has been re-envisioned with Mazda’s newest design concept, “Mature Elegance,” in mind, and the results are downright inspired! The exterior of the new Mazda6 continues to develop the language of last year’s model, combining compose elegance with a healthy dash of sporty edginess. Updates to the exterior include:

  • More aggressive front grille design with 3D mesh
  • Additional chrome trim

Inside, passengers will recognize the Mazda6’s high quality materials, while upgraded trim and a redesign of the air vents help bring increased stature and an even cleaner look to the cabin.

New i-ACTIVSENSE® Safety Features

Mazda’s i-ACTIVSENSE® safety package already includes an incredible lineup of advanced driver assist features, but the 2018 Mazda6 gets all the latest developments of this suite, which now include:

  • Mazda Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (MDRCC) with the ability to come to a full stop automatically
  • Upgraded 360-degree bird’s eye camera
