2021 Mazda6 new updates and features
What’s new for 2021 in the Mazda6?
If you love to drive, you belong in a Mazda. The selection of Mazda automobiles is well known for stellar design and variety that caters to just about anyone. The flagship sedan of the automaker, the Mazda6, is a popular choice among families and single drivers alike. As we move closer to the next year, it’s time to look at what’s new for 2021 in the Mazda6. While it’s mostly a refresh, a number of upgrades and features will surely catch your eye.
The 2021 Mazda6 Sport trim will come standard with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ functionality, so whether you’re an iPhone user or prefer phones with the Android operating system, if it’s a compatible phone you can sync it up to the Mazda6. An impressive array of safety features included within the i-Activsense® suite of safety technology comes standard. That means you’ll have Mazda Radar Cruise Control with stop and go functions, Advanced Smart City Brake Support with Pedestrian Detection, Smart Brake Support with Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning with Lane-Keep Assist, and Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert to provide assistance.
The MAZDA CONNECT™ system will put top-tier infotainment at your fingertips with its stunning eight-inch full color touch-screen display. The six-speaker audio system, Bluetooth® audio streaming and phone pairing, two USB inputs, a rearview camera, remote keyless entry, push-button start, and an electronic parking brake round out the other standard tech you can find in the 2021 Mazda6.
Other interior features
In addition to the tech features above, the interior will provide an exemplary experience for those inside, including a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, dual-zone climate control, and seats that are contoured for comfort. The Mazda6 Touring takes it up a notch with leatherette-trimmed seats, heated front seats, a six-way power driver’s seat with manual lumbar support, the Mazda Advanced Keyless Entry System, a power moonroof, and two rear seat USB ports. Climbing up the trim ladder to the Grand Touring adds a Bose® 11-speaker premium audio system, SiriusXM® satellite radio, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with Homelink, heated door mirrors, and steering wheel paddle shifters.
At the top of the 2021 Mazda6 lineup are the Grand Touring Reserve and the Carbon Edition. The former offers such features as a head-up Active Driving Display projected onto the windshield, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, and more. The Carbon Edition shares many of those features and puts a new look onto the whole package with its Polymetal Gray exterior paint and gloss black rear lip spoiler. The interior of the Carbon Edition offers red leather seats with black cross-stitching.
The 2021 Mazda6 is expected to roll out later in September 2020.
