2016 Mazda 6 2.2 Skyactiv-D 175 Sport Nav review
This range-topping Mazda 6 Saloon gets better engine refinement and chassis tweaks; it remains a strong contender in the class
The Mazda 6 Saloon was only facelifted last year, but the Japanese manufacturer has seen fit to deliver another nip and tuck to add tech and improve refinement.The main addition is G-Vectoring Control, or GVC. It might sound like a hopeful X-Factor boyband, but GVC is a system designed to help cornering and high-speed stability, and it’s being rolled out on every new Mazda 6 – in time every Mazda will get it. Other tweaks to the 6 for 2016 include better engine refinement and a more positive throttle response.Cars in this segment need to keep fresh to stop buyers flocking to SUVs, and there’s plenty of competition for the Mazda 6 in the form of the Ford Mondeo, Skoda Superb, and Volkswagen Passat – even if they are all more practical than fun.
