I recently spent a week driving this 2016 Mazda Mazda6 i Grand Touring for review. A sporty, 4- cylinder vehicle that has an impressive overview. The exterior color (SOUL RED METALLIC) and design of this car is slick and modern. Inside, the mix of fabric, and stitched leather interior is equally impressive. She’s a beauty!
The 2016 Mazda Mazda6 i Grand Touring is packed with features that not only make driving more enjoyable, but a lot safer as well. My favorite, the MAZDA CONNECT™ Infotainment system on a 7″ screen, standing up on the dash. It’s very easy to use, and helps keep my eyes on the road, and not searching for knobs or buttons while driving. It’s not just the gadgets, this car also features the best in safety features. Like, Advanced dual front air bags – with crash-zone & passenger weight sensors, Blind Spot Monitoring (also a favorite of mine), Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Brake Assist and even E911 automatic emergency notification, to name just few.
Winter here in Michigan can get messy. Cold temps, snow and ice covered roads are our normal. This often makes driving stressful, and sometimes dangerous. Yet life doesn’t stop when it snows, so having a vehicle that can handle tacking on winter and get me to work every morning is important.
The second day of my review with the 2016 Mazda Mazda6 i Grand Touring, I woke to ice and several inches of snow on the ground. To be honest, I was a little worried about driving a sporty, smaller vehicle during the next few days.
Much to my surprise the 2016 Mazda Mazda6 i Grand Touring handled very well in the winter conditions. It took only minutes to defrost and clear the windshield and windows. I have to admit the heated seats are a very nice feature when the outside temperature is a high of 7 degrees. As is the Anti-lock Brake System w/ Electronic Brakeforce Distribution. Not once did I have trouble stopping, and I experienced no slipping or sliding on the snow covered roads. Again, Madza has impressed me beyond my expectations.
I also need to note that the 2016 Mazda Mazda6 i Grand Touring has the best Fuel Efficiency that I have ever experienced. I drove this car to and from my office (24 miles each way) all week, ran errands, and drove our teenager to and from school, and shopping and only used half of a tank of gas. Half! Amazing.
