For 2017, the Mazda6 gained a few new upscale refinements that included upgraded sound insulation, available Nappa leather seats, and more. Recently, Mazda announced a few more updates for its resident midsize sedan midway through the 2017 model year.
Appropriately named the 2017.5 Mazda6, this updated version of the sedan will be visually identical to the earlier 2017 models, but it’ll boast tweaks to its equipment list.
The 2017.5 Mazda6 Sport — the base trim — gains standard blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic assist. This addition solidifies Mazda’s position as a leader in safety, as it joins the already standard rearview camera and available Smart City Brake Support low-speed automatic braking, automatic headlights, and rain-sensing wipers.
Moving into the midrange Touring trim, the 2017.5 changes add available leather seating and an eight-way power driver’s seat to the Touring Premium Package.
Other than these changes, all else remains exactly the same.
These changes bring no updates to the Mazda6’s pricing, as it ranges from $21,945 in the Sport trim with a six-speed manual transmission to $30,695 in the Grand Touring trim. These prices do not include the $875 destination charge.
The 2017.5 Mazda6 is available in showrooms now.
