Mazda has been hard at work, making significant changes to several models in back-to-back years. For example, the Mazda6 gets a new interior in 2015, and new sheet metal in 2016 – all of this following a redesign in 2014.
The re-engineered 2015 Mazda6 will arrive at Parks Mazda and dealerships nationwide in the first quarter of next year. Mazda’s midsize sedan gets a new center console and a thinner dashboard that sits lower in the cabin. In addition, a new, thinner infotainment screen will sit on top of the dash, instead of within it. The overall interior design will more closely resemble the current Mazda3, and be more upscale than the current Mazda6.
Mazda6 updates continue in 2016 with the addition of the Mazda Connect infotainment system that has debuted on the Mazda3. A new front fascia including LED headlights will also make its way, along with sheet metal updates.
Mazda says it’s currently in the middle of its sixth generation product, which is defined by the deployment of its SKYACTIV vehicle platform and powertrain and its new “kodo” design language. The seventh generation will be marked by the roll out of all-new platforms and sheet metal for all of its cars over a five to six year period, beginning in 2018 with a redesigned Mazda3.
