Mazda ups Safety Tech on 2016 Mazda6

Mazda6 gets full safety equipment as standard.

Mazda has announced that all grades of the popular mid-size car will now come as standard with safety equipment that was previously offered as optional extras.

The safety systems and technologies include Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), Rear-view mirror with auto dimming function and Smart City Brake Support – Forward (SCBS-F).

Best of all, the inclusion of the Mazda i-ACTIVSENSE safety technologies as standard hasn’t affected Mazda6 prices. While Mazda has also confirmed the range-topping Mazda6 Atenza is also in line for a price reduction of up to $1,380 (diesel).

Mazda Australia marketing director Alastair Doak telling Behind the Wheel Car News that the Mazda6 is now even more attractive.

“If you are in the market for an extremely safe, stylish, dynamic and highly sophisticated car that comes without the price tag, then it is hard to go past the Mazda6,”

“The Mazda6 has an array of cutting edge i-ACTIVSENSE safety features that are now standard across the range.

“Even better is that they come at no added cost, in-fact prices have come down. It’s a value proposition that is difficult to ignore.”
