2021 Mazda6 gets updates and Carbon Edition

2021 Mazda6 gets updates and Carbon Edition

The 2021 Mazda6 has been unveiled and shows us exactly what we’re in for next year. The Mazda sedan is a fantastic alternative to the multitude of crossovers and German commuter cars and is worthy of investigation if you value looks, feel and driving dynamics.

The Mazda6 is a family sedan with sporty pretensions. It has a great design with low front end, smooth curves, rounded edges and superb interiors. The new model looks to continue that trend.

2021 Mazda6

The 2021 Mazda6 continues largely unchanged except a couple of modest updates. First, the Skyactiv-G 2.5 turbo engine has been tweaked to increase output to 250 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque. That’s 10 lb-ft more than the current engine. A new turbo badge tells the world what’s under the hood.

The 2021 Mazda6 also has updated infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility built in. Wireless CarPlay will also be available on the Grand Touring trim.

Then there’s the Carbon Edition. This special edition is working out quite well for Mazda and we have covered it before. The main selling point is the Polymetal Gray colour with black trim. It’s a very effective upgrade that completely changes the character of the car.

Black 19 inch alloy wheels, black door mirrors and trunk lid spoiler all add to the effect.

Inside, the cabin also gets the black trim treatment alongside red leather seating. It’s a great combination that adds a feeling of class as well as comfort.

The Carbon Edition also adds a head-up display, adaptive headlights, heated and ventilated front seats, heated steering wheel and heated rear seats to the Mazda6. Even more reason to order one!

Press release from Mazda:

“From its distinctive styling and crafted interior to its engaging driving dynamics, the Mazda6 delivers an appeal unlike other midsize sedans. A long list of advanced technologies and safety features conveys a quiet confidence. The new Carbon Edition furthers the Mazda6’s individuality and helps reflects the owner’s discerning tastes. Mazda North American Operations today announces the 2021 Mazda6 will arrive in dealerships later this month.”

“New this year, the Carbon Edition shares similar features to the Mazda6 Grand Touring Reserve and adds unique styling to encourage fans to go against the grain. The Carbon Edition features Polymetal Gray exterior paint, gloss black rear lip spoiler, gloss black door mirrors and 19-inch black metallic aluminum alloy wheels.

“The interior has red leather seats with black cross stitching and black hairline interior accents on the dash and door panels. The dash and center console armrest add red stitching to help bring the color scheme together.”

While the Mazda6 isn’t all about the Carbon Edition, it is definitely the Mazda to get if you like the look!
