2016 Mazda6 is turning heads at Las Vegas dealerships

The 2016 Mazda6 was designed to turn heads and it’s doing just that at Henderson Mazda in the Valley Automall.

Newly designed, the 2016 Mazda6 is considered the perfect combination of impressive body style and a selection of power plants. The vehicle is the result of quality aerodynamics and impressive engineering.

Dealership sales agent Sergio Brooks, a 15-year veteran of the car business, said the Mazda6 has received strong accolades.

“It’s one of the best products that Mazda has put out in years,” Brooks said.

The Mazda6 has been awarded the “Highest Ranged Vehicle Among Midsize Cars” by J.D. Power and Car and Driver “10 Best” for 2014 and 2015. The 2016 MX6 features linear acceleration, deceleration and steering that work together to unite the car with the driver. Deemed the 100 Meter Promise, the vehicle is hailed for its level of performance.

The 2016 Mazda6 is available in three models. Included is the Mazda6 Sport, theMazda6 Touring and the Mazda6 Grand Touring. Each Mazda6 model is powered by a 184 horsepower 2.5L SKYACTIV, 16-valve four cylinder engine with variable valve timing along with 185 pounds of torque at 3,250 RPM. Yet another key factor in the success of the Mazda6 is that it gets an Environmental Protection Agency rating ranging from 25 city and 37 highway miles to the gallon for the models with manual transmission. Models with the Technology Package get as much as 40 miles to the gallon with SKYACTIV Technology.

The suspension of the Mazda6 also has a long line of standard features, including MacPherson strut front suspension with stabilizer bar, engine-speed-sensing variable Electric Power Assist Steering and power-assisted four-wheel disc brakes. Additionally, the front suspension has Traction Control System and Dynamic Stability Control along with anti-lock brake system with electronic brakeforce distribution.

The i-ACTIVSENSE feature provides the ideal safety package with Lane Departure Warning System, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Blind Spot Monitoring, Smart City Brake Support and Smart Brake Support, Mazda Radar Cruise Control and Distance Recognition Support System. An available 11-speaker premium Bose Centerpoint 2 Audio system is among the many features that can be included in the 2016 Mazda6.

The Mazda6 is one of the only cars in its class to have Heads Up Display with vehicle speed, Navigational Directions, Safety Alerts and Cruise Control Data. Yet another interesting feature, the i-ELOOP, a regenerative engine braking system that stores energy with a highly efficient capacitor that activates when the driver lifts his or her foot off the accelerator.

The 2016 Mazda6 has a three-year, 36,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty, three-year, 36,000-mile 24/7 emergency roadside assistance program, five-year, 60,000-mile powertrain limited warranty and a five-year unlimited mileage warranty against body rust-through (anti-perforation limited warranty).
