Mazda6 base price increases for 2017 model year

The entry-level Sport trim has been bumped by $450.

Mazda has announced pricing details for the 2017 Mazda6 lineup.

The entry-level Sport trim with a six-speed manual transmission now fetches $22,780 (including $835 freight), representing a $450 increase over the 2016 model year.

The Mazda6 received a significant overhaul just a few years ago. The 2017 update consequently focuses on tech and comfort enhancements rather than aesthetic changes.

G-Vectoring Control (GVC) is arguably the most important addition, arriving as a standard feature on all trim levels. The system monitors steering input and manages engine torque to balance lateral and longitudinal forces, optimizing vertical load on each wheel to improve cornering stability.

The sedan also gains improved interior materials for the 2017 model year, with improved sound-deadening provisions and enhanced door sealing on all variants. The Grand Touring edition also boasts an upgraded head-up display unit and laminated front side windows.

The 2017 Mazda6 is scheduled to arrive in US showrooms this September.
