Whoever wants to know about the 2020 Mazda 6 release date, it will start selling in the U.S. this fall with prices starting at $24,000.
After being refreshed, the 2020 Mazda 6 shows a few minor changes compared to the previous year’s model. The most striking difference lies in its new key fob. As for the top-of-the-line Signature variant, a new badge has been slapped on its trunk. And that’s all.
Minor changes don’t reduce the stylishness of the new Mazda 6, especially the base sport model which looks nice with 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, and rain-sensing windscreen wipers. The car is also equipped with a rear-view camera, dual exhaust pipes, and LED taillights.
On the inside, the Mazda 6 is well equipped with standard gear such as an 8-inch Mazda Connect infotainment system, a dual-zone climate control system, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. There are also other features like a six-speaker sound system, a push-button start, Bluetooth connectivity, and a couple of ports.
In terms of safety, the Mazda 6 is backed by the i-ACTIVSENSE suite of driver assistance features that include the Mazda Radar Cruise Control with stop & go function, Smart Brake support with collision warning, Advanced Smart City Brake Support from Mazda with pedestrian detection, Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and Lane Departure Warning with Lane-Keep Assist.
Output comes from a 2.5-liter Skyactiv-G mill that makes 187 horsepower and 186 pound feet of torque. The engine is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission.
The Mazda 6 Touring is priced from $26,600 and it gets additional gear like 19-inch alloy wheels, heated front seats, and leatherette upholstery. Other features include a power moonroof, a six-way power driver’s seat, and dual USB charging ports. It also gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility as well as an advanced keyless entry system.
Going up to the Grand Touring trim, the price climbs to $29,700 but customers get a turbocharged 2.5-liter powerplant generating up to 250 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. To make it more capable in handling that performance, Mazda equips it with larger front brakes.
The Grand Touring also comes with an auto-dimming rearview mirror, side mirrors, and Sirius XM satellite radio with a three-month free trial, in addition to steering wheel mounted paddle shifters and an 11-speaker Bose sound system.
Offering more luxury is the Grand Touring Reserve trim which costs from $32,200, adding a rear spoiler, signature LED headlights, and power folding side mirrors.
The interior is complemented by a heated steering wheel, heated & ventilated leather seats, and heated rear seats. A color head-up display is also there, as well as a 6-way power passenger seat and an 8-way power driver’s seat with a memory function to remember settings.
For more advanced luxury, buyers can choose the Mazda 6 Signature that comes with a gunmetal front grille, LED ambient lighting, frameless rearview mirrors, Japanese Sen wood trim, Nappa leather, and UltraSuede accents. All this luxury will set you back at $35,300.
On the technology front, the range-topping model boasts a 7-inch digital gauge screen, a 360-degree View Monitor, and GPS navigation. The car also has traffic sign recognition technology, front and back parking assist sensors, and a free three-year subscription to Sirius XM’s Traffic and Travel Link. Last but not least, it’s worth noting that all prices mentioned here don’t include delivery fee ranging from $920 to $965.
