2017 Mazda6 Atenza Design and Specifications — There are so many reasons why Australians love Mazda6. Some like it because of its excellent ‘Kodo’ design language, and some admire the rigid yet very versatile chassis while some others purchase it due to its engine efficiency.
Because of those reasons, the Mazda6 has outsold the likes of Subaru Liberty, Honda Accord, and even VW Passat. It means, this car only needs to surpass Camry to become the bestselling car in the country. If the previous Mazda6 cannot achieve that level yet, the refreshed 2017 Mazda6 probably can, especially with the range-topping feature-packed Atenza leading the lineup.
2017 Mazda6 Atenza Specifications
This mid-cycle refresh fixes everything the 2017 Mazda6 Atenza car is considered lacking. Especially in the design department. Now, the Atenza trim comes with more premium cabin material and style such as Nappa leather seats with gray accents, 8-way power adjusted the front seat, three-spoke steering wheel with neatly placed buttons, sunroof, and a decent yet very useful screen.
In addition to the premium materials, it also gets better safety features that include adaptive cruise control, active safety suite and pedestrian detection.
The SkyActiv engine lineup is an essential part of Mazda6 success. So, there is no way it will be replaced something else for the mid-cycle refresh. The range-topping 2017 Mazda6 Atenza is powered by 2.5 L 4-cylinder SkyActiv engine that delivers 138 kW at 5,700 RPM. And, 250 Nm of torque at 3,250 RPM.
The engine is paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission. And, the power is sent exclusively to the front wheels. Moreover, it is reported that the car can sprint to 60 km/hour from a standstill in less than 4 seconds or 3.93 seconds to be exact.
At first glance, maybe you think that nothing is interesting regarding the powertrain and the performance. Particularly as it is not turbocharged like almost every car in this segment. But the lack of turbochargers is not something to worry about.
