The upper echelon for this midsize sedan is the Mazda6 Signature, an aspiration trim level brimming with premium amenities. One can’t help but notice the gunmetal front grille, that helps provide an aggressive appearance inviting all to step inside. The sophisticated interior is available in either Parchment or Deep Chestnut Nappa leather and adorned with authentic Japanese Sen wood and gilded UltraSuede interior accents. A 360º View Monitor with front and rear parking sensors, seven-inch TFT reconfigurable digital gauge display, Mazda navigation system and SiriusXM three-year Traffic and Travel Link subscription add to the convenient and safety features of the Mazda6. The black headliner, frameless rearview mirror, LED ambient lights and unique stitching on the leather-wrapped steering wheel complete the heightened look and feel. https://testdrivenow.com/2019-mazda-mazda6-signature-quick-takes/ AS SHOWN WITH SOUL RED CRYSTAL PAINT AND PARCHMENT NAPPA LEATHER.

Mazda’s engineers could have left well enough alone for their award-winning family vehicle but instead continue to make meaningful improvements to benefit drivers and passengers in all three rows. Among the updates are a refined, retuned suspension that offers a smoother, quieter and more natural ride and greater sound suppression by way of a thicker headliner and thicker floor mats, which aid in ease of conversation and enjoyment.
Mazda has a vision for its future that looks and feels more premium even when it comes to their entry level sedan. This is the all new Mazda3. Its stylish design may just win your heart and render you accepting of its faults.
The 2019 Mazda3 sets a new milestone as the first production model to lead Mazda into a bold new era. Blending beautiful design and exhilarating driving dynamics, Mazda3 was developed to inspire and create an emotional bond with its customers in two very distinct ways. A completely new design approach was taken when styling the sedan and hatchback, each embodying strikingly different personalities. The 2019 Mazda3 will be introducing new package options meant to appeal to a wide range of customers.
