While all the attention may have been on the new baby-ute Mazda CX-3 that is joining the Mazda family, a couple of vehicles were given some mid-cycle refreshes by Mazda. The Mazda 6, which in my opinion still had a pretty fresh design was given a quick nip and tuck for the 2016 model year. The most obvious change is the revised grill which we saw Mazda CX-3. The newer grill really works with the larger profile of the Mazda6 mid-sized body. The new grill almost blends right into the LED portion of the redesigned headlights giving the front end more seamless look. The interior was not left alone as Mazda replaced the smaller built in infotainment screen with a larger free-standing screen that many automakers seem to be going with despite how ugly it looks. Under the hood, nothing is changed. This update just brings the Mazda6 in line with all the newer models that have come out since giving the lineup a more cohesive look.

The CX-5 received similar interior updates as the Mazda6 with the addition of the updated infotainment system first launched in the
2015 Mazda3. Mechanically, the updated CX-5 sees the addition of an electric parking brake and newly designed wheels. Of course as with all facelifts the headlights and taillights have been updated with some trims getting LED lighting. Exclusive to Mazda6 is the addition of a unique addition to the car’s nighttime lighting signature, as the distinctive five-point grille is edge-lit on certain trim levels.
