Countryside Cruisin: 2017 Mazda6 Grand Touring

I received this car from DriveShop for a 7 day test drive.  All opinions are my own.


There is nothing I love more than road tripping.  Gone are the days of simply getting into the car with the family and taking a drive to places unknown.  With Drive Shop I have been able to do just that.  This time we took the kids out to the country and to a popular Atlanta Festival.  I think that everyone should get a change take the scenic route in the 2017 Mazda6 Grand Touring.

2017 Mazda6 Grand Touring

Since I got to test drive the 2016 Mazda6 Grand Touring last year, I was excited to see what was upgraded and what stayed the same with the 2017.  This fully loaded luxury vehicle came in Machine Gray Metallic for the exterior and Parchment Nappa Leather for the interior.  The contrast was real and the white went well with the Black Leather accents.


With 5 – passenger seating capacity, this ragtag group of teenagers fit perfectly in the back seat.  One of them is over 6 feet tall so when I tell you there is plenty of leg room in the back please believe it.


I did something different on this test drive that I haven’t ever done before and that’s open the hood and look at the engine!  I just had to get a look at the 184 Horsepower Sky Activ – G engine.  This vehicle gets 35 EPA -EST Highway MPG.  Woow!


Can we raise the roof for the Pollen Filter that comes with the Dual Zone Climate Control?  What a thoughtful addition.  If you live in Georgia then you understand how important this feature is.


Other features that stood out:

7.0 Touch Screen Display

Driver’s Seat Memory

Collision Warning

Close Proximity Warning

These are all very helpful features that help to make each drive safe and comfortable.

The BOSE CenterPoint2 Surround Sound Audio System with 11 speakers.  The clarity of the sound blew me away.  The Bluetooth capability allowed me to bring my own tunes into the car.


Over all this vehicle has everything you need when it comes to luxury, comfort, style and safety.  Whether you want to fill it with kids to take a ride in the country or get dressed up to take it for a drive in the city with your mate, this car has it.  As with ALL Mazda automobiles this one comes with 3 YR/36 K mile Bumper to Bumper Warranty and a 5 Yr / 65k mile Warranty.
