Spectacular cars always find their buyers only for the fact that they do not aspire to be like the others. Mazda 6 series sold well and without updates, but the Japanese have followed their pre-prepared plans and decided to add fuel to the fire, presenting a new generation in 2017 – 2018 to the market.
Sedan class of D segment is quite complicated in competitive terms. Today, all world-known manufacturers are represented at this class, and each of them brings to their cars something interesting. The buyer, looking at photos and pacing for a test drive these sedans, gets great difficulty in choosing.
Predatory style of concern cars became the trend more than ten years ago. Until today, the company provides only a slight restyling most of its lineup. Photos of the previous generation can be actively compared with the 2014 model and looked for a number of differences:
- narrowing of the forecarriage and creating a sense of less aggressive car;
- refinement of lines, visual increase of the vehicle;
- Use of larger diameter wheels;
- complete change of interior – a familiar feature of the car.
There are a lot of differences, but they are all in the details. And there not always visible pictured. You can safely say that the 6 series perfectly evolved with the creation of a new design, but you can have the same confidence that the “six” will get negative reviews too.
The problem is that Japanese corporation’s design of the last years began to yield considerable criticism. Cars change a little. Photo of a decade ago can be compared with the 2014 model, and there would be a lot in common. But have been all the truth hidden in the photo? Many believe that preserving the traditions of design is a great decision that is worthy of respect.
