Mazda has always been one of the better manufacturers for regularly updating their products to keep them ahead of the curve, and for 2017 it’s the turn of the Mazda6 to benefit from a little fiddling. From the outside, you perhaps wouldn’t know anything has changed, save for a new Machine Grey metallic paint finish and indicators built-in to the door mirrors.
